I recently decided to do, and post, eye looks even if I don’t do an entire face of makeup.
This gives me the opportunity to share looks, and have them for future reference for myself, without the commitment of doing a full face then removing all that makeup. Which, let’s face it, is what I feel most lazy to do.
This also makes me feel better about the amount of making I have because I’m actually using it instead of having it sit around waiting until I have an excuse to use it.
For this look I reached for the Colourpop Good For Hue collection. My goal is always to maximize the products used but you can definitely achieve beautiful looks by using only one quad/palette.
I used the Hot Chocolate and Cream Soda quads and for extra spice I used a shade, Token, from the Lucky Penny palette too.
Cream Soda is perfect for very subtle and shimmery looks, while Hot Chocolate makes for great smokey eye looks. I used both for something in between.
I started with Milkshake in the crease, added Token to slightly darken the crease and built up the depth with Choc Full and Ur Hot.
I could have stuck to the Hot Chocolate quad and used Fun Factory with a fluffy brush and light hand in place of Token.
For the lid I placed Half Sweet on the center of my lid, going over the out edge a little to blend it, and Malted in the inner corner portion, going over Half Sweet a little to blend the shades. I applied both using my fingers.
I quickly did my brows and went in with Soda Shop between my brow and crease.
