Ok let me start off by saying that these pictures turned out so good that I was pretty surprised with myself AND my camera. Because my lens is made for portraits it can take a while for me to focus and get a good shot doing it by myself. But I digress. You're not here for my lame photography skills...you want to know about the makeup right?!
Well I was inspired by summer (again) and I wanted to channel my inner bronzed Goddess. But with a pop of color! Because color is FUN! Don't be afraid to use some color ladies (and gents).
You don't have to go all out and put bright colors all over your eyes, but you can choose a spot on the eyes, like the inner corner, bottom lashes or even your eyeliner the same way I did it here!
Not to mention blue will make your brown eyes POP!
This look is actually pretty simple. I used a light green shade on my eyes with a little brown on the crease with liquid liner and lashes and played with my water line and bottom lashes.
I used a blue eye liner on my water line (similar here) line and then added some eye shadow on top of the eye liner as well as under my bottom lashes. I used "Fringe" from the electric palette but you can find a more affordable option here.
Oh and for my cheeks I'm wearing one of MAC's new blush colors in "Swiss Chocolate". It gives the perfect amount of warmth to the face but if you'd like you can also use it as a contour color.
I was in love with this look. AND my hair (ok ok I was feeling myself...don't judge me) If you'd like I can have a have a post for it, because I've been having fun this summer looking for some low manipulation option for my natural hair.
