Hey guys!! So, I have been wearing this eye look (minus the lashes) to the last few parties I've gone to. I really like how easy and simple this is to do even though the impact is quite intense. Keep reading for directions on how to recreate this simple eye look.
- NYX Super Skinny Marker
- MAC's Carbon Eyeshadow
- Urban Decay's Naked Eyeshadow
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Covergirl Lashblast Volume Waterproof Mascara
Step 1: Apply your primer and blend it on your lid. Concentrate the product near your lash line though!
Step 2: Pack a nude eyeshadow onto your lid and brow bone. I used Urban Decay's "Naked" Eyeshadow all over. It will provide a nice base for the liquid liner to stick too.
Step 3: Now take your NYX Super Skinny Marker! I have literally been using this everyday. I am a die hard gel liner lover, but this liquid liner pen is so easy and convenient that I use this more. Anyways, create an extremely dramatic wing. Thicken it at the end. This will open up your eyes. One aspect of this look is that nothing is on your lower eye area. I wanted to create really opened up cat eyes. I cannot stand when people just put a ton of eyeliner on their waterline and call it "makeup." I do not ever wear black eyeliner on my waterline alone because it closes up my eyes. By only lining the upper lash line, it makes my eyes appear more open and larger.
Step 4: Set the eyeliner with a matte black eyeshadow. Feel free to smoke it out a bit. This NYX eyeliner will fade if you do not set it so make sure to do that!
Step 5: Curl your lashes and apply a HEAVY coat of mascara! I am obsessed with this mascara. It is the only mascara that holds my curl. The non-waterproof version is NOTHING compared to this one.
Step 6: Apply your accent lashes. Click HERE to view my false eyelashes tutorial :)
I hope you enjoyed this! It may seem like a lot but honestly when I do my eyes like this is takes about 5 minutes. Try this look out and tell me how it works out for you :)
