Simplicity Series: Sparkly Black Pearl + Pop of Dark Teal

Continuing my Simplicity Series with this very simple yet fun eye look using only a cream eyeshadow and a pencil eyeliner. As stated previously, I love using cream eyeshadows when doing simple looks. They’re so versatile in that they can be used either alone or as an eyeshadow base. For this look, I applied the cream eyeshadow to my lid with my index finger. After applying the color to the lid, I took that index finger (without adding any additional product) and just pressed my finger into the crease area to fade the color upwards. I smudged a pencil eyeliner on my lower lashline to give a pop of color. The good thing about this look is that you can use any color eyeliner on the lashline to give a pop of color without being too overbearing. If you’re one to shy away from color, this is an easy way to test the waters.
