Video Quick Tip #65 - February 15, 2011

Looking to create “it girl” eyes? Then look no further!

Brett worked with starlet Jessica Lucas for the Big Momma’s House: Like Father Like Son premiere, and to complement her bold army green dress, he gave her smoky eyes with a khaki spin.

Your kit should include –
  • MAC eye shadow: Blackberry, Print and Nylon
  • Jemma Kidd School liner in Kingfisher
  • MAC Smolder eyeliner
  • eye shadow brushes: a medium size and a smaller, tighter brush
  • Vanitymark Ultra-Brow pencil in Milk Choco
Lightly fill in the brows behind the brow hairs. Use a brow pencil that’s one shade lighter than hairs for the most natural look. For Jessica’s coloring, Vanitymark’s Ultra-Brow pencil in Milk Choco (a medium chocolate brown) works perfectly.

Take MAC Blackberry, a neutral plum shade and apply deep into the crease of the lid, lightly up into the brow area and underneath the eye. Carry the color to the outside corner of the eye and let the colors meet there.

Using a small brush, apply MAC Print, a matte charcoal shadow as an eyeliner, keeping it tight to the lower lashline and carrying the line out and up.

Highlight the brow bone under the arch and the inner tear duct with MAC Nylon, a champagne shimmer.

Now for the edgy part. Use Jemma Kidd School eyeliner in Kingfisher as a cream shadow and brush onto the lid, making the color stronger near the lashline. Brett loves this color – it’s the perfect khaki green and even has a hint of metallic sheen.

For the finishing touch, apply a hint of MAC Smolder eyeliner to the upper and lower lash line, Ardell individual lash falsies and L’Oreal Voluminous mascara.

Enjoy pretty!
