[NOTE]: I’ve been getting so many submissions for the Stila Lipstick contest and in the process of reading them all. I will post winning entries tomorrow. Sorry for the delay, chicas!
This is a big day in Clumps of Mascara history. Okay….I’m being a bit dramatic (what else is new? HA!) but I am really excited to showcase my first ever tutorial. I have had sooooo many requests to do one “on a newbie” level and I am finally getting around to it.
But that doesn’t mean yall need to get spoiled and start requesting that I do them every week. Tuts are hard work and I admire the ladies that do them on a regular. LOL, I’m going to try do what I can.
This look is a quick neutral eye from a Stila trio that I received. It’s great because the highlighting color, lid color and crease color are all RIGHT there in the pot. So I thought it would be easy to showcase it. [NOTE]: This tutorial is for those who are still confused on color placements. I was not going for perfection here, folx…just showing where each color should go.
So let’s get started…
[CENTER] Crease color
[RIGHT] Lid color
Lid application-Studio Tools brush (Target)
Crease application-MAC 222
I like to start with the highlighter up under the brow first. Some folx do the highlighter last but do what works for you.
It looks a little crazy now but I’m going to come back and blend it nice later. BTW, my primer is all over the place. I forgot to smooth those edges out. Opps! Clumps of Mascara strikes again. LOL @ the brows. Bad brows is like my trademark, yall. Seriously…
I took a flat brush and now I’m going to start applying my lid color RIGHT ON the lid…..just below my crease.
Now we take the crease color…..
And apply it riiiight on the crease.
Optional step….I also like to apply my crease color on the on the outer V of my eye too. Like this..
That was actually very painful to upload. LOL! The video is actually a lot more pleasant to watch, if I do say so myself.
Yaaaay, thanks for the emails. I’ll leave the tutorials to the YouTube pros. Taking pictures AND doing a video is like a part time job. But it was fun. Tell me what you thiiiiiink. Click the link below to visit the video.
