Holiday Party Eye Makeup

Dec 03, 2012

Create gorgeous dramatic eyes for your next holiday get-together with these easy steps from Suzie Bond, owner of Perfect 5th in Mooresville, NC, and a L'oreal Professionel Portfolio Artist.

Tools

You'll need:

  • Mascara
  • Eye Shadow
  • Eye liner
  • Makeup applicator brushes

Applying eye shadow with the sponge applicators it comes with won't allow you to define your eye shape as well as a brush application. Invest in 3 size brushes to complete your eye look - a wide eye foundation brush - use this to apply the lightest base shade. A narrower shadow brush to apply contour (shadow placed in the crease to deepen eyes). And a small liner brush to be used wet and dry to apply shadow as a liner.

Eye Shadows

Soft Browns and Plums are the perfect color palette to compliment any eye while accentuating the positive.  Begin with a tone similar to your skin over the entire lid. Choose a deeper shade of brown or plum in the crease making it wider at the outer corner and narrow toward your nose. Be sure to blend the line for soft sophistication.

For an easy application try  Mirabella's Magic Marker. Utilize a wet brush in your favorite deep shadow to blend and line the bottom lashes. Now go to the medium shade to apply contour - always making is narrow in the crease closest to your nose and wider to the outer corner. Be sure to blend that shade down into the liner to complete the corner. Now use the lightest shade over everything to blend the contour down to your liner then gently up to the brow bone. Put a bit extra along the brow bone to highlight the top.

Eye Liner

For a more updated look of heavy liner, try using more than one color. Begin with black line in the lash line then blend it larger with a deep color of green or purple. Blend with a lighter shade of brown or plum into the lid for a sophisticated smokey eye.

For a more dramatic eye appropriate for your evening functions begin with a medium coat of liner - narrow at the nose and slightly wider at the outer edges.

Utilizing a tiny liner brush, wet it and apply a fine line of your darkest shade at the upper lash line. Rewet for the second eye. Be sure to push the product into the lash line - you don't want it sitting above it. Finish with a fine stroke under your bottom lashes - thicker on the outer corner to nothing at the nose. Now for mascara.

Mascara

Having dramatic eyes can be summed up in one word: Mascara. Be sure to gently apply multiple coats... allowing them to dry between applications. Replace your mascara every 6 weeks to assure no clumping or spreading of bacteria. And never share with a friend.You want to claim this product as your very own to keep it bacteria free for healthy gorgeous eyes.

And be sure to groom those brows! They are the frame for those windows to your soul!

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her.

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
