Sephora’s Playdate Ready Eye

February 8, 2012 with 0 Comments

 

Playdate Ready Eye:

Complexion: Pat eye cream along brow bones and just below the under eye area. Making sure the under eye area is well hydrated will enhance the appearance of your eye makeup. (Sephora Age Defy Eye Cream can be applied to under eye)

Eye - Prime: Kat Von D Eyeshadow Primer “Skin”: Cover the eyelids in primer from the lash line all the way up to the brow bown. Primer ensure that your lids are prepped for eye shadow application, it makes your makeup go on smoother, blend easier and last.
Eye – EnhanceSephora Palette “Taupe Model NO6 With a crease brush apply a skin colour eye shadow to the center of the lids up to the crease. Using a crease brush makes it easier to evenly distribute colour all over the lid. * Deeper skin tones opt for a deeper rich brown shadow that doesnt appear too red or golden. In general taupe shadows should beavoided since they have a tendency to look gray and attract attention versus naturally shape the eye.

Eye - Shape: Use a soft brown along the crease to create dimensionand give shape to the eye. When creating a shape make sure you don’t use any shadows that are too pink or yellow; use something neutral-a true brown. Keep the eye open so the shaping shadow will go exactly where the natural crease is when the eye is open. Build and layer until you achieve the desired amount of depth.

Eye - Define: Using a dark brwon shadow on a smokey eye brush wiggle it in betweenthe lashes a the root to really give your eyes a definition. Its a great alternative to eyeliner and it also gives the illusion of thicker fuller lashes.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Keep your eye cream in the fridge, puttin it on cold feels so much better and has a way better effect for depuffing especially!
  • Use a stippling mostion when applying the base (enhance) shadow to avoid the mess under your eyes!
  • Using small circular motions in the crease will give you a softer definition versus the “windshield wiper” motion.
  • Tight lining is another great way to make the lashes appear fuller!
  • Holding your blow drier to your eyelash curler for 5-10 seconds will heat it up and give you more curl! (be very careful, it gets really HOT)
