EOTD: Mint Eye Look (Using Lorac Mint Edition Palette)
Hey everyone! This is actually an eye look that I did a while back. I think it was around when Lorac Cosmetics was having a contest where people would send in pictures whenever they spotted the color mint. Sadly I didn't win with any of entries. Oh well, there is always a next time with other contests. LOL Anyways because of the contest, I wanted to do a mint eye look. I have never worn the color mint on my eyes before and I actually quite look it. I was afraid that it wasn't going to be so wearable but it actually came out pretty natural. You can probably even wear this eye look to work too but probably without the blue liner on your waterline.
I was so excited when I created this eye look because it was the first time where I used my Lorac Mint Edition palette. The whole thing that made me want the palette was the mint shadow. I actually wish that this palette had the shades names on the bottom like their other palettes. It would be so much easier to have the names of the shadows when talking about them. Plus there are some shades that I would love to purchase, if I ever do hit pan and finish them.
EYE PRODUCTS USED:
◊ Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer
I love priming my eyes with this primer. I love the packaging. It keeps the product more sanitary since you squeeze the primer out whether than using a wand or your fingers.
◊ Lorac Mint Edition palette
I used the third shade (mint) all over my lid. Then I used the first shadow (light cream) to blend everything and applied some onto the brow bone as a highlight.
◊ Ulta Kohl Eye Liner "Halo"
I really like this eye liner. I always use it on the inner corner to my eyes to give them that more brighten, wide awake look. Its a frosty white but I applied some of the cream shade from the palette on top to set it.
◊ Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara "Black"
I really like this mascara. It gives my lashes volume but it doesn't lengthen them that much, which sucks a bit but that is fine.
◊ Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara "Blackest Black"
I bought this mainly for the summer for those beach days but have been using it mainly for my lower lashes since its a waterproof mascara. It doesn't clump but just gives me volume. It does smudge sometimes but not always, which is weird.
◊ ELF Studio Eyebrow Kit "Dark"
I love this kit for eyebrows. I think this is like my 6th repurchase of it. It has everything I need: mini brush, brow wax, and a brow powder! Plus the brow wax doesn't have any red undertone to it like the Revlon BrowFantasy brow gel and pencil does.
◊ Cargo Eyeliner "Blue"
For some reason, the blue is coming out more vibrant in the pictures but in person, its a more darker blue. I just love the look of having mint all over the lid and then having a bold blue on the waterline as a contrast.
◊ ELF Natural False Eye Lashes
I don't really like these false lashes that much but I am trying to use them up since I bought a couple. The band is too flexible and is hard for my apply. I wouldn't repurchase again.
So those are all the products that I used to create this mint eye look. Its super simple and you could basically use any mint shade, if you don't have the Lorac Mint Edition palette. There are some drugstore brands that have mint shades, like Wet N Wild. I think one of their new limited edition ColorIcon palettes has a mint shade in it. I hope you guys liked it even though its so simple but those are the types of eye looks that I typically wear.
Do you like wearing mint shades?
