Sun. Sky. Sand. Waves. Beach!


Bonjour mes amis! Beach season is here and I'm feeling inspired by all the summery elements of my favorite past time: Beach Bummin'! My eye of the day isn't something that I'd actually wear to the beach (I much prefer no makeup and lots of SPF), but it is an artistic embodiment of all the goodies one can find there: the luminous sun, the warm sand, the refreshing waves, and the clear blue sky. In fact, this bright fun look can be worn to a beach bonfire party and/or would be perfect for any other summer night out!



Read along to find out how it's done!



Sorry for the single photo, my camera was not cooperating (happens to everyone) and this is the best shot I could find in the sea of unfocused and overblown images. womp womp :/

PRODUCTS USED:



HOW-TO: Sparkly, Sunny, Beachy Eyes
  1. Prime your eyes and allow the primer to dry.
  2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush and patting motions, apply the shimmery yellow (Goldfish) all over the center of your lid.
  3. With the same brush, apply a shimmery gold shadow (Eye Bronzer) to the inner and outer lid using the same technique.
  4. With a fluffy dome shaped brush and windshield wiper motions, apply a neutral matte shadow (Naked) to your crease, right above the gold and shimmery yellow blending out the edges.
  5. Deepen your crease with a slightly darker matte shadow (Buck) using the same technique and brush.
  6. Line the waterline using a white pencil liner (Ben Nye) and pat on a bright blue shadow (Parasol) directly on top, using a small dense brush. P. S. I got this cool tip from my girl Meredith Jessica :)) Check out her gorgeous sunset eye look here.
  7. Line the top lash line extending the wing using a black liquid liner (Revlon Shimmer Black) and sharpen the outer lower lash line with a brown pencil liner. Smudge out the lower lash line with your pinky.
  8. Highlight the inner lower lash line with a gold glitter liner (NYX Gold) and apply your lashes to complete the look.

One of my favorite beaches: Luquillo Beach, Puerto Rico

  4. I sometimes dare and use yellow eyeshadow but I don't always make it work. I think the blue balances out the brightness of the yellow and pull the whole look together, love it! ^^ xx ♥

    1. Thanks Janine!! You know, I was having such a hard time taking pix for this post... so much so that the face shot was actually taken with my iphone (and I usually don't like to choose "flattering" over quality)... you're right, it all depends on the lighting, time of day, etc. It's a learning experience hehe
