My twin sister is getting married this August, and naturally I’m doing her makeup. So today we decided to have trial run with the eyes.. We settled on a soft smoke with black liner. It looks stunning in the flesh.
I decided to go for an almond shape with the eyeshadow as it complements my sisters natural eye shape.
Here is a behind the scenes photo of a makeup look I created on model Kate Errington!
I used a variety of vibrant eyeshadow colours from brands such as Sugar Pill, Grimas, No.7 & MAC! It was all about contrasting colours but in a complimentary way. By that I mean using colours such as Yellow against Purple. They contrast due to their colour differences, but are complimentary on the colour wheel. By using colours that are so different, you can create some real eye-catching results, and that’s why I chose to use an electric Blue liquid liner across the eyelid. This liner is by No.7, I do love it but it does stain the skin, so be warned!
My sister uses ‘Crave’ from the Urban Decay Basics palette to line her top lid. This give a soft but dark line making the lashes appear fuller at the base.
And when she wants it to be stronger in colour, she dampens her angled brush before dipping onto the shadow.
A little tip for those of you who use this palette!
I love a bit of leopard print! I’m not one for wearing it clothing-wise, but I am definitely a fan of creating it to wear on the face!
