Spring conversion: The vibrant smokey eye

spring+conversion+the+vibrant+smokey+eye_3356_800493769_0_0_7070091_300Winter is gone, and so is the dull, dreary landscape, the mass of black overcoats and (hopefully) the sight of your shovels and snowblowers. That being said, why not update your shadow to match the general lift in mood?

According to WTEN News, an ideal way to embrace the seasonal shift is to update your usual smokey eye to a vibrantly colored one. "Intense-colored eye shadows, including purples, pinks and yellows are what feel freshest this season," the news source reports.

Though the website recommends experimenting with colors by using green, wine or navy liners, those who are feeling a bit bolder can go all the way with any range of pastel or neon tints. Simply sweep the desired color over your lid and blend into the crease, taking care to shade just a little along your lower lash line. This will give you the same sexy, smudged look that a standard smokey eye does, but with a refreshing pop of color.

Of course, all of this putzing around with color requires a strong, sturdy base to work with. Applying a coat of blinc Eyeshadow Phase One to your lids prior to any and all experimentation will help make sure your shadow stays where you want it to.
