The Two Tone eyeshadow technique sounds a bit like a band from the 1980’s, don’t you think? And even though I’ve been playing with eyeshadows professionally for almost 2 years now (Yes, that’s part of my job. It’s pretty awesome. Here’s 10 reasons you should join me!), I haven’t experimented much with this eyeshadow look for some reason. Thanks to this blog series, I can now say that this is a really fun eyeshadow look to play with!
You have so many options with this look, I can’t tell you the right or wrong colors to use. But I can tell you how to achieve this particular look that I’m wearing in these pictures and show you how easy it is!
Here are the colors I used for the Two Tone Eyeshadow Technique:
Now, the key to making the Two Tone eyeshadow technique look current and not like you’re a part of that 80’s band we talked about earlier, is to keep your pop of color just on your lower lashline.
Do you have your colors ready? Let’s dive in!
First, we will use your mid-tone shade across your crease. I’m using Leo and applying it in a Windshield Wiper motion and blending it out with the fluffy end of my I Shadow Everything Brush. Next, I applied Bright Eyes to my lid from my lashline to my crease and blended it into Leo. Lastly, I used Bubba in my outer corners and across my crease.
Now onto the fun parts! Using the L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner, I lined my upper lid. I tried to do a bit of a wing on my outer corners….let’s just say I still need a bit of practice on that. HA! Thank goodness lining my lower lashline with #33 was a lot easier. For that, I simply used the small end of my I Shadow Everything Brush and carried #33 from one side of my eye to the other. It’s a subtle pop of color, but I love how it turned out!
And because I was going on a date with my husband, I decided I needed a bit of shimmer near my eyes, too. Enter Georgia Powder Illuminator from Maskcara Beauty. I used the tip of my pinky finger and just tapped the Illuminator onto my inner corners. Finally, I applied my favorite mascara and I was ready to go out for sushi with my husband. I don’t know about you, but I live for date nights right now. It’s the one thing that gets me through the tough weeks of being a mom to 5 growing boys! My husband loved how this Two Tone Eyeshadow Technique look turned out. I’ll definitely be repeating it soon!
