Special Occasion Makeup Application:
Step 1: On clean moisturized skin add a small amount of face primer to cheeks, and on any dryness. Use a small amount of camouflage on any discoloration, apply with a nylon brush and press with your finger to blend. Then use a Q-Tip to apply liquid foundation on blend with a damp sponge preferably latex free. Press to blend and then gently wipe at edge of jawline to avoid any demarcation if using foundation that is slightly darker than your skin.
Step 2: Use PANDORA’S Eyelid Primer all over the eyelid with your finger blending from lash line to brows. Apply a light eye shadow all over the eyelid with a flat shader brush from the lash line to brow.
Step 3: Use either pencil or shadow to fill in brows in short strokes and feather with a clean mascara spool. Brush upwards and outwards and try to create the shape that lifts the brow and balances the look that suits your face.
Step 4: Use a Gel Pencil, or Eye Shadow wet to line the lashes, start at the outside and blend inwards towards the nose, thicker to thin outside in if you would like an almond eye or thicker to same thickness for rounder shape to eye. The bottom lashes can be lined using short strokes between the lashes to give them thickness or just at the waterline on the bottom lashes.
Step 5: Use a medium shade with a crease brush, start above the crease under the arch and blend in a semi circle motion back and forth then outwards and up. This colour should be more matte to create a crease that is higher and helps to make the eye look bigger.
Step 6: Evening … add a shimmer just at the inside corner of the eye
Step 7: Use a lash curler, hold for 10 seconds and coat the top of the top lashes and under the top lashes and from the root of the bottom lashes. Hold the lashes and slide sideways to build thickness.
Step 8: Use a lip pencil that is soft in colour and lighter than the lipstick you want to use, apply the side of the pencil onto the lip to stain and then apply lipstick with the lip brush for preciseness and for longer lasting lipstick. Lip Gloss is optional or Lipcote depending if you prefer a matte or glossy appearance.
Step 9: Use Bronzer starting from the hairline at the middle ear forward under the cheekbone then shade back and up the side of the eye.
Step 10: Use Blush and blend to the front of the cheek, also start at the hairline and smile to blend to the front of the cheek and then straight back then up close to the side of the eye.
False Eye Lashes:
To apply false eyelashes yourself you will need:
1. A package of short flare individual lashes
2. Duo Adhesive Glue in Black Waterproof
Place a small amount of glue at the base of the Eye Lash container and use the tweezers to lift the lashes and place the ball of the lash into the glue by sliding a ¼ of the lash with the glue. Then drop the base of the lashes into the root of the lash and continue placing them across until you have the look and fullness you want to achieve. They will take about a minute to set if you need to move them and the glue will start off gray and dry black.
