SOFTEN UP!

TUTORIAL & PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN

The best way to transition from Spring into Summer is with a Pastel Eye! It’s light and airy and really compliments the pastel fashion of the S/S14 runways. There are many ways you can pull this off and today I’ve narrowed it down to three: lashline only, upper lid or both lids. Of course you can swap any of the colors with any of the applications. Or choose a pale green or another pastel that you love! Here’s how to do each:

TOOLS:

LASHLINE ONLY:

  1. Trace the liquid liner along the lashline from the inner corner to the outer corner.
  2. Go back over it (I had to a couple of times) to make it more intense and less sheer.

UPPER LID ONLY:

  1. Apply the shadow all over the lid and crease with a shadow brush.
  2. Repeat if you need more intensity.

UPPER & LOWER LIDS:

  1. Apply the shadow all over the lid and crease of the upper lid with a shadow brush.
  2. Sweep the same shadow along the lower lashline as well.

Please tag us if you try one of these or a pastel of your own!

 

SHADOW FOCUS: EYE COLOR

Yes most neutral shades (taupe, grey, nude, bronze, copper, white, etc) look just as gorgeous with green eyes as with any other eye colors. But if you really want to make your green eyes pop, frame them with a shade from the purple family and you will become obsessed! Of course you shouldn’t wear purple every day because it’s such a statement color, but bring it out whenever you really want to turn heads. (more…)
