What could be more perfect for a fall collection from a makeup company in Portland, Oregon than a collection called “Stormy Weather?” After all, Portland didn’t get its rainy reputation undeservedly. But after a summer of record-breaking temperatures, everyone can look forward to cooler temperatures and a bit of precipitation!
Our Summer Fling look, created with The Hamptons collection, is easy to apply, but because it uses the beautiful, ocean-blue Southampton eyeshadow, the look is more playful and bright than the more neutral Summer Romance look.
Our first 3 for $30 eyeshadow sets were such a big hit that we decided to go a little bit wild with the newer ones. So when we first asked Urmila to model our Vivid! for Brown Eyes eyeshadow set, she was agreeable. Then we told her the colors in the set. "Aegean??? I don't think I can wear blue eyeshadow," she said. Of course we told her she definitely could, and we would prove it. The results are here for the world to see!
We started out with Urmila's Satin Matte Foundation, Beige 4, and applied it with our #25 Foundation Brush. With the #3 Concealer Brush, we also brushed a bit of foundation onto her eyelids to give a nice neutral base. Then we added a bit of Satin Matte Blush in Melon to the apples of her cheeks with our #21 Buff Brush.
Since Urmila was a little "blue-shy," we wanted to keep her look simple and office (if your office isn't a cosmetics company) appropriate. We brushed Leone Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow over her entire eye area using the #37 Eye Blending Brush. Then with the number #36 Pointed Crease Brush, we added the slightest touch of Aegean Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow to Urmila's crease and blended it well. Then we mixed some Aegean with water and applied it as a thick liner with the #33 Angle Liner Brush, winging the outer corners up and out. To add definition to Urmila's lash line, we used Black Satin Matte Eyeliner, just smudged into the roots of her lashes. To finish the look, we slicked on some Organic Nourishing Lipbalm in Holly Berry.
If you are a bit more "blue-venturous," try using Aegean on your entire lid, either wet (for the very bold) or dry (for the more subdued). But we rest our case...see Urmila, you CAN wear blue shadow!
