Teals and Blues Using CARGO and MAC Eye Shadows
Here are some bright, bright blues from the Los Angeles eyeshadow palette from the Cargo Pro Picks collection. I am loving this palette because the colors are rich and hella pigmented. The bright teal is not for the faint of heart! It is lovely though and is just perfect for summer.
I also used one of my most favorite (if not THE most fave) MAC quads, Tone:Grey. The colors are very simple and yet so beautiful when applied. The most simple colors are indeed the prettiest.
Here is a step by step. All products MAC unless otherwise stated.
Apply Urban Decay primer potion all over lid and lower lashline. Using a fluffy shader brush, apply Rollickin' paint pot on lid.
Using a firm shader brush, apply Turquoise shade from the Cargo Los Angeles palette.
Using the Sonia Kashuk crease/blender brush, apply the teal color from the Cargo palette on the outer V. Blend with the 224 brush.
Using the same brush, apply The Right Smoke on the crease and blend with the teal shadow using the 224 brush.
Using the same brush, apply Waft on the outer V.
Blend with the 224.
Using the Essence of Beauty large fluffy brush, apply the shimmery white shadow from the Cargo palette.
Apply L'Oreal Lineur Intense liner on upper lashline.
Apply Chromagraphic pencil in NW25/NC30 on waterline (love this!). Apply Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero on tightline. Apply the turquoise shadow on the lower lashline. Apply Red Cherry falsies. Apply mascara.
