How can you incorporate Radiant Orchid in your make-up?

Here is how I wear it — keeping it subtle, natural, and soft with Elizabeth Adren‘s Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in, “Golden Orchid“. 

$24 CAD (NET WT .09 OZ 2.5 g)
 

 Application:
I applied “Golden Orchid” on my entire lid. To add more definition to my eye, I took a darker purple shade and applied it in my crease and blended it out for a softer look.

 “Golden Orchid” is a beautiful shade of purple and very close to the actual “Radiant Orchid” shade. What I like about the eye shadow is that it has gold flecks in it which makes it more wearable for an everyday look. The eye shadow doesn’t appear too bright on the skin, so this is perfect for those who want a colourful, yet subtle & soft look.

If you are new to Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Color Eye Shadows, they are:

  • long-lasting
  • crease-free
  • improves appearance of signs of aging (i.e., smooths skin)

{Beauty Panel} 90s Beauty Make-up is Back! What 90s make-up trend would you try?

When I think of 1990s makeup, I think of Brenda Walsh from the original 90210, Kelly Kapowski from Saved by the Bell, and Daisy (Neve Campbell) from Catwalk— all beautiful women! (Did I just reveal my age?) This week’s inspiration is a bit of Brenda and Daisy mixed together: sexy and sultry with a blend of grunge.

What makes this look? Soft smoky brown eyes and deep red wine lips.

Part of the 1990s beauty trend this season is a focus on the lower lash line. So grab your favourite neutral eye shadow palette—one of my favourites is the Wet ‘n Wild Comfort Zone palette. It’s very pigmented and super affordable!

After you apply eye shadow on your lids:

1. Take a dark brown eye shadow with an eye liner brush and apply it to your lower lash line. Concentrate the colour closest to your lash line and then blend down diffusing the colour.

2. Take a lighter brown eye shadow and apply it slightly under your lower lash line. This will help achieve the gradient smoky affect, going from dark to light.

3. To keep this ’90s look modern, add a lighter colour on the inner corner of your eye to brighten up the look.

4. Apply your favourite mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

If you want to go a step further with the 1990s beauty trend, add a wine-coloured lipstick. This was definitely a staple in Brenda Walsh’s purse!
