Spring Eye Makeup Tutorial + Mini Makeover Event


As part of my morning routine, I have to keep my essential coffee on hand, my cell phone for good tunes, and the most amazing mirror of my life.  After trying out the simplehuman Sensor Mirror, it became apparent that I've been utilizing the worst mirrors ever purchased prior.  It reveals every nook and cranny on your entire face, which is undoubtedly thrilling and scary at the same time.  However, it allows you to achieve a truly seamless look with cosmetics that I've never obtained before.  Basically, I've been walking around with the Britney Spears circa 2007 look before trying this out.  

Gorgeous bronze eye makeup paired with sun-kissed skin is all the rage for Spring 2015 beauty, as seen on the runways.  Lately, I've been rocking this look on a day-to-day basis because I love how effortlessly simply it is to pull together.  





Step 1) Apply a primer to the entire eyelid for long lasting wear
Step 2) Using a blending brush, apply a light-toned eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye
Step 3) Apply a dark-toned eyeshadow along the crease of the eyelid using a different brush
Step 4) Blend the eyelid with a new brush for a smoked out look
Step 5) Add a bright highlight underneath the brow line to make your eyes pop
Step 6) Create a dramatic cat eye with liquid eyeliner
Step 7) Using the same eyeshadow as the crease, apply a small amount under the lower lash line
Step 8) Finish the look off with a coat of voluminous mascara on top and bottom lashes
