We get so many people asking us how to create the most amazingly perfect eyes of our EyeSpice cover girl. Although we don’t have a video tutorial for this, you can follow the below steps to create this look, and dazzle your friends.
This is a complex one! – Grade: Difficult
What you will need:
- Pink – use either Obsessive Compulsive Loose Colour Concentrate in Cherry Bomb, or for a more violet shade, use Heavenly Naturals Eye Pigment in Daddy’s Girl. Another option is to use your blush colour in a more condensed way – we suggest FaceFront BlushUp in Frawn Apawn (this gives you two uses with one product)!
- Gold – We use Heavenly Naturals Eye Pigment in Fancy Schmancy, but you could also use Heavenly Naturals Eye Pigment in Sun, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate in Auric, or FaceFront Paint Me Perfect in Bee Incredible (these alternative colours give a more Summery yellow shimmer rather than gold)
- Charcoal – We use Heavenly Naturals Eye Pigment in Dream Girl, or for a darker, smokier evening look, use FaceFront Paint Me Perfect in Heroic – but only use a small amount and blend well.
- Highlight – A highlight shade in a white tone is best used here. It softens out the pink if you choose a very bright shade. We use FaceFront Paint Me Perfect in Snow Cone, or Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate in Titania. But a skin coloured highlight can also be used to soften harsh edges. Try using your mineral powder foundation.
- EyeLiner – We use Coastal Scents Gel Liner in Indigo Blue or True Black
- Eye Brow Tint – Heavenly Naturals Eye Brow Tint comes in a range of shades to suit your brow colour
- Your favourite mascara and some false lashes if you’re game!
Step Two: Using your Sigma SS252 brush, apply pink to the upper lid from just inside the inner corner, to approximately one third of the way across the lid. Also apply this colour to the outer corner of the lid, up to the brow bone.
Step Three: Using the same Sigma SS252 brush, apply the charcoal colour to the upper lid from two thirds of the way along, to the outer corner. Using a clean Sigma SS275 blending brush, blend this charcoal colour up the outer corner of your brow bone to create a diffused blended line between the pink and the charcoal. With a Sigma SS219 pencil brush, apply a small amount of charcoal into the very inner corner of your eye and sweep this upwards almost to the brow bone, blending it to diffuse into the pink colour. Also pull the colour a small way under the inner corner of your lower lid.
Step Four: Using a Sigma SS252 or SS239 brush, dab the gold colour to the very centre of your upper lid, almost to the brow bone. Using a dry Sigma SS275 blending brush, very gently blend the gold into the pink and charcoal on either side. With a very small amount of pigment on your blending brush, blend some gold to the very outer edges of the pink and charcoal colours and create a diffused appearance between the 3 colours. Pull the gold from the temple area, down below the outer corner of the lower eyelid. Using your Sigma SS219 brush, dab a small amount of gold to the lower inner corner of your eye and blend this into the charcoal.
Step Five: Using your Eye liner, draw/paint a thin line below the lower lashes from the center, to the outer corner. Let this dry for half a minute. Also draw/paint a thin line above the top lashes at the lash line.
Step Six: Using your Sigma SS209 or SS266 brush, sweep a line of charcoal from the middle of the lower lash line (on top of the eye liner), out past the corner of your outer eye to create the appearance of larger eyes.
Step Seven: If you need to use your highlight colour to tidy up any edges, highight your brow (just below your outer eye brow, or to add a bit of highight to the inner corner of your eye, do this now.
Step Eight (Finishing Touches): Add a line of eyeliner to your water line, coat your lashes with two layers of mascara and fill in your brows with eye brow tint. For the rest of your face, give your cheeks some colour, add a touch of gloss to your lips (you don’t want too much colour to detract from your eyes), and….
You’re now ready to hit the town!
