Great makeup looks! I am excited to try some of them.
My question and very LARGE desire is to know how to apply eye shadow in the crease as Starryskies214 has don. Which brushes are used?
I’ve seen her and a few others using this technique, absolutely beautiful. But how can the line turn out so sharp in the bottom, while faded perfectly at the top at the same time………
Can someone tell me how to do that technique, or show me the link to a tutorial describing the way to do it.
Hope Marlena, her staff or one of you beautiful girls out there will help!

Have a great makeup day!
