Pop Coloured Eyelids: Thumbs up or down?

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I'm terrible when it comes to applying eye makeup and probably that is why I stick to my good friend, the red lipstick most of the time. Having said that, I'm utterly intrigued with the new trend that is everywhere right now - the colour popped lids . It seems that ladies all around the globe are swapping their black eyeliner for this unexpected pop of bright eye-shadow onto their top lid.

I'm torn, but what do you think? Would you try this look? Have you already? What pop of colour would you go with? xo

P.S: If you fancy trying it, here is the how to.
P.P.S: Also, three snazzy ways to va va voom.

I tried it last week with a bright green eyeshadow and I even got a few complements from strangers, which was very nice. Wish I could pull-off the yellow look. Love, Amy

Thumbs up! Like Natasha, I like to sport an electric blue. But I also like a bright violet too. Those are the two colors that work best with my skin tone and eye color. Although I don't like to wear it over the entire lid. Just a thick line close to the lashes does the trick.

Bright blue sounds super pretty, Natasha and Jillian. And I'm loving the idea of bright violet as well.

Thumbs up! Love it for Summer. I always so purple or teal or both!

That looks absolutely great!
I don't know what colour will I try to my brown eyes.
But it's really really cool ;D

I'm much too old for this and usually don't like fads but this one is kind of pretty. Fun with a white summer dress, or even a colorful one I suppose. Yep, I like it :)

Oh!, I'm not that bold...I tried some gold now and then, but colur, like you, just sexy red lips to me...
Big hugs!

That is fantastic, Amy and Jeanette, so true. Would look so pretty with a white summer dress:)

Not sure if I could confidently pull off the yellow or orange, but I have been known to do a smokey eye with dark purple and love it...maybe I will try something in the blues/greens and see how that goes!

WELL! If you look like these beauties, then why not try a bright coloured eye colour. Not sure if yellow would work, but I'd certainly give it a go!

I've seen it work in magazines, but every instance i've seen it in real life, it looks gaudy.

Ooooo, I like it! It's so funky and fresh!

I think this is AMAZING!

My face tone and color doesn't work so well together. I did have a pop of turquoise when getting married, looked great in photos. But as an everyday thing, not so much.

PS I also think it looks better on the younger crowd :)

Love!!! Can you imagine mint? or hot pink?! So pretty and fun!

I love the yellow.

Diana Mieczan said...

Dark purple would look super snazzy, TheChambrayCountess.

Diana Mieczan said...

Good point, Amy:) And mint..oh yes, HiLLjO! Beautiful.
