Good Afternoon Munchkins!
As promised, here is the EOTD where I show you possible ways to wear neon colours! I actually wanted to write this post months ago but kind of lost the inspiration for it and forgot how to do it, until now! I can’t remember if this is exactly how I did it before but I really liked how it turned out today and so why I’ve decided to show it to you! I would definitely wear this to a party with some liner and some nude gloss and I hope I encourage you guys to do or feel the same, also!
As you can see, the metallic pink merges so seamlessly with the darker shade to create this stunning look. I feel like this is a really easy smokey eye so, of course, if you want to intensify it, you can add any other bits you love in a smokey eye, but I managed to do this within 3 simple steps.
The first thing I did for this look was, obviously, prime and set my eyes with a little bit of powder. This will just help the longevity of the look and also intensify the pink shadow. I then went into my Sleek i-Divine Palette in Oh So Special (available from Boots and Superdrug) and took the shade The Mail, which is this light, orange-toned brown and popped this into my crease. With colours like this, I really emphasise how far up I blend it and tend to stop just below where my brow bone highlight would be. This isn’t for everyone but it’s just something I like in order to create a steady gradient. I just used a rounded, dense blending brush to do this. From the same palette, I took the colour Wrapped Up and applied this much more softly into my crease and on my outer third. This is a much more Earthy-toned dark brown. When I do this, I tend to focus the darker colour just in the crease and keep it really defined and sharp compared to The Mail, and don’t mind how messily I apply it on my lid because I’m only going to blend the colours together, anyway. I think I used the wrong brush for this (I just used what was already in my hand) so if I was to recreate this for a party or something, I would use a small, flat-headed brush. I then went into my W7 Neon Nights Palette (available from Ebay) and took a small, flat-headed brush, the one I should’ve used previously, and took the metallic pink colour I have been raving about for ages! I applied this on the rest of my lid and all the way down into my inner corner. I hadn’t dragged a colour this far down before so I was kind of nervous to do so but I really liked how it looked! With this look I would of course apply some black eyeliner then a subtle-ish inner corner/brow bone highlight otherwise you could look like a mythical creature.
And that’s literally it! I hope you have enjoyed this blog post – I need to write more EOTD’s because I’ve forgotten how much I love them! Let me know what you think of this look and whether you would try it out for yourself! I hope I have completed my mission! And don’t forget to let me know what you would like to see more of!
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you Tuesday,
