Dare to Try a Bold Eye?

Thanks to L’Oreal for sponsoring my post about my favorite beauty looks, tips and tricks! Check out Makeup.com for beauty advice from the experts.

My name is Monique and sometimes I’m kind of a makeup wimp. I’ve always been a simple kind of girl, never stepping out my box. I’ve always stayed with neutral safe colors when it comes to eye shadow. Actually, I just started using eyeliner a few months ago. I know…I know. I’ve never claimed to be a make-up guru, just a girl experimenting.

With the holiday season upon us, I know I’m going to be going out a lot. So, I really want to try a bold eye. Now, a bold eye for me may be a simple eye for you. LOL. As soon as I got my hands on some L’Oreal Paris goodies, I knew they would be perfect for experimenting.

I dared to try out L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets HiP Color Truth Cream eyeliner in Eggplant, Double Extend Eye Illuminator eyeliner in Black Crystal, Studio Secrets eyeshadow in Landscape, and Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara in black.

I was really excited to try their HiP Color Truth Cream eyeliner (on the upper lid), the eggplant color is so pretty. And because it’s a cream, it went on really smooth and easily with the liner brush that’s included. I’m also in love with the Double Extend Eye Illuminator. One side is the black eyeliner, which I used on the outside bottom lid, and the crystal side on the inner side of the bottom lid. It adds a touch of brightness to my eye.

Like I said earlier, this is a bold daring look for me and I’m pretty happy with the outcome. Now I’m looking forward to my next bold look. Oh Oh…I might have unleashed a beauty monster! Maybe next time I’ll try brighter colors. What would your recommend?

When you dare to try a new look, what do you concentrate on? Eyes, lips, or hair?
