I’m excited to see that Maybelline has released six new neutral shades of their Color Tattoo Eyeshadows for Spring 2014. Here’s a look using the 3 warmer shades in the collection: Sleek & Spice, Beige-ing Beauty, and Caramel Cool.
Products used and how I created this look:
- Maybelline Sleek & Spice Color Tattoo Eyeshadow – Using a small flat synthetic brush (like a concealer brush), I applied Sleek & Spice to the inner and outer lid and blended it through the crease. I kept most of the color concentrated on the outer lid and crease.
- Maybelline Beige-ing Beauty Color Tattoo Eyeshadow – Using the same type of brush, I applied Beige-ing Beauty to the center of my top lid and pulled the color slightly up into the crease.
- Maybelline Caramel Cool Color Tattoo Eyeshadow – Using a pencil brush, I applied Caramel Cool to the bottom lash line.
- Lorac Front of the Line Pro Liquid Liner in Black – I applied a very thin line, especially on the inner and center parts of the lid. The outer part of the lid has a slightly thicker, though still quite thin line. The winged part is kept fairly short and is pulled horizontally away from the outer corner of the eye, rather than up and out.
- Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara in Very Black – I applied 2 coats of this on my upper lashes and 1 coat on my lower lashes.
- It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer in Neutral Medium – Using my ring finger I patted a small amount of this concealer over my dark circles to help brighten up my eyes.
- It Cosmetics YBBB Your Brows But Better – I applied this only very lightly to help fill in any gaps in my eyebrows. Using the spoolie end of this product, I combed through my brows to soften any harsh lines.
- When applying these cream shadows, using a brush will give you more opaque color payoff and using your fingers will give a more blended, sheer look.
- Use synthetic brushes with these to make cleaning the product off your brushes easier.
- These aren’t the easiest eyeshadows to blend. Using your fingers to blend is easiest but you can use a brush too if you want more precision. To use a brush, apply the shadow where you want it so that the brush is only left with a tiny bit on it. Wait for about a minute to allow the small amount of product is left on your brush to dry down a bit and then go ahead and blend where you need to. This makes the product behave more like a powder eyeshadow.
