TGIF: Swept Away & Your Valuable Feedback Is Needed (Entry #3)

Swept Away is a romantic beach-y look that is perfect for summer nights out. This look will give eyes a youthful lift, and make eyes standout beautifully in photographs.

Photo 1. The finished look. The mascara and eyeliner dramatically defines my eye: notice how my eye appears larger. (Sorry for the half face photo; I was in a sporting accident and my concealer couldn't hide the bruise.)

I.) Create this Fun Chic Look:

Photo 5. Close up of the ultra plush and smooth eye shadows: Sapphire Siren (#20) and Irresistibly Ivy (#90)

1.) Highlight – Sapphire Siren palette: apply the lightest shade on the brow bones, and lower lash line to make the eyes standout. 
2.) Brighten – switch to the Irresistibly Ivy palette and apply the lightest shade on the entire eye lid and inner corner of eyes.
3.) Accentuate – still using the Irresistibly Ivy palette glide the second shade across the eye lid.  Start in the inner corner of the eyes and stop in the middle.  Then layer this color on lower lash line over the highlight hue but do not mask the highlight color.
4.) Enhance – switch to the Sapphire Siren palette and add the second hue on the outer corner of the eyes and bring the color inwards to the middle of the lid. This step will give the eyes more depth.
5.)  Deepen –  still using the Sapphire Siren palette, apply the third color to the hollow area of the outer eye and then sweep outwards.

B.) Gel Eyeliner: In Charcoal (#954)
1.)  Define  – using a steady hand line the entire top and bottom waterline, which will also give the appearance of thicker and fuller lashes. Extending the line 1cm beyond the outer corner of the eyes will give the illusion of bigger eyes.

C.) Mascara: XXL Pro Extensions Washable Mascara
1.) Lengthen  – curl your lashes then apply formula #1 followed by #2 for long and beautiful lashes.

Now you're done! Good luck. :)  And thanks for reading!

I saw these palettes on sale at RCSS for $10.99. It's a great deal! I picked up two; the gold and purple.
