Guest Post: Neon Eyes + Tutorial From Chelle of Makeup Your Mind

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Hello everyone! My name is Chelle and I’m here to share the Canadian Beauty Bloggers theme of the month – which happens to be neon. And neon, my friends, is a specialty of mine! I have a penchant for colourful eyeshadow, so I was really happy to be working with extremely vibrant colours this month!

If you like what you see today, come take a peek at my blog Makeup Your Mind. I yammer on about makeup with a side of fitness, and I’d love to connect with you!

Products used today… with an emphasis on Urban Decay’s Electric palette!
I knew I wanted to use my recently acquired Urban Decay Electric palette for this theme. I hadn’t had much of an opportunity to play with this palette so I was really happy to make it my main focus while working on this post. My goal was to use as many shades as I could without turning it into a muddy mess.

I love how it turned out! I was really hesitant about adding that reddish-orange shade on the lower lashline at the very end since it could’ve completely ruined the look. Instead, it adds a really unexpected boldness to the (already bright) look. Happy surprise!

I first applied NYX‘s Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk all over the lid, blended it in with my finger, then proceeded with the following shadows (all Urban Decay unless otherwise specified):
  1. Freak on the inner half of the lid.
  2. Gonzo on the outer half of the lid.
  3. Urban on the outer corner and along the outside of the lower lash line.
  4. Savage through the entire crease.
  5. Wet n Wild Brulee to highlight the brow bone.
  6. Thrash on the inner tear duct.
  7. Slowburn on the middle of the lower lash line.

I drew the inner and outer winged liner with Make Up For Ever‘s Ink Liner and then tightlined both upper and lower lash lines with Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacque. I applied a few coats of CoverGirl‘s Clump Crusher mascara to my lashes and popped on some House of Lashes Bombshell falsies.

Rest of the Face
  • Foundation: Boots No7 Instant Radiance in Cool Vanilla
  • Bronzer: Hard Candy Hula Hula
  • Blush: Hourglass Diffused Heat
  • Highlighter: MAC Soft and Gentle
  • Lips: I first applied Too Faced Melted Rainbow to see how it looked… but I wasn’t a huge fan. So I blotted most of it off and applied NYX‘s Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee which left me with a bit of a pink-tinged lip.

    I hope you enjoyed the explosion of colour! I had a lot of fun putting this together Stephanie and I hope you give some bright neons a shot this summer!


    I absolutely love this look, Chelle! Who else is inspired to create a colourful look now? I sure am! --Stephanie
