I am officially on my “staycation” now and what is one of the first things I go and do? Play with makeup. I don’t know whether to be a little embarrassed or proud of what I’ve been up to. In my defence, I did clean the apartment first!
As some of you know, I hauled some great makeup from Pandora’s Makeup Box last week and picked up a shimmery, cool blue eye shadow called Aquamarine. I didn’t think I would feel comfortable wearing this EOTD during the day, but I ran all of my errands in it!
Aquamarine was easy to work with, allowing me to slowly build up to the level of shimmer I wanted as well as easily blendable. For the outer corner of my eyes I used a darker shade of blue from my Stila DayDream Palette which I can’t find the name for and blended inwards with my fluffy brush in the infamous “window-wiper” motion. As much as I love eye shadows and makeup, I’m such a novice when it comes to technique. I’m always so scared that I’ll go overboard and ruin the whole look! Especially with eye liner! The YouTubers make it all look so effortless!
