6 Eye Shadows As Face Highlighters

I've mentioned in previous videos that they are many eyeshadows that can work as face highlighters. Well, in this video, starting from the least of my favorites to the greatest, I show some shadows that can work well in that capacity.

have such a nice luminescent shimmer to them that
would be great for night-time looks. I want this in

rose quartz), Noir Precieux 04 (purplish black), &
Argent 25 (silver). These are $14.00 each at ULTA.com.

2 Evening Makeup Looks

Note: Foundation & Powder application is considered a given.

Look #1 - Dramatic Eyes

This is my favorite because I always like emphasizing my eyes.

You'll Need:
  • A monochromatic or similar colors eye-shadow quad
    (or at least a trio) with a medium shade, a light shade,
    & a dark shade (e.l.f.'s brightening eye color quads are great)
  • Blackest Volume & Lengthening Mascara You've Got (L'Oreal's Volume Shocking is perfect for that VaVaVoom effect)
  • Black Eyeliner
  • A subtle blush
  • A neutral (pinky-nude) lipgloss (e.l.f.'s moisture care lipgloss in natural blush is the perfect pinky-nude)
Your Look:
  • Prep your lids (primer or foundation & powder)
  • Cover your entire lid with the medium shade
  • Using dark color, contour on sides & in crease for dramatic depth
  • Using light color, highlight your lid directly in the center
    (to draw attention to your eye color)
  • Using light color, highlight your brow bone & the inner corner of your eye
  • Apply your black eyeliner & a coat or 2 of mascara
  • Apply & blend blush on to apples of cheeks
  • Swipe a coat of pinky-nude gloss on your lips & that's it!

Look #2 - Intense Lips
Intense, full lips are always sexy.

You'll Need:
  • A lip brush (e.l.f. has a variety
    of brushes & tools to choose from)
  • Tissue to blot
  • An intense shade of lipstick that
    goes well with your skin tone
  • A sheer neutral eyeshadow
  • A subtle blush
  • liner & mascara
  • (Optional) lipgloss
Your Look:
  • Prep your lips (whichever way you do it)
  • Using your lip brush, apply a layer of intense lip color
  • Blot with a piece of tissue & apply another layer
  • Repeat, if necessary
  • (Optional) Apply gloss to center of bottom lip then smack
    them both together, Now you've got an even fuller pout

  • Apply a sheer wash of neutral color on the eyes
  • Apply & blend blush on to apples of cheeks
  • Apply liner & mascara
  • Using a retractable lip brush, grab some of the lip color, retract the brush & toss it into your bag for touch ups on the go
And there you go, 2 beautiful & dramatic evening makeup looks!
