ANALOGOUS COLOURS #2 – BLUE, GREEN

So….here’s look number 2 in my 3 part series called ‘Analogous Colours’. Just to recap: analogous colours lie next to one another on the colour wheel and always look good when used together. This time I focused on the blue-green portion of the colour wheel and used 4 different eye shadow colours to create this look. It reminds me of the vibrant colours seen in peacock feathers.

To make the eye shadows more vibrant I used ELF Makeup Lock & Seal – I have had this product in my make up kit for almost 2 years and never used it until now; I have no idea why! It’s such a good product and I was really impressed with how vivid the colours turned out. Since my eye shadow was quite bright I decided to go for a nude-pink lipstick and minimal blush. This technique keeps the focus on the eyes, but with make up one can always break the rules so you could wear a red lipstick for a more dramatic look.

So if you are feeling bold, give this look a try and strut like a peacock! Stay tuned for Analogous Colours #3…..the pressure is on! Not sure what I’m going to create yet but I’m thinking lots of pinks and purples.
