Kit picked an Azure Water Lily in 2000

I struggled with these colors today. Working with a couple of requested colors, of which I was able to get samples from my BE boutique, I worked with two eyecolors I’ve never used before – 2000 and Azure. Both are pretty colors – 2000 seems to be all sparkle, which is why I found it hard to work with. I love sparkle, but it’s easier if the eyecolor has more substance than just the sparkle. Azure is a really pretty ocean blue.

I used Water Lily, a light lavender color, to blend out the lines, and k.i.t. as a crease color. To finish up, I used the Pretty Amazing lipcolor in Confidence, which is a really great raspberry color.

  • Azure foiled on outer 1/2 of lid from lashes into crease, using the Foil & Fuse brush
  • Water lily along browbone to blend out lines, also blending out line between 2000 and Azure on the lid, using Contour brush
  • k.i.t. lightly in crease, using Contour brush

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
