Tipping Thursday: Fun with Color

Ever get stuck in a make-up rut?  Where you do the same thing, the same look with the same colors, every day?
Well, it's time to break out of that rut!  And it's easy to do.  Just add some color!

I'm going to show you how to take a simple, everyday look up a notch.  I took my usual grey eyeshadow and added a pop of color!

Start by applying grey shadow to your entire lid and extending up just passed the crease.

Like so (sorry it's blurry-I had hard time getting in close enough.)

Now comes the yellow.  Yep, that's right-yellow!  I wear yellow eyeshadow!  This quad is by Revlon but I've had it a while and I'm pretty sire you can't find it in the stores anymore.  

Using an angled brush, apply the yellow shadow to the outer corner of your eye, like so.

Repeat on other eye.

Then line inner lashline with black eyeliner and finish off with a coat of mascara.

Other ways you can "change it up":
-Switch out your usual black or brown eye liner with a olive green or a plumy purple.
-Try a navy blue mascara instead of the same old black.
-Try a new color.  Who says you have to wear neutrals all the time?  Pink can be a "day look" shadow.
-Keep your eyes low-key and wear a bright lipstick-like a nice, bright red or pink!

And, most of all, have fun!
