This lovely look is an homage to Raquel Welch from the 1960′s and is actually easier than it seems if you just break it down. Your friends will be so impressed! Here’s all you need to do:

TOOLS:
You’ll need a flesh-toned shadow, a brown or grey kohl pencil for the crease, a Q-tip, a black kohl pencil for the lash line, an angled liner brush, a black liquid liner, a black eyeshadow, a white longwear pencil, concealer, concealer brush, pressed face powder, mascara, Winks faux lashes and eco-friendly lash glue.

These seven brushes are our favorites to perfect your skin. You don’t need all of them, as you probably don’t use cream, liquid and mineral foundation all together!

We continue our Why Not? Series with this fun one that will really wow your friends! It’s such a playful and creative take on winged-out liquid liner and easy to do with this DIY stencil. After trying to make the scalloped edge with a hole puncher {too small} or drawing it freehand {might work for a lot of you but didn’t for me}, I remembered this heart pattern that I used to doodle all over my notebooks in high school and wondered if the top half could make a nice scalloped edge… and somehow, it did just that! You’ll find this one easier if you enlist a friend to do it on each other, so I borrowed my friend Areana and here’s what we did! (more…)
