Tutorial: Eye Makeup using 2 shades...

Posted Mar 22 2011 2:24pm

here's another eye makeup tutorial and this time, using just two shades of eyeshadows. I decided to go for a creamy beige (Wet & Wild Brulee) for base and a shimmery pink-peach (MAC Sunset B.) on the crease. I opted not to use a brown shade for the crease as i wanted to give my eyes a pop of color.

let's start:

1. Apply primer (Nyx HD eye base) on the entire lid

2. Using a flat shader brush (MAC 239), pat your base color on the entire lid

3. Using a medium-sized blending brush (MAC 222) apply your crease color starting from the outer part of the lid up on the crease , following your natural eye contour and stopping before you reach the inner 1/3 of the lid. No swiper motion on this part of the application.

4. To get rid of harsh lines, use the same blending brush or a slightly bigger one (MAC 224), and swipe back and forth on the crease. You can also blend the color upward by swiping the brush slightly higher than where you applied the crease color.

5. Apply your liquid eyeliner (preferably waterproof, to avoid panda eyes) starting from the inner corner going to the outer corner. You can wing your liner for a more dramatic look, like i always prefer mine :)

6. Curl your lashes (Shu Uemura lash curler) and apply two coats of mascara (Maybelline Stiletto mascara).

7. To get rid of any e/s fall outs or to give your undereye area a brighter look, apply a liquid highlighter (TBS Lightening Touche) and then pat with your fingertips. Set it with a loose powder (Skinfood Salmon dark circle powder) to keep it in place

8. Line your waterlines with a white eyeliner (Prestige) for an awake look. Smudge (MAC 214, 219) brown eyeshadow on the lower lash lines

and then here's the finished look:

you can use different shades of eyeshadows using this technique. it's easy and saves you (esp. me) a lot of time in doing eye makeup.

i hope you like it and til next tutorial!
