1. Starting with a clean and moisturized face, check the areas that may need a little correction.

2. Using a green correcting concealer add a small amount anywhere you see redness.  Be sure you use this product sparingly!  Don’t us this if you are going out to night clubs…. black lights will not be your friend!

3. Add a corrector concealer in a lighter shade than your skin tone to cover any darkness.

4. Place powder under your eyes to help catch any fallen shadow.

5. Add a dab of shadow primer like ink…cosmetics shadow base in lite.  Apply this product using your ring finger to unsure you are not applying too much pressure.

6. Use a wide shadow brush and add a cream shimmer shadow all over the eye.

7. Add a pink/mauve shadow above the crease of your eye…sweep the brush back and forth in a half moon shape motion.

8. Take a smaller shadow brush and add a shimmer pigment in white/silver under the eyebrow and in the inner corner of the eyes.

9. Using a jet black eye pencil follow the rim of the entire eye.

10. Grab a thin liner brush with black shadow and lightly go over the same area.

11.  Use black lash adhesive and add false lashes to the top lash line.

12.  After the adhesive has dried add liquid liner to the top of the lashes to look more realistic.

13.  Use a fluff shadow brush to and a smoky grey black shadow to smoke out the edges of the look.

14.  Define the brow with a little bit of brown/black shadow.  Apply the product by using an angled brush.

15.  Top lashes with mascara.

16.  Sweep a peach/pink matte blush along the cheek bone using a fan styled makeup blush brush.

17.  Line your lips with a pink/purple lip liner and just add clear gloss.

18.  Top the look with a fabulous outfit and stilettos of course!


XOXO  Besos!
