Ti's the season for Christmas parties and get togethers. If you're wanting to try a few different looks to get you through the season, here's a few suggestions:
Rose Mocha Eyes and Lips Rose Mocha is a pretty base colour for the eyelid at any age. Rose Mocha has a soft brown base, hence the Mocha, but the pink tones show through. When used all over the eyelid as a wash it will become quite translucent and subtle. You can add more in the eye socket for definition.
How to Use Shake a small amount of eyeshadow into lid. Dip the shadow brush into the minerals and tap off excess. Apply eyeshadow in short strokes rather than drawing long lines. Short strokes will adhere better.
Lips Mix a small amount of water with the eyeshadow and apply to lips. Rose Mocha leaves a pretty pink hue.
Cat Eyes This very popular look is a great one to have in your repertoire. It tends to widen the eyes and lift the brow almost. Using a eyeliner liquid pen start from the inside of the eye and paint as close to your lash line as you possibly can. Start fine and gradually thicken as you go along then get finer again towards the end of the eye, bring the tail up and extend out. You can use the end of your eyebrow as a reference point. Tip - With round eyes you can extend the eyeliner higher towards your brow. With almond shaped eyes you won't need to take the eyeliner as high.
Smokey Purple Eyes You can achieve this using the colour Violet in the MISMO mineral eyeshadow range. Violet is a beautiful shade used regularly by makeup artists on both young and mature age groups. Younger girls love the vivacious rich violet for night use and you simply layer more powder to achieve this look. Soft aubergine is very flattering for a mature lady. To get the smokey purple eye look Step 1: Apply White Pearl over the entire eye lid and also take it up towards your brow bone. Step 2: Apply Storm from the outer lid in the crease of your eyelid to half way (to the mid line of the brow) and blend with angle brush. Step 3: Apply Violet on the outer lid of your eye and blend. Step 4: Add a precise thin line under your eye along the lashline and blend with your brush to give you the smokey effect. Step 5: Look at both eyes and add or blend where necessary. Tip - Blending is important for the smokey effect. Step 6: Apply a liquid or pencil liner close to the lash line creating a precise eyeline effect to finish the look. Don't be afraid to experiment with these looks and have a little fun!
