Fresh Lavender

Salut mes belles :)

Since so many of you have told me that you looove makeup tutorials and looks, today's post will be a quickie of one of my favorite go-to everyday makeup looks featuring another cat eye in a wash of metallic lavender eyeshadow. Try it, hope you like it!

To see the step by step cat eye liner how-to, check out my post The Purrfect Cat Eye (it's a popular one :) and you'll be an expert in no time!

The pictures don't do justice to the true pigmentation and sparkle of this Bare Minerals eye shadow in Metallic Lavender... but trust you me, these mineral shadows are potent! You only need a little bit of this product to achieve maximum results! Thanks bestie for this awesome prezzie oxox :)) I loves 'it!

Start off with a primer and add a bit of a sticky base to the lid to act as an adhesive for the sparkly shadow. I like to use NYX jumbo eye pencils for this purpose.

  1. With a stiff flat brush, pack on the eyeshadow all over the lid
  2. Using a dome brush, blend out the edges. You can use an eyeshadow that is a couple shades darker than your skin
  3. Finish the eye look by lining the top lash line and coat the lashes with mascara.
Check out the products and the rest of the pix :)

The one and only Clinique cream liner in True Black and an angled teklon brush from Crownbrush.com for precise application

Bare Minerals eyeshadow and swatch in metallic lavender and a Sonia Kashuk small application brush. I find that this type of loose pigment shadow is sometimes easier to apply with your finger by just dotting it on. I do this occasionally when I'm in a hurry... Hey, whatever works!

Love this shadow! So fresh :))
