A half dose of Sugarpill.
I love, love bright colors, but when I posted my Sugarpill reviews, I heard from a lot of you that you loved the colors but weren't exactly sure how you would wear them. The founder of Sugarpill, Amy Doan, aka Shrinkle, has such fun, vibrant, cute style, but not everyone who loves Sugarpill feels bold enough to wear their super saturated colors in a SHA-ZAM fashion (though I do love that).
I decided to showcase some more toned down, casual eye looks using Sugarpill's 4 Color Palette in Sweetheart. I "cut" the intensity of the colors by using Urban Decay Naked palette (I am using the first edition one with the double sided pencil) for base lid colors and highlights. I will specify which shades under each image. Bright colors, even for those who love them, can be intimidating. So dip your toes in first. Sugarpill's pressed eyeshadows are so pigmented and blendable that you can easily smooth them with a softer shade to draw back on the intensity but still add pop. They are easily buildable, so you can go as intense or subtle as you would like.
In this look below, I used Dollipop, a bright matte hot Barbie pink, to cover 2/3 of the lid, and Tako, a super matte white, to highlight the inner corners of the eyes. I used Urban Decay's Hustle for the crease and Sin to highlight the brown bone. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Whiskey to line the eyes. For mascara, I'm wearing L'Oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator in Black Quartz for Brown Eyes, which I will be reviewing soon.

Afterparty and MidoriHere is a look with Afterparty, a bright shimmering Smurf blue, and Midori, a sweet melon green with a pearly sheen. I used Virgin from Urban Decay mixed with Sugarpill's Tako to create a soft shimmering color to highlight from the crease to brown bone. Zero 24/7 liner was used to line the waterline and outer third of the lower lashline. I smudged Afterparty with Zero near the lower lash line. Mascara here is Make Up For Ever is Aqua Smoky Lash in Extra Black.
