Eye Makeup Tutorial {Step by Step}

here's the eye makeup i wore on my most recent Good Day Colorado appearance. i think a common mistake people make is that when they are going to a fancy event or getting their photo taken, they over-do the eye makeup going for dramatic. often i find that the chicest eye makeup is usually the simplest, so i created this step by step eye makeup tutorial to demonstrate.

while i claim simplicity i was on tv, so i had to make it a little bit heavier than normal (false eyelashes typically not required for this look). this makeup style gives a smokey edge while keeping your eyes bright for daytime.

since i have had several requests for different angles of the look, specifically what it looks like with my eyes open, i added some additional shots. let me know if that helps or not.

  1. apply shimmer shade to entire eyelid
  2. apply medium brown shade to crease. apply with a fluffy brush so that color is diffused.
  3. apply dark brown color to crease in a thin line. use a pencil brush to apply so that color is directly applied.
  4. enjoy!
