Eye Shadow Under the Eye

One of my favorite looks [fads] that comes and goes each year is having some color under the eye not just on the lid, crease and etc.


Here is Michelle Tratchenberg with a pine-ish green under her eye, which is my personal fav color to have.


For me in particular greens and teal work best, though I do like using a bronze now and then. Products that I have blogged about in the past of product you can use for this are the Almay Intense i-Color and the Tarte smolderEYES. Since they’re pencils both retractable or not, are easy to apply, however if you have a pressed shadow you really love a really thin brush works too! Just like when you do a smokey eye. I have a couple of pressed powders that I love to use, so there are a lot of ways to achieve this look. Loose powder is not as easy, because it can get a bit messy if you’re not use to it, but wet your brush a bit and it won’t take much product to achieve the look.


Example with teal smokey eye.



An example using purple.



Here is Kate Hudson with a bronze brown color by Almay.

    love this look too! do you do it during the day too or just for evenings out?

    • I do it in the day and evening. Some colors are better in the evening, but green is such a great color for both day and night. Purples and bronzes are best at night, in my opinion.

    This look is great. I usually use a bronze or gold shimmer powder under the eyes. Good for both day and night! For night, I also sometimes use a blue or emerald eyeliner to line under the eyes. I haven’t used eye shadow under the eye before though.

      That was supposed to read “I haven’t used coloured eye shadow under the eye before though.” 🙂
