I'm just going to start this post off by saying that if you are a beauty who LOVES bright eyeshadow or if you LOVE for your eyeshadow to POP...please find your nearest NYX retailer and grab the Jumbo Eyeshadow pencil in Milk. Like...now. This white creamy pencil used as a base to your eyeshadows will make you a very happy girl. I wouldn't lie to ya!
I just recently added this to my makeup stash and I finally decided to test it out by doing a bright eye-look. I love bright shadows and I marvel at them on other people...but oddly enough I don't do them very often on myself. This is probably for a few reasons including the fact that I barely wear makeup to work and wouldn't do bright shadow there anyway and on the weekend I'm not much better. LOL. But TODAY....TODAY we have a bright look and I actually dig this.
So it took me a WHILE to figure out what shadows to use for this bright eye. I finally settled on my NARS eyeshadow duo Rated R. I've had this for...a few years now. It was actually the very first NARS product I purchased (for some reason I was just drawn to the pretty cobalt blue and sparkly lime green), however, I have never (until now) used it. Shame! I have waaay too many things like this in my stash that I have yet to get around to using. Which probably means I shouldn't buy anything else right? Yeah.
So check out the NARS Rated R duo!
Here's the look I did using NYX Milk as a base (all over the lid and eye/brow area)...
Product Rundown (MAC unless otherwise stated):
-Monistat Chaffing Gel (face primer)
-Studio Sculpt Concealer NC50
-Studio Finish Concealer NW40
-Physicians Formula Translucent Powder
-Too Faced Shadow Insurance (primer)
-NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencil in Milk (base...dabbed all over eye area and blended w/finger)
-NARS Rated R eyeshadow duo
-Studio Sculpt Concealer NW40 (brow highlight)
-Feline kohl power (lower eyeliner)
-Stila Smudge Pot in black (upper lid liner)
-Cross-Cultural e/s (brow fill)
-Anastasia brow gel
-Covergirl Lashblast Length mascara (lower lashes only)
-L'Oreal Voluminous mascara (top lashes)
-NYX Powder Blush in Copper
-High Tea l/s
-Comet Blue Dazzleglass (LE)
The NYX Milk gets it POPPIN'....it will literally take your shadows to another level! Use it in moderation...I literally dabbed it over various areas of my eye and blended it out all over from there.
Grab one up! They will run you about $3 each over at Cherry Culture. ;) I also grabbed French Fries (a beatiful bronze color) and Purple jumbo eye pencil. I plan to use those soon in other looks!
What do you think? Do you use Milk as a base?
Have a FAB weekend, beauties! I'm hitting the Jay-Z concert tonight! Whoo Hoo! Ciao!
