Its time for Part II.
* Press an eyelash curler to the root of your upper lashes & hold for five seconds. Then at the middle of the lashes near the ends
* When applying mascara for thickness, hold the brush as close to the base of the lashes as possible & wiggle as you move it through the lashes. Let it dry for 10 seconds then place brush at lash base & wiggle again as you move up the lashes
What to know about mascara:
* NEVER pump the wand
* Use less mascara on the lower lashes or don't put any at all
* NEVER keep mascara longer than six months
* Blondes - use a light brown pencil
* Redheads - use a honey brown pencil for the day & a dark brown for night
* Brunettes - use a deep brown & black is best after dark
* Tilt your chin upwards so that way you are looking down your nose into a mirror
* Apply foundation or concealer to your lids. Blend well to prevent creasing
* If eyes are close-set or round, line only the outer corners. Otherwise line the entire upper lid
* Soften the eyeliner pencil by rolling it between your fingers
* Never pull your eyelids.
* Begin at the inner corner & draw small dashes along the top lashes. Be sure to stay close to the lashes. To make your eyes look bigger, go slightly beyond the outer corners
* Soften the line w/ a smugger brush.
Making a cat eye:
* At the outside of your pupil, begin slightly upward, then flick the line upwards & outwards toward the center of your temple
* Make the line as far as you want. In most cases, about a quarter of an inch looks good.
Go for contrast:
* Dark eyes - grays, blues, purples or greens
* Light eyes - brown, taupe or bronze
* Lip pencil is a MUST. It helps prevent bleeding or feathering of lipstick
* Quiet pinks & sheer textures are perfect for warm weather
* Dark wines & plumes - winter
* Olive skin looks good w/ light browns, warm tones or dark brownish reds
* Fair skin looks good w/ warm pink, peachy glows or dramatic reds
* Dark skin looks good w/ deep reds or deep reddish browns
Hope you enjoy!
Bye for now :)
