They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but I say makeup is what every girl should befriend, especially a good brown eyeshadow.
When used properly, brown eyeshadow can add depth to your eyes and make them look a gazillion times bigger. Plus pretty much any eye color and skin tone would look good with it. Need proof? Check out the following example taken from the latest issue of Easy Finder:
Before and After
||The easiest way to do a look for Halloween is to use false lashes and I mean really out there ones just like those from Shu Uemura’s.
These lashes, ranging from $15 to $50, are the latest must-haves from the Tokyo Lash Bar collection. Expensive? Yes but they will definitely get you all the attention you want.
Here are my picks:
Top to bottom: Premium brown feather false eyelashes, premium radiant blue false eyelashes and premium radiant yellow false eyelashes.
If you want something less dramatic, try:
Top to bottom: Mini crystal false eyelashes and mini diamante false eyelashes
Here’s a breakdown on Nicole Scherzinger’s look from the Come to Me video as requested.
Skin must be kept glowy and flawless. For those of you who are on the pale side, try mixing a liquid bronzer like Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion in Golden Light into your foundation. Highlight the bridge of your nose with a shimmery beige color like MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpagne.
Nicole’s eyes are sexified with a soft smoky look. Try Stila’s Fall in Love trio in Cedar Grove from their Fall collection. Apply the lightest color as a wash and add a little more under your browbone. Next, apply the shimmery copper color onto your entire eyelid and darken your crease with the mocha color. Remember to apply black eyeliner along both your up and bottom lashlines and lots and lots of mascara to bring out your peepers.
Suck in your cheeks and apply a peachy pink blush (try NARS Orgasm) along your cheekbones. Next, apply a darker blush like NARS Laguna right under the pink blush to contour.
Skip liner and apply a peachy pink lipgloss like NARS Orgasm to make your lips look uber luscious.
