Kelly and I came up with this brilliant idea that we could do some makeup tutorials with still shots rather than video.
You get to decide which you like better, because we have a video of this makeup too.
So anyway, welcome to Eye Makeup 1 ooh!1!
We were shooting Lea in a Fellini-esque look. The hair was high and loose, a hybrid of a Bardot look. The eyes were simple, but well defined. Easy to duplicate, easy to wear. You’ll feel fabulous in this one
I just press it on with my finger.
Next up, use an oval shadow brush, and Nars Nepal shadow.
Now take an angle blender brush and Nars shadow in Barbuda.
Press the longer end of the brush into your crease, and move side to side across your crease. The shorter end of the brush is now creating a new crease for you, perfect for your eye shape.
To stop them staining the under eye area and making it look dirty or bruised, take a deluxe fan brush and sweep away anything that has dropped.
The shape of the bent liner makes it easy to get a nice tight line along the base of the lashes.
Make sure you lift it out and up at the outer corner. If you follow your lash line all the way it will make you eyes look like they are angling downwards.
Isn’t it pretty?

Eye Shadow Primer
Nars shadow in Nepal

Tomorrow we’ll cover lash application, in time for the weekend!
I’ll also post some more pics of the final look.
