Most eyeshadow lovers tend to fall into one of two camps – bold or bare. Personally, I’m part of the latter, and as most of you know, I have an embarrassing number of nude eyeshadows. Embarassing.
But since Westfield has started running their campaign, #BoldFaceorBare, it got my creative juices flowing about the different types of looks I could do. With these two MAC eyeshadow quads, I’ve been having a go at creating three bold and three bare looks to show you guys over the next few days.
The first look is inspired partly by the Spring Dior and Chanel quads that have featured strong dark pink eyeshadows. Perhaps it’s my nude “roots”, but the look I went for was a bold eyeliner look. Here I’ve used the MAC Passionate eyeshadow, which is a gorgeously shocking, matte dark pink.
I was going for a grungy edge, so I decided to use the black pencil liner to drag down the eyes. To do this, I lined along the outside of my eyes on both the top and bottom, and adjusted them so that they were both thicker on the outside than the inside.
To bring back a bit of femininity, I used lashings of mascara. It was also key to compliment the bold eyes using bold brows – I used my day-to-day shade on the inner half of my brows but accentuated the tail with a dark brown. The blush was something super simple - I went for a powder pink, with Illamasqua Tremble.
