Step 11. Now let’s switch to the eyes. In the second article of the series  (step 5), I suggested that you apply the Concealer Highlighter by It Cosmetics as base under the eyebrows. This is your first step when working on your eyes. 

For those of you who are fans of peachy shades and darker colors there is the Hard Candy Top Ten Trendsetter Palette Eyeshadow. This Palette has made a success namely of these colors…they are so even and matte that they seem transparent and practically don’t leave any color.

Of course if you want richer pigment then I can refer you to other brands such as Urban Decay’s Naked2, Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky or Stila Eyes Are the Window Shadow Palettes.

Something else about eyeshadow- these ones are very good NYC New York Color Sparkle Eye Dust. A very colorful pigment, awesome effect and very easy to apply. It is provided in ten shades. Its light-reflecting properties add shine and radiance. Still, the packaging might seem a little uncomfortable, as it comes in packed exactly like a lip gloss. When you take out the applicator, the powder scatters all over the place, but other than that these are great eyeshadows, offering an interesting range of colors.

Here’s a hint-use the bright pink color to put an accent on the middle part of the area under the eyebrows. You can use HOT SINGLES EYE SHADOW, PINK from the HOT SINGLES EYE SHADOW by NYX to get this effect.


Step 12. Last steps: the eyebrows and eyelashes-this is the easy part. You can use Hard Candy Brow Ink 24-Hour Brow Stain  for your eyebrows (it looks very natural, makes your eyebrows look thicker and more neat, it is also very easy to apply). You can also use  Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil by Maybelline which is quite good.

Step 13. For mascara I recommend Mascara Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics. It makes your eyelashes curl and look longer (the eye – opening Hook ‘n’ Roll brush grabs, separates, lifts, and curls even the smallest eyelashes, and the effects holds on for 12 hours). This mascara is not the right one for official looks of course. And if you’re interested in volume rather than length, again this mascara is not the right choice for you. If you’re not a fan of the wet look than you must look for something else, because the wet look is exactly what they were going for when they designed this mascara.

Another mascara choice for today is L’oreal Telescopic Mascara. It features a special brush with a flat side to lengthen lashes up to 60%, and a comb side to separate lashes with precision. To some of you the brush might be to thin, you might find a discomfort in using it, but for me it does e great job separating eyelashes so I’m a fan.
