I saw this eye tutorial in the November Issue of Glamour and decided to try it out.... and take pictures along the way for everyone's amusement.
I don't have a professional camera, so these shots aren't that clear. Knowing nothing about lighting sure doesn't help either.
|Here's the instructions (Glamour, Nov. 2012)|
Step 1: The lightest color from my Stila eye shadow trio in Gold Glow was what I used all over the lid.
Step 2: I used MAC eyeshadow in Embark in the crease.
Steps 3 and 4 I lined my eyes with MAC eyeliner in Phone Number.
Step 5: White eyeliner wasn't to be found in my makeup bag, so I used the closest thing I had - Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Topaz. This isn't a color I would have chosen to purchase. It was part of a Sephora gift set.
Step 6: I used Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express mascara in Blackest Black (why do they spell "volume" that way???). I wouldn't purchase this again. It flakes.
Here's the end result.
The lighter of the eyeliners wasn't very visible (and didn't show up at all in the photos). I might pick up a true white eyeliner and try this look again.
I'm sure no one from Sephora is going to hunt me down to be their newest make-up artist, but this task was kind of fun and I may do another one sometime in the future. It's a good excuse to try different looks.
