I’m not really the type to wear something like this, but I did promise a look with Sea Storm and Steam… so I hope you like it! It’s just three swipes of colour, really; nothing too complicated – which makes it an easy choice for a quick, super-summery eye.
I think this would look best on a darker skintone (to really make the colours pop), but if it’s your style, I say “go for it!” anyways. I mean, you only live once, right? Personally, though, I do think it makes me look a little jaundiced :P
Bases: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (all over the lid), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Lust (thickly along the lashline)
Colour: FaceFront Artistic Pigments in Amarela (yellow), Sea Storm (seafoam blue/teal), and Steam (melon/orange)
Basics: MAC Matte2 Eye Shadow in Blanc Type, theBalm timeBalm Concealer in Lighter Than Light, L’Oreal HiP Creme Eyeliner in Black (upper lashline)
Lashes: 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Ultra Lengthening Mascara in Black Tea
I know that a lot of you are anti-loose-pigments (totally understandable; I’m a klutz, too!) so here are a handful of alternative products to try. These are not dupes and are based only on colour family, so please don’t go expecting that they’ll be identical!
- Instead of Amarela, try MAC Chrome Yellow or Make Up For Ever Yellow 2
- Instead of Sea Storm, try MUFE Pearly Turquoise Blue 150, Urban Decay Flipside, or Annabelle Blue Hue
- Instead of Steam, try MAC Samoa Silk, MUFE Rust Orange 36, or MUFE Peach Apricot 69.
