Thanks to Sephora inside JCPenney for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions in the post are my own.
Eyes are the most captivating feature of one’s face, they speak a thousand words and put our inner feelings and emotions out into the world. And eye makeup not only compliments the face but also enhances one’s beauty even further.
You will very rarely find me without any eye makeup and even if it’s going out for a quick run or running an errand I always have some kind of eye shadow on. I am a fan of bright, bold eyes and love to play with colors and experiment. Almost every time there is a party or a dinner outing, one of my friends in NY will say that she loves my eye makeup.
We all know that applying eye makeup is nothing short of a skill, and maybe even a daunting skill to acquire according to some. But don’t you worry, I assure you that anyone and everyone can master the art in no time. You might be thinking, ‘but who has time for eye makeup?’. Let’s just say that by following these 5 simple tips, you won’t need to spend more than 5 minutes to do your eyes.
First and foremost, as I mentioned in this post, always apply makeup beginning with your eyes. Fixing any smudges or making any adjustments later with a foundation is not only easy but also saves ample amount of time.
Start with an eye shadow primer like the 24+ hours, water-, crease-, and fade-proof Shadow Insurance eye primer from Too Faced. The primer not only creates a smooth surface but also helps your eye makeup stay put all day long. When it comes to primer, less is more. Squeeze a little onto your index or middle finger and gently dab it across the eye lids.
When it comes to makeup, choosing the right shade for eyeshadow is key to make or break your look. Not only that, the right shade also amps up your eye color. This versatile new Just Peachy Matte eye shadow palette from Too Faced is a perfect pick-me-up to achieve just that. For starters, peach is a great color which looks amazing on anyone and everyone as the mix of undertones suits any skin tone. And using the Just Peachy Matte eye shadow palette alone, you can create a neutral look for the day and a more vibrant or smokey look for the night.
Use the right brushes based on the look you are trying to achieve – from an all-over-eye-shadow brush to a blending brush to an angled brush to a smudger. And as with any makeup application, blend, blend, blend.
And to finish off your look or to add more drama, don’t forget the eye liner and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. And last but not the least, remember to enhance your eyebrows (something I neglected for a long, long time). Check out this post to learn more about my complete skincare and makeup routine.
See, that wasn’t as complicated and time-consuming as you thought! And as far as the Just Peachy Matte eye shadow palette goes, it’s from Too Faced’s newest Peaches & Cream collection. This 12 shade matte palette of buttery creams, peaches and browns not only makes you look beautiful on the outside but the ingredients it is made with: peach and sweet fig cream are known to be packed with vitamins and antioxidants (makeup products that come with skincare benefits, yes please, duh!). This palette is available only at Sephora and Sephora inside JCPenney (they sure know the way to a women’s heart!).
