Summer may almost be over girls, but that doesn’t mean our make-up has to get darker and grungier (just yet anyway!). A simple statement eye can give your look that instant girly touch- even if your look is a full black outfit! Experimenting with a pop of colour can be quite intimidating, especially for more of a day time look however, your gal Lauren is here to show you that a statement eye is sooo wearable; whether that be for some lunch out with your besties; a cute AF date; a day to night look; and you my gal could be on the receiving end of all the compliments! This look makes it appear like you applied more effort to your eyes and make-up than you actually did! YouTube can be quite intimidating; feeling like you need to learn a lot of specific techniques to master a statement eye look however, seeing as I can't even grasp winged liner, I'm going to show you how you can do this without all the technical dramz!
Now, I will fully admit, I personally love a brown smoky eye day to day myself. Even at night I’ll usually play it safe but lately I have been experimenting more with pink and peach toned hues and I feel my ‘look’ (whatever that even is!) is much fresher for it. It’s fab because, as a slave to false lashes, a statement eye makes me look more put together on it’s own resulting in my falsies surviving longer as I can go out with just mascara on (sometimes even ditching this completely as well- who even am I??) and admittedly, get out the door much quicker! Lazy gal comment here but the perks of a 1 or 2 toned day-time statement eye is you can get away with using the same brush for both colours and tbh, who doesn’t love a simple life yano?
So on that note babe, here below is my video of my ‘Pink & Dreamy’ day time make-up tutorial. Key features include: Makeup obsession 'kisses' palette (my Product of the Week this week- no sh*t xo) IT Cosmetics CC cream and following on from my love of their products in my last blog, I Heart Revolution as well! I hope you enjoy this wee - but really not so wee - tutorial and let me know in the comments- What is your favourite colour for a statement eye? Or are you a sucker for playing it safe, too?
It’s 2020 huns, this year in general feels like one big experiment anyway so why not try something new with your look too? And if it doesn’t work then just leave it behind in 2020 like everything else that went t*ts up!
