Over the weekend I decided to have a little fun and create two looks with Maybelline The Brights Palette.  While usually I’m only adding a pop of color on the lower lashline to keep things conservative I set my inner artist free and went with color all over – and I’ve got to admit I love it!

Maybelline The Brights Eyeshadow Palette – for a full review please see this post here.

I think my personal favorite is the first look because I’ve never worn those color combinations before!  The second look was an afterthought, but I really wanted to work with the deep purple and blues to share how they look on the eyes and to share my experience in working with them.  If you missed my review of this palette, you can see that here.

Makeup Look#1 Sizzling Summer Color

Something about color puts me in a sassy mood! 😉

For this eye look I used every shade in the first row (except the pink) as well as the deep brown from the bottom row.  On the lips: MAC Boldly Bare Lip Liner to line the lips with Maybelline Rebel Bloom in Barely Bloomed all over the lips. On the cheeks: Milani Luminoso

Makeup Look #2 Not So Blue

Blues and turquoise are my “safe” colors that I don’t feel shy about wearing, but sometimes wearing them all over the lids results in a “Mimi” kind of look.  I tried to keep the blue from blending too far up the lids and adding some purple to ground it.  I think I like it!

For this eye look I wanted to use the dark purple in the palette to see how it performs on the lids but instead of going with something deep I wanted to keep the overall look light and fresh so I went in with the royal blue and turquoise.  The whole color combination works because the color payoff is light yet I can build it up in certain spots so it is not overwhelming. On the lips: Maybelline Rebel Bloom Blushing Bud.  On the cheeks: LORAC Exposed
