1. The Barbie Doll Look
Feeling playful? Create a Barbie Doll look with a grown up twist! Perfect for a black or silver dress with rhinestone accessories. Use a white eyeshadow all over the lid as the base and pat glittery eyeshadow on top. Select a taupe-y brown and apply this to the outer corners of the eyes and sweep it into the crease. Make sure to blend well. Line the upper lash line with black liquid or gel eyeliner and wing it out for a sexy cat eye effect. If you're feeling a little daring, add more drama to the eyes by applying heavy false lashes with sparkly rhinestones attached to them. Top off the look with your favorite pink blush and lipstick.
2. The Eye-Catcher
Want your eyes to be the center of attention? Creating a vampy cat eye look with nude lips and cheeks for a sexy Maxim Magazine look. Perfect for a red hot, white, or nude colored dress. To create that sharp angled edge, take a piece of tape and line it parallel with your bottom lash line. Select a grey or silver eyeshadow and apply it over the eye lids. Take a slightly shimmering or matte black color and apply it to the outer corners of the eyes. Slightly blend the colors together. Next, take a frosty white eyeshadow and apply it to the inner corners of the eyes to highlight and bring light into them. Pat a small amount of the same color to the center of the eyes for a touch of add dimension and pop. Add false lashes and optional rhinestones to the outer corners of the eyes. FInish off the look with nude pink lips and soft pink blush.
3. Kissable Sexy Red Lips
Get ready to turn heads with this sexy look! Perfect for almost any outfit. Especially with a black or red dress! Start out by creating a smokey eye. The key to creating the perfect smokey eye is all about blending. BLEND BLEND BLEND! Select a nude colored eyeshadow as your base. Take your favorite brown or black eyeshadow and apply it to the outer corners of the eyes and blend into the crease. Highlight the brow bone with a light vanilla colored eyeshadow and highlight the inner corners of the eyes with a shimmering white or champagne color. For kissable lips, make sure to gently exfoliate and put on a moisturizing lip balm. Select your favorite red lipstick and apply it with a lip brush for a crisp clean finish. Top off the cheeks with an apricot colored blush.
