  • Use both primer & foundation to create the perfect base.
  • Cover any imperfections with your favorite concealer.
  • Use an all-in-one palette to highlight, contour, and add a rosy flush.
  • Set your complexion with a quick dusting of sheer powder. Our favorite is the Studio Pro HD Powder.
  • Prime lids, then create an easy smokey eye: Use a light shade on your brow bone, apply a mid-tone shadow to your crease and lower lash line, then blend a deep hue from the outer corners of your lid to your crease.
  • Define and set your brows using a brow pencil and a quick sweep of gel. We love using the Studio Pro HD Brow Pencil with Flawless Brow Gel in “Clear”.
  • Use your favorite liquid liner to create the perfect cat eye. Try BH Liquid Eyeliner.
  • To amp up the drama, apply false lashes (plus a couple coats of mascara). These “Sassy” lashes are to die for. 
  • Line your lips & apply your favorite lipstick shade
  • Give your look all-day staying power with a makeup setting spray. The Studio Pro Makeup Setting Spray works wonders!

Colors For Your Eyes Only

Want to enhance your eye color for a look that really pops? It’s as easy as using shades of shadow that are complementary and analogous (similar) to your own color!

For example, brown eye colors generally have an orange-yellow undertone. On a color wheel, the analagous colors for brown have yellow and orange undertones—think brown, gold, and copper shades. The complementary colors for brown eyes have blue or violet undertones—like purple and plum. To find the best shades for your own unique eye color, pick up a color wheel at your local art supply store or find one online.

Use our guide below to help you create the perfect makeup combination to make your gorgeous eyes stand out among the crowd. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
