A Beautiful Shadow!!



Featured Product: "Cranberry" by Mac!!
(This color does a great job bringing out green eyes) 










I decided to use a color that I had in my makeup palette for  awhile, however never got around to finding the right colors to use with it to achieve a pretty look!! I finally decided yesterday to use the shadow and came to the conclusion after a few trials that I really like the contrast of the white on the eyelid with the cranberry above it!!


















To achieve this look I used an eyeshadow stick "Milk" by NYX all over my eyelid!! I do this to make sure that my eyeshadow will stay all day!! This product also helps your shadow look more vibrant!!


This product can be purchased @ Ulta

The next thing I did was apply a shimmer eyeshadow in the whitest color I had. I used the Coastal Scents Palette "Ultra Shimmer"

I used the white color located on the far left top row! 


After applying the shimmery white shadow I take a #217 brush by Mac dipped it into CRANBERRY and swipe it  above my eyelid .This brush blends the color very very well!! 
After the shadow is blended very very well -I use a Mac shadow color "Shroom" under my eyebrow. When you apply a light color under your eyebrow it is referred to as a highlight color. This makes the eye appear more lifted!!

Once applied take a black shadow and apply it to the crease of your eye. I used the shadow Carbon by Mac

The look was finally complete!!



I was really happy how it turned out!!
