  • The Secrets to Eyeshadow That Lasts All Day

    Before I get into my step-by-step, I have to share my secrets to eye makeup that lasts all day.

    1. Eyeshadow primer. If you use a quality primer , your eyeshadow will stay put through rain, sweat and even the heaviest of oil slicks produced by skin.
    2. A quality eyeshadow. There are simply too many eyeshadows out there that hardly show up on the lid or if they do, they seem to disappear within a couple hours. Once you find a great pigmented shadow, you are gold.

  • 3. A dab of light color in the corner of inner eyelid. This is a makeup artist secret to brightening eyes. More on this below. Just make sure not to make it too obvious.

    4. Heat up your eyelash curler. I like to blow a burst of hot air for no more than 3 seconds onto my eyelash curler before I curl my lashes. Just make sure to test the metal on your arm before you clamp down.

  • Here’s how to apply concealer:

    • Apply three dots of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner where skin tends to be darkest, then under the pupil and the third on the outer edge.
    • Pat, never rub with your ring finger (this finger tends to have the softest pad) until the concealer disappears.

  • Line eyes as close to the upper lashes as possible from the inner corner to the outer corner. Follow with liner on bottom eyes. Smudge the bottom line with a Q-tip or your finger. You don’t want a prominent line.

    For a smokey eye, use a brush to pat in a dark eyeshadow along the upper lid and below the lid. You don’t want a stark line, instead you want to blend it so it’s "smudge-y."

  • Step 4: A Few Swipes of Eyeshadow

Eyeshadow is great because it covers up any veins in your lids and helps make your eyes pop.
For daytime, I like to use a basic light shadow on my lid and nothing else.

  • For a bit more drama, try a three-toned eyeshadow palette and build from lids to brow. You want to blend them into each other like a rainbow. Start with a light color that almost matches your lid. Sweep the color across the lid and up to your browbone. Follow with a medium color across your lid only. Build on this with a darker color in the crease. Blend the colors well.

An eyelash curler will make even long lashes look more gorgeous. For added effect, you can heat the curler under a blowdryer for a couple seconds. Test curler before applying to lashes because you could burn yourself.
