Learn how to doll up your luscious lashes here!
Be a Cat
A survivor of the flood, this non-revolutionizing liner has been making appearances on Lauren Conrad and Dita Von Teese. Cat liner is known for curating any simple suit and is always pleasing, precious and pure. In a hurry? Draw on some simple liner and smack on some chap stick, this look perfects the imperfect.
For those of you who dismiss any sort talent towards eye liner, you can try out shadow in cat-form.
1. Start off my shadowing in the base of your eye as if you were doing eye liner.
2. Starting at the outer corner of your eye, draw a line going up until you hit the crease of your eye.
3. At the top of your newly drawn line, connect the line to your actual crease (as if you were drawing a half triangle) and shade in.
Gimme Yo' Baby Blues
Using color on your eyes has been thought of as a daunting task for many. But, don't you fret my little hippies,using colors have become simple, romantic and riveting. Try out some blues, greens, and purples for fall and winter. The trick is mixing loose shadows with palette colors. Pick two correlating shades o' color-a darker and a lighter color of the same gene pool.
1. I first primed my eyes- this is vital considering you will be using loose powder.
2. I took my lightest shade of blue and shaded in the inner corner of my eye.
3. I took the second darkest blue and shaded in the middle of my eye.
4. I then took my loose powder (you could use a darker color or just two colors) and finished the outer corner of my eye.
4. Bring the color underneath your eye for a smokey blue effect!
A Wondrous Winter land in White
You've seen models strutting the runway looking snow-globe esque. Tired? Have circles under you eyes? Wipe them away with white! Using white can liven up skin and brighten up eyes. It's the easiest trick in the book.
1. Start by adding a simple nude colored base coat all over your eye lid.
2. Take white and shade in the inner corner of your eye.
3. Take a brown or gold (our fav) and shade in the middle of your lid to the outer corner.
4. Take the white and shade the inner bottom lid of your eye to make your eyes POP.
Classic black smokey eyes will never be eradicated. Although, we do occasionally love a haughty dark eye, we find browns to much more flattering. Our secret weapon? GOLD! Golds, will bring out the sparkle in every eye color (trust me). Use a little dab of gold and let your eyes do the talkin'!
Get your brown smokey eye on!
1. Start by adding a gold base color on you bottom half of your lid.
2. Get a darker brown (metallic or matte) and shade in just the crease of your eye.
3. Add liner
4. Once you have liner your eyes, take a shadow brush and smudge in the liner to get a smokey look.
4. Follow with brown or gold underneath your eyes to create a smokey look.
By the standards notation, each eye color is destined to specific colors. Thus, the anti aberrant avers that brown eyes get purple, blue eyes use browns, and green eyes marry pinks and peaches. While an ounce of me believes this to be true,we think it is based off of preference, style and sass ( I would never wear pink on my eyes).
