Products Used:

Get The Look

Start by priming your eyelid with a good primer to the entire eyelid. With a flat, stiff brush like the Makeup Geek Eye Shader Brush, apply Yellow Brick Road to lid and crease

Then apply the color Ice Queen to the inner corner of the eye to help open and brighten the eye. Then place under the brow bone as a highlight color.

With a small dome shaped brush such as the Makeup Geek Outer V Brush, shape the outer v with the color Mocha.

Fill the outer v with a mix of Cocoa Bear and Mocha to add intensity to the look. Combine these colors and place along the bottom lashline coming in to the end of your lashes making sure not to cover up the Ice Queen that was placed there earlier.

Take a fluffy blending brush and the shade Chickadee and place above the brown colors feathering them out and up slightly.

Then take a small amount of Corrupt and carefully blend to outer corner not covering up the browns that were placed there earlier. This will bring more depth to the look. Remember to use this sparenly though as Corrupt is very highly pigmented.

Using the Makeup Geek Angled Eyeliner Brush, line your eye with a black gel liner winging out the end. Don’t forget to line the upper and lower waterline. For a good alternative use a small amount of mixing medium or a drop of contact solution and Corrupt as your liner.

Apply mascara:

Add falsies of you want (I used Ardell #305)



And there you have it, a soft, smoldering look perfect for any hot summer night. Team it up with a soft pink cheek and a stunning pink shade like the Makeup Geek’s Adorable to finish off your eye-catching look.
