In this post I am going to show you a look for Valentines Day- it's a smokey look. (I hope I explain it well enough- I have yet to try a video tutorial- maybe I will try it soon- we will see!) For those who aren't used to wearing or don't like wearing it dark you can improvise using your favorite light brown shadow. :) This can be worn day or night- which ever you prefer.
I started using an eye base all over the eye- lash to brow, blending lightly with your finger for an even layer. Using a small shadow brush- you will take the Bare Minerals in "Tiramisu" on your on the inner first 1/3 of your eye lid, lightly pat the color only to the crease- don't go past. (With the same small brush- cleaned- you can brush the remainder of the tiramisu on a towel or tissue) Take the "Red Velvet Cake" and apply to the rest of the lid- lightly pat to the crease- don't go above crease with this color either. :) Using and Angled brush (one that you blend liner with) and take the "Chocolate Fondue" and place the brush at the outer corner of the eye and pull the color into the crease. Blend all the way over to the inner corner ( the line should be smaller as you pull the color in ) Take a clean brush blend the dark color into the red- be careful not to blend the color out- just make the harsh line not visible. (see below with the blending from DK to Red) Take a different small shadow brush (or clean the other one again) and take the "Dulce De Leche" (highlighter) and blend it from brow to DK color. (Blend any Harsh lines you see and want to look smooth from color to color) I then used my felt tip LINER in BLK and lined my eyes starting half way and pulled it out past the outer corner of my eye. If you don't like liquid liner then use what ever you are comfortable with.
I filled in my brows- you don't have to if you don't want- mine are just really light against my darker hair.
I used Jane Iredale Mineral Foundation in "Satin" all over and used a lip color that I mixed my self. I used a blush that compares to NARS "orgasm" in color- but use what you have that you like.
I hope you guys like it- and maybe it will give you some ideas for Valentines Day. :) I would LOVE to see what you come up with! :) Email me your pics!
Happy Valentines- Happy Creating- Naturally!
