Summer wishes…


Well, if Wiarton Willie, Canada’s leading groundhog, was right, we will be seeing an early spring.  And thank goodness because I am so over winter right now.

I have been feeling like wearing bright blues and yellows — colours I usually sport during the warmer months. So in anticipation of spring and summer ahead, I thought I would just bite the bullet and wear these bright shades to warm up my day (plus the weather has been kind of nice, well, better than -40 degrees C).

Here’s how to create the look.


1. With a yellow base, such as Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 24 Yellow, apply this all over your lid area.

2. With a brown eyeshadow and a fluffy brush, apply this in the crease area.  I used the two colours from the NARS Cordura eyeshadow palette, applied with a Inglot 6SS brush.

3. Moving onto the lid, apply a moss green colour with a flat eyeshadow brush.  I used Too Faced Honeymoon from the Sweet Indulgences palette.

4. With a gold colour, apply this all over your lids with a fluffy crease brush.  I used Half Baked from the Urban Decay Naked palette.

5. Going back to your crease, apply a dark brown eyeshadow with a pencil brush in the crease.  I used Darkhorse from the Urban Decay Naked palette.  With a fluffy crease brush, blend it all together.

6. To highlight, apply a champagne colour in the inner corner of your eyes.  I used MAC Naked Lunch.

7. For eyeliner, first line your tightline with a black pencil liner, then line your upper lash line with a gel liner and slightly wing it out.  I used Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in black and then Buxom Lash Liner in Sequins.  After, apply mascara, and if you want, falsies.  I didn’t use false lashes, just mascara.  I applied Lancome Hypnose Star with Rimmel London Volume Flash ScandalEyes mascara over top to amp up the volume.

8. Moving onto the lower lash line, with a pencil brush, apply a primer first, then a shimmery golden-brown.  I used Smog from the Urban Decay Naked palette.

9.  This part is optional, but if you want to spice up the look and make it more fun, apply a blue liner over smog.  I used Lancome Kohl Liner in Jade Crush. To finish up the look, apply mascara to your lower lashes.

And that’s it!  I hope this look brings some warmth to your life.  I’ll be rocking it again in a couple months.
