Beauty Spy: Sultry Summer Eyes

Happy Wednesday! :)

I'm trying to squeeze out every last bit of Summer I can before I fully embrace Fall (haha!), so I just thought I'd share this with you guys:

Beauty Spy: Sultry Summer Eyes


When light, shimmery shades mix with sooty, dark ones, you create a smoky eye of an entirely different sort. 
A little less serious, softer, gentler and somehow -- especially when it's steamy out -- about as sexy as makeup gets.

For this look, I'm thinking of using this eye shadow trio from Almay:


They repackaged their eye shadow trios, and this is what this particular one looks like now:

almay-intense-i-color-satin-eye-kit

I know they're not the exact colors used in the look above, but I think it'll work. ;)

What do you guys think?

  2. I have been playing around with eyeshadows lately and have figured out that I HAVE to use more gold tones or I look like a clown. Haha. With my tan skin and blondish hair, whites and grays do NOT work for me. I stick to mauve's and golds, but sometimes I accent with green, so that color combo looks fun!
