Nathan’s Tips: How to Do Bold Eye Makeup
Bold eye makeup is always in fashion. A bright pop of color framed by darkness is both sexy and unexpected, like this look I created below. If pink is not your thing, have no fear. It can easily be replaced by any color you choose. If you are not feeling bold, try replacing the color with a more neutral shade. By taking the following steps, and playing around with the colors, you will have an infinite number of new looks at your disposal. Read on to get the look…
Anything you do to your eyes, cheeks and lips will only look better if it is set on a flawless face. To perfect the canvas, try Natural Finish foundation by Cover FX and Magic Salmon Concealer by Eve Pearl. When set with a fine powder, these two powerhouses deliver a flawless, dewy glow.
To maximize the pop, start with white Flash Color by Make Up For Ever. This opaque cream will completely cancel out your skin tone and allow the truest read of color on the lid. With the white applied from lash to crease, tap in Cherry Bomb Loose Color Concentrates by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. This little pot of magic is the find of the century. The pigment load is so high that these babies last all day and glide on like a dream.
In the crease and along the outer corner, sweep Onyx Eye Color by Make-up Designory. Using an angle brush, pull this color along the upper and lower lash lines to define the eye. The last step on the eyes is Mascara. Three coats to the upper and two to the lower will bring those lashes to unbelievable lengths.
on the cheekbone and inner apple area. An extra touch on the bridge of the nose, the chin, forehead and under the brow bone will add extra pop.
For a bee stung look try Vamp Lip Glistens by Beauty Society. A sheer coat really shows off the sexy pout!
That’s how easy it is to get this beautiful bold look.
