Hot pink and shimmering turquoise two-tone liner for a simple graphic punch to an otherwise very simple eye done in nude tones. Add pink gloss to tie it all together.
I did what is referred to "shopping your stash" and dug out some long-lost products/brands I haven't used in a while. I loaded up on Madison Street Beauty eyeshadows a couple years ago. They're a brand since dissolved but for a small indie company, their loose mineral shadows are vivid and long lasting. I used a shimmery one for facial and brow highlight, and a matte brown/pink all over the eye for a neutral backdrop against the colored liners.
The pink eyeliner was a gift I got at the Makeup Show NYC last year on the Beauty Tour. The Ardency Inn brand is a punk rock line founded by my industry idol, James Vincent. Modster liner goes on smoothly, doesn't budge and is highly saturated. One line yielded all that bright pink.
I'm really into colored liner for spring and summer. It's a fun and easy way to add a pop of color to the eye. The two tone method adds an extra notch by juxtaposing two bright colors together. While teal and pink aren't exact complimentary colors to one another, they are far apart enough on the wheel to create an almost identical tension we visualize between red and green being next to one another.
Color theory and optical illusions FTW!
