Starflash Bright Eyes Look

Hi Guys,



I didn't realize how much I was going to love the eyeshadows from this collection. They are soooo easy to blend...it makes creating eyeshadow looks a lot easier. This look was really simple. It probably took about 2 minutes to do the actual eyeshadow part.


I also pulled out Feline kohl power pencil. I love how this is an intense, matte black color. Perfect for the waterline.

If you're going to wear the lustre twins, it helps if you put it on an unprimed lip. Apparently, the oils in any chapstick or lip balm will break away at the ingredients in the long last color and it won't stay as long. This means you'll have to make sure your lips are nice and exfoliated before you put that color on. After going to dinner, I noticed that the gloss portion was gone but about 75% of the lipcolor stayed...it just faded in the middle. That's pretty good after chomping away at a dinner of chips and salsa and fajitas!

For some reason, the video was a bit slow...not sure why, but I deleted a bunch of old videos and pics of my computer so hopefully that will help.




I added a fake mole for flair :)






Here's What I Used (ALL MAC UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED):

FACE
-select moisture concealer in NW37
-mineralized satinfinish foundation in NC42
-strobe cream
