Pastel & Neon Eyes
Sometimes it’s good to mix things up a bit and step outside of the norm. My everyday eye-makeup look tends to be pretty natural and subdued: bronze and pinks shadows with black liner. (Don’t worry, I tend to wear very LOUD lipstick to contrast. Flow from Progressive and I would get along well.) So today instead of neutrals, I am busting out the pastel and neon eyes for fun. And–based off of my Instagram photo today, many of you would wear these shades too! Great minds think a-like…or just like the same shadow colors I guess.
These two bad boys from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics are my two picks for my pastel and neon eye look. Cava Blue is on the left and this pastel, shimmery green shade is no longer available. I have had them in my makeup kit for a few years and have only used them a handful of times. That’s pretty pathetic, these are beyond lovely.
On my eyes I have the pastel/mint green shade on my entire lower lid. To line my eyes, I dipped a wet eyeliner brush into the Cava Blue and then lines my upper and lower lash line. I finished the look by curling my lashes and applying two coats of mascara. I then pressed the Makeup Forever, Aqua Cream blush onto my cheeks and lips.
Do you like to wear Neon or Pastel colors on your lids?
