I worked with a professional make-up artist from Pretoria, Megan Marx to create these looks. We created two looks using the Elizabeth Arden eyes wide shut colour collection.
To achieve this look just follow these simple steps. You could also create this look for the Holiday Season as well.
This look we created was with the oh so pink palette from Elizabeth Arden, and we made use of their little black compact too. This is a simple everyday glam look – perfect for the working woman.
Megan started off using an eyeshadow primer from Catrice Cosmetics, and then immediately started blending the darkest rosy shade into the crease of my eye with her favourite blending brush. The trick with this look is to focus the eyeshadow on the outer corners of the eye- as this will elongate the eye and make them appear larger than they actually are (Tip of the day).
Taking a dark plum liquid lipstick from Yardley, Megan smudged the lipstick into the outer corners of my eye as well to add some necessary drama. You can use any lipstick for this purpose, it can even double as a creme eyeshadow, just make sure it’s eye safe! Megan then took the lightest shade form the Elizabeth Arden palette and blended it towards the inner corner, adding light and dimension to the centre of my face. This look was completed with the Elizabeth Arden Lasting Impressions mascara, statement brow gel and false lashes.
These eyeshadows are high pigment and of great quality. They’re super easy to use and they are long lasting.
