I am always eager to see what the next seasons makeup trends will hold. I love experimenting with new products, new looks, or even repurposing products I already have, like for this look. One of the trends that I keep seeing pop up is the "blush eyes", but really just taking your favorite blush and using it as eyeshadow. I have done this before, but it was usually because I forgot to pack eyeshadow on a trip and needed a little color on my eyes. Then I saw this look on Lily Collins at the Golden Globes and thought, yes, I need to try this! And can I get that dress delivered to my house as well?
So I grabbed a few of my favorite everyday blush colors and just layered them until I got the perfect amount of standout blush on my eyes. I also took what was left on my brush and swiped it right under my lower lashes as well, for a more dramatic effect. It is soft and etherial, and perfect for Valentines Day! The last time I celebrated V-day I was in the fourth grade, so I will stick to wearing it on any given day. But it is really pretty paired with blush or other red tones.
A loose wrap braid seemed to be perfect to compliment the soft makeup, not to mention super quick and easy!
What do you think? Would you try the blush eyeshadow trend?
