Day 25. Seaside

A look in the shades of sea colors, all realized with mineral eyeshadow from the Italian brand Neve Cosmetics.

- Neve Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Abisso, Costa Smeralda and Zen
- Neve Cosmetics Bronzing/Contouring powder Ombraluce Light
- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Binge
- Maybelline Feather Look Volum Express Mascara

On my upper lid I applied Costa Smeralda, a satin green-blue shades, blending it into the crease, where I started with Zen, a matte light brown shade. I lined my lashline with UD Binge, a navy blue eye pencil.
On my lower lid I used Abisso, a brught blue eyeshadow. I lightly dusted my inner corner using Ombraluce Light, the light part of a bronzing/contouring duo.
I curled my lashes and applied a good coat of mascara.

A note: I took these pictures about two hours after applying my make up. As you can see Costa Smeralda on the upper lid is already faded: it only got worse during the day, and around the eighth hour  of wear it was creased horribly. The other shades only feathered a bit.
I don't think I ever had this problem with this shade, which is normally very vibrant, but usually I apply it over UD Primer Potion, here I used my Mac Painterly Paint Pot as a base, which may not be the perfect base for these eyeshadows.
I'll try to swatch the Neve Cosmetics loose powder eyeshadows soon so you can actually see the real colors!
