Mismatch Perfection by TheMilaEffect

Our first look comes from TheMilaEffect. Mila created a unique mismatched eye makeup look using blue eyeshadow on one eye and red eyeshadow on the other. Keeping it simple with a nude lip to finish off the look, we love the simplicity matched with a good twist for a special take on a Memorial Day Weekend look. We’ve also spotted Mila’s use of a cut crease to add in the white on the main eyelid area before blending into the crease.

To get a clean cut crease look, you’ll first need to set your crease using your blue or red eyeshadow. Apply concealer or foundation to cut the crease and define the line. Then set and apply your main lid shadow.

To get Mila’s look, try using River or Bluebell from our range of blue eyeshadows.

Fully blended by Aimee K

Aimee’s skillful blending is exactly why we love her take on a Memorial Day eye makeup look. The crisp angled shape and the highlight on the brow bone are small techniques for big glamour pay off. We recommend using Rain for that shimmer finish. For a highlighter, we often use Kream for that extra glow.

Our best shade in the red family is a matte eyeshadow in the shade Cinnabar which is a cool orange based red for a bright addition to your collection. The orange undertone is typically one of our go-to shades for the Autumn period. It’s not a true red eyeshadow but we can definitely see it being used in a red, white, and blue look for your Memorial Day Weekend 2021 makeup look.

We’ll soon be updating our shade collection for a wider range and hope to share them with you soon.

You can buy any of the shades mentioned as singles or create your own custom palette today. We’d love to see your custom palettes and you can find some of our pre-made eyeshadow palettes as inspiration. Remember to tag us on social media when you make your palette!
