I have been asked several times to show how I am doing my eye makeup. There is nothing special about how I do it and I am not a makeup pro...and no matter which color combo I use I usually do the same steps and use the same kind of brushes lol.
I generally use the darkest shade in my crease and on the outer 1/3 of my upper lids but not blended out much, I first apply a rather solid stripe into my crease which gets softer by adding and layering the other shades later on.
I think this fits my rather small and close-set eyes best and is the most flattering look for me ( I also like just using one medium color on my lids and blended out onto my eye socket and then highlighter on the rest of my lid up to my brows).
I decided on a fresh purple combo today using Lunasol´s Sheer Contrast Eyes in Lavender Coral. I used all colors as I always do...I don´t like to mix and match different palettes and I always use all colors from a palette unless it exceeds 5 colors.
I apply my makeup in this order:
Eye concealer - a bit of powder around the eyes - e/s primer - eyeshadows - eyeliner - face makeup (base, foundation, powder) - eyebrows - mascara base and mascara - lips (liner and gloss/lipstick) - cheeks - highlighter
My scary moisturized naked eye:
Using Coffret D´or Moist Coat f (or any eye concealer)
Using a light layer of face powder to set the brightener
Primed with P & J eyeshadow primer
Applying the darkest purple shade with the deep crease definer from Sasa, along my crease and on the outer corner, also along lower lid (2/3). The brush can be seen on the pic at the left side, pic posted at the bottom of this post
Patting the shiny lavender color on with the rounded thick brush from Clinique (middle on the pic)
Applying a sheer layer of the pink shade above the deeper purple on my eye socket
Using the sparkly yellow golden shade just below my brows blending it with the flesh pink shade. I applied the pink and yellow shades with my Laneige brush (far right on pic)
Lining my eye with the Dolly Wink liner
This is how I am doing my inner rims: I just place my Kate Square Cut Liner gently on my inner rims, close my eyes and then pull the liner carefully from one side to the other for a few times. I never hurt or irritated my eyes before but I find the shape of the Kate liner works best, don´t do this with a pointy pencil not to hurt your eyes and anyway, do the whole thing at your own risk!
Applying a layer of mascara primer from Majolica Majorca.
Curling my lashes. I know this is an absolute no-no (to use the mascara base and then curl the lashes) and any makeup artist would flame me now but this works best for me as the curl stays and I never had a problem with lashes breaking off and I´ve been doing this for over 6 years now!
Adding mascara from Esprique Precious. I use 2 coats of mascara and comb in between to avoid clumps. It´s important to get the brush as close to the lash roots as possible and apply mascara on the back and front of the lashes.
Voilá! Finished eye just as you are used to seeing on my blog hehe:
