eye look #2 [sunset]


sunset eyes // this one reminds me of a sunset :) to see how i got this look, keep reading! my camera's video function isn't that great, so i don't know if i'll be able to do any video tutorials. maybe some photo tutorials?

---------

1 + i primed my eyes with stila prime pot in caramel, then applied victoria's secret minerals eyeshadow in luxe (a shimmery champagne color) as my base color -- that eyeshadow has been discontinued, sadly, but any shimmery champagne/taupe color will do. i used my finger to apply that shadow and patted it all over my eyelid.

2 + then i took MAC's 219 pencil brush and used it to apply my nyx single eyeshadow in atlantic on the outer corner of my eye, and also above my crease, bringing it inwards, towards the middle of my eyelid, but still staying above the crease. i kind of packed on the color a bit, because i knew it would get blended out a little later on.

3 + taking MAC's 217 blending brush and dipping it lightly into my purple color, (i forget where it's from, but nyx single eyeshadow in prune is a good one to use in place of it) i blended out the top edge of my blue color, bringing the purple a little towards the inner corner of my eye as well.

4 + i actually used a 1/8" artist's paintbrush to apply my MAC fluidline in blacktrack, but any eyeliner brush will work fine. i usually wing out my liner just a little to enhance the shape of my eye. for my lower lashline (which isn't really visible here), i used a nyx slide on pencil in jet black to line my waterline and lower lashline. i then took a sephora collection smudge brush #14 with some of that same purple eyeshadow on it, and smudged it along the lower lashline, on top of the black liner.

5 + finishing touches! i used bare escentuals' lash builder first -- it acts like a primer and helps volumnize your lashes. then i applied two thin coats of cover girl's lash blast fusion mascara in very black, followed by a final coat of maybelline's volum' express the falsies mascara in black drama. i usually don't curl my lashes for my everyday look, my lashes are stubborn so it takes longer than i'd like :)
