How to get VA VA Voom Lashes & Pink Lips

Friday, March 11, 2011

I stopped by Beauty High for a little makeup application 101 and thought I would share!  When applying your makeup look, many of us choose to play up just one thing - our eyes, lips, or even cheeks. Sticking to this route, we're of course in love with the latest va-va-voom lash look, with pale pink lips to match. This sex kitten style can be quite simple once you master the task of false lashes. Although daunting to some, others find them to be addicting, and a simple tube of mascara can never again add up.
Step 1: Apply eyelid primer on your lid, blending all the way up to your brow bone.
Step 2: Dust a natural colored shadow over the lid.
Step 3: Add a bit of contour with a darker shade in the crease. This keeps the look natural but adds a bit of shadow.
Step 4: Using a black eyeliner pencil, line along the lash line as close as possible to the top lash line and work it in with a smudger. Then line along the inner rim to increase the intensity of the black line.
Step 5:Curl your lashes and then size the false lashes to your eye. Hold up the lashes and start where your normal lashes start. You don't want them to go too far, so you'll want to trim them to fit. Don't assume that both eyes will be the same size!
Step 6: Let the glue sit on the lashes for a few seconds so it gets tacky, then glue them at the base of your natural lashes facing downward. Hold the corners in place until the glue sets.
Step 7: Re-line lash line with liquid liner to help blend in lashes and apply mascara.
Step 8: Use your concealer and blot your lips to ensure that the color will last on your lips, and then apply a chapstick to hydrate.
Step 9: Apply lipstick using an applicator brush to get directly to the lip line and finish with a gloss for extra shine.

I'm not much of a fake eyelash wearer in the daytime, but I will definitely try this out! I think the neutral eyes soften it up a bit

Wow! I do much of this beauty routine already! While I don't need lashes since my own are so long, every once in awhile I like to change things up and be a little daring by going longer or with feathers just to be fun and create fun looks!

This look is so simple but so pretty! Its a great spin on the vintage make-up look so it doesn't make you feel like its tired or costume-y. LOVE.

I haven't tried false eyelashes yet but I do love the trick about lining as close as you can to your lashes but then smudging downwards into your lashes. I have blonde eyelashes so this is especially important for me. It's really hard to get the mascara all the way back to the eyelid, so smudging that eyeliner is imperative or you can see the difference between my eyelashes and my eyelid.

With Lashes&Pink Lips You Just Can't Go Wrong.! I actually wear falsies every single day, and I've been wearing them for about 4 years now. I am in LOVE with them,and Pink or Nude lips always look amazing, it gives you a beautiful natural look I love Elf's mineral lipsticks in Nicely Nude and Natural Nymph,they are both perfect for either a soft pink or nude lip look. I also always wing my eyeliner, after applying it over my lashes and it just gives a sexier more dramatic eye look, for that I usually wear Elf's Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, and Elf's Studio Cream Eyeliner. The products are amazing!

This is pretty much my everyday look, minus the false lashes. I have yet to quite master that technique, but I'm slowly working on it :)

It reminds me of Brigitte Bardot or Tippi Hedren! So beautiful, classy and elegant. The makeup is full, but it stays together without looking too made up.
