EOTD: Tan and Peach 2/8/12

I was inspired by a tutorial by Give Good Face on YouTube for Leopard Eyes and although I decided not to go ahead and add the leopard print, I love the colours that the make up artist applied. He started with an orange shadow across the lid and blended a coral shadow into the crease.

I started with a Barry M Dazzle Dust in Tan 39 across the lid, a gold loose shadow which has some orange tones for a more daytime look.

Note: my camera hasn't shown the peach crease as strongly as it was in real life - sadface

I then added a mixture of two peach matte shadows from the Sleek Oh So Special palette (3rd from top left and 1st on bottom left), which I never know how to use but they're actually great for blending out and using in the crease. I love the way that a touch of a peach/coral tone on the eye blends in with similar tones in blusher and lips to give a really subtle all over look. If you don't have any peach/coral/orange toned shadows you could use powder blusher instead, just make sure to test out on the back of your hand how pigmented it'll apply on the eyes.

To finish the look, I added a very small line of brown gel liner, some of the tan shadow underneath and mascara because I was going to work so I didn't want the eyes to look too dramatic. I kept the rest of the face pretty simple too: my usual light/medium foundation, natural brows, lots of bronzer and a peachy lipstick, but it's amazing how a bit of peach and orange tones on the eyes will really enhance a tan.
