Sunset Eyes – Video

I just started using youtube for tutorials, here is my first!

Tutorial – Cut Crease, Purple and White

Here is a tutorial somewhat similar to the Christina Aguilera look but a bit softer as no bottom lashes and only very minimal liner on the bottom lashes.

I have started with my base done.
I have used
Foundation – Masquerade
Concealer – Masquerade
Primer- Smashbox Hybrid and Too faced Eyeshadow Insurance
Eyebrows – Mac Auburn Powder

(arghh scary huh!!!)

Then I applied Mac Paint Stick in white as my base. .

Set with a white powder eyeshadow I used Masquerade Gothic White

Then got the Two Faced Bon Bon duo and added the peachy c
olour to the lid up to the crease.

I picked up Mac’s Nocturnal eye shadow and used an angled brush to “cut” through the crease.
I then got a pencil brush and pulled the colour upwards.

Then I grabbed Still’s Dahlia and Darkened the crease area.

Next I picked up the paint stick again and made sure the crease like was sharper and then set with white powder.

Got Chi Chi all Night Long and went over the crease line

went over the lid again with the Bon Bon Duo and blended the highlighter colour from the brow bone slightly into the crease.

Then i Did my waterline with Smashbox’s White pencil liner and then set with the Masquerade white shadow (probably not recommended but will make the liner to last)

Then get your favourite liner and line the top and slightly underneath your lashes. I used BYS Liquid Liner in Black.

Clean up the area and pull the white shadow around the end of the liner to make it stand out.

Add your false lashes, I’m using 1000hr Fashion Lashes.

Then apply you mascara to blend the falsies with your own. Best way to do this is to drag the mascara wand from underneath so you don’t actually coat the falsies themselves. (easier to clean and you can use then over and over) I used Benefit Get Bent Mascara.

I then added Mac Reflect Very Blue Glitter with
BYS activator

The next step is to fix the rest up. I applied Smashbox Sunset Highlighter Mac’s Tippy Blush (from HK release) And Elizabeth Arden Bronzer Duo. Then set with Masquerade transparent powder.

For the Lips I used a Napoleon liner in dream then Mac’s Fashion Mews and Pink Fish TLC. ( i later changed this before i went out to more of a pastel pink by removing the lip liner, too much purple all at once!)

Thanks for looking!!
