How To: Revamp Your Eyeshadows

Getting bored with your regular eyeshadows? A quick way to vamp them up is to add a darker color with a pencil liner or cream eyeshadow underneath. This makes the color on top so much more vivid and adds a little twist to it. It can also bring out the sparkles in certain eyeshadows. Don’t believe me? Just check out the combos below (the color on the right is the original color):

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + MAC Gorgeous Gold Eyeshadow

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + MAC Pink Pearl Pigment

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + MAC Steel Blue Pigment

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + MAC Iris Print Eyeshadow

Other combos that I like:

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + Tilt Eyeshadow
MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + Vex Eyeshadow
MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + Beauty Marked Eyeshadow
MAC Smolder Eye Kohl + Trax Eyeshadow
