I was really happy to get such a positive response on my yesterday's little gradient manicure tutorial. Thank you! =) I'm continuing with a mini make up tutorial which is a bit different this time 'cause it's made with the so called Eye Majic instant eye shadow. These eye shadows come in matte and pearl finishes and they also offer leopard print eye shadows. Not sure how that would look, but tastes differ. You can find out more about it on Eye Majic website.
I used Eye Majic in Pearl Shade 16 - Silk Indulgence.
The directions on the box say to simply place the applicator on the eyelid, press it gently for a couple of seconds and then gently slide it towards the outer corner of your eye. That's it. I find that a bit too shabby, so here's how I do it:
1 - Prepare your eyelid by applying a primer or an eyeshadow base.
2 - Place the applicator on your lid and press gently. Slide it towards the outer corner.
3 - Blend out the edges with an eyeshadow brush. Use the brush to transfer some of the eyeshadow on your lower eyelid as well.
4 - Fill in your brows.
5 - Apply eye liner on your upper eyelid and waterline.
6 - Apply mascara.
And this is how the finished make up looks like.
So, how do you like the look?
I must say I'm not too crazy about these instant eye shadow thingies. I think you can do your make up quicker, better and cheaper by using a good old eye shadow and a brush. Besides, once you apply this eye shadow, you still have to blend it out so you don't really save that much time. In my opinion the MU with these shadows looks ugly until you do the blending anyway. Not for me. Have you tried Eye Majic? What are your experiences with it?
Thanks for looking and commenting!
