Poofy Cheeks: Tutorial Thursday {Eye Shadow}

Tutorial Thursday {Eye Shadow}

`My sister, Lindsay, is four years younger than me. I remember when I was like her and obsessed with makeup. Those were the days before children when I actually had time to primp and fuss with how I looked. Nowadays I usually throw my hair in a bun and put on eyeliner. No time for much else!

Anyways – I invited Lindsay to show us mommas (and anyone else who wants to know!) how to apply makeup once again! I think after time goes by we forget what works and doesn’t! We forget which colors blend – and which colors look best! Lindsay is going to be sharing a photo post with us each week!

A little about Lindsay – she is my sister! She is kind and patient. She is going to school to be a nurse (god bless her because I could never do it!). She is a social butterfly. She works hard and parties hard too! Lindsay is fun and free spirited. She is blonde and beautiful. She is after all – My Sister!

Follow her HERE on Tumblr! Fair warning that things can get PG-13 over there, but she is always posting fashion stuff and her newest makeup!

First she starts out by using Blackground Paint Pot by Mac. Does black scare you? It scares me! I’m always afraid I’ll end up looking like I got punched in the eye!

Like I said – Lindsay is blonde. Without makeup you can not see her eyebrows. Back up! Stop the tape! Rewind! Time to put on the eyebrows!

For her eyebrows she uses her Mac eyebrow pencil.

How about now? Okay- now that the eyebrows are here let us continue.

After applying the black paint pot she uses a brown/teal color called Club by Mac . She applies it in the crease and gently pulls it down onto the black shadow with her brush.

After that she uses Steamy by Mac which is a blue/teal color over the top of the brown.

Club is the third one to the right on the bottom row.

Then she applies a white color called Crystal Avalanche by Mac. Crystal Avalanche is the second one to the right on the top row.

After that she applies eyeliner to the bottom lid, liquid eyeliner to the top lid, and mascara.

Then my friends she is done! Lovely eyes for a night out on the town or a mommy/daddy date night!
