3 easy looks using Maybelline Color Tattoo

 love makeup.I love reading about makeup and makeup trends. I love collecting makeup too. Do I love wearing it? Yes! I love how I can add some spark to my face with a lipshade or a coloured eyeliner. But do I actually wear it? Err. Hmm. Not really.. Why? Cos I feel shy. I feel what if people start think, "what was she thinking? who wears makeup to office" or "why is she wearing makeup for a movie"?

I love putting it on for weddings and parties. But besides that I don't really wear anything besides kaajal and a lip balm/gloss anywhere else. But this means I can't buy more till I'm done with what I have  I mean what's the point of just hoarding on things. So I've decided to try and find ways in which I can utilise the hoards of makeup that I have.

I have the Maybelline Color Tatoo eyeshadow in Edgy Emerald that I bought some two months ago. Now the pigment is really strong and the colour quite dramatic making it not a very "everyday" product. So I thought of different ways in which I can wear it to utilise it better.

You will need:

  • Maybelline Color Tatoo in whatever shade you have
  • A thin line brush

Look 1: Coloured eyeliner for a casual movie/lunch outing

  1. Take a small amount of the shadow on your brush 
  2. Line your upper lash line thinly
  3. This is a nice option for a soft dewy fresh look for the daytime

Look 2: Smudged shadow for a formal dinner date

  1. Dab your fingers on to the pigment
  2. Smudge only the lower half of your lid
  3. You can then use your black eyeliner or even a dark blue one to line your upper lash
  4. Wear this look for a formal dinner date or when you dancing to give your eyes the right amount of pop!

Look 3: Edgy emerald with gold shadow for wedding functions
  1. Apply gold eyeshadow with your finger tips in your inner part of your eyelids
  2. Apply the edgy emerald pigment with your fingers again on the outer part of your eyelid 
  3. Try to blend the two shadows in the middle
  4. Line your upper lash line with your favourite black eyeliner thinly
  5. line your lower lash line with the edgy emerald pigment and smudge to create an even effect
  6. Wear this look for dramatics eyes with your heavy Indian outfits

What do you'll think of these looks? have you'll used the color tattoos before? Do let me know how did you wear them.
