While last summer’s hot makeup trends focused on pastel eye shadow; 2012 spring eye makeup is focused on pastel eye liners instead. Just a hint of color swept over black liner makes for a playful summer look without going over board.
To create a summer version of winter’s dramatic winged liner & smokey eye, use playful shimmering colors to compliment your black liner. Instead of black and grey eye shadow, go for coppery, bronze, or champagne shadow that will add some depth to your eyes without looking dark and heavy.
There are many ways you can make your eyes stand out without heavy amounts of eye shadow. Try using a black liquid liner close to the lash line, and then sweep a bright vibrant color on as a double-liner. Just make sure to let the liquid liner dry for a few minutes before applying a second color. To re-create the look below, use Mark Cosmetics Get In Line Waterproof Liner, and Mattify Cosmetics Day Dreamer Blue Eye Shadow to form the blue stripe. Keep the rest of your eye lid bare, or use a barely-there taupe or shimmery white.
For soft, romantic, daytime look – use a pink shimmery shadow with dark liner. If you want to call attention to your eyes without spending hours painting your lids, this is the perfect pairing! Use either the Kat Von D or Mark Liquid Liner to line your upper and lower lids. If you have trouble getting liner to stay put on your water line, try using Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Liner Pencil. It lasts all day long, even on the water line. Then, brush on a sparkly pale pink eye shadow – as if you are creating a smoky eye, but with a much lighter color. A great one to use is the Mattify Cosmetic’s Cotton Candy Long Lasting Eye Makeup.
To create a dramatic yet colorful summer look, go for the green! First, line the top and bottom of eyes in black. Then, place dark green shadow close to the black liner on upper and lower lids. Using a liner brush, sweep a lighter shade of green around the edges of the dark green liner. Dust a light golden shadow as a highlighter on inner corners and underneath lower lash line. To achieve this look, you can use the Kat Von D Tatoo Liner, Too Faced Eye Shadow Duo in Lucky Charms and Mattify Cosmetic’s Fields of Gold Eye Shadow.
