Coworkers’ Compliments

I admire any woman who can give another a compliment, which is why I love the ladies I work with. They have come to truly appreciate my eye makeup routine and have proceeded to inquire how I play up my eyes. Thus, I have compiled my day-time, go-to look. These colors are universally flattering as I have used them on many friends for different events. They are (in order of application):

1. MAC eye shadow in Vanilla. Sweep over entire eye. I bring it all the way up to eyebrows.

2. NARS The Multiple in Orgasm


I use this stick for eyes, lips, and cheeks. This color looks good on everyone, and is one of their most popular items.

Rub finger onto color, then, using your ring finger to apply (because most gentle), blend in lightly over lid to crease. You want to put it on after using the vanilla, because if you don’t have a powder underneath, it will crease more easily throughout the day.

3. MAC Gorgeous Gold

Blend this gold over mostly the center of the lid. Light will reflect off of the center of your lids, making your eyes sparkle, but not in a nightclub-over-doing-it way

4. MAC eye shadow in Trax

Using a smaller brush, preferably one with a slanted edge, sweep Trax over the crease and outer corner of eye, in a half-moon shape. Start sparingly, because with MAC, a little goes a long way, and it is far easier to add more, then to take away. Measure twice-cut once!

The smaller the brush the smaller the crease will be which is useful when you’re not sure how much you want to use.

5. MAC’s Espresso


For the eyeliner, you can either use just black eyeliner, or what I like to do a lot of times to spice things up, is apply a little eyeliner on both upper and lower lids, then take a color such as MAC’s Espresso, or any dark brown will do. Using a slanted small brush, blend the Espresso-like color over black liner. It will make your eyes pop, and it will stay so much longer because of the liner underneath. It’s like secret glue!



6. Lash Blast by Cover Girl in Very Black

Lastly…my life-saver… mascara. I have been loving this one lately! Use until you’re happy!
