My absolute favorite is using some Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadows that I bought a year ago so I’ve had plenty of time to wear these for summer looks. Golden Rhea is a very pale gold while Bohemian Waxwing is an iridescent bronzed champagne. Neither of these are colors that are bold, they are soft and shimmery and that’s what I love about them. I’m not a matte kind of woman, try as I may. I like some shimmer and I like my eyes to have just the right touch of sparkle without anyone wondering if I have glitter on my eyes. These fit the bill.
What I did for this summer eye is to start with Laura Mercier Platinum Metallic Cream eyeshadow, one of my all time favorite bases. I used RBR Golden Rhea on the lid and RBR Bohemian Waxwing on the lid, lined with Painted Earth Baroque Gel Eyeliner Pencil and added mascara.
For a second look using the same Rouge Bunny Rouge and Laura Mercier shadows I used Eddie Funkhouser Liquid Eyeliner in black along with Eddie Funkhouser mascara. The difference is that I applied Golden Rhea on the inner eye and Bohemian Waxwing on the outer. Slight changes but a little more dramatic (at least in real life!).
Now when I really want some color for this summer I’ll turn to my MAC Bare My Soul eyeshadow quad that I’ve probably bored you with. In that quad I love the shades in this quad: light taupe, gold, brownish bronze and a greenish shade. I like to wear that with Painted Earth Baroque Gel Eyeliner pencil too or with Make Up For Ever 52L in that bright teal to wake things up.
So now you know what I like to look like in the summer. Nothing drastic, nothing bright and gaudy since I must “act” my age. Please click on the other icons to see what my fellow Makeup Wars bloggers have chosen. I almost always want to buy things after reading and I bet you will too. — Marcia
