We love hearing from makeup experts and enthusiasts about their tips and tricks of the trade when it comes to beauty. Today, makeup extraordinaire Marcela Alcala shows how to pull off bright eye shadow seamlessly.
We’ve all swooned over those beautiful eye shadow palettes with über-bright shades, but wondered how those lovely hues would translate to our eyes. Your wondering is over! I’ve got the secret to pulling off two of the boldest shades — teal and yellow — seamlessly: Put them together! This blended method can be used with other colors of the rainbow and be toned down or hyped up. Now that you’ve got the gist, let’s get started!
Step 1: The key to working with a yellow-gold and teal shadow is to keep the rest of your face fresh and understated. Begin by applying a light to medium foundation (we love L’Oréal True Match Foundation) all over your face. Use a beauty blender to buff out your foundation for a flawless finish. You can also dust a light bronzer on your forehead, cheek hollows and nose to add color. Just make sure that your skin looks natural and not overdone!
