Minerals Eye Look: Hot and Cold

Hello ladies,

This eye look is a meeting of hot and cold. Visit in your mind's eye the time in early evening when the temperature shifts. I wanted to express those minutes in between with color. The shadows used are Minerals from Overall Beauty.

The first stripe of color is on bare skin. The second is over Reviva Labs Makeup Primer.
Orion: navy blue shimmer with a hint of purple. Deepest blue when applied over primer.
Snow: sheer white sparkle.

Blue Skyz: A pale blue shimmer that can be used to highlight or built for a brighter appearance.
Peachy: a light and creamy peach color.

Calendula: A terra cotta orange shade.

Across the lid, I am wearing Blue Skyz, applied heavily. In the contour is the gorgeous navy shimmer Orion. Peachy and Calendula are blended over the brow bone. I then tapped a bit of Snow over the warm colors to make them sparkle.

I used Hard Candy Walk the Line liquid liner in sugar plum on the upper lid. The lower lid has Blue Skyz meeting with Snow towards the inner corner of the eye.

I enjoyed my first experience with Minerals from Overall Beauty. These are great shadows for ladies who are new to makeup or are experimenting with color. The shades go on soft and can be built up easily for a bolder look. They are virtually mistake proof.
