Business on the Top, Party on the Bottom

Don’t panic, this blog is in no way a how-to on how to achieve the perfect mullet. Thankfully, our eyes will be saved from ever seeing that again unless of course you accidentally stumble into a biker’s bar of some sort. Instead, I’m replicating a look from Maybelline’s mascara ad in the March 2012 Issue of People: Style Watch (page149). The look features a subtle, soft use of bronzes and golds on the lid, while a pop of lime green runs underneath the eye. This is such an interesting twist and a perfect solution for those who may not be ready for a full, pop-of-color eye.
I use the Faces Beautiful Mineral Makeup Signature Shadow Quad in Nouveau for my eye shadow. I don’t use the shade of green for this look but it’s a great color to have in my makeup bag. I use the darkest shade of brown only in the crease of my eye so it doesn’t become to overwhelming and heavy. I use the orangy, bronze color on my lid and highlight with the lightest shade of tan. Don’t forget that if you always like to prime your eyes first, you can just swipe on my favorite Faces Beautiful Brush-On Liquid Mineral Makeup  and it serves the same purpose!
Now for the fun part, I like using the bright shades from Giselle’s 8 Stack Contradiction Shadows in the brilliant green. Using a narrow brush and dampening the tip for the best color payoff, dip the brush in the shadow and tap out any fallout. Swipe the pigment from the inner corner of your eye to the outer in a thin line staying close to your waterline. This look especially looks fierce with winged out eye liner but still, keep the pop of color under your eye within the span of your eye. Finish off with mascara and your ready to turn some heads!
