Eyeliner Tips from Stila’s Sarah Luero

Tonight I sat down with Sarah Luero, celebrity makeup artist and Global Director of Creative Artistry & Education for Stila Cosmetics, for an exclusive preview of the gorgeous Holiday 2012 Collection. Sarah also showed us a few pointers on how to rock my favorite Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liners, including how to layer them.

Eyeliner Tips from Stila's Sarah Luero

* Put on mascara before you apply eyeliner. This will help maximize your eye area and allow you to really see where to apply the liner.

* To create what Sarah calls a “double-decker eyeliner”, start with a black or brown color like Stargazer and Oscar Fish from the new Stila Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Set (pictured below). Line your eyes like you normally would from the inner corner to the outer corner. Next, apply a different, brighter color (try Moray or Tetra from the same set) on top to really make it pop.

* Be creative. Use your Smudge Sticks as eyeshadows or even highlighters by applying TONS on the back of your hand then dabbing the product onto specific areas. They key is to work quickly, as the liners do dry fast and once they set, they will not budge!

* Sarah’s favorite look for the Holidays? Lots of eyeliner paired with a flawless complexion, a bit of cream blush and a bold matte berry lip.
