The Blush Vixen is here, for an eye makeup look! Here’s her artcicle :
I have this thing for eye colors lately. Not to worry, the Blush Vixen will never, ever lose her passion for blush! Iâ€™m just exploring what other goodies MMU has to offer.
Tired of my usual look, I took a deep breath and ventured into new territory: applying eye colors. Itâ€™s about time I use the Monave multipurpose minerals (MPMâ€™s) that have been lying around and collecting dust in my makeup stash. So one day, I decided to take on a neutral look. It was quite an ordinary day so wearing heavy makeup is a no-no. Hereâ€™s a preview of the neutral look:
After putting on the basics and some eye shadow primer on my lids, I used the following MPMâ€™s from Monave:
- semi-matte beige on the whole lid
- champagne on middle to outer lid
- gold salmon on the crease and â€œouter Vâ€
- light gold to highlight inner lid and brow bone
- copper as liner (mixed with sealant)
The whole process was a breeze. Colors glided on smoothly and effortlessly, partly also because of the primer I used. Monave MPMâ€™s go on sheer, you may want to try the foiling method or apply them wet to achieve more dramatic, intense colors. Since it was daytime, I applied them as is with the use of different eye brushes. Or if youâ€™re not that familiar with foiling, you can layer them instead until you get the exact depth or intensity you want.
Hereâ€™s a closer look at my EOTD (eye of the day):
I honestly find it easier to work with loose pigments than those found pressed or are in compacts. The only drawback would be exercising a lot of control to prevent spillage.
Overall, it was a lot of fun! Again, I dare you to go experiment on colors. If youâ€™re having second thoughts on what goes well with this and that, you may do swatches on the inner part of your forearm. That way, you have a preview of how they will show up on your skin.
Neutral eye colors are the way to go for ordinary days or on days that you want to look prim and proper, without going too bold or dramatic. Now show â€˜em those peepers!
