For this edition of Makeup Wars, we were challenged to come up with our Favorite Summer Eye Look. In my world, that means it has to be something relatively fast, easy, yet look like I tried. Read on for the how-to…
Preparing the eye is key no matter what kind of look I’m doing. To start with I applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Prime (reviewed here) to eyelids and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (reviewed here) below. I added YSL Touche Eclat to the inner corner of my eye to brighten.
Next, on the lower part of the lid, I applied Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Sunlight Gold and in the contour, added Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Bronze (both reviewed here). To highlight, I gently tapped in MAC Vintage Selection Pro Longwear Paint Pot. Then it was time to line the eyes. First I tightlined with Trish McEvoy Intense Gel Eye Liner in Black, then I applied Aqualillies for Tarte Eyeliner in Splash (reviewed here). After that was complete, the eye was finished off with 2 coats of L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Power Volume 24H Mascara in Black Smoke. I LOVE this mascara, especially the brush!
To finish my eye look, I filled in the brow area with It Cosmetics Your Brows But Better in Universal Transforming Taupe. The entire look took me less than 10 minutes start to finish. And because it’s basically neutral colors with a punched-up eyeliner, I can wear it with almost everything, making it a versatile, too.
