In honor of the beautiful spring!! weather we have been having, I decided to do something a little lighter but with tons of sparkle. Unfortunately, the sparkle isn’t all that noticable in the pictures but you get the idea.
I also decided this would be a great opportunity to try out the Loreal HIP paints as a base for my eyeshadows. I was a little concerned that the paints might cause my eyes to be sensative, or have some irritation, but I was pleasantly suprised! Not only did they dry in a snap, my eyeshadow lasts hours and hours beyond what it would normally with just foiling or normal application. I would highly recommend drying this technique to acquire some lasting power in your shadows. There are quite a few colors to choose from, but I chose the most neutral and closest to my complexion, which was “Secretive”. It is a light beige with a hint of shimmer.
For the look below:
Loreal HIP “Secretive” – all over lid as base
The Cosmetic Princess “Silver Sage” – lid
Taylor Made Minerals “Chitzy” – foiled over Silver Sage on lid
Mac Royal Assets “Metallic Pallet” – crease
Milani Wet/Dry Eyeshadow “Lilly White” – hilight
Rimmel Eye Magnifier Mascara “Black”
