Eye Spy

Ricki Jill and Shelley inspired me to try something new and fun....eyeshadow looks that reflect pro-football teams! I'm not a huge football fan, but I like the concept of subtly showing your team spirit with office-appropriate makeup.

Since they were chatting Eye Spy while watching the Saints vs Dolphins, I thought I'd start the the New Orleans Saints.
Their colors? Black, White, Old Gold.

NYC White on my browbone and inner eye corner, blended/smudged under my inner eye
Mineral Basics Hard Candy over my lid into the crease
Sweet Libertine Element tapped very lightly in a layer over Hard Candy, to create a more shiny gold tone
NYC Dark Shadows as a liner on my upper lids, and very outer lower lid
Rimmel London's Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara on top and outer bottom lashes

I had thought Hard Candy was the perfect shade, as it's "old gold" in the container. But on my eyes it was just a lifeless grey. Element to the rescue! I love how layering eyeshadows can create a new effect!

What team should I wear next week???

A tip: If you've ever heard the phrase "warm" or "cool" to describe your skin tone, and wondered which you are, try this: Look at the veins visible at your inner elbow. Are they green, or blue? If green, you have warm-toned skin. If blue, you have cool-toned skin. If both (this does happen), you are neutral and can get away with wearing shades for both....you lucky duck!
