Moody Wintery Shadow!!

Burgundy madness, wine shadow won’t look out of place with a moody wintery outfit.

Now, it’s your turn to wear the trend, so why Burgundy? it has a purplish undertone that can make the whites of your eyes appear whiter, other than that it flattering on every skin tone, you don’t have to avoid the color based on your skin tone like most colors. You like it, you apply it.  All you have to do is:

1- Apply the right shade: Here is a list of pallets that have different shades of burgundy for you to try out. MAC Burgundy Times Nine Palette, KYShadow Burgundy Palette, Becca Comsetics Ombre Rouge Eye Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. gigi hadid

2- Don’t over do it: if you are worried about how the color might come off, you can start with a little burgundy shade in the outer corner of your eye and blend it with your eyeliner.

3- Dare to smoke it: the burgundy eyeshadow can act like a Smokey eye effect only with a different shade, you can smoke it out and control the intensity of the shadow depending on the look you are going for.

4- Mascara or Lashes: the don’t of the burgundy eyeshadow look, never leave without applying false lashes or lots and lots of mascara to frame your eyes.

5- Keep it Simple: Try to keep everything else simple, avoid applying any reddish tones, such as blush. Switch up the blush with some highlighter and tone it down with the contouring.

The Power of Blue

bella blue “I think fashion trends are moving away from minimalism,” celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose tells (Refinery29). “You see bolder colors, prints and embellished items… so, in turn, you see fun, colorful, and decorative makeup like blue shadow really coming back in a big way.”

We saw blue eyeshadow rocking the runway but little did we know that it would actually turn into a trend that almost everyone is willing to try it. Pastel and metallic eyeshadows are more accepted and used for all skin tones, now its a royal darkish blue that’s waving the eye makeup look. So does it work on absolutely everyone? YES and here’s how.

From my perspective I actually believe that the cobalt blue eyeshadow has nothing to do with skin tone, it’s just a matter of self confidence whether you want to get noticed wearing it or not and be completely shy about it. However some of the shades suit one skin tone more than the other.

maquillaje-3a-a1- It’s way easier to apply – Rule #1 try not to make it look so perfect, the whole point of it is just applying it on the eye making it look disconnected and undone.

2- Tone it down – since you are going bold on the eyes tone it down with the lipstick, mascara, eyeliner and false lashes (Ishimmer : La Belle Lashes, Vamp Lashes and Cluster Lashes). Multiple celebrity makeup artists suggest to go for a dewy skin look rather than the matte look, just to keep the skin looking fresh and vibrant.

3- Smoke it – you can use two shades of blue for a smoky eye effect, only this time it’s blue, for an eye opening look you can add a shimmered eyeshadow towards the inner corners of the eyes.

4- If you want to take this trend one step at a time you can start with a blue wing eyeliner that’s on the upper lid, or a blue eyeshadow that’s traced along the lower lash line. shay-mitchellAccording to Elle Magazine, darker skin tones tend to look better with aquamarine/ teal shades of blue, when lighter skin tones tend to look better with cobalt, royal and darker shades of blue. But really just like I said, I think you can flaunt any shade of blue no matter the skin tone, it’s a statement look just depends if you’re up for it or not.
