Shadow

Someone on my Formspring requested a tutorial on how to make eyes look bigger/longer. This is a very basic tutorial relying on contouring tricks to make eyes look more doe-like. I am sadly bereft of large luminous eyes, or deep set cat-eyes, both excessively gorgeous and am therefore immensely jealous of. This tutorial makes your eyes look larger in a 'round' kind of way, think 1920's. I think I'll do another one for faux-ing the cat shape.



Leave the rest of your make-up very bare - finish with a clean base of foundation, mascara and minimal blush - stick to a light contour. Use a matte peach lipstick, and brush your brows upwards.

  5. I wish I could do make up - I REALLY can't, so I don't wear any at all.
