Eyes White Shut

So one stand out makeup trend from fashion week was white eyeshadow as seen at Ralph Lauren and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Models sported a fresh faced wide eyed look:

My take on it is slightly different. I love using light shades when I have a tan because the white compliments it really well. Unfortunately I do not currently have a tan so in the picture at the beginning of this post the white does not stand out. However, for that photo I used Milk It! and Pause for Applause, both by benefit.

(Milk It! all over the lid and then Pause for Applause just above the crease in the outer corner)

When used with a tan the eyes really stand out.

I usually pair the white eyeshadow with a bright lip as they also look great with a tan however because I am so pale right now I am almost see through, I just went for a standard nude (Dior La Grege)

Voila!

I actually use white on a daily basis for my everyday makeup look in the form of Mac’s eye khol in Fascinating. I use this white pencil to highlight under my eyebrows and the water line of my lower lashes. It is a staple in my makeup kit however I haven’t done the white shadow thing in a while so it’s interesting to see it come back in January. I think this is something that will work better in the summer when we don’t all look paler than Lord Voldemort.
