How to create this look: Apply a neutral and flattering foundation to your entire face. Blending is key here, make sure to apply sparingly and build from there. To cover Blemishes or redness, dot on a tiny amount of concealer and tap gently with your ring finger. A little goes a long way! With our model Brittany we decided to go with a cat eye vs. a smoky eye. The gorgeous teal we chose is intense and we wanted it to be reminiscent of a peacocks plume. We began by applying a luscious gold over the entire lid. Then we applied teal across her top lash line, bringing it up and out at a slight angle to contour her eye:
We completed the look with a deep plum liner, across her upper lash line and to the corner of her lower lash line. We blended this out with a touch of teal shadow as well, to give her extra sparkle. We finished the look with Maybelline Great Lash mascara in “Blackest Black” to accentuate her gorgeous lashes.
- Always think blend, blend, blend when applying foundations and shadows, it’s easy to overdo it! Start out with a little and build up to your desired intensity.
- Apply loose powder under your eye before using brighter shades, this catches any shadow that may fall during application, when you have completed your shadow, gently remove any excess with a light sweep of a powder brush.
- When using high intensity color on the eye, go neutral on the lip. This keeps the look fresh and professional.
