Makeup & Muses: Bright Shadows

8/23/2010

Hey muses! I went to a Fashion Industry Insiders event the other night and it was very informative. I met a lot of people like designers, models, stylists, publicists, and makeup artists. I would recommend that you all see if there is something like this in your area because it would be great for fashion networking.

Anyhoo, one of the makeup artists I met told me that I had great eyes and they would be great for color experimentation, i.e., bright eyeshadows. I don't really mess with bright shadows but that's because I don't know the first thing about bright makeup. But I hope you ladies are more adventurous than I am.
ARE YOU?

I think one day I will give it a try, but for now I'll just get inspired by these photos.

This is what the sky looked like outside my window.
And I think these eyeshadows are reminiscent of the sky:
Now I just have to figure out how to keep my bright eye makeup looking like the above photos and not like the one below. Seems like a fine line.

  1. lol @ the mimi picture. I tend to stay away from bright shadows and stick with a neutral palette but the blue and purple combo is very pretty. I may jump out of comfort zone one day.

  12. The inspiration photos are gorgeous ! I tend to use a lot of lilac and blue on my eyes, I was a bit afraid that it might be a little over the top at first, but it is just a matter of getting used to it and becoming confident about your make-up skills! :)
    And I will be definitely trying the blue and purple mix from the first picture!
