AMW Version: "A Wash of Colors"

I don't have time to do my make-up every morning!
I am always on a rush but I want to try some colorful eye make-up to brighten up my day!
Summer is color!  I want to put some colors on my face for a "different look"

Those are some of the phrases you'll hear from most woman!  Well, you hear it from me!  There are some days "no make-up" look is not your thing and you want to go for a change!  Today is the day! 

"A Wash of Colors"
I call this a wash of colors as it's not too bright that everyone will stare at you on streets, its just playful and right!  Oh, it's your choice to use an eyelid primer, I did not use any as I don't oil up as much and again, I want to create a wash of colors!  Nothing too vibrant!

AMW Diagram

I used Shimmer Cubes Palette from The Body Shop for my eye make-up.

Step 1:
Apply this shimmery pink shadow all over lid for a nice wash of pink that sparkles a bit.

Step 2:
Gently brush on Sparkling Sky shade on the outer lid area going inwards.  Add more if you want the color to show!  I am using a tiny blending brush to keep on blending.
Use an pencil brush and also apply the same shade on the lower lash line.

Step 3:
Using a tinier brush, apply the same shade as Step 1 on the inner crease as the blending on Step 2 lighten up the shade. 

Step 4:
Using Revlon Perle Eye Shadow in Sunlit Sparkle, apply the inner corner of the eye including the inner waterline to create bigger, brighter eyes!

Step 5:
Line your eyes with any liner of your choice.  In this tutorial, I am using Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner in BL603.

Step 6:
Apply Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in 021 Denim Blue on the waterline. 

Fill in your brows with your favorite brow pencil or brow powder.  Curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara.

This is my final look

Here are the products I used for the rest of my face
Please don't get tired of it!  *laughs*

For the Cheeks:

Just fix your hair and head off for a brighter day!  Do not forget to do good deeds to others and smile!  Seriously, it's the best and priceless way to stay young!

Have a gorgeous week ahead!
Keep smilin'

  7. the huse are so subtle and pretty! perfect sa outfit and earring mo Nikki! :)

    [you would've loved the top all the more in person Nikki. i think you like classic pieces and that scalloped top would look real pretty on you! onga e, sana ginagawa nilang mas affordable sa sariling kababayan yung produkto. by the time they export, dun nalang nila taasan ng super. i also feel that the hiked up tags are partly due to their pricey endorser. I don't recall pricey tags at Bayo when Lea Salonga was still its endorser]

  8. I love that it's colorful yet very subtle...nice one!
