Neutrals after Neutrals, I think its time to show some colors because summer is coming up!
Before we start:
Applied a good amount of Benefit Lemon Aid all over lids to "brighten up" the lid area at the same time, this act as an eyeshadow base.
Step 1:Using L'Oreal Open Eyes Pro Palette 05, apply shimmery lilac eyeshadow all over lids going a bit beyond your lids for a nice base. Using a pencil brush, apply a bit on the lower lash line.
Using the darkest purple color of the palette, gently sweet on the purple eyeshadow on the outer corner creating an illusion of deeper set eyes.
Step 3:With the silver shadow, apply a bit more on the inner lids, patting motion would be better!
With a sponge applicator, apply the shimmery white powder on the inner corner of your eyes and a bit on the brow bone.
Step 5:I needed a dark black shadow to create more "depth", with Sleek's Graphite palette, I chose the darkest metallic black to make my eyes bigger by applying a bit on the outer v. Blending as the colors were packed. With the same eye shadow, I used pencil brush to line the outer lower lash line to create a natural liner.
I gave false lashes a skip and decided to use what God has given me, my natural, non-existent lashes! :) I curled my lashes with Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, applied coats of Maybelline Magnum Volum' Express mascara in Black.
I filled my brows with Paul & Joe Eyebrow Pencil no. 2
I lined the upper lash line creating a tiny wing with ELF Cream Eyeliner in Black
