Lets Talk Eye Makeup…

January 25, 2012

Oh, sweet sweet eye makeup.
What used to be my worst enemy…
{think back to this}
{I’m still questioning if I had eye balls all of my Middle and High School days.}
Is now something that I sparingly get complimented on.
Teenage girls:
Hold Out.
There is Hope.
Just start listening to those around you.
 Immediately.
Recently both Ashley & C Mae asked me how I do my eye make-up.
And while I had to laugh at the question, I figured I would answer it.
In a step by step tutorial.
Which means I had to start from the beginning.
With absolutely no eye make-up on, wet hair, and dressed in a robe.
I cringe just typing the words.

Anyhow–let’s get down to business.
Before I get down to the nitty gritty, I have to preface something.
I know there are many a men out there who say they prepare their girl “Au natural”
I’m gonna call their bluff on this one.
Who honestly prefers their woman to walk around looking like a haggard tired zombie?
Oh right, those who actually have women that possess “natural beauty”
Well guess what men.
Not all of us have that natural crap down.
Which is why God invented eye make-up.
Moving on…

You must first start with all the essentials.
Oh and real quick–this is not a paid post by Mary Kay.
I really do just use a lot of their products.
It may have something to do with the fact that I spent entirely way too much money buying “inventory”
when I sold their products, but that is another story for another day.
And honestly, I don’t have enough bottles of wine in my house to discuss that at this time.
Anyhow.

Step One:
Eye Primer
Use this ladies.
I don’t care what kind–just buy some.
And put it on your eyelids before you put on anything else.
It really will keep your eye shadow in place all day.
Step Two:
Apply a “highlighter” to the entire lid–
especially along the brow
Step Three:
Apply a “neutral” color along your eyelid bone
So I am not really sure if purple is “neutral” but let’s play pretend that it is.
Step Four:
Apply a dark color to the corners/crease of your lid
Step Five:
Make your eyes come alive with Eye Liner
I only line my bottom..if I do the top, I suddenly have no eyeballs at all.
I always start from the outside corner and work my way inwards
Step Six:
“Set” your eyeliner with Eye Shadow
..I use the “Coal” over the eye shadow-
and then the highlighter {Crystalline} on the inside corners of my eye to make them “pop”.
Step Seven:
Curl those bad boys
Step Eight:
The best for last-Mascara
I usually stick with Maybelline “Classic Lash” in Black–but sometimes if I’m feeling rather frisky,
I’ll break out the Mac Haute & Naughty.
I load the mascara up on every lash possible–tops/bottoms/outside/inside.
Step Nine:
Show off those eyeballs 🙂
Psssst.
One last thing–
Treat your eyes nice ladies.
They are the only pair you have.
Eye Cream & Eye Makeup Remover.
Make them your best friends.
