Video QuickTip #44 - December 8, 2009

The holidays are here – time to break out your LBD, get decked out and celebrate!

Wondering how you can switch up your makeup routine to look a little more bright and festive without spending extra money? Brett shows us a simple and pretty eye makeup trick perfect for the season.

There’s no better feeling than discovering a new makeup trick with products you already own!

Grab your favorite pewter or colorful shimmer shadow (the shimmer is key! Think blues, greens, and violets...) and a tight little eyeshadow brush.

Dampen the brush and swirl the wet brush through the shimmer shadow (Brett used Scott Barnes Blue Angel). Make the mixture very watery and literally paint the eyelid, the tearduct and underneath. You want a good saturation of color on the lid. Wait 1 minute for it to dry and blend into the crease.

The finished lid has a bright wash of color and looks like a cream shadow. Bonus: this eye shadow method lasts way longer than a cream shadow….it’ll stay put no matter how long those parties last!

Happy Holidays to you and yours from Brett & Co.!
