To created a fresh, clean canvas, Charlottte applied Fit Me! Foundation with her fingers. Then she contoured the cheekbones with a deeper shade of Fit Me! Pressed Powder.

Charlotte started by drawing a thick line along the lashline with Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Sapphire Strength, adding a slight wing at the outer corner. Then she drew a second line in the crease to add playful edginess to the look. For an extra bold lash look, she applied Volumn’ Express The Falsies Flared Mascara in Very Black on top lashes, using the end of the wand to create thick, clump-like lashes. On the bottom, she used Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black short, quick brush strokes to create “painted-on” lashes.

To add a girlish element to this otherwise edgy look, Charlotte layered Color Sensational Lipcolor in Born With It and Nearly There to achieve the perfect light pink.
