Throwback Thursdays: Bright Blue Inner Corners and Ice Skating!
I were given all of the nostalgic feels with this overdue ’90s-inspired glance with brilliant blue inside corners (thank you, MAC Tilt). Was anyone else obsessive about blazingly brilliant inside nook highlights long ago when? I maximum indubitably was once. I generally rocked MAC Vex across the tear ducts. (Side word: generally accompanied by way of a frosty forehead bone and HELLA SKINNY brows, OMG!)
I felt like revisiting old-school inside nook highlights with this glance as a result of I noticed a personality dressed in one thing an identical on a display I simply began observing on Netflix referred to as Spinning Out.
It’s a drama about some Olympic hopeful ice skaters (January Jones of Mad Men reputation is in it), and for those who get started observing it, simply FYI, 1) there’s extra drama than exact skating, and 2) you received’t be capable to glance away, as a result of one thing over-the-top occurs to the characters each 5 mins. It’s now not Melrose Place within the ’90s caliber bat-sh*t cray, nevertheless it’s lovely shut.
Anywho…like I used to be announcing, one of the most major characters wore a an identical glance with a shimmery blue inside nook spotlight to a skating festival. I, alternatively, wore it round the home to do laundry. 🙂 I did stay it on after I left to select up Connor at preschool, however I buffed down the blue fairly a bit of to make it extra wearable and much less in-your-face.
The pencil brush is your pal.
It have been some time since I wore this sort of daring commentary inside nook, and doing so jogged my memory that a pencil brush is your pal, particularly whilst you’re putting shadow in a decent area like the internal nook.
Sure, you have to simply press some shadow there together with your finger — and that’s one thing I do at all times with shimmery peaches, beiges and pinks for a cushy spotlight — but when you need concentrated, intense colour, take hold of a pencil brush.
I love to start out by way of making use of the shadow across the inside nook with the pencil brush. Then I rainy the comb head with a surroundings spray, dip it again into the similar eyeshadow (don’t fail to remember to faucet off the surplus), and practice the simply across the tear duct to accentuate the colour and shimmer and create a delicate gradient.
Then, I take any other pencil brush and melt out the perimeters.
I feel this impact seems to be tremendous cool with many alternative colours — blue, inexperienced, gentle red, even purple!
Speaking of ice skating…
Another attainable facet impact of observing Spinning Out has been that I fell right into a rabbit hollow of therefore observing a slew of ancient Olympic ice skating performances on YouTube. This one by way of Michelle Kwan from 2002 in Salt Lake City made me tear up a bit of (OK, so much).
