Sheer Minerals Makeup: The Eyes Have It!

When it comes to makeup, the area we can have the most fun, and be the most creative with, are our eyes. We can simply apply a little mascara to sport a natural look, or go for the drop dead diva smokey eye, the trendy winged look or create a look all our own. There are so many ways to highlight, frame, enhance, shape and bring out the windows to our soul. Below are just a few!!

 The Natural Look

Sweep the entire eyelid in a nude colored eye shadow such as Sand Pearl or Matte Mocha and apply Brown or Black Organic Mascara to the upper lashes only, concentrating on the outer lashes to uplift the eye. Using your Eyeliner Brush, use the same nude shadow to line the lower lash line to both corners to open the eye.

Smokey Eye

With the tip of your Eye Shadow Brush, using Smokey Eye or a darker shadow of your choice, line the bottom lash line from the inside corner and extend just slightly beyond the outer corner. Still using your Eye Shadow Brush and the same eye shadow color, open your eye and find the natural crease in your eyelid. Follow the crease to the outer edge and connect to the extended lower lash line you created. Using the triangle you created at the outer corner of your eye and the line in your crease as a guide, close your eye and fill from the center of your eyelid to the outer triangle. Use a mid tone eye shadow, such as Silver Sky or Blue Quartz to fill the other half of the eyelid, from the center to the inner corner. Highlight your brow bone with a light color like White Diamond or Ballerina Pink. Blend the three colors upward and outward lightly with a clean Eye Shadow Brush. For added drama, line your waterline with Black or Brown Natural Eye Liner Pencil.

Cat Eye Eyeliner

A look, I confess, I struggle to perfect! Sweep the eyelid in the color of your choice. Using either your eyeliner pencil or a wet Eyeliner Brush and a deep shade of eye shadow, line the lower lash line from the inner corner to the outer, extending slightly up and out in a diagonal line beyond the eye. If you have a steady hand, and can get both eyes lined at the same angle, you are AMAZING and I envy you! If not, you can use a business card as a guide. Using the same liner or wet shadow on your Eyeliner Brush, begin from the inside corner of the upper lid, following close to the lashes, line towards the center of the lid. Once you reach the center begin to ease the line, rather than curving with your lid, in a straight line to meet the extended line you created in the fist step, meeting in a point just outside of the eye, allowing the line to become a little thicker where they meet. You can then fill in, smooth and correct any inconsistencies in your line. This look and the winged look below, take a lot of practice patience and a steady hand. Easy on the morning coffee before attempting!!

Winged Eyeliner

To achieve the winged eye look, forgo the lower liner and repeat the steps above just lining the upper lid. You may, again use a business card as a guide for the diagonal line extending just outside the eye. Tip: If you don’t have much lid that shows when you open your eye, begin the line from the center of the eye rather than the inside corner.

Deep Set Eyes

To create the illusion of deep set, mysterious eyes, choose a light colored shadow such as Ballerina Pink, Dazzle or Sand Pearl and sweep from just below the brow bone and across the eyelid. Using Suede Eye Shadow, open your eye, find the crease with the end of your Eye Shadow Brush and follow the crease from the inside of the eye to the outside. Avoid getting the dark shade on the lid where the lighter shadow is, you want to create the illusion of a deeper crease with the dark shadow. Remember, darker colors recede, lighter colors bring forward. This will also create the illusion of a larger lid for those with hooded lids.

Open the Eye

To make the actual eye look larger, choose a neutral eye shadow to sweep across your lid, or none at all if that is your preference. Using your choice of natural eyeliner pencil or eye shadow, line from the center of your upper lid to the outer corner. Then line from the center of the lower lash line to the outer corner. Wet your Eyeliner Brush and, using White Diamond, line from the inside corner of your upper lid to the center and the inside of the lower lash line to the center. The sheen and light color of the White Diamond will create the illusion of a larger eye.

And last, but certainly not least, use any of our 12 Eye Shadow Instruction Cards for tried and true glamorous “eye-catching” color combinations.

As always, we would love to see your favorite looks on Instagram @lemongrass_spa_products and Facebook!

Happy Spring!
