Makeup Mondays: Triple Play

Happy Monday Everyone! I wanted to start the week off with something spunky! By no means do I consider myself "savvy" when it comes to makeup, but like most girls I do love to play around and experiment with new looks! Although I don't wear foundations, I do love my shadows. I'd like to think that I have a keen eye for colors that compliment my skin tone, but I'll let you all be the judge of that :-)

I call this look "Triple Play", specifically because I used three different colors. Ask anyone who knows me, when it comes to eyeshadow I am a MAC FaNatic!!! I absolutely love the richness, overall quality and variety of colors they carry.

Here are the products I used to create the look...

Cover Girl Lash Exact Mascara

I really just got into wearing mascara a few months ago so I'm still trying to find the right one that will create the perfect fullness in my lashes. So far Cover Girl's Lash Exact is one of my faves. I love the fact that you only really need to apply one coat!

MAC "Amber Lights"

I receive a lot of compliments every time I rock it! This is my absolute favorite eye shadow in the world!!! I wear it almost every single day and I'm sure you can tell from the photo above, hence the little hole in the center LOL!  The color is like a peachy shimmery bronze and it adds so much life to my eyes.

MAC "Star Violet"

I've had this eye shadow for a while now, it was given to me as a gift. I have to admit I was a little apprehensive in trying it at first, mainly because I've become so accustomed to neutral colors. The thing I love about it is that it doesn't actually look purple against my skin. It actually comes off as powdery pink!

MAC Eye Kohl "Hyacinth"

I was actually introduced to this color via twitter by Kitty Cleopatra! I must say I've been loving it ever since. The color is a metallic, medium blue and it's very vibrant! It makes my eyes pop and its oh so fresh & flirty :-)

Get This Look: Step by Step

1. First, I apply the Star Violet shadow inside the inner corners of my eyes, then I rub a little underneath my bottom lashes.

2. Next I smooth on the Amber Lights shadow over my entire eyelid. I prefer only adding color to my eyelids instead of  brushing it all around the eyes, but either way will work.

3. Then,  I line only the bottom of my eyes with the eye liner.

4. Lastly, I apply one coat of the Cover Girl mascara to my lashes, I always have a hard time applying it to my bottom lashes without error so I just stick to the top ones.

So what do you think?
