Last Friday I shared part 1 of my collaboration with the amazing Lauren Cosenza of DIVAlicious where I created a remix of different looks using one pair of white shorts. If you missed it, click here. In that post I admitted being completely intimidated by colored liners, but thankfully Lauren came to the rescue and created two amazing looks that I loved and can’t stop wearing. Below is the step by step on achieving each look. I predict you’ll be inspired to whip out the colored liners!
I dusted the champagne share from the Lancome Color Design eyeshadow palette in Aquatic Essence over Nash’s lids from lash to crease, then ran my beloved Wet N Wild MegaLiner Liquid Liner in Turquoise along her lashline, lifting up at the corners for a cool retro cat-eye. (Might I add this liner is just $3!?!)
Lashes were coated with Lancome’s Hypnose Mascara and lips are Maybelline Color Whisper in Coral Ambition. I swirled cream blush (MAC Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle) from the apples of Nash’s cheeks up towards her temples (right above the cheekbone contour) for added dimension and a pop of color.The Day Look
To show the versatility of these often-intimidating shades, I took our day face into night by building as you would if you were running from your office to a night on the town.
As you’ll see, in three simple steps (seriously, just three!), she is transformed.
For the night look:
I first blanked out the lips with concealer so we could go bolder on the eye.
Using our same Lancôme Color Design palette, I added the seafoam (from the inner corner to the center of the lid) and the aqua (from the outer corner to the center of the lid) and blended (at the place where they met) over what was already there. I also swept the aqua below the lower lashline from the outer corner inward to define and enhance the shape of Nash’s eyes.
I completed the night look with Maybelline Color Whisper in Go Nude on lips.
