Do you need glitter glue? Nope. Do you need 10000 brushes? Nope. Do you NEED a steady hand? On this I shall say yes, time and patience is everything with the eye makeup presented above, ironically however NOT a lot of products were used as per usual to compare. To begin I lined my upper and lower brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Caramel! Once I had my desired arch I moved forth in gradually filling in each brow with tiny upward strokes to mimic actual brow hairs, sealing the deal included a full spoolieing through with one last defining motion for shapeliness! As an eyeshadow primer I opted in for Nyx’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to approach this eye makeup look as it was done blindly sans pre-planning, so I stuck with a safe and vibrancy ensured pencil. I personally prefer smudging it across both my lids straight from the stick then using a clean finger to blend the remaining product up towards my brow bones, and under my lower lash line! By this point your base should be set, the fun part is kicking in riiiighhhht about…NOW. Using a Mac Cosmetics 239 brush, notably a flat dense shader brush, I smudged into Buttercupcake eyeshadow by Sugarpill and moved along to patting it firmly against both my lids. I wouldn’t stress the amount of pigment received as this is simply a guide to where the crease hues will blend out into! Switching to my beloved Morphe E22 Pointed Blender and the shadow “Caffe Macchiato“, stunning peachy brown if I might say, I gently blended the color into the creasing of my eye socket with light and fluffy disbursing motions, this shall be the transitional shade, no added pigment or build-up needed. For added drama and definition I then took Stunner, and with my M433 Morphe Brush patted it onto the outer third of my lid making sure to drag it inwards to the inner third of my lid for the most gradient and blended effect– take your time with darker shades! Being I had a dense blending brush handy, I took the liberty of smudging Sugarpill’s Penelope pigment across my lower lash line; the blending brush creates a smokey effect as opposed to a precise applicator.
You have two choices- use your fingers, or use a synthetic fibered brush because honey, GLITTER AWAITS! As you loves know I’m more tactical than anything, so using a freshly cleaned ring finger I took Ingot’s #42 pigment and patted it across the inner third of my lids smudging lightly towards the center. With that same ring finger I then PATTED into Violet Voss’s Copperella and with those same firm strokes applied it to my entire lid area, this does not require a glitter glue as optimal flecks of glitter stick! Here is where some of you beauties MIGHT get tripped up, the eyeliner. All in all it tis’ a classic Egyptian cat wing, however it might be difficult for some to achieve! IF you’re having a problem PLEASE try out Mac’s Creme Eyeliner along with a Sephora #20 brush, this duo forms build-able liner coverage with sharp flicks, an assured perfection of liner moreover. ANYHOW, after the heavy black liner was completed on my part I moved along to coating my natural lashes with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and applying KoKo Amore falsies :)! I truly hope you beauties enjoyed, I myself am overjoyed with happiness on the amount of followers plus love I received last night between my mom and I in our mini tutorial for Instagram– cheers and good wishes.
