I”ve been an extremely lazy beauty blogger when it comes to eye makeup lately. There are multiple reasons why, but honestly? It’s just that I don’t really want to bother blending and blending and blending eyeshadows all the morning long.
It’s awards season in Hollywood, so all the stops come out for makeup looks at this time of year. But this is one that caught my eye:
Emma Stone has hooded eyes, just like me, so when I saw this winged eyeshadow look, I loved it! I love a cat-eye as much as the next beauty junkie, but when you have hooded eyes, or more like hooded eyes that are uneven like mine? It’s REALLY difficult to do every day. But this eyeshadow look is genius for us hooded eye gals! It still gives that lift to the eye that we need, but it’s so much easier to do than faffing around with liquid liner.
Ever since that Sunday, when I do wear eyeshadows now(which is rarely btw), this is how I’ve been doing it! It’s so much easier I tell you. Not a lot of blending since it quite a graphic look, and I can’t tell you how happy that makes me haha! This is FAST. All you do is sketch it out with your eyeshadow and fill it in. Simple. And as you can see it works for daytime looks as well as that night time look Emma is wearing. Just add some eyeliner to your waterline and darker, smokier eyeshadows for some drama and BOOM. You are done! And if you love and use eyeshadow pencils? Then doing this look is even easier my friends. Try it! And I see the Pixiwoo girls on Youtube have also done a look based off of this, although I think my way is a bit easier LOL. They still do a lot of blending, blending, blending…:P talk about making something harder than it really needs to be…which is why I kinda’ avoid YT lately, unless it’s Lisa Eldridge. 😀
The new(well, not so new-like a couple months new now LOL) MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liner is a twist up, gliding eye pencil that I like to use for my other favourite eye look. Well, probably my MOST favourite and worn eye look!
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liners are available in 15 highly pigmented shades and 5 different finishes Matte, Metallic, Iridescent, Diamond, and Satin finishes. And no need for a sharpener as these are twisty-ups!
So creamy and really blendable! And that’s what I look for in an eyeliner lately as I am getting older and older! The less tugging at my eyes, the better. I take these MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liners and apply them to my bottom and top lash lines and smudge, smudge, smudge baby. BAZINGA! Eye look done.
This simple eyeliner look is exactly what I need to give my eyes some definition behind my new, big glasses. That’s why it’s my favourite all time eye look lately. That, and it stays PUT, even through hot flashes. I’m telling ya, if a really blazing inferno of a hot flash happens, makeup MOOOOOOVES. These MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Liners don’t! Love ’em.
Have you tried a new makeup look recently? Do you have a favourite, easy eye makeup look? What is it?
