The title probably made you go "EH?" but I have a reason for such title!
A reader once emailed me and asked me for help on makeup for puffy eyes! Okay, am I being asked because I have puffy eyes? *raises one eyebrow*
Fine! It's true! I do have puffy eyes on random days and I do have clients with puffy eyes too! (Ttrying to include everyone here, I'm not alone on this okay?) *laughs*
*Grumpy Mode over*
I finally had the chance to create AMW way! Please bear in mind there are a lot more ways to do this! At the end of the day, practice makes perfect! Try as many color combinations and techniques
I used the Clinique Lid Smoothie Anti-oxidant 8-hour eye colour in Pinko Biloba all over the lids.
Apply a shimmery pinkish eyeshadow all over lids. I am using Pink Chiffon Shimmer Wash eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown's Pretty Palette.
I usually steer away from shimmery shades as it can enhance eye puffiness, try to be careful by applying only a tiny amount to create a subtle shimmer underneath.
Taking out my Human Nature Mineral Eyeshadow Enchanted Evening palette, I applied the silvery-gray eyeshadow on the crease area going a bit beyond. Add the shadow as needed and blend the harsh edges with a fluffy blending brush. I am using a Vegan Blending Brush from Charm.
With a pencil brush, I grabbed a good amount of matte black eyeshadow from Sleek applying carefully only on the crease area.
With the same fluffy blending brush on Step2, blend to blur out edges blending the silver gray eyeshadow and the matte black eyeshadow.
Time for eye lining, I whipped out my ELF Cream Eyeliner in Black and lined my eyes carefully.
Since everything is turning out a bit too dark for a daytime look, I used a nice Teal Colored Fluidliner pencil from Inuovi. (thanks a dear angel for gifting me this, I love this so much!)
Curl your lashes and apply a good amount of mascara.
My Finish Look
Dark dark colored eyeshadow on the crease area decreases the look of puffiness The bright colored liner is an added plus to focus on the bright liner instead of the puffy eyes!
What's on the rest of my face?
For the Face:
For the Cheeks
Shu Uemura x Wong Kar Wai
in Pleasure Rose
For the Lips:
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited in Pink Flush
Revlon Colorburst in Pink Ice
The makeup focuses on the eyes and left
with an ice-y pink cheeks and lips
Okay, you may expect something more like drawing myself into a Powerpuff girl character! *laughs*
Of course not! Halloween is over :)
Hope you enjoyed this simple AMW Version!
Have a great day!
