Kristen shares this gorgeous bright teal eye with us!
She tells us how she did it:
I applied NW20 concealer on my lid using Bobbi Brown’s concealer brush. It primes my eye and reduces redness. I used Sonia Kashuk’s concealer brush to apply Blue Peep Fluidline all over my lid and into my crease. I applied Big T eyeshadow to the outer corner of my lids using Bobbi Brown’s Eye Smudge brush. Using a mini Bobbi Brown eyeshadow brush, I put Nylon eyeshadow under my brow and over my crease to lighten the color. I lined my top lashline with Blacktrack Fluidline and applied a few coats of BlackSplash mascara to my lashes.

I checked out Bobbi Brown’s Pink Raspberry Collection, and I have to say, the palette she put together for the launch is quite nice. I played with the Pink Raspberry Face Palette; Pink Raspberry and Wild Raspberry lip crayons; and Black Raspberry lip sheer.
Pink Raspberry Face Palette is a palette meant for more subdued looks, because Navajo is a light white-gold shadow with soft shimmer, while Fog is a deeper, smoky charcoal-gray with light shimmer as well. They both feel more semi-matte to me than anything; they’re definitely not frosty or over-the-top, so they’re perfect for just about anyone. The Pink Raspberry blush is a bright medium pink that will need a light hand when applying it, because it is easy to go overboard. I adore both of the lip sheers for their soft, pink-berry hues; knowing that they are meant to be sheer, I was not disappointing with their opacity. I found that Raspberry was a deeper berry with pink undertones whereas Blue Raspberry was definitely a cooler, sheer pink.
Black Raspberry lip sheer is a berry-brown with more color than the lip sheers included in the palette, which makes it a nice alternative to those with more pigmented lips. Both Pink Raspberry (warm pink with berry undertones) and Wild Raspberry (gorgeous brighter red-berry) lip crayons felt so glossy and smooth when applied. They’re kind of like jumbo lip pencils, which means they’re great as liners, glosses, or lipsticks–my kind of tool!
