Crystal Blue (MAC Shimmermint and The Body Shop 42 Midnight Blue)
This is a super-simple, sparkly, colorful eye look that you can do in a few minutes with max impact.
You will need just 2 shadow shades and a mascara.
A sparkly mineral or baked shadow (I am using a limited edition shade called Shimmermint by MAC, but you can always try shades like L’oreal Innocent Turquoise or something like MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow in Bright Moon or the regular shadow in Aquadisiac for those with paler skin tones.)
If you want, use ANY color you want; pink, gold, lilac, green… Just match it to a corresponding dark shade (burgundy or win for pink, brown for gold, dark violet for lilac, etc).
Step 1: Because so many baked or high-sparkle shadows are low on pigmentation, you’ll need to wear them dampened for more intensity. All I do here is dampen my finger in clean water, dab it against the back of my hand so it’s not too wet, and then run it over the shadow.
You end up with something like an intense gel or cream shadow which you can simply smooth over your lids with your finger.
Step 2: With a flat brush (flat brushes pick up less pigment and allow you to control exactly where you place it), pack a dark navy blue into the outer corners of the lids and run it along the lower lash line as well. Blend it slightly into the pale shade.
Step 3: Curl lashes and apply black mascara to finish!
