I use the same formula for most of my eye looks – three eyeshadows and three brushes.
I’m using Stila Eyeshadows from the In The Light palette.
You can adjust the sizes of these brushes according to the size of your eyes (I have fairly large ones).
I use two lid colours (a lighter shade and a darker shade) and one colour on the lower lash line (a coordinating shade). You can cut this down to two colours using only the lighter and darker shade, but I find that introducing the third colour is a nice way to complete the look. Here are the shadows I’ll be using for my demo look:
I’ll be using Bubbly as the lighter shade, Sandstone as the darker shade and Sunset along my lower lashline.
Start with a clean, primed eye.
Use your eyeshadow brush to apply the lighter shade over most of your eyelid.
Use the same eyeshadow brush to pat the darker shade into the outer corner of your eyelid.
Use your blending brush to pull the darker shade up into your crease, softening the edges as you go. If you need more of the darker shade, use the blending brush to pick up a small amount.
Use your pencil brush to apply the coordinating colour onto your lower lashline.
Curl your lashes and add mascara. I’m using Wet ‘n Wild Megalash Clinical.
Once you’re comfortable with the pattern, you can replicate it with any colours you’d like. You can also mix in a contrasting colour to the lower lashline to switch it up.
Juniper and Freesia are from the Stila In The Garden palette.
Yours in beauty,
