Summer Eyes 120 Colour Eyeshadow Palette Beautiful Kayekie

Things are definitely heating up in the tropics, summer is officially here! I’ve been waking up regularly stuck to my pillow, sign number one humidity is high. While I dearly miss the cooler weather I am very much looking forward to the bright colours that go hand in hand with summer.

Bold eye-shadow is something I could never master but secretly always wanted to. It’s on my bucket list (for real), so I thought what better way to start learning than with the 120 Colour Eye-shadow Palette (from Dino Direct). With so many colours to choose it was hard to go wrong. And besides, at $14.39 (USD), who cares if you can’t apply eyeshadow to save your life! Miss N and I had fun playing with all the shades…

120 Eyeshadow Palette Beautiful Kayekie

How to:

Step 1 – first summer-proof your eyes with a eye-shadow primer

Step 2 – apply a brightly coloured shade (1) over your entire lid, blending at the crease.

Step 3 – apply another bright shade (2) in the outer corner of your eyelid (over first colour), blend two colours lightly for a subtle gradient effect

Step 4 – place sticky tape at desired angle from outer eye corner towards temple/eyebrow. Tip: stick tape to your hand first a few times first, to reduce stickiness.

Step 5 – Draw black liner along lash line, winging out, then remove tape to reveal precise line.

Step 6 – apply a third bright shade (3) under your lower lashes, blend away any harsh lines.

Step 7 – highlight brow with neutral shade (4), and blend down towards bright colours at eyelid crease and blend (oh my gosh, how many times can I fit blend into a sentence? Blend, blend, blend… Girl you need a thesaurus)

Step 8 – Apply mascara and dazzle!

      Haha! Absolutely! 😀

      We should swap half and half, I’ll take a little cold and send you some heat. Our Airconditioning is dying and boy it gets hot lol! I’ve lived here most of my life and every year I say the same thing ‘why do I live in this heat??’

    The colours you combined are gorgeous, this is a good start for a bold eye makeup look 🙂

      Thank you Chloe! The colours were even brighter in person, the camera didn’t capture them well enough, and even still it wasn’t so much that I was afraid to wear it. I would absolutely wear those colours outside the house! 😀

      Hi Beautiful! I used a eyeshadow palette from Dino Direct international. It’s an online Chinese based shopping website. You can also buy these types of palettes on eBay and from around the web 🙂
