Today in this edition of StyleWise, I'm showing off my go-to makeup look for Summer. As you may know, lately I have been loving pops of PINK on my cheeks and lips- and I thought it might be fun to cool down my eye looks with shades of GREEN. Not only is it a departure from my normal eye makeup colors, but it is a great way to make the green of my iris brighter.
Almay sent me a few shadow palettes from their intense i-color line that features trios designed specifically for your eye color. My palettes for green eyes have colors that are all in the camouflage/army green family- which I do not usually opt for, so I was a little surprised with the selection. But, sometimes the unknown is exactly what you need to get out of a rut! And turns out I really love the green eyes/ green lids combo.
While the title says 'intense', I was not overly thrilled with the pigment on these shadows... until I added water! Sometimes shadows just need a little boost, so don't give up on them until you've tried using them wet. I simply run my shadow brush under the tap for a few seconds, then dip into the shadow as usual to create a creamy texture that's full of color. Using the palette as designed, you'll place the three colors across your lid for a beautifully color coordinated look. I wouldn't say you have to use the palette that is specific to your color- after all makeup shouldn't have hard and fast rules. But, if you're looking for a budget friendly option that's been expertly selected, these Almay shadows are a good choice! And maybe you'll be like me and get a push in a new direction if the colors for your eyes are outside your box. I think I'll pick up the purple trio next.
