Hard Candy Black Shadow

Pretty

Being a teenager in the 90s meant that I was hopelessly obsessed with Hard Candy. Hopelessly. It wasn’t widely available in Canada, so we had to either hunt for it, or wait for friends and family to come back from American shopping adventures. Seventeen magazine totally fueled my obsession. Truthfully Seventeen magazine still fuels a lot of my obsessions but now I can get pretty much whatever I want via the internet. Hooray for technology, making it easier for me to procure very specific sparkly eyeshadow – that gets all over everything, but I love it anyway!

As you may have noticed, black and pink are my absolutely favorite colors, especially together. This look is def one of my most worn. I apply a serious base of the Hard Candy Baked Meteor Eyeshadow in Outerspace all over the lid and in the crease. Then I use a blending brush to pull it up closer to my brows, leaving plenty of room for the silvery MAC Pigment in Frozen White. I’m not going to lie, blending this is kind of a bitch, but totally worth it. Don’t pull the black too far up, adding more is a whole lot easier than taking it away. Pull down the pigment as far as you want because you’ll still see the black shadow through it. I also tend it pull the pigment up to my brows.

On my brows and as a liner (both top and bottom), I used the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner in black. That’s a mouthful of a name but it honestly feels like a fine marker. If you’ve ever been leery of liquid liners, this pen will give you the look you want without the fumbling. I use my everyday lashes with this look, the Quo 808 lashes and I use whatever mascara is on hand (could be Maybelline Lash Blast or Too Faced Pinpoint or whatever). Lips with this look is always BH Cosmetics Lip Liner in Candy with a sheer gloss on top.

If I didn’t feel the need to switch up my colors all the time, I’d rock this look every damn day!
