Welcome to my very first tutorial! I was contacted by Chrislie Formulations (the company that makes both Lashem and Measurable Difference products) about posting an eye makeup tutorial and I agreed! So when I received my April Starlooks’ Starbox and saw the 5 eyeshadow palette in Toyko I immediately knew what look I’d do.
I’ve never tried taking photos of my own eye while step wise putting on makeup, so please excuse any less than perfect pictures. If you like the idea of me posting more tutorials please let me know in the comments as I have a lot of ideas of tutorials from everyday looks I’ve been wearing. This look isn’t one I’d wear everyday, but it is one I have worn several times in the last week or so. It is perfect for a colorful, yet wearable spring look. Although if you live in Southern California then it is much more like Summer than Spring.

I always start with a clean face. I then went ahead and did my brows. If you’d like a post with several of the different ways I do my brows including more details on the way I mention briefly below, let me know in the comments.
I started by applying Lashem’s Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer to my entire face and eye area.
I went ahead and filled in my brows by using Starlooks Eye Primer in Clear as a base to which I added the dark brown and a touch of the black shades from Starlooks’ Eyebrow Quad that was sent in the May 2013 Starbox.
Then I prepped my eyelid with Starlooks Eye Primer in Clear which you can see I’m almost out of. Of ALL the various eye primers I’ve tried, I reach for this one the most. It is also great to use on your brows as a base for brow powder. It works great! I find it is easiest to apply using a small concealer brush.
Then I used my Starlooks Medium Precision 812 brush to pack on the light golden shade (far left #1) in the Tokyo palette in the corner of my eye through first third of my eye lid and along the first third of the lower lash line.
After that I used the Starlooks Small Precision 813 to just pick up a little of the darker green shade (second from the left #3) as it is very pigmented and lightly sweep along the crease and in the outer V which provides some depth to the look. I also swept a little down onto the lower lash line.
Lastly, for the eyeshadow portion, still using the 813 brush to pick up a bit of the matte cranberry shade (far right #4) to place in the corner of the out V on top of the darker green shade. I also continued the cranberry shade down to the lower lash line.
I then used Measurable Difference’s Lash Amplifying Liquid Eyeliner (in black) to line the upper lash line. I don’t tend to line my lower lash line with anything other than shadow very often as I find it makes my eyes look even smaller than they already are.
Then I finished by adding Measurable Differences Instant Lash Extensions Mascara. This awesome mascara really does add length and volume to my lashes. The process is a bit more time consuming than just a quick swipe of mascara. To start you first apply a coat of the mascara as a base. Then you add a coat of the white fibers which are what truly add all the length and volume. I added a very generous coat to more dramatically show the difference. Afterwards, follow up with another coat of the mascara side of the dual ended wand.
There you have it! I’d LOVE to hear what you think in the comments!
