Eye Adventures

I have always been more of a minimalist when it comes to makeup.  My typical routine consists of a base powder, quick brush of bronzer, mascara and lip gloss.  I rarely do anything more with my eyes unless it is a special occasion, such as a birthday or wedding.  During the rare instances that I do attempt to wear shadow and liner, I find myself using same color scheme and "eye effect" that I have been doing since college.  I have come to realize that I need to break out of my boring makeup shell and try something new for a change.  I recently started becoming more adventurous with my lipstick, which truly does make a world of difference, and I am now ready to start experimenting with my eyes.  Utilizing my new favorite website, Pinterest, I found a few inspiring new eye looks that I am dying to try out this winter.  Not to mention I am equally as excited for my shopping trip to buy all the right makeup supplies.  Once I learn how to replicate some of the looks below, I will be sure to share my results.  Which one is your favorite?

  1. I feel the same, I am not so great at doing my own make up and keep it to the minimum. I love these gorgeous eyeshadow looks!


  2. I've always loved doing cat eye makeup but not to an extreme just simplistic. Love the looks, very subtle but noticeable. Pairing it with red lips always makes a statement also.
    Feel free to swing by my blog, take a look and follow if you like it. Hope to see you around.

  6. Definitely consider the makeover at Sephora. You can do a 1 hour makeover if you spend $50 on makeup. I hear the new Sephora in the meatpacking district has the best staff, taken from all of the stores, so get an appointment there if you can!
