Guest post: Natalie of Ivory Avenue on Fun Eye Makeup for Summer

Hi everyone! My name is Natalie, and I blog over at Ivory Avenue. Ivory Avenue is a wild collection of beauty, fashion and lifestyle – though this is a rough definition. I really blog about whatever tickles my fancy. I love discussing current trends, reviewing products and finding new designers and shops.
I'll be taking over Jordana's blog for the day as part of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers monthly guest posting. This month, the theme is transitioning to warm weather - so I'll be sharing with you three fun (and colourful!) eye makeup ideas for summer.
I'm someone who tends to go for neutral shades, so these were quite outside my comfort zone. However, I couldn't help but love every look!

So, let's start with the almay shadow softies, shall we? These poor shadow softies have been given such a hard time - but I really love them. They're great for a sheer wash of colour, and their lightness is perfect for hot summer days. I used two shades to achieve this look: Cashmere and Honeydew. I applied Cashmere (a matte pale yellow) all over my lid, followed by Honeydew (a shimmery pistachio) in the crease. It's light, and I love it.

Next up, let's talk about the Lise Watier Solo Eyeshadow in Bleu Curaçao. Isn't that blue incredible? You wouldn't believe how creamy it is too - even though it is a powder eyeshadow. The colour is just incredible. With a color this intense, you don't really need to worry about adding more than one shade. I applied the solo eyeshadow all over my lid and ta-da! I'm done.

Finally, we have the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Cobalt. I'll be honest, I'm not entirely sure why I bought this. I don't tend to go for crazy colours, as I said. Nonetheless, I was impressed with this eyeliner. I mean, look at that colour! Pretty gorgeous, right? It was only my second time using this, and it felt like the tip was already drying out, which is a little disconcerting. I also managed to get some in my eyes which was quite painful.
