Day 18 : January 18
Buy yourself a new eyeshadow.
We spoke about eyeliners before for defining the eyes, but today we’re going to talk about brightening up and highlighting the eyes. You’re going to do this with a simple swipe of eyeshadow. You probably already have plenty of shadows ranging the colours of a rainbow, but the shadow I want you to pick up will be a neutral shimmer.
Look for something across the lines of soft champagne, rose gold, soft gold, or bronze. Shades that fall within this category can be swept across the lids and instantly lift and brighten the eye area within nothing more than perhaps mascara.
It’s a great way to get ready quick with minimal makeup! And don’t worry, the right neutral shimmer can always be incorporated into your full colour looks from winged liner to smokey eyes!
Now, off you go!
TIP : For easy on the go, try cream eyeshadow sticks. I particularly love Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown!
HOMEWORK : Buy yourself just one, but it doesn’t hurt to take note of other shades that don’t make the cut. You can always pick them up later!
