Glamour presents- Two Makeup Eye-deas For Mid-Summer Days

I don’t know about you, but by early August, I usually get more than a little lazy with my makeup routine. However, these lovely shots of Kerry Washington and Blake Lively at an event in the Hamptons have inspired me to whip out my neglected eyeshadow brush sometime very soon.

These two eye-shadow schemes are playful and not too involved–perfect for a mid-summer day. First, check out Kerry’s look. She had a sheer wash of green shadow swept across her top lids and then verrry gently haloed beneath her bottom lids. Black liner (applied inside the lash line, too) and mascara kept the look neat and tidy enough for day (versus smoked-out and sexy for night).

Of course, not everyone can, or wants to, wear green shadow–but I think basically anyone can pull off this next idea, as seen on Blake Lively. She rimmed her eyes all around in sheer, shimmery white, adding a little extra at the inner corners and adding some matte nude shadow below the brows to add definition. Lots and lots of mascara on top and bottom are the perfect finishing touch.
