L.A. COLORS “Brush With Fame” Challenge #2: Eye Spy

Earlier this week I announced I was one of the 5 finalists in Life & Style, In Touch and L.A. COLORS “Brush with Fame” competition. Every week I’ll be sent different challenges — the 1st was “Brush Up” where I featured my flower power nail art tutorial, and I just got my 2nd challenge: “Eye Spy!”

For this challenge I’m going to show you how I lash out.  I’m a smokey eye, black liner girl — cat eye, reverse cat-eye, thick/thin black eyeliner line — you will not see me leave the house without something black in my waterline. And love them or not, no one rocks an eye like Kim Kardashian, Kristen Stewart, RiRi and Katy Perry (lets be honest, we all love Katy Perry) — or at least on a consistent basis (we’ve seen some pretty amazing looks from countless other stars). And Dita Von Teese and Lauren Conrad are the queens of the cat eye.

While these are timeless looks the trend of right now that I have been excited about is blue liner/shadow! It’s a welcomed addition to my black liner and has been everywhere from the runway to celebrities and seen on everyone from Lupita Nyong’o, Jessica Biel, Jennifer Hudson, Eve, to January Jones — which just shows you the range of skintones it looks amazing on!

So here’s how I lash out and how you can too! For a beginner look get inspired by Jessica Biel — see how great that pop of blue makes such a pretty statement without being over the top? At a very simplistic level you could create her look with  L.A. COLORS Grafix Eyeliner in Black on the top lid and then smudge the green aqua blue eyeshadow shade with one of the blue shades from their 16 Color Eye Shadow Haute Palette to create that pretty under eye look. If you really want it to pop, use the their Jumbo Eye Pencils in shade See Shells (white) under your eyes and then put the green aqua blue shade on top.

I did a different variation inspired by her look with a bit more cobalt blue effect. Here’s how to recreate my eyes:
