We’ve come to the end of this little series and I’ve had a good time exploring the world of colour and it made me realise that I can get away with wearing more colour on a day to day basis. I’ve also realised that the easiest way, or the way I find easiest, to inject a bit of colour into my makeup is through eye shadow rather than anything else, however this could be because I’m still afraid of experimenting with lip colours. I thought to round off this segment by sharing the best and the worst of the bunch, let’s go!
Green is my favourite colour but I don’t use it on my eyes very much. Doing the trent army theme for fancy dress at least once a term whilst being at university I’ve got used to using the colour in creative ways. Let’s get going!
Mac Painterly Paint Pot to prime as usual and then straight in with some neutral shades. I used Truth from the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette all over the lid as a base and then went in with Undone on the outer part of the lid and Downfall in the crease. Now it’s time to go in with the green. I decided to focus on the lash line so it’s kind of subtle but at the same time when the eyes are open all you can see is green. Taking Dragon from the Urban Decay Palette on an angled brush I swept it close to the lash line and then blended it out into the lid. Then I went in a little darker with the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Kaki Repstyle but kept it even closer to the lash line. I finished off the eyes with the Rimmel Kohl Kajal in Sable Brown and the Seventeen Back Lash Mascara.
This wasn’t the most successful colour in this rainbow takeover series but I think that this could look really cool (if someone with better skill than me did it) but I don’t think the pink polo shirt I’m wearing in the photos helps, great planning there Abz well done!
As one ‘blog bit’ comes to an end, another one begins. To replace the face fights which has graced Thursdays on my blog for nearly two months now I’ve decided to make it all about colour. Each week I’ll be going through the colours of the rainbow and incorporating them into a makeup look. I’m really excited to try this out, some of the colours might not work out but it’s all about experimenting! Most of the focus will be on the eyes, because that’s the easiest way to inject a bit of colour, but I’ll be trying out lips and maybe a bit of highlight action, you never know! So stayed tune on Thursday’s for that.
