Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Casey B >> 9/28/2015 >>

When trying to make your eyes appear larger, there are a few steps you can take to help accentuate this. 
  • First, apply a medium dark brown that is 1-2 shades darker than your skin tone, directly into the crease. (See video below for correct placement)

I have been wanting to try this out for a long time now. I have I heard really great things. But I am so stuck in my old ways. I always find something I like and am scared to take a leap, shell out the cash and try something new. This time I decided to take a leap and just do it. I needed a new Primer anyway since I have used up all of mine on my lovely brides and their parties this summer.

After watching several YouTube reviews and reading a ton of Blog reviews, I decided I should just try it. So I did it! 

I am really happy I did! I was super happy with the outcome and just how great my skin looked. Generally I reach for Smashbox, which is more of a gel formula. The Lock It primer is more of a lotion style. 

I feel like my face looked more flawless after a day of wear with this as the base VS when I use no primer. 

In the video below, I try it out for the first time. In addition to wearing it all day and then giving my review at the end. Check it out to see the results!

Colourful Liner

Casey B >> 8/17/2015 >>
Sometimes it just a classic cat eye or winged liner look just isn't enough, and we want more, without really adding too much more. Adding a bright liner before your black liner will achieve a peek-a-boo effect allowing you to rock fun bright colours no matter the occasion. 

Here I have added a vibrant purple. So vibrant, in fact, the camera makes it look like blue pen ink. To see how I got this look, click the video below for a full, quick minute tutorial.

Cotton Candy Eyes

I recently picked up a new palette that is super bright, very pigmented and inspirational. It made me want to rush to my makeup room and create about a hundred different looks.  Its the Take Me to Brazil palette from BH Cosmetics.
