Batik Sun


I love wearing subtle, pretty looks during spring and summer because I’m typically wearing a bright colored top.  The problems I have with blogging about these looks are the details do not always translate in pictures, mainly due to my still limited knowledge of photography lighting.  Enough complaining…here is a look using Estee Lauder’s Batik Sun eye palette.  It’s a great palette for spring and summer.

Get This Look:

I applied a thin layer of primer on to prevent creasing.  I also used a colored base for this look for the sake of the pictures.  This isn’t necessary to get the colors to show up to the naked eye.  I decided to use a bright orange base for the lid and a dark brown for the outer corner.  I applied Fierce and Tangy first with a fluffy synthetic brush to the inner two-thirds and Rich Mahogany with a synthetic lid brush.  I blended the edges using a natural-haired brush and a skin-toned matte shadow (Mac’s Soft Brown).   I took this shade up to the brow.

Using a flat shader brush, I applied the pale gold shade to the lid except for the inner and outer corner.  I applied the peachy-orange shade to the inner corner and lash line using the other side of the shader brush.    I blended the edges using the same fluffy natural-haired brush. (Unfortunately, the orange isn’t that noticeable in the photo.)  I put the dark brown onto the outer corner using a Hakuhodo crease brush.  I concentrated the color near the lash line and blended over into the crease and ran the brush on my lower lash line.  I darkened the lower outer corner using Coconut Grove.

I lined my eyes with a dark brown gel liner using an INGLOT 30T angled liner brush.  I chose a gold pencil liner to line my lower water line.

I would pair this look with a soft orange cheek and soft neutral lip color.
