FOTD: Bright Eye Colours

Honestly, I hardly ever wear bright colours on my eyes. However, since I depotted my NARS Orgasm and my Urban Decay 15 Anniversary Palette into one Unii palette, I’ve been reaching for colours more. I mean, it’s also part of Project MAD, so why not use the colours for a bright and bold look on the blog? Here’s the palette for reference, taking from my Project MAD post.




Basically, I used all the brights like that teal, blue, pink and metallic purple. I also used black to darken the outer corners, but I might have layered on some other colours because I was going overboard and over excited. LOL! Here’s what I came up with. The main colour is the teal, dark blue on the outer corners and a little pop of pink on the inner corner. I added some purple on my bottom lash line but you can’t really see it in full action. For eye liner, I used a dark blue and just piled on the mascara.






The thing about having hooded eyes is that no matter how crazy the look is, once I open my eyes, you can only see half the crazy. HAHAHA! The blush I used is NARS Orgasm, and for the lips, because I didn’t know what to wear, I just put on the universal nude, Clinique Curviest Caramel.

I think this is by far the most colourful bright eye I’ve ever done. It’s kinda fun, but I took it off right after pictures were taken πŸ˜› I hope you liked this!

  • DUDE this is AWESOME hahahaha! I LOVE. You look so good in all these colours! But yeah, with hooded eyes I know-it’s hard to see, so I bring the party down to the lower lash line now :D:D
    You look AWESOME.

    • Lily

      Lower lash line as focus. Brilliant! I have to try that one day πŸ™‚

  • Loooooovveeeee eeettt!! You really rock glam glam dramatic eyes!! My lids dont really disappear so I mostly need to keep things toned way down to avoid looking like a SA for MAC or something.

    • Lily

      Lol lol at the MAC SA reference! Perhaps using bright colours as liners then. It’s subtle and pretty.

  • OOO pretty!!! I so have the same problem haha. Unless I bring the colors all the way to my brow bones, nobody is ever going to see all the crazy :p

    • Lily

      But maybe sometimes that’s a good thing. It’s not easy for us to go overboard πŸ™‚

  • Actually, I love it, Lily! I think it looks fantastic on you πŸ™‚ I rarely do super colorful eye make-up either, but I’m trying to venture out here and there.

    • Lily

      It really squeezed a lot of my lacking creative juices. Lol!

  • Love this look, Lily!
    The pop of color is really fresh and it doesn’t look too bright or anything with neutral lips. You should do this more often! πŸ˜‰

    • Lily

      Thanks Lena. I shall try! But I’m not too creative with colours though.

  • I love this! It’s so much fun and so pretty! Especially love that pink/purple at the inner corner. MORE.

    • Lily

      More? Lol. … I saw this look on Pinterest where they used teal all over the lids and some gold over the teal. Looked quite pretty actually.

  • This is FUN! “The thing about having hooded eyes is that no matter how crazy the look is, once I open my eyes, you can only see half the crazy.” – YAS! I second this emotion. I’ll be using hot green and neon yellow and think “Holy shizballs this looks INSANE” and then I open my [hooded] eye and it’s like “…” Where’d it all go? πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Lol and I like the hooded effect. It surprises people when you blink πŸ˜›

  • Mads

    Wow Lily you really pulled it off!! the colors you used reminds me of pretty peacock feathers.=) question: Did you use an eyeshadow primer for this? Love how the colors popped!

    • Lily

      Thank you Mads. I didn’t use an eye shadow primer at all. I find that with these shadows, patting the colour on the lids using fingers bring out the colours more (compared to applying it with a brush).

  • Icaria

    Haiiii Lily! Love this so much, pretty fun colors are always uplifting. Got the same problem here, hooded eyes, pooh, but hey, it’s still fun putting on eye shadow, at least we enjoy it while doing it! I really have to pick up Curviest Caramel! Dang it’s pretty! πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      You need Curviest Caramel πŸ™‚ And I actually like having hooded eyes. You can never look crazy. HAHAHA!

  • Lily

    Thank you Whitney πŸ™‚

  • Liz

    Well, you know I love this look. DELIVERY FACE. Make it so. :DDD

    • Lily

      Imagine the look on the doctor’s and nurses’ faces. Lol!

  • Haha yes hooded eyes can be a blessing and a curse.

    So many bright colours! I really like that pink in the inner corner. I want to put it all over my lid, I think that would look really pretty. Maybe a bit of purple in the crease? I need a bright eye look in my future.

    • Lily

      Pink on lids and purple on the crease sounds good. You have to do it!

  • WOW. You made this look so easy and effortless!!! I want to do this but always end up with such a mess that the shades all mesh into this shade that looks like where you wash your watercolors, you know what I mean? Huhu. And ugh, hooded eyes – tell me about it! Spend 30 minutes perfecting your eye makeup only to see nothing when you look straight. SIGH!

    • Lily

      LOL Thanks Shari. Sometimes I wish I had more lid space, but most of the time, I don’t mind having hooded eyes. Ours aren’t too bad, with visible double eye lids and all. Some are really hooded and folded. Those can be tricky!

  • Lilian

    Love this look Lily! You can definitley rock colour! πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thank you Lilian!
