Remember ages ago when I got a few pots of Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows? Well, I never really posted any tutorials on them because I was using them as monochromatic color washes for a quick fix before heading off to work, school, etc. There was really nothing for me to demonstrate...just swipe on color with finger and go, you know what I mean? Well, a couple days ago I decided to "go crazy" and use two colors at once. Lol. Just thought I'd show you guys what I came up with:
Nothing spectacular. I just used Tenacious Teal and Bad To The Bronze to create a dual-tone look. It's almost as easy as just using a monochromatic wash...but that doesn't really make sense because here we have two colors instead of one, so forget that I said that. It's still easy though.
I'm going to start by applying Tenacious Teal halfway up my top lid and along my bottom lid:
Please excuse the inconsistency in color. My camera's auto-white balance was going crazy with my lighting. But you get the idea, right?
Next, using Bad To The Bronze, I'm going to trace around the Tenacious Teal:
You can stop here and add eyeliner if you like, I'm just going to take it one step further which is completely optional.
For added depth, I'm going to use a contour brush to add a bit of dark brown eyeshadow to my crease:
Now I'll just line my eyes as usual:
Curl lashes, apply mascara, and I'm ready to go:
There you go! Easy-peasy. :D I thought I was fine with a monochromatic color wash, but the dual tone really adds an extra dimension of depth to the eyes. I find that the bronze and teal are very complimentary: the teal gives you a pop of color while the bronze brings the whole look down-to-earth, which I think is a fine balance. Hope you guys enjoyed the the tutorial! I've worn my eyes this way twice in a row already, love it!
