Blake Lively has become the darling of fashion blogs and best-dressed lists around the country, but at a recent social occasion she took a big risk with her eye makeup. Lively wore a creamsicle-colored dress to the recent 2011 Teen Choice Awards and paired her outfit with her eyeshadow.
The trick to combining an eye shadow with your dress is to wear a shade that is slightly lighter than your dress. Lively gave herself a warm glow by using a light orange hue that she jazzed up with a bit of shimmer.
Lively paired her eye makeup look with a healthy application of mascara and a soft pink lip color. When you're wearing a bright hue like orange, it's best to keep your cosmetics toned down to let your outfit be the star.
If you're looking to give your eyes some added definition, avoid the painted-on cosmetics and try blinc Eyeliner. This product will surround your eyes with a water-resistant layer of color that won't smudge, flake or run throughout the day. It can be taken off at the end of the day without harsh makeup remover, making it ideal for ladies with sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
