Pastel Peach Paradisco eyes

It's such a lovely day in Melbourne today that I thought that a peachy/coral look would be the perfect thing to wear. I decided to use MAC Paradisco eyeshadow, which is a lovely coral colour and which I admit I bought purely based on the name :D. I love the potential of this eye shadow but the intensity you see in the pan is not what you get when you apply this colour and I always find myself having to pack this on like crazy!

Since pastels are making a big come back this season I thought I'd go for a pastel type peach look and layered Paradisco over Soft Ochre paint pot but any light beige or white base will have a similar effect. I combined it with MAC Coppering eyeshadow in the outer v and warmed up the crease using some MAC Rule eyeshadow. I finished it off by highlighting with MAC Solar White eyeshadow around the tear duct and Milani Liquif'Eye pencil in gold on the waterline.

This is such a simple but feminine spring/summer look and it would look lovely with bronzed cheeks, illuminated skin and glossy lips. Hope you like the look!

  5. I really love that gold on the waterline. I might try that tonight!

  6. Aseya: I love gold on the waterline but I can't find one that doesn't rub off! The Milani one I used today was gone after like 30 minutes :( Let me know if you find one that's good on the waterline!

  7. I looooove this look! I have paradisco and haven't used it in a while but after reading your post, I'm inspired to use it again. =)

  8. Ria: I always neglect Paradisco but it's such a pretty shade! Glad I inspired you to give it another go :)
