LBD? Check. Red-soled sky-high stilettos? Check. You even threw in an extra shave session. Now on to perfecting your come-hither gaze (in case we need to remind you, Mother Nature gave you those flirtatious lashes for a reason). Here, San Francisco makeup pro Hillary Clark shares how to get your sexy on.
Fresh and flirty. Start with a matte white shadow applied from lash to brow. Enhance the area above the crease with a soft, matte pink shadow like Makeup Forever Eyeshadow in Matte Flesh Pink to open the eye. Then apply a shimmering white shadow to the inner corner and lower lash line. Finish by lining the outer corner of the eye with a pewter liner like Stila Eye Shadow Pan in Pewter.
Soft and smoky. Line the inner membrane of the top and bottom lash lines with a metallic bronze liner. “I love Urban Decay 24/7 in Underground because it stays put all night long,” says Clark. Sweep a light veil of bronze shadow like the one in the Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quad in Sunlit Bronze across the lid and into the crease; then apply it under the lower lash line with a fluffy brush (this look has no sharp lines or angles). Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Lots and lots of lashes. Sweep a subtle shade of shimmering beige like L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Iced Latte across the lid, and line top and bottom lash lines with a rich brown eyeliner. Apply a subtle plum-gold shadow like YSL Ombre Duo Lumiere in Silver Gray/ Golden Plum in the crease at the outer corner. Curl lashes and apply a thickening, lengthening mascara like Benefit They’re Real to every lash. Add individual lashes to top and bottom lash lines.
