Hello my lovelies!
First off, a huge thank you to all of you for so much love on my posts lately. All the engagement has really helped improve my mood, which hasn’t been great as of late. Between the surge of new followers (hello, welcome) and the increase in views and likes, you guys have been my number one motivator to keep trucking along when I really haven’t felt like it lately, and I owe you one.
When I chose Rose Quartz as my next precious stone look, I didn’t anticipate it being so difficult. Sure, I definitely needed to include some pink, but I wanted more depth and layers to the look overall. I then decided to add a little brown for the bottom of the stone that clearly would’ve been yanked out of the earth, and green on the lower lashline to show the earthiness and natural properties of the stone, because why not? Plus, frosty colors always look really good together.
Back to my original paragraph, it’s been a little rough for me lately. My personal life has been a pretty out of sorts which is bound to happen, but given the mental illness I work with, change and unplanned life events don’t usually sit well with me. Nevertheless I have been able to work through the bumps in the road much quicker than I have been able to in the past, and that shows me that I am improving in my coping skills each time. If you’ve been feeling this way or have ever felt this way, I don’t want to tell you some sort of proverb to try and fix it for you, I just want you to know that I understand how tough it is and that I’m here to listen when, and if, you should ever need it. You are absolutely not alone even though it sure feels that way sometimes.
Let’s Get Started:
- Prime the eyes with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
- Begin to blend a very light, close to your skin tone brown into the crease. Extend from the crease to the outer corner and the brow bone.
- Deepen the crease and outer v with a mid toned brown shadow. If you want more drama, you are free to go darker, but I did create this as a day time look.
- Wet a flat brush and pack a frosty light pink shadow across the first half of the lid. Wait to dry slightly, then blend out any harsh edges.
- Blend the midtoned brown from the outer corner of the lashline to the halfway point. I prefer to really smoke out my lower lashline but the intensity is entirely up to you.
- Place a frosty light green shadow on the inner corner, blending toward the brown at the midpoint of the lashline. Layer this shadow until the desired intensity is reached.
- Curl and coat your lashes with mascara. Apply Falsies if that’s your thing.
That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a magical Monday!
