How’s that for alliteration?
And now, on to the article… I have been wearing lots of color in my eye shadows lately. It seems my winter clothing is mostly subdued, so I get a tad bolder in my eye looks. Today, I’ll share a very simple purple eye shadow look using Purely Cosmetics’ cream to powder eyeshadows.
For this look, I started with the Pink cream shadow. I used a taklon brush and applied the pink across my entire upper eyelid. Then lightly blended it into and slightly above my crease. Purely Cosmetics’ Pink cream shadow has slight flecks of gold. It’s not too visible once applied, but it makes the shadow ‘bounce’ light around.
Next I used Plum cream-to-powder shadow (a gorgeous deep plum with self-colored glimmer). Plum is one of my absolute favorite shadow colors from Purely Cosmetics. I wear this color alone, with greens, as a liner, etc. It’s very versatile. But for this look, I applied Plum (again with a taklon brush) to my outer half of my eyelid. And then used the same brush to smudge the Plum under my lower lash line.
I kept my look very light. When we went out later that night with friends, I just popped another layer of Plum on top, and added some eyeliner on my upper lashline. These cream-to-powder shadows are extremely buildable- making it easy to get a subtle look or a very dramatic eye-catching creation!
You know how everyone raves about MAC paint pots? This is the better, hand-made version. Seriously- every makeup fan needs these eyeshadows in her collection. The duo’s are easy to pack along in your purse (so you can easily make the aforementioned day-to-night change). There’s no mess or spilled powder, no wandering/flaking, just pure color!
Pick up the cream-to-powder eyeshadows at Purely Cosmetics in duos ($15.95) or 10 count palettes ($39.99). Each color is HAND-CRAFTED so they are basically all limited editions. Definitely a Bionic Buy!
(**Bionic’s Note: My cream-to-powder shadows in the photograph above were pre-release samples. They come in nice compacts when you purchase.)
