Today’s makeup: Gradient

I’ve noticed a lot of beauty bloggers wearing turquoise on their lower waterline so I wanted to try that look for myself using a gradient effect. I have several colorful eyeliners that I don’t use enough, so I put them on my face today.





I achieved the look by lining one half of my lower waterline with a navy liner, and then used a tapered angled brush to apply the turquoise shadow to the other half, overlapping the colors near the middle so that the colors fade into each other. It’s super easy.

I finished the look with a dusty rose lip and a healthy amount of highlight on my face. Today’s makeup was a bit of a struggle because I washed my brushes today (the worst) so I had to use last resort brushes. I applied bronzer with a fan brush. Enough said.

Have a great Sunday and thank you for reading.
