The Eyes Have It

8 Feb

Every award season you can count on celebrities bringing their A game, or team we should say. The stars have glam squads to dress and decorate them for awards season, while the rest of us watch in awe. This year the ladies of the red carpet have focused on one feature more than any other, the eyes.  Just Google Emma Stone, Frieda Pinto, or Sarah Michelle Gellar, and you’ll find elaborate smoky eyes and bold liner with minimal makeup accompaniment. So we decided to create a signature Scentsa eye, perfect for the red carpet. To create this look we used shades from the Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV palette.

Step 1) Begin with an eye primer, and apply a shimmery neutral base all over the eye and beneath the brow bone. Using a medium eye shadow brush, blend a dark purple shadow into the crease. Blend the shadow upwards and along the outer corner of the upper lash line.

Step 2) Using a medium eye shadow brush, apply a light gold, shimmery eye shadow to the inner corner of your eyelid and blend out to the center of your lid.

Step 3) Using a thin eyeliner, brush a line on the bottom lash line with a navy eye shadow starting just after the inner corner and creating a small wing at the outer corner of the eye. Apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes. We used Sephora Lash Plumper in black.

Step 4) Finish the look with a neutral lip gloss and bronze cheeks.
