Two Shimmery Eye Looks to Warm Up Winter

Posted Jan 27 2014 5:19am

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a #doyourmakeup review…let’s just say I jumped at the chance to review some gorgeous new shimmery eye colors from Mary Kay . These samples were provided to me to facilitate my review but the opinions on them are all my own.

MK new colors

Behold the shimmer! New Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colors in Sparkling White, Glistening Gold, and Shimmering Lilac.

I gravitate toward shimmery eye colors in general, especially to highlight my browbone, although I do have a few matte colors to balance things out.  These new mineral eye colors from Mary Kay are a shimmer-lover’s dream! They are perfect for day or night, because they are pretty light colors so the shimmer isn’t too intense.  I tried out two new looks featuring these shades and some of my classic favorites. The first is called “Sugarplum Fairy” – a great purple shimmer that goes perfectly with this icy cold weather we’ve been having!

For this look, I used four Mary Kay mineral eye colors – the new shimmers Sparkling White and Shimmering Lilac, and two of my favorites that I already owned, Sienna and Sweet Plum.

Sienna Sweet Plum

Sienna (matte) and Sweet Plum (shimmer)

To get this look, I applied the Sparkling White on my brow bone and on the inner corners of my eyes. Then, I brushed the shimmering lilac all over the lower lid. I put the matte Sienna in the crease and topped it off with Sweet Plum in the outer corner of the crease and lash line. I lined my eyes with Mary Kay eyeliner in black and used Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in black as well. Easy and shimmery, I love this look! Even though it uses 4 colors, it really does not take long to do. The beauty of Mary Kay mineral eye colors is that a LITTLE goes a long way.

And now, for my next look! I love this one because it adds a little WARM shimmer to these cold winter days. It’s an especially great look for those of us with blue eyes because the colors really make blue eyes pop.

Golden Blaze Eyeshadow

It’s called “Golden Blaze” and it uses three of my classic favorites Amber Blaze, Hazelnut, and Espresso, with the new and gorgeous shimmer color Glistening Gold.

To get this fabulous look, I applied Glistening Gold all over my brow bone and on the inner corners of my eyes. Next, I applied Amber Blaze heavily all over my lower lid. I used Hazelnut in the crease to define, and the darker Espresso in the outer corner of the crease and lower lash line. Once again, a little goes a long way, and this eye shadow look took just a few minutes to do.

Mary Kay eyeshadow has been my favorite for years, and these new shimmery shadows remind me of why. Great, long-lasting color and eyes that really stand out.
