Bright Eyes Using Wet n Wild

Hi everyone!
Hope you're having a good Monday so far! I wanted to share this look that I did over the weekend. I LOVE my neutrals, and even when I use colors, I try to use them in a way that I see as "wearable". Meaning, a look that I'd feel comfortable leaving the house with. I was happy with the way this turned out and also how it seemed to make my eye color pop. 
For this look I used one of the new Wet n Wild trios and a couple of other great drugstore shadows. If you want to see swatches of all of the shadows from the limited edition Wet n Wild Pop Art collection, click here. It's really interesting to see how the powder shadows can change color when overlapped and blended. As the yellow and turquoise come together, the look takes on more of a greenish tone.
Products used...
  • Sigma Eyeshadow Base in Persuade (all over the lid/crease)
  • Wet n Wild Trio in A Regular at the Factory (Yellow around the inner corner and sheered out toward the center of the lid. Turquoise on the outer part of the lid and outer crease. Blended out the border of the turquoise with a very sheer amount of orange. Also smudged turquoise on the lower lashline.)
  • NYX Single in Rock (blended this black shade lightly in the outer V and on the outer part of the lower lashline)
  • Milani Single in French Vanilla (used as a highlight under the brow)
  • L'oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black (used to tightline the upper inner rim and on lower waterline)
  • Milani Color Play Felt Tip Liquid Pen in Black Line (upper lashline)
  • L'oreal Voluminous Full Definition Mascara (upper lashes)
  • Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara- not pictured (lower lashes)


Hope you enjoy this look that's slightly different from my norm! If you'd like to see looks using any of the other Wet n Wild trios, let me know. As with all Wet n Wild shadows, there's a lot of color payoff and a little goes a long way! I really think that if you have a good black and a light highlight color to add to those colorful trios, you can create a whole eye look. I always feel like bright colors are more wearable when I add a little depth to the crease along with some black liner. 

Daily Nuggets...
  • Watched "A Time to Kill" with Tyler last night... I think I've only seen bits & pieces of that movie before, but got in on it from the beginning when it was on TNT- what a movie!!! I was in tears multiple times. That has to be one of Matthew McConaughey's best performances.
  • Wearing a muscle tee from Forever 21 that says "meow" on it.
  • I'm so excited about Wednesday's blog post on the Ladies Home Journal Gloss Daily site!! It's gonna be a fun one! Just wrote it this morning.
  • Cleaned out my big storage closet in the bathroom yesterday that holds all of my hair tools, hair products, body stuff, etc... that felt good!
  • New video coming this evening- my second tutorial in the makeup starter kit series! :)

  5. I love that you create a wearable look out of strong colours . I am kinda afraid of colour because I don't want to mess up so I'm glad I can find an inspiration in your work.

  12. I love how this turned out, Emily! You have such a knack for taking colors that I would just kinda be staring at, wondering what to do with, and you make a beautiful look out of them!
    I got the red/black/white trio "Three's A Party" yesterday, and would love an idea on how to use it!!

  13. Beautiful. I wasn't sure how you were going to blend all those colors, but you did a beautiful job. Looks natural too. Isn't the L'oreal eyeliner the best? Love the kajal formula.

  17. Beautiful and unique color combo. Looks awesome! I like the pop of orange above the blue.

  18. This looks is amazing! I have to admit, as a neutrals lover, I have always enjoyed your natural and neutral smokey eye looks, but this has got me thinking, "man, maybe I DO need more color in my makeup collection!". Never in my wildest dreams would I ever pair yellow, orange, and turquoise in an eye look but you pair them b-e-a-utifully, honey! Love! Love! Love! *runs out and buys palette*

  19. Wow these colours really compliment your eye colour! So pretty!

  22. Beautiful Emily! I bought two of the limited edition palettes, and one I tried isn't as good as this one you used!

  23. This is great! I really appreciate you working outside of your comfort zone for this look. Sometimes seeing someone we look up to venture out to try something out of the box is all it takes for us to muster up the courage to try it ourselves. Beautiful work!

    1. Hi Emily! I took a look at these palettes in my local Walgreen's and I did not care for the color combinations FOR ME.Oranges, yellows, reds and bright blueshave looked clownish on me in the past with my blonde hair and green eyes..I think you did a beautiful job!! Your technique is flawless and, what can I say? You have done it again!

  25. Gorgeous!!! I absolutely LOVE Wet N Wild eye shadow trios. I also really liked how you overlapped the colors to make something completely different really great job.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Very pretty. Love how you made this wearable. I was lucky enough to grab all the pop art palettes at walgreens (tagged you in my ig photo regarding a review & you replied!) But I had a hard time making a look out of it. Love this, got some inspiration. Would love to see more. Thank you for all your hard work Emily! See you Thurs on beautyvlogcast!

  28. I didn't think there would be a way to wear these extremely colorful palettes in a way that wouldn't scream "2-year-old-playing-with-mom's-makeup" but you somehow managed to not only pull it off, but make it look actually wearable and GORGEOUS. I don't know how you do it, but I like it! And I'm inspired :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love this! I would LOVE to see all of the palettes!!!

  42. I love this look! Never thought Wet n' Wild would have such great colors!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I see these palettes everyday at work [I work at Rite Aid] & I'm always like 'ugh, these colors are awful. No one could ever pull that off.' WAY TO PROVE ME WRONG. Now I want to buy a couple - except I'm skeptical about my ability to pull off this look as well as you do! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love this look! I was able to find and purchase all 6 trios in this collection, however I am a little stumped on what to do with them. This is a nice idea to start with but would love to see what you could come up with using the other 5.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I bought three of those LE Trios and I love them, but I feel a little out of my element trying to put a look together. I really liked this one, can you do more!?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Gorgeous. I used the new jordana eyeshadow pencil continuous almond (the flesh tone one) and the orange reaaaally popped!! It didn't crease like nyx's milk does!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I didn't want this particular palette before but now I do XD please do more looks with these trios!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Beautiful! I applied the colors this way about 2days ago & it turned out great!

  49. Hey Emily. I have been a fan of yours for many years. My entire makeup collection is due in large part because you and your Emily Awards.
    This is an amazing look. I was super skeptical about what to do with this palatte but this look gave me inspiration to try something. I wore this look the other day and it was total hit! Thanks again!
