Forget about dull, grey concrete city summer and (re)create your own tropical oasis. Natasha Denona Tropic Eyeshadow Palette is exactly that – a tropical oasis in form of eyeshadow palette. Contains several matt and several eclectic shiny shades. It is also a combination of warm and cold tones. I was particularly impressed with beautiful emerald green shade named Exotic, that looks fierce worn as a cat flick eyeliner.
Rose gold shade is everywhere yet it is so hard to find one that is just that – creamy goodness of rose and gold specks with punch of color. Glossier has recently launched the Lidstar Duo liquid shadows, and shade Cub is ideal for every day. Wear as an all over lid color, or just as an emphasis on the outer V part of the eye. You can always visually enlarge the eyes by applying the same shade to the outer edge of the upper and lower eyelids but be sure to blend downwards on the lower lid. Blend the edges so it looks like a rose gold shadow more than an eyeshadow.
Pastel shades have a great comeback this season. Ideal for monochrome looks, especially when you combine your mono look with nail polish shades. The pastel mono look looks slightly sterile, Scandinavian and very clean, and the easiest way to achieve it is by applying a creamy matte pastel shade over the entire eyelid jut up to the crease. Creamy shades look very good when their edges remain sharp and clearly visible, and if you work with eyeshadows, after applying a shade over the entire lid, blend the edges towards the outer parts of the eye. Check out Make Up For Ever Aqua XL color paint shades. Amazing pigment AND staying power.
Terracotta shades, those warm seductive shades that we think of when we lust for long summer days. Brown, golden with orange undertone…ah. Apply on the entire lid, melt the outer edges, apply black creamy eye pencil into upper and lower lashes, smudge it and smoke it out. Along with this look, wear a bronzer to complete sunny vacay look.
