Since Barbie is celebrating her 50th birthday this month, I just have to blog about the beauty icon! Read on to learn how you can pull a Barbie look!
So I did a tutorial on a natural glossy eye last week. Today I will cover a slightly more advanced version of the same look – a dramatic glossy eye.
Since the look involves the use of darker colors, it will require patience and practice to master it. Compared to the natural glossy eye, this also has a higher tendency to smudge. I highly suggest you save it for photoshoots or the runway.
Glossy eyes have always been one of my favorite looks. The subtle sheen the gloss creates can instantly brighten up your eyes and give off a fresh, luminous glow to your whole face. But while they are pretty to look at, they do have the tendency to crease and migrate. Besides, finding the right product to achieve the look and creating them itself can be tough. I have tried a few of the eye glosses out there and trust me, most of them have failed me miserably (and I don’t even have oily eyelids!!) So instead of investing in a gazillion products that claim to give you glossy eyes that last, I suggest you use good old Vaseline or a clear lip gloss. Below is a brief tutorial on how you can create a natural glossy eye. Hope you guys like it!
Here is an awesome video tutorial on how to apply bronzer by smokin’ hot Canadian makeup artist, Beau Nelson. Beau has done makeup on a lot of celebs like Amanda Bynes, Sienna Miller and Iman. I *think* the two products he used in the video are a bronzer by Calvin Klein and NARS blush in Orgasm.
Here is “Cultured” from MAC’s newest Strange Hybrid collectionas requested. The flash on my camera is acting weird so the colors are coming out slightly washed out – sorry!
