Sometimes we all want to show the world a second side of our personality, different from the one that most people know, our alter ego that is not afraid to try new things, to prove to everyone that you can vamp it up just as well as anyone else when you put your mind to it.
When high style is really not your thing, its best to take it slow, and make an adjustment to one thing at a time. Pick your favorite feature and go wild!
Tone likes to play it safe, but today she is going to show the world what her beautiful, big green eyes are made of!
We kick things off by first cleansing and moisturizing the skin. This step helps protect the skin and allows the makeup to glide on smoothly and evenly for a fresh look and feel.
Next, apply an eye primer or concealer to the entire lid and blend. This step is key to maximize the impact of the shadow tones.
Using a crease brush, apply a matte shadow, 3 4 shades deeper than your skin tone, to the crease, working your way from the inner to the outer corner. This step helps to define the shape of the eye. Using the deeper tone is key, since we are going for a dynamic effect.
Using a pencil similar in tone to the shadow applied to the crease, color in the entire top lid and blend. Using the same pencil, line both the top lid and the bottom lid below the lash line.
Using teal (blue/green) eyeliner, rim the entire eye. Use the same pencil to color the top lid. Apply this pencil tone directly over the deeper tone and blend. When two contrasting colors meet, the result is electrifying! Use a blending brush to combine the tones together.
There is nothing that turns the eyes out of control like lashes. You dont have to go wild. By adding just a small amount on the outer corners you will complete this virtual eye seduction! Cut a full strip of lashes in half, or add a few individual lash flares using tweezers and lash adhesive.
Add a thin, black line to the top lid directly onto the lash line. This will help balance out the effect of the lashes.
Use the same black liner to rim the outer corners of each eye.
To keep the entire face in balance, and to avoid looking overdone, allow the lips to stay sheer and nude with a touch of gloss or lip moisturizer.
