If I had more than twenty minutes to do my makeup every morning, I would literally be in front of the mirror doing my eye makeup forever. I like to play up my eyes as much as possible, and I love finding which shades work the best for me.
Yesterday, I was playing around with my Naked palette and after a few minutes of playing around, I came up with the following look.
2. Apply a neutral shade across your whole lid. I used Naked (beige shade) from my Naked palette.
3. Apply a light brown shade to the outside 1/3 of your lid. I used Buck from my Naked palette.
4. Apply a dark brown glitter shade to the outer corner of your eye and your crease. I used Dark Horse from my Naked palette. Make sure to blend so that you aren’t left with a harsh dark line when you close your eyes.
5. Apply winged liquid black liner. I used my Prestige Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner. You can omit this step if you don’t feel comfortable with liquid liner or just don’t want to deal with liner (aka me 90 percent of the time). I am really bad with liquid liner. It never is that flawless line that I am expecting. Oh well – obsessing over something small like that is pointless.
6. Apply white eyeliner to your inner corner and lower waterline. Yeah, I am a little white eyeliner obsessed lately. The trick is to blend it, and it will do magical things.
7. Apply highlighter to inner and outer corners. Highlighter is such a simple step that makes all the difference. I used a white shade from my Wet N’ Wild Color Icon palette, which are surprisingly highly pigmented and inexpensive drugstore eyeshadows. Make sure to blend it out, otherwise it’s going to look too white and noticeable.
8. Curl lashes and apply mascara. I used my Rimmel Volume Flash the Max Bold Curves, a really good drugstore mascara that no one seems to talk about in the beauty community. Try it! It’s awesome.
