After taking a break from blogging for a few days, I decided to continue with my series of eye shadow looks from the Stila eye shadow palette and lookbook In the Moment. Also, I will be a guest at a friend’s wedding in a few days, so I thought I could experiment a bit and choose a look for the event. The first look I tried is called Purple Dream.
Using eyeshadows from the Stila eye shadow palette, follow these directions:
- Apply Instinct from lash line to brow
- Apply Impulse to lid
- Apply Glance along the crease and blend
- Wet brush and apply glance to the lower lash line.
The pictures above illustrate the final product. I did make one change; I added the eye liner in tetra to the upper lash line. Since I’m going to do an evening look for the wedding, I thought adding the eye liner would give my eyes more shape and help make them look larger. Overall, I was happy with how the look came out. It’s very purple, which is my favorite color, and it has a smokey eye look, without being over-the-top. However, I haven’t decided yet if it’s the winning look for my event.
The last picture is a little different, since I decided to experiment by adding Improvise –which is very a propos since I was, in fact, improvising- pun intended. Without realizing it, by adding this new color I created my own version of Look 4 Midnight Magic. It made the look darker, which might be better for evening, but I didn’t see a major difference between the two.
Stay tuned for Part 3 of the Stila eye shadow looks and to find out which look I chose…
