Glam Evening eye makeup Tutorial 💋✨💄

Today I used a range of products by Charlotte tilbury and Mac cosmetics here is the step by step make up application for you to follow to achieve the glam evening eye make up look

Step one : prep your eye area using the magic away concealer by Charlotte Tilbury This should be applied on the lids of the eyes first

Step 2 – set the eye area with a base powder / translucent powder to smooth it out

Step 3 apply palette of pops by Charlotte tilbury 4 different colours to choose from starting with the lightest colour all over the entire lid then using darker tones in the crease of the lid and in the outer corners of the eyes this achieves a smokey, glamorous evening effect . you can also use the darker tones underneath the eyes in between the lashes to give the eye more depth .

Step 3 – apply black eye liner by Mac cosmetics in colour ebony in the eye area in between the lashes at the bottom ( remember to blend it in with a brush to give a smokey look ) and in the rim of the eye and around the top lid , this gives you a starting point for the liquid liner to go on the top lid and bringing the edges out in the corner to get the cat eye effect .

Step 4 – apply CT lashes in black or mascara to top lashes and bottom

Finish with a touch of pillow talk lipstick by CT . Always go with a lighter tone Lip colour if you are doing a heavier eye make up look.

Lymphatic  drainage is also stimulated when using the stone, detoxifying the skin and reducing puffiness in the face and around the eyes. The stone can also be used  for relieving stress in the facial muscles, which seem to accumulate tension as we age. Massaging stiff facial muscles around the jaw, cheeks and forehead can be very therapeutic and helps “relax” and “lift” the face.

WHY CHOOSE AN OIL?

Every skin type can find an oil that corresponds to its wants and needs. The actions as well as the textures can vary from oil to oil.

Oils are rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids, and anti-oxidants. Just a few drops are enough to provide an absolute beauty cocktail for your skin.

Oils prevent dehydration by reinforcing the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

An oil is often concentrated in a dropper bottle to ensure quick, easy, and precise application. There is no danger of applying either too much or too little!
