Sheer Minerals Spotlight: Serenity Eye Shadow
Serenity…Don’t you just love the sound of it. It emotes visions of light blue clear skies, softly lapping ocean waves, a light blue cotton sundress blowing in a light breeze and all things gentle, calm, soft and soothing. It is befitting our newest shade of Sheer Minerals eye shadow. It is a lovely color on blondes, brunettes and redheads and complimentary to all skin tones as well as all ages.
Some may look at it and think of the 70’s and polyester. While it is a pretty “groovy” color, I encourage those afraid of the hippie/disco/grandma stigma, to try it. It is crisp, clean and everything summer in one shade. Plus, if you felt like feathering your hair and throwing on your white polyester bell bottoms…there’s nothing wrong with a little throwback!
One of the two Pantone Color of the Year, Serenity is a must-have for your summer eye shadow collection.
A few techniques for different looks with Serenity:
Line with it: If you are a little intimidated by sweeping the color dramatically across your lids, pair Serenity Blue with a complimentary color, such as Ballerina Pink Eye Shadow, and simply use Serenity Blue as a liner. Wet your brush for more intense color and precision.
Go Bold: Wet your Eye Shadow Brush and go all out with a full sweep across your eyelid and a thick smudgy line on the bottom lash line.
Pair it with Azul and White Diamond Eye Shadows for an amazing pastel "smokey eye" using Serenity Blue on the lid, Azul on the crease and as a liner and White Diamond on the brow bone. This would look amazing on our blue-eyed Lemongrass ladies.
