I love a good colourful look to celebrate summer. Today I was inspired by Lisa Eldridge’s new video Beach Brights to take my bright eyeshadows for a spin. At first I thought I’d just do a bright eyeliner, but as you can see, I kinda went colour crazy. It’s the first time I’m trying a teal and purple combo, and I think it works well. I also wanted to show off Chanel Rouge Coco in Jersey Rose (thanks H. of 25fLONDON!), which is my go-to lipstick this summer. Enjoy the look!

Get the Look
For the eyes, build up the colour by patting on a bright teal (Sleek Chaos i-Divine Palette) all over the lid and on the lower lash line. Blend the colour into the crease, then apply a medium brown on the crease. Deepen the outer crease by adding a dark brown. On the outer lid, blend in a vibrant purple (Auraline Bright Violet) and the outer third of the lower lash line. Highlight the brow bone and inner corners with a light peach (MAC Arena).
Line the upper lash line with a black gel liner (MAC Blacktrack), and the waterlines with a black pencil liner (Giorgio Armani waterproof). Apply your favourite mascara (CoverGirl Lash Blast).
For the cheeks, lightly bronze all over the high points of the face with a peachy pink bronzer (Dior Aurora). Then, on the apples of the cheeks, apply a light dusting of a shimmery peachy pink blush (NARS Deep Throat).
For the lips, apply a warm rosy pink lipstick (Chanel Jersey Rose). Add a shimmery lip gloss on top (Chanel Maline).
