Hi, I'm sure everyone is getting ready for the fall season with their hot pumpkin coffee and their houses decorated with fall colors and Halloween decor. This time is especially fun for us "posh girls" at Nicole Marie's because we are inspired as artists! We love helping everyone get ready for their festive parties with their fall colored eye shadows. Here are a four steps to keep in mind when having bridal makeup (especially eyes) and Halloween makeup POP!! 1)Shape your eye brows. The look you should always be going for is shaped and well groomed, so pluck any unwanted hairs that are out of line with your arch. Or seek out a professional to shape them for you and maintain at home. 2) Layer your eye shadow, Use two shades and you'll look twice as sexy (three or four for Halloween makeup trends) try brown, pink grey or even silvery blue. Sweep a darker hue from lash lines up to the creases and top with a lighter or shimmery version of the same color for a two toned look and please don't forget to blend, blend, and blend! 3)Line your lids. For a bridal makeup look you want to keep it more subtle but if you are going more dramatic with your eye makeup then you should coordinate your pencil with your eye shadow on top and bottom lash lines. Feeling even more bold? Then rim the inside of the eyes (water line) with black for a sultry look. If you are trying a trendy color pencil then skip the eye shadow. 4)Curl your eyelashes and apply mascara. Don't forget you bottom lashes because they need love too! Just don't go over board with the bottom lashes because you can cast a dark shadow that can be unflattering.
NEW TREND ALERT FOR SEXY SULTRY BRIDAL MAKEUP EYES:
Starting at your eyes' inner corner, apply a pink or purple eye shadow and swoosh it up over the top of the lids. Next swipe, shimmery grey or silver below your eyes and extend it to the outer corners and blend up into creases. Smudge with a q-tip.Then black eyeliner on top and bottom, two coats of mascara and depending on how dramatic you want to go, faux lashes for the final seductive look!
