How to create this eye:

  1. Line eyes with a black liquid liner – do the line quite thick, following your eye shape.
  2. Take a deep blue eye pencil and trace just above the black liner & underneath eye.
  3. Apply a powder shadow in deep shimmery blue on top of the pencil liner, blending all over lid, up to crease and out into a cat eye shape.
  4. Frame & lift the eye by filling in your brows; use short light strokes to create a nice arch, then set by combing through with a brow gel.

Succulent Lip Twin in Opal Orchid at: http://www.pixibeauty.com/lips/succulent-lip-twin  

How to create this eye: 

  1. Use a concealer kit to even out skintone all around the eye, brighten inner and outer corners of eye, and apply a shimmery cream on brow bones and cheeks.
  2. Apply a flesh-toned eye shadow to eyelid – try to match your skintone or a shade lighter; shimmer always looks good.
  3. Curl lashes before applying liquid liner, and apply several coats of black lengthening mascara.
  4. Now line upper lash line by making dots following your eye shape, and then simply connect the dots!
