Warm Browns with a Pop of Blue

This look is a fun way to add a pop of color into an otherwise neutral shadow combination. Vibrant blues always make the eyes look bright and rested, but it is a wearable enough color to try for work or school. The cool blue juxtaposed against the warm brown shadows create interest and spark, making it the perfect easy look for summer.

Special Event & Bridal Makeup

This makeup look is simple to re-create and is perfect for any special occasion or for a bride on her wedding day! It uses all neutral shades and has a delicate sculpting in the outer portion of the eye. This sculpting technique adds drama without being too dark or overwhelming, and can be done with any color combination. For the entire eye look, I used Stila's Eyes Are The Window 'Spirit' Palette. The shadows are super versatile and extremely easy to blend. The palette is also very compact, perfect if you are looking for something to travel with.

Purple and Gold Eyes

Deep purples look great on everybody, and they are one of the easiest colors to experiment with if you are looking to try something other than basic neutrals. I combined the purple tones with a bright pop of champagne-gold to keep the look from being too dark, and I only shaded the outer corners of the eyes to give them a large and cat-like effect. If bright colors aren't your thing, try this elongated shadow shape in tans and browns!

Magenta Lips and Simple Eyes

I put together a simple spring look that only takes minutes to do, but leaves you feeling fresh and colorful. The Illamasqua lipgloss is the one piece that I really recommend trying, it is super long lasting and the color changes depending on what lipstick you place it over!
