FOTN: Color Blocking Using MAC Pigments

The fashion trend this Summer is "Color Blocking". It's a combination of two or more solid colors that compliments each other in an outfit. Now, I may not have all kinds of bold and bright colors in my closet to rock a cool color blocking outfit such as ReallyPetite and LoveLifeFashion, but I can always do it with makeup. I can mix and match any bright eye shadow/lip colors to create a fun "Color Blocking" makeup look.

For example, I created this makeup look using bright yellow all over the eye lids, aqua teal on the lower lash line, then paired them with some pink lips. It's a fun look to sport this Summer. I think anyone can rock it as long as you have the confidence. I wore this look last night to the L.A. Film Festival and got a few compliments from younger women and the rest were weird "wtf" stares from guys haha...












All the colors I used on my eyes are by MAC. Partylicious pigment (aqua-teal with green/teal shimmers), Primary Yellow pigment (matte true yellow) and Shroom (satin champagne beige) eye shadow. Man, I don't even remember the last time I used all MAC on my eyes lol. You know me, I like to mix high end and low end, but I have these MAC pigments that I haven't tried, so I had to give it some love. It was my first time using them and they were amazing. I just had to be really careful when I opened the container because it can get messy.




False Lashes are ES A24 provided by KKCenterhk.com. These criss cross lashes are fun and dramatic. They are optional, but I like using them because it completes the look.
