Tuesday QuickTIp #38 - August 25, 2009

She's got everything - fab clothes, great jobs, a hot guy, and the most enviable eye makeup on the planet.

Now you can be one step closer to Barbie status - Brett tells us how to get those glam eyes...for real!

To get a vivid, crisp lash line like Barbie, arm yourself with a silver shadow compact and liquid eyeliner.

First, give a silver dusting to the whole lid from lash line to brow line and into the tear duct. Add a sweep of a purple-gray hue to the crease of the eyelid to add depth.

To apply liquid liner like a pro, use one with a felt tip applicator - they're easier to control. Brett loves Sephora's version. Lightly dot on the liner and stay as close as possible to the lash line. Then, press the felt tip firmly into skin (press too lightly and it might bump along) and 'connect the dots' to smooth the line, fanning it up and out toward the temples on the ends.

Remember, liquid liner takes about a full minute to dry. When the liner stops glistening, it's dry.

Voila! You're a Barbie girl!
