This soft yet striking look is ideal for anyone who wants to add a touch of class to their look. Begin by using NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base. Next, go in with a soft pink shade like Makeup Geek’s Cupcake and place on the lower lid and blending up past the crease making sure to feather out any harsh lines. Darken the crease up slightly by adding a touch of soft brown like Makeup Geek’s Mocha to the crease lightly. Go back in with the color Cupcake to blend out any harsh lines and create a soft effect by blending the color out. Now for the glitter, go in with a good glitter glue like the LA Splash Glitter Glue and a glitter of your choice. We recommend LA Splash in Gaudy. Use a black gel liner like Makeup Geek’s Immortal to create a thick winged liner on the top as well as the bottom making sure not to connect the two and leave an open space on the top and bottom. Smudge out the liner slightly under the eye to create a smokey effect. Add a touch of glitter on the outer part of the eye in the space between the upper and lower liner. Add a pair of feathery lashes to complete the look.

This sultry and smokey look uses just enough glitter to make this the perfect look for a party. Leave off the glitter and you have a stunning look for anytime. We will be giving you Makeup Geek alternatives to achieve this look. To begin this look place a small piece of scotch tape along the outer part of the eye. This will help create that crisp, sharp edge you see here. First, go in with the color Shimmermint and pat the color over the lower lid using a flat, stiff brush like the Makeup Geek Eye Shader Brush. Next go in with the fluffy brush like the Makeup Geek Crease Brush and the color Mocha and feather a small amount into the crease blending the color up slightly making sure to avoid any harsh lines. Using a stiffer brush such as the Makeup Geek Stiff Dome Brush, pick up the color Envy and run the color along the edge of the tape feathering the color inward over the outer 1/3 of the eye and into the crease but not covering the Mocha. Run the same color under the lower lashline as well.  Slowly remove the tape from your eye and use a brown liner like Makeup Geek’s Mobster to create two “flicks” at the end of the eye. Add a small amount of Bling in the inner corner of the eye and blend inward slightly. Now for the fun part! Go in with a gold glitter of your choice, we recommend LA Splash in Renaissance, and pat it gently in the inner corner and under the eye over the brown.

12small-550x649

Expressing her look on a broken heart this Valentine’s Day, this look is a great way to express yourself. Here the artist used a combination of various products to create this look. To begin, place a white base on the lower lid and line the lower waterline with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. Use a matte white eyeshadow like Makeup Geek’s White Lies to set the base on the lid and in the waterline. Next, the artist used Lime Crime’s Fly Dragonfly on a pencil brush in the crease of the eye and blended upward slightly and going inward onto the bridge of the nose. Go in with Lime Crime’s Lotus Noir and the same pencil brush to place the black over the red but not covering it. With an angled liner brush, create a black line under the eye not directly under the lashes connecting it with the upper shadows. This will visually give the eyes a larger appearance. Wipe the brush off and go back in with the red and blend the line out slightly. Use Maybelline’s gel liner in black and create a winged liner effect on the upper lashline. Pick up the red shadow again and pat in a small line directly above the gel liner. For the top lashes use Red Cherry’s lashes #100 and for the bottom #138. Go in with LA Splash glitter glue and NYX glitter in Crystal and place over the white part of the upper eyelid making sure to get it in the inner corner and under the eye slightly. For this look you want your face to appear white. To do this, use a white base or a foundation in Porcelain. Use an angled blush brush and the red eyeshadow for your blush. To create the tears in this look, mix Glamour Doll Eyes pigment in Ladies Night, Mehron Mixing Liquid and a small amount of water. This should have a slight runny consistency to it. Place a drop under the eye directly under the lashes and press down so it runs by itself. As it runs add a small amount of water so it becomes more transparent. Create 2 “tears” on each eye. Use the same mixture to draw small hearts at the end of each line. Use purple and black liquid liners to free hand the lines along the face. Use a deep purple or black lipstick and a clear gloss for the lips. Feather the red eyeshadow into the hairline and use a white liquid liner to create the streaks. Use a black liner to trace the jaw line and fade it out slightly. Use NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean and place streaks along the neck line and blend them out then go back in with your white or porcelain foundation and blend out the rest of the neck area. Go back in with Ladies Night and set the Black Bean you smudged out. Create a stencil by cutting a heart in a piece of thin cardboard and hold it where you want your hearts to be along your neck. use a brush to stipple on the the same white or porcelain foundation in the stencil.

A dramatic cut crease has never looked so amazing! If this look is something you covet then begin by creating a black cut crease with Makeup Geek’s Corrupt extending it past the inner corner onto the nose and past the eye to the temple. Use the same black to draw your “flames” above the cut crease and from the temple extending down past the outer corner of the eye. Fill in each one using your favorite oranges, reds and browns. Remember, the key to a look like this is shading and blending. Make sure to blend the lines together where each different color begins so the colors have a gradient effect to them. Add a gold glitter to the eye to add depth and sparkle to the look. Create a dramatic winged liner on the upper lashline with a intense black liner like Immortal extending it toward but not up to the temple and then under the outer part of the lower lashline coming in 1/3 of the way.
