Two Steppin’

Lately I’ve been keeping my makeup pretty simple for the day to day and in the midst I have re-discovered an old favourite – the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. My current go to eye look has been to apply Bad to the Bronze all over the lid – with my finger – and then to blend it in around the edges. That’s it! It’s a super simple two step process that looks amazing, the metallic pigments in the tattoo create a sort of natural shadow in the crease and along the lashline that makes it look like you made much more of an effort than you actually did. 

How do you use your Maybelline Colour Tattoos?

    With difficulty would be my answer. I've only recently discovered these, to be honest, and though I do adore them, I feel like I haven't quite figured out the best way to wear them.

      They can be quite hit or miss. I really enjoy the bronze shade but i find the nudes difficult to use. I would like to try the MakeupForever version.

    I love back to bronze colour, it's such a easy colour to wear and it looks good on everyone ! I have been using it nearly everyday just dab a little on my lids and then blend it in with a fluffy brush.Zeynab xxThe Beautifully Disastrous

    I wasn't fussed on the colour tattoos, but I do like this shade. I just wish they didn't crease up as much!Annabel ♥Mascara & Maltesers

      I honestly find the creasing changes through the shades, i dont find this one to be too bad but others are awful.

    I love the Color Tattoos as an all-over-the-lid kind of look – they're so easy to work with and apply. While I like the bronze shade I adore the Pomegranate Punk one in the fall/winter as well – it's so a lovely color!xbeauty, style, life || bespectacled

    Gotta love multitasking makeup products for summer! I haven't tried these yet, but they do seem ultra handy :)

    I use my finger too! They are the ultimate lazy eye look.
