My eyes are my favorite feature, so I love experimenting with makeup that highlights them. Today I thought I’d share a makeup look where I really concentrated on making my eyes pop! What do you think; do they stand out?
My eye-enhancing makeup look.
To get this look, the first thing I did was to add Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the original formula to my lids. Next, I added neutral shadows from the Urban Decay ‘Naked2’ Palette kit. To highlight the inner corners of my eyes and look more refreshed, I added my favorite light and shimmery color from ColourPop (it’s only $5!).
Next, I tightlined my eyes with liquid liner in black to really make them stand out, and I added a cat eye. [You can see my eye shadow placement diagram guide on this post and learn more about tightlining.] To maximize the eye-opening effect, I added a coat of mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Finally, I added Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Dipbrow Pomade’ Waterproof Brow Color in “Soft Brown” to fill in my brows, and I set them with a clear gel. I think it’s important to frame your eyes by making your brows look really amazing, so I always spend an extra minute or two filling and shaping them. 🙂
Here’s the side view, where you can see that I added a bold cat eye using liquid liner.
For the rest of my face, I only used sunscreen, blush, and a bit of powder to set the look. I added a berry colored lip stain to finish off the look.
A shot of me looking down so you can see the shadows, which are all fairly neutral. These shadows are all from the Naked2 Palette.
These photos are from earlier in the summer, before I dyed my hair the darker brown color. I haven’t gone back to blonde, but I’m sure I will at some point since I love experimenting with my hair so much.
One final shot before I go!
Here are some makeup looks I’m loving on Pinterest where the eyes all really pop:
