Today I've got a Pret-A-Papier look to share with you. This is my first attempt using Coral Crepe Paint Pot. First of all, I am happy to say that I am very pleased with this purchase. I think it's gorgeous with brown eyes, and I bet it's great with blue ones too! Any color eyes would be pretty with this though! I think it is a very versatile color. I could see me pulling this back out in Autumn and using it with a chocolate brown and hunter green in the crease. Okay that was a makeup ramble, but yet a great idea for another tutorial! :) Anyway, here is the look. I wanted to keep it low key and let the paint pot shine through!
Okay, so it's just a wash of coral(a salmon coral, not a pink-ish coral in my opinion) blended up to a super pale powdery yellow highlight. Here I used an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow in Vanilla. I got it in a palette and it is one of my favorite highlighters. It blends like a dream and perks up the eyes. It's really good for when I haven't gotten much sleep.This is the color I'm really trying to find a dupe for in MAC. I would really like to know how it compares to MAC Chamomile eyeshadow. It's a Satin finish though while the EA one is a matte.
