Hello my lovelies!

 

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet, as I don’t have a lot to say at this moment, other than I LOVE THE WAY THIS CAME OUT.

It isn’t the most perfect cut crease, but I feel like I’m finally starting to get the hang of this business. Bonus, it was actually pretty simple. Time consuming, but simple.

 

Additionally, I would love to know your opinions on my eye closeup photos. I did a poll on Instagram, but I also want to know what the rest of you think. I have the original, single eye closeup that I usually post, and a second side profile of the eye look. Let me know which one you guys prefer, as I am more than happy to change things up!

Let’s get started:


 

The eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the eyes with a powder or shadow that best matches your skin tone.
  2. Define the crease with a neutral brown shadow of your choice. This will help the turquoise shadow go down easier, making it less choppy.
  3. Start out with a small amount of a dark turquoise shadow, blending from outer to inner corner. Slowly build up the intensity as you go.
  4. Take some concealer on a flat brush and carve the lid out, all the way up to the crease in a way that flatters your eye shape best. Flick the concealer out on the end to mirror the upturned shape of the turquoise shadow.
  5. Pack a bright yellow shade on top of the concealer, layering for opacity if you need to. Follow the flick at the outer corner as well.

Lower lashline:

  1. With the same brown shadow from earlier, run this across the entire lower lashline, blending downward to lay down a base once again for the turquoise.
  2. Pack the turqoise shadow across the lower lashline, then blend downward for a hazy, smoky effect. If this does not suit your eyes, you can keep the shadow tighter to the lashline.

Other:

  1. Line the lid with black liner, mirroring the winged corner. This should resemble a waterfall effect.
  2. Line the waterline with a dark turquoise liner, or a black liner.
  3. Highlight the tear duct with a matte white shadow. Because this is an all matte look, we want to stay away from any shimmer highlights.
  4. Curl and coat your lashes with mascara. Apply falsies for extra drama.

 

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a terrific Tuesday!
