Two Looks Using the NEW Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Eye Shadows

For these two looks, I used a mix of both my fingers and brushes for application. I mainly used my Sigma E25 for blending out edges and I used my bareMinerals full tapered shadow brush and fingers to apply the product from the pot. To line my eyes, I used a smashbox precision brush, unless otherwise stated. I used no primer and these shadows stuck around all day...not that I was surprised. I'm still loving these new shades, and I'm looking forward to using them as a colored eye shadow base next.

Look #1:

I tapped Gold Shimmer all over the lid and blended Mossy Green into the crease and outer corner. Next, I applied Rich Mahogany lightly to the outer corner and blended into the crease. I also ran Rich Mahogany on the outer third of the lash line, both top and bottom. I applied Mossy Green to the middle of the lower lash line and Gold Shimmer to the inner third. Using Barely Beige, I placed it onto the inner corner of my eye, and blended it onto the brow bone for a highlight. I lined my upper lash line with L'OREAL Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Bronze, as well as the upper and lower water line, just using the brush that came with it.

Look #2:

I blended a wash of Barely Beige over the entire lid, from lash line to the brow bone. Next, I placed Gold Shimmer in the crease and deepened with Rich Mahogany, concentrating on the outer corner. I lined my upper lash line with Mossy Green. Once again, I lined my water line with the L'OREAL Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Bronze.

I typically include a matte shade in my eye shadow looks, but I wanted to use only these new shades. Is it shimmery? Yes. Is it too much shimmer? You decide. I don't think I'd feel self conscious leaving the house with these looks, but I also think it might be nice to incorporate some sort of matte shade for a more toned down appearance. However, when blended out, both Rich Mahogany and Mossy Green give more dimension than just a straight up shimmer eyeshadow normally would.

How would you wear these shades? Let me know what your suggestions are below!

    1. Thanks! I didn't experiment before, so this was my first go at using them together - I like the result, but I think I can do better :)
