"How to" by Joanna Bacas

Look 1: Blend Tom Ford‘s Shade and Illuminate contouring shade onto eyes, finish off by dabbing on some clear gloss for extra shine. Apply lipstick following the natural shape of the lips, then outline the upper lip line exaggerating the shade of the lip heart using the yellow liquid liner.

Look 2: Using a very fine liner brush create a winged liner, then follow your base liner just below the crease of the lid. Connect the two lines in the shape of an arrow, fill in with color if needed

Look 3: Using a clean spoolie pick up the blue color from the Makeup Forever Flash Color Case, and brush through brows until all hairs are covered with color. Pat on yellow shades of choice from the NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette and blend out to a soft round shape. Finish off using the red color from the Makeup Forever Flash Color Case on a fine liner brush to create the winger liner.

Look 4: Start off using reds from the two palettes to create your basic shape, then carve out a soft crease using MAC‘s Carbon. Using fingers, dab on gloss on the entire lid, mix gloss with some red from the Flash Color Case and dab on centre for added intensity. Paint in lips with lipliner, softening the edge with a q-tip.

Look 5: Create a graphic trapeze shape on the eyes using an angled liner brush, clean out the dots with a q-tip. Blend in dark blue eyeshadow from the Full Spectrum palette under the eye, and finish off with red mascara. Use the same lipstick on the eyes and lips to tie the look together..

Look 6: Pat on the eyeshadow with fingers for intense pigment payoff, blend out creating a rounded shape.
