Every season I try to create one tutorial with a pretty and simple way to reflect the season with your makeup! This Spring, bring your lids to life with this totally wearable metallic silver shadow and pair it with this happy cheek and soft coral lip pop. Here’s how:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Wet the lid brush in water and dip it in the silver shadow to create a paste. Sweep it across the lid and crease to create a single color wash.
  2. Wet the eyeliner brush in water and dip it in the brown shadow to create a paste. Trace it along the upper lashline as demonstrated on Brooke above. You can also wing it out and up if you prefer elongating your eye.
  3. Add a couple coats of mascara.
  4. If you wear foundation/powder, now is the time to apply it. Then smile in the mirror so your apples pop out and swirl the blush on the top half of them.
  5. Finish by applying the tinted lip balm directly from the tube.

TIGHTLINING MASCARA

There are two gorgeous things that happen when you use a thin mini-mascara wand along the roots of your lashes. First, it stamps the lashline saving you from having to lift up the lid and trace in between the roots with a pencil. And second it flares the lashes upward, almost bending them as if you had pinched them with a lash curler. Once you try a thin mini wand, you might not go back to a big thick one!!

TBD FAVES:

STEPS:

  1. Place the wand directly at the roots of the upper lashline by coming up from underneath of them as demonstrated above.
  2. Stamp the lashline with the wand by pressing it against the roots.
  3. Continue stamping across until you’ve covered every bare space in between each root. As you stamp, you’ll notice the lashes will start to flare upwards. Now you can pull the wand through the lashes all the way to the tips and repeat along the bottom lashline.

Calling all makeup mavens out there! This one’s for you! If you love to express yourself by standing out, you’re going to love how pretty this is to wear. It’s such a simple idea: just frame your eyeshadow! Here’s how:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. I like to start with the eyeshadow first so there’s no accidental overlap, but you can reverse it if you want. Lightly wet the brush first for added intensity then swirl it in the silver shade and sweep it across the lid, winging it out and up as demonstrated on Magali above.
  2. Next simply outline the shape! Start at the inner corner and trace the liquid liner along the lashline, then wing it out along the bottom of the shadow’s wing, then back over across the crease line. If the original shape isn’t perfect, outline it as if it were then go back with a pointed q-tip and “erase” any silver shadow that is outside of the line.

As the newest addition to our Amp It Up Series, this quick tip takes us back to the basics. It’s a simple and quick way to add a little more drama when you’re going out to dinner or to a party without having to redo anything else from your day makeup. I know it slightly makes our eyes look a little smaller, but what you’re giving up in size (not that drastic honestly), you’re gaining so much more! It makes the eyes much more piercing, like you can see right through to someone’s soul! And it instantly draws all the attention to your eyes as it perfectly frames them and makes your eye color more intense. Here’s how:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Since you already have your shadow and mascara done from your daytime look, all you need to do is line the inner waterline. Start by gently pulling downward with a finger from your opposite hand as shown above then line the bottom inner waterline with the pencil.
  2. Look down and with a finger from your opposite hand, gently lift the upper lid upwards then rim the upper waterline with the pencil. Blink to marry the two together.
