Eye Make-Up 101

Image found here

I love make-up, but I have to admit that I have never been great at applying it. I have always struggled with my eye make-up. From eye liner to eye shadow, I just really had no clue. My eye make-up application had two extremes-I either looked like I was wearing no eye make-up at all or I looked like I was getting ready to turn a few tricks.

When I deemed this my summer of make-overs, I resolved to learn how to better apply eye make-up. Yesterday, my wonderful Mary Kay consultant came over and gave me a great lesson on applying eye shadow and eye liner. I purchased several fun new eye shadow shades, and I couldn't be more pleased with my results. Even my husband commented on how pretty my eye make-up looked this morning! Yipeee! I'm finally getting the hang of this!

Mary Kay has a great tutorial on-line if you need an eye make-up lesson. You just choose the type of eyes you have (mine are hooded) and follow the tutorial. Also, Carmindy, from What Not to Wear, has a great website with a lot of make-up tips and tutorial videos. She even has an eye shadow tutorial video.

On another note, don't forget to enter my give-away! You could win these ultra cute bowls!!!! Hurry! The deadline is Tuesday! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

P.S.-Blogger is still not cooperating with me, so I am still unable to comment on your posts! I hope this will be resolved soon! Until then, please know that I am still reading!

I didn't know how to really apply shadow until I had my first Mary Kay makeover. That was 10 years ago (or maybe more) and I ended up selling MK for a while and taught a group of 22 high school girls how to wear shadow & eyeliner correctly. They really do know their application process!!! XOXO

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a problem with eye makeup! I always try to do the smokey eyes and always end up looking dumb.

Oh I'll have to check out those links! I'm not terrible at the eye makeup thing, but I'm definitely not good at it!

Honey, ten thousand THANK YOUs for the eyeshadow how-to link!

I'm make-up challenged and am all in awe of this sight! Think your MK gal would do a road trip to NC to teach me the ways of glamor?
