December 30, 2014
You can guarantee a kiss at midnight with these eye makeup looks offered by Cassandra Ferguson, our new Beauty contributor for the blog. She offers tips and tricks for any kind of makeup needs and will be sharing her expertise every Monday.
LOOK 1– (Blue Smokey Eye)
Step 1– Prime the eyelids. For this look I used Lorac Eyelid Primer.
Step 2– In the crease, blend a matte brown shadow. I used MAC “soft brown”
Step 3– On the lid and lower lashline, pat on a shimmery navy color. I used the Laura Geller 20 Shades of Baked palette. The shade was called “Midnight”
Step 4– In the inner corner of the eye brush on a shimmery white shadow. I used the shade “Pearl” from that same Laura Geller Palette.
Step 5– Apply scotch tape to your face. Sounds weird, but it creates a really nice line for eyeliner and shadow! Place it underneath your lower lash line, following up to the area where your eyebrow ends.
Step 6- Apply matte black shadow or eyeliner along the upper and lower lash line. I extend the shadow past my lash line to create a cat eye look. For this look, I only put the shadow halfway in on my lower lashes.
Step 7- Remove tape and use makeup remover to erase any shadow that fell underneath the eye.
Step 8– Apply glitter to the center of the eyelid. For this look I used Urban Decay Heavy Metal liquid glitter.
Step 9– Apply lashes. I used drugstore lashes. Ardell “120 Demi”
Step 10– Put mascara on lower lashes. I use L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara.
Step 11– Your eye makeup is finished! Follow up with foundation & lips! Nude lips would look great with this look.
LOOK 2– (Light Glittery Cat Eye)
Step 1– Place white eye shadow on the lid. I used the Laura Geller 20 Shades of Baked palette shade “Pearl”
Step 2– In the crease, blend a light matte brown shadow. I used MAC “soft brown”
Step 3– On the brow bone, blend a neutral shadow the color of your skin. It can be matte or shimmery. I used a touch of “opal” from the Laura Geller palette.
Step 4- Place tape beneath the lower lash line and guide it to the end of your eye brow. Blend black matte shadow along the lash line and a bit on the outer lower lash line.
Step 5– Remove tape and use makeup remover to pick up any eye shadow that fell in the under eye area.
Step 6- Conceal under eye circles. After you do your eye makeup you will finish your face makeup.
Step 8– Apply lashes and mascara
Step 9- Your eye makeup is complete! Finish with face makeup and lips! Any shade of lipstick would look great with this eye since it is pretty neutral
Have a safe and happy New Year!!!!!
