Now it’s summertime which means it’s all about mixing bright and bold shadows to create a beautiful blended found in eye makeup newest trend – color blocking shadows.
Stars like NICKI MINAJ, who is the spokesperson for MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign, are known for both sporting this trend.
Orange, blues, yellows, and greens are complimenting every skin tone under the summer sun and you too can wear this look.
Whether you’re a bold beauty or a subtle sweetie, here’s how you can create the color blocked shadow look:
1. Take two or more bold hues of your choice and place the lighter color from lash line to brow bone. Be sure to blend the lighter color from the crease of your eye, above. (Try MAC Eye Shadow Atlantic Blue $13)
2. Then, using a pencil-tipped brush and your darker shadow, use the windshield wiper motion and apply shadow. Start at the outside of your crease, and work your way in. (To ensure that the shadows blend and contrast, make sure the darker shade does not fall to the crease, and that it doesn’t blend into your lighter shade).
3. Finish it off with the 2-3 coats of mascara. (Try MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara $14)
1. Use the same technique described above, placing your lighter color from crease to above.
Tip: Try to use matte colors like MAC Eye Shadow Passionate to make the look more discreet yet stunning.
