The Eyes Have It

by cecylia on May 24, 2013

For the longest time I thought that I should be banned from wearing eye shadow. Just as some who’d never wear skinny jeans, or be caught in public in Ugg boots, polar fleece, or tracksuits. It’s not that I don’t like eye shadow, it’s just that it’s an unrequited love. Smearing layers of metallic powder on my mammoth monolids always resulted in me looking half-drag or like I’d been punched in the face by the Silver Surfer or something. So if you came to rob our house today, you can search high and low, rummaging every corner of our humble abode, and you will not find a single eye shadow lurking in the, excuse the pun, shadows. But thankfully, the Master of Makeup, Dean Nixon, beauty columnist for the Herald Sun, came to my rescue. Being the understanding and knowledgeable makeup maestro he is, he taught me that we can all wear eye shadow beautifully, with the aid of a blending brush and a few tips on contouring. I hope you enjoy the video and get lots of beauty application insights from Dean to practise at home!

Such a good video! The only time I have done a smokey eye for myself was a friend’s wedding, and that was using a little kit my bestie gave me that had instructions!

The hardest part for me is getting both eyes to look the same – so tricky as you can’t review them both at the same time properly, one eye always needs to be open, haha. I guess I just need to practice more so it’s easy to achieve without even looking ;)

woah yeah i didn’t even think of that- symmetry is the key isn’t it! That’s like another level up :D I can’t wait to practise this look more in the future too! Practise makes perfect :D
