Maintenance: My Eyes

eyemaintenance.jpgHere’s an overview of my normal, daily eye routine in six easy steps.
Step 1: Prime lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and cover dark under eye circles with Benefit Boi-ing concealer in Lite.
Step 2: Apply base color in Clinique ‘Like Mink’ Eye Shadow Duo over entire lid and brow bone. Then apply darker shade above lash line and into crease.
Step 3: Line just above top lash line with Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black Brown. I draw a thin line and extend it out a little at the outer corners. Then I line my lower lashes with a thin line too.
Step 4: Using the tip of an eyeshadow sponge, I smudge a bit of the darker eye shadow into the lower lash liner to make a slightly smokey and softer effect.
Step 5: Use Benefit Brow Zings in Light to fill in my blonde brows. I only use the wax section of the compact because it seems like the powder is a little too heavy for my coloring.
Step 6: Apply a coat of mascara to upper and lower lashes. My current fave is Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black.
And that’s it! So far the products I am most devoted to are the Primer Potion, Revlon eyeliner and Brow Zings. All three are the best I have tried (and I have tried a TON) in their category. Especially wonderful is the eyeliner since you can pick it up at any drugstore and it works better than liners double its price. I regularly try different eye shadow compacts in neutral colors and have a habit of trying a new mascara formulation every time a tube runs dry. Let me know some of your beloved eye makeup products and tips in the comment section!

    Wow, that’s a lotta products to use every day.

    I’d love to see before & after shots to see how dramatic the transformation is…

    I agree with Sara, I’d love to see before and after shots!

    Is that a lot? I guess it doesn’t seem like it to me since I love playing around with makeup and I don’t put it on too heavy. I’m working on pics right now so they be up soon if I can get it to work!

    I usually rub my eyes and slap on my glasses and I’m good to go!

    Don’t lie Mike…I know you secretly play with Jina’s makeup before she gets up. 🙂

    Are your eyelash that great with just the Dior or do you curl them too. Love the before and after, very helpful and you look beautiful.

    Thank you Diane! I actually don’t curl my eyelashes. The Diorshow is a curling, volumizing and lengthening formula and I think it does all three very well.
