NOTE FROM SASHA: Hello all, I have a guest post here for you today from Jennifer, also known as the beauty blogger Jennywren7. It’s an eyeshadow look using Bare Minerals products (mostly), enjoy!
So it’s no secret to anyone that I love Bare Minerals makeup. When Sasha tweeted if anyone wanted to write something for her blog, I thought that Bare Minerals would be the way to go. Bare Minerals have recently revamped their eye makeup range, and it honestly looks amazing!
One of the new products they’ve launched as part of this are the new 5 in 1 BB cream eye shadows. They are basically a matte version of the prime time collection, and retail at £17. I’ve only had mine for a few days and I love the feel of it; it’s so creamy and will last all day!
In tribute of the eye event, I thought I would show you my take on the ‘Green with Envy’ look. (PS- If you want help with some new looks, the Bare Minerals eye shadow cards are really easy and have some gorgeous looks!)
Anyway, enough of me ranting. On with the tutorial!
To do this, you will need:
- Benefit’s gimme brow mascara
- Clinique bottom lash mascara
- Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Soundtrack
- Bare Minerals 5 in 1 BB Cream Eye shadow in Delicate Moss
- Bare Minerals Lash Domination mascara
First of all I patted the Delicate boss cream eye shadow all over the lid and blended it into the crease with my fingers. You don’t need a lot to do this. One or two dabs of the wand on your lid is enough to cover the entire lid! Leave this to dry for a few seconds before applying the powders. I tend to fill in my brows with the brow mascara in this time.
Next, apply Speaker Box with a fluffy brush all over the lid and blend upwards over the crease. It may look like delicate moss has been lost, but it adds more definition to the lid whilst also acting like a lid primer.
Then pat Remix into the inner corner and around the tear duct and lower lid. Yes it looks a weird yellow in the palette but it looks a gorgeous bronzey-gold on the lid. If the line looks a bit harsh, blend a bit of Rhythm over the crease and the brow bone.
On the lid, blend these colours all together using Louder. Concentrate the colour more on the outer lid and crease.
Finally, mascara! A nice bold black looks amazing with these shadows. Lash Domination is an amazing mascara for standing out against darker shadows like these ones.
And that is the finished look. Thank you Sasha for allowing me to write on your blog.
