What You’ll Need
Thick, long strip lashes (Ardelle products)
Lash glue (Ardelle)
High pigment bright color eye shadow pallet (green,
medium blue, pink, purple, yellow, orange).
Black gel or liquid eyeliner (L’Oreal products are great).
Liquid or mineral powder foundation
Translucent setting powder
Light Pink blush
2 Eye liner brushes (one for liner, one to paint on eye shadow color.
Power Puff or Powder Brush
(If you do not have a brush set you can use sponges to put on concealer,
foundation, and blush. You have to have the gel eyeliner brushes to paint
the colors on the eyes right. You have to have the powder puff or brush to put
on powder correctly.)
Instruction for Application
Make sure your face is clean and moisturized
Start by applying concealer under eyes in a upside down triangle, with the
flat part of triangle directly under the eye, and the point going down your
Conceal any blemishes you might have with a small amount of concealer and
Apply your liquid foundation/ or mineral foundation all over your face and
blending down into your neck, you don’t want your neck a different tone from
Set the foundation with a translucent setting powder, or all purpose
Dust the powder loosely under your eyes and across your nose and top of
cheeks. This will catch any falling eye shadow.
Get your eye color pallet. Start by drawing the outline of the shapes first
with the eye liner brush, lightly wet your brush with water. (A) The purple
square boxes in from the lower outer corner of the lash line out in a
straight line about an inch. Goes up in a straight line and comes back in to
the crease of the eye at an angle (like one side of a triangle), half way in
to the center of the eye. (B)The blue outline starts in the inner corner of
the eye up at an angle, a little in where the eyebrow is, at a point. Then
sharply comes back down to meet the outer edge of the purple square. And
comes back in, in a complete triangle back to the inner corner of the eye.
(NOTE: Steady your pinky finger into your face to help control the movement
of your hand and keep it from shaking.)
Fill in the square and triangle with the same eye color you drew the line
with, by wetting the eye liner brushes with a little water and patting the
brush into the eye color like you would water colors. Brush on in steady,
gentle strokes until the shapes are filled in.
Then add the pink eye color from the brow bone out to the corner edge of
brow. Fill in the empty space between the brow bone down to the other
colors. Blend the pink in carefully as not to disrupt the lines of the other
Put lash glue on a tooth pick and apply to the back of strip lashes. Apply
each strip lash and hold down for a few seconds so they bond to the eye.
It’s easiest to put on with tweezers.
Allow lash glue to dry. The apply the black eye liner in a thin line across
the base of the top lash line to conceal the edge of strip lashes, starting
at inner corner of lashes, out into a thin dramatic line and slightly
upwards to outer corner of lashes and a little beyond.
Next on the inner lower corner, inward to the middle of the skin on the
lower part of eye, use eye liner brush to apply the blue shadow (again
wetting it a little) and smudge.
From the very corner of the purple square take the shadow down under the
eye, stopping at the blue shadow under eye, and smudge the purple shadow.
(Try to maintain a square shape with a little bit of a curve.)
If the top strip lashes are as dramatic as the ones in the pictures above.
Do NOT put mascara on them. It will mess them up and stick them together.
With light, careful strokes, put one coat of mascara on the lower lashes.
Allow to dry.
Brush off excess powder from under the eye, on cheeks and nose. This should
brush away any fallen eye shadow and keep it from smearing into your
Next outline your lips with a lip brush, with the hot pink lipstick. Keep to
your natural lip line.
Fill in your lips with the hot pink lipstick either with the lip brush, or
the stick of lip color.
Put a slight dusting of light pink blush on the ridge of your cheek bones
and blend. Do not put on a lot, you want it to be subtle, not garish.
Brush your eyebrows with the eyebrow brush. And look in the mirror…YOU’RE
READY TO ROCK OUT!
