All About Eyes - A Fun, New Year's Party Look

Products Used:
Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Palette - Storm (matte black & metallic grey), Circus (matte magenta & metallic purple) and Sunset (metallic sky blue)
Annabelle Cosmetics Hype Liquid Liner - Mystic Black
L'oréal Voluminous Mascara - Black

I wanted to create something fun for a New Year's Eve party look. After all, having fun is what its all about, pretty much :p. To start off (after filling in my brows), I took some tape (surgical tape was the closest to me, but I don't recommend it. It's much too tacky) and applied it on a diagonal, like so:

I wanted a more severe line, especially since I was going to add colour beneath it. Once you've added your tape, you can start with the eyeshadow. I first applied matte black eyeshadow all over the lid and once I got to the taped area, I applied it inwards so that I don't accidentally get any product under the tape. Then I applied the metallic grey shadow on top; I wanted a deeper grey so applying the black eyeshadow first as a base allows that.

Once that's done, remove the tape. Make sure to be careful and do it gently! We don't want tape burns on our lovely faces, now do we? :p

When you've removed the tape, you're left with the above photo: a nice, neat edge. Afterwards, I mixed the matte magenta and metallic purple together (I literally just dipped my Sigma pencil brush on one shadow then dipped it on the next) and applied it all along the lower lash line and under the black/silver edge, making sure to leave a tiny bit of space between the two edges.

Next up, I applied the metallic sky blue colour closer to the lash line than the magenta/purple. I used an eyeliner brush for this because I wanted a neater line (the magenta/purple combo is more smoky while the blue is a straight up line). Then I liner the upper lash line with Mystic Black (sparkly, perfect for an NYE bash!) and used the matte black to line the lower water line. Lastly, I applied a few generous coats of mascara. Of course, you can wear false lashes instead, which I would recommend more unless you're blessed with gorgeous ones to begin with (in which case, I hate you you're LUCKY!). You can even add some glitter along the inner corner or all along the eyelid; the more drama, the better!

Hope you lovelies like this look
have a safe and fun New Year's Eve!
