Shana + Limecrime + Boredom =
1 minute limecrime eyes!
Here’s a more subtle limecrime look (at least I think it’s more subtle;-) that I did in about 1 minute! (please bare with my photos– I took em’ myself in some pretty bad lighting. My eyes are a lot more sparkly than these pics show;-)
Face: Sheer magik finishing powder, a mac concealer for under my eyes (can anyone say “baggy!”? ;-)
Lots of people ask me how to apply limecrime shadows. The easiest way to apply limecrime without making a mess is to dip your brush into some tap water and then lightly dip it into the powder. Take that and brush it into the lid of the container. Using the lid to mix the potency of your shadow makes everything every easy! (you can apply it dry for a lighter look too;-)
1. Take a dab of lime criminal and mix it with a drop of water into the lid. Then brush it on the top of the eyelid generously up to the crease. The more powder you brush on, obviously the brighter it will become. I winged the shadow out a little beyond my lid and then brought it down under my eye for a little green “liner.”
2. Take nymph and apply it wet to the corners of the lid as well as applying it up to the brow for some shimmer. It will apply shimmer without much color. I also painted nymph into the inside corners of my eyes and brought it down under my eye for some gold “liner” on the inside. (putting shimmer in the corners of your eyes can brighten them up if you have deeper set eyes or darker skin in the corners.
3. This is an optional step but it will “seal” the shadows. Take some sheer magik powder and very lightly dust it onto your lids to set it.
4. Apply mascara.
5. I applied blush and concealer (though I couldn’t zoom back far enough to show you!). Do your concealer AFTER you apply your shadows– that way you can cover anything you didn’t get perfect;-)
6. A final fun optional touch! If you want a little extra shimmer. you can paint some nymph over your lipgloss or lipstick and it will add a golden hue to it;-)
