NEUTRAL EYE WITH BOLD LIP

Meagan Rawlings

Step 1 .  Using the Zoeva Soft Concealer Brush and MAC Groundwork, blend all over lid to about 3 1/4 of the way up to your eyebrow. Make sure the edges are soft, use your finger to tap over the edge if your struggling to get the edges blended.

Step 2. I used the top far right colour of the Blushed Nudes Palettes for this look. Unfortunately these eyeshadows aren't super pigmented so I had to press on the colour with the Smokey Shader brush to get a better colour payoff. You could also dampen the brush before pressing on the eyeshadow to get a more dense colour. Take this almost to the edge of Groundwork.

Step 3. Take a Mac 217 brush with a warm toned neutral colour ( I used Saddle from MAC) to blend through the crease.

Step 4. Deepen up the crease with the brown colour from the Blushed Nudes Palette, it is the 2nd in on the right side. Take the wee pencil brush to darken the outer edge of the crease and also take the colour under the bottom lashes too.

Step 5. Liquid Liner time! It was my first time using the Maybelline Master Precise Curvy liner and I bloody loved it. So easy to control and I loved the shape of the nib. I winged my liner out but you could play it safe and just line the top lashes stopping at the outer most lash.

Step 6. Mascara and falsies. Maybelline's new Push Up Drama Mascara is incred! Usually when I get a new mascara it takes a bit of time to get used to the brush but not with this one. The brush is unlike any I have seen before but gives the perfect amount of thickness without clumping. The False lashes I like to wear are the Ardell Demi Wispies because they are super comfortable to wear (as far as false lashes go) and easy to apply. Do your best, applying lashes takes patience and time!

Step 7. Apply your foundation etc, I like to do my base first but sometimes it is easier to do it after the eyes. Spritz your face with the Maybelline Masterfix setting spray, make sure you shake it really well or it seems to spit a wee bit.

Step 8. Finish with the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Possessed Plum. Loving this colour at the moment, perfect for Winter!!
