As promised, I couldn’t wait to share my new daytime eye look with you after picking up the Ramatuelle Eye Trio from the Nars Summer 2012 collection. Ramatuelle combines two shimmers: silver and icy peach, along with with a matte apricot.
After priming my eye, I start with the Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Hollywoodland– a light champagne color that adds depth and a bit of shimmer to my lid. Next I dust on the middle icy peach shade over my lid. By combining the Soft Touch pencil with the shadow, this sets the shimmer.
Next, I take a blending brush and apply the apricot color into my outer crease. It’s important to find a good blending brush that has a small circumference and a tapered point so that you can diffuse or intensify color where needed. Since this is my Nars week on MascaraJunkie.com, I of course love and use the No. 2 Eye Contour Brush. To be friendlier on the wallet try this E.L.F. contour brush.
To complete the look, take very sharp brown eye pencil and make as thin of a line against your lashes that you can manage. If you need to make the look a little more glam, lightly dust the silver under the arch of your brow! The colors in this trio are so complimentary that anyone can wear them and create a beautiful bright eye.
PS- I would have taken a photo, but I’ve had a bad cold and a picture would not be a good idea right now. Keep an eye out on my Twitter Feed next week. @mascarajunkie
