Eyeshadow Tips: Blue + Brown = Hotness

May 30, 2006

Pairing blue with brown is a hottt look for the summer. Want proof? Just look at the print ad from Shu Uemuera on the left. Makeup companies are also putting both shades in their eyeshadow palettes.

* Hard Candy Eyeshadow Quartet in Suede
* Estee Lauder Graphic Color EyeShadow Quad in Enigmatic Khaki
* Kate Contrasting Eyes Palette in EX-1
* Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow/Glow on Palette from the Amaterasu collection
* MAC Blue Brown pigment

I did a similar look a few days ago but instead, I used MAC Surreal eyeshadow on my entire lid, MAC Zonk Bleu! eyeshadow on the crease and lined my top and bottom lashes with Jane’s Magical Mushroom eyeshadow. The result? A look that is pretty and not too over the top.

    yup Jessalyn, brown looks *hot* with green too! I have brown eyes and I wore this combo tonight – I used MAC’s Green Gamin and Greensmoke over the entire lid with Mark’s Tiki on the crease.
