I have a secret weapon when it comes to creating an ‘everyday’ eye-shadow look, that lifts the eye PLUS it makes brows look amazing too!
I can’t wait to share it with you.
This beautiful palette is guaranteed to suit you and your eyes.
Just watch my below video to find out!
This helps take down redness and keeps your eyeshadow on for longer, whilst also helping to stop any eyeshadow creasing throughout the day!
Using the matte creamy colour from the palette (if you don’t have this palette, you need to seek a creamy shade that isn’t too white and is matte!)
Apply a matte creamy shade over your entire lid. This is your base colour that will help keep your eyeshadow stay on for longer and help stop any creasing.
Apply the creamy colour over the whole eyelid, right the way up to just underneath your eyebrow.
This technique makes eyes look more lifted and sexy!
Now using the mid-tone colour from the palette (or if you don’t have this palette, seek out a matte shadow about 2 – 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone).
Apply this mid-tone colour into the socket of your eyelid – close your eye and move the brush back and forward along the socket of your eyelid, just like a mini windscreen wiper. Easy!
This is a clever way of creating fuller looking lashes – without wearing mascara!
Use the same mid-tone colour again from step 2 (if you don’t have this palette, seek out a matte shadow about 2 – 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone).
Using the angled brush from the palette (if you don’t this palette use alternative angled brush OR use a Q-tip by twisting the end of the cotton between your fingers to create a tiny point). Now dampen your angled brush (or Q-tip!) by dipping it into water – this will make the shadow appear darker and more defined.
You don’t need to achieve a perfect line (Phew!) just dab the brush (or Q-tip) to dispense the colour along the upper lash line.
Now, delicately smudge the line you’ve just created with your pinky finger to create a ‘smokey’ looking line. Easy!
This will create light and make your brows look more lifted.
Using the creamy pearlescent shade from the palette (if you don’t have this palette, you need to find a shade that is creamy with iridescent particles that catch the light!).
Dab your eyeshadow sponge applicator from the palette, (or a Q-tip if you don’t have this palette), into the creamy pearlescent shade and apply it immediately under the arch of your brow and take it all the way to the tail end.
Now using your ring finger, feather and blend the pearly shade, so that it looks seamless and part of your skin.
This makes eyes look brighter and more awake!
Using the creamy pearlescent shade again (if you don’t have this palette, you need to find a shade that is creamy with iridescent particles that catch the light!).
Again with your eyeshadow sponge applicator, (or Q-tip) apply the creamy pearlescent shadow to the inner corner of your eye just around the tear duct area and blend with your pinkie finger so that the colour looks seamless.
Top Tip: If you really want to make them dazzle, dampen your sponge applicator, or Q-tip, first before dabbing onto the creamy pearlescent shade!
This frames your eyes and lifts the face!
Using the angled brush again, choose a shade most suited to your eyebrow – these palettes are designed to suit your individual brow colour!
If you don’t have this palette; my easy (and general) rule, that I use for selecting brow colour is:
With an angled brush; dab your chosen brow colour along the lower base of your brow. Dab very lightly and try using light, little feather strokes (it’s better to apply to little and build up coverage!).
This technique will help create more shape and structure to your brow and fills in any gaps or missing hairs!
Now, pick up some more of the brow colour and apply it into the body of the brow by dabbing the angled brush very softly into the hairs and mimicking the strokes of the brow hairs – this technique will thicken up the look of the brow.
If you already have thick brows then you may just want to apply to the base of the brow, as this is where we tend to have the most gaps.
This mascara makes lashes look flirty and full – never fake and clumpy!
For the top lashes:
Hold the wand horizontally and place it at the very base of your upper lashes and bounce the wand right at the roots whilst using a zig-zag motion! The trick here is to get most of the product on the base of your lashes and then sweep up, to coat the tips of your lashes!
For the bottom lashes:
Hold the wand horizontally and place it at the very base of your lower lashes and press and stamp the wand to create the look of fullness at the base of the lash. Next, switch to holding the wand vertically to coat the full length of the lower lashes.
The best thing about this eye and brow look is that it’ll go with EVERY lipstick you already own!
I’m wearing this ‘Vintage Rose’ lipstick – it’s one of my faves! Plus, it comes with a matching lip liner that helps make my lips look fuller!
I hope the tips I’ve shared with you in this video have helped you and I’d love to see your finished results on Facebook!
Say ‘GOODBYE’ complicated eye makeover and say ‘HELLO’ to your inner makeup artist!!!
