Look of the Day- Shimmer Water

by MakeupByKaylena on 2:46 PM

Hey Chicas,

This is my look for Friday! I'm in love with this look! I used a MAC shadow I don't use very often that is going to be premoted (although it is a perm. color) in MAC's upcoming To the Beach Collection, and that color is Shimmermoss. It's a fabulous green, teal color and I think it would be awesome paired with either green or blue shadows, like Freshwater. It's the blue I used today in my look, hence the title "Shimmer Water." ^_^

I rarely use it, although, it is a newer addition to my collection, but since summer is on it's way soon, I thought I would use it today with a deeper vibrant blue to create a sea like effect to my lid !

I guess it worked because today it is sooo rainy outside, haha. I still think it's absolutely beautiful and pairing it with a gold liner on the bottom lashline is a winning combo.

I think this summer I'm going to like wearing blues, teals, and greens. Theses shades are growing on me more and more each day. I think they look good with brown eyes and are a great shadow paired with dark hair, and olive skintones.

Please read more for other pictures and the products I used to create this look...
