Often case, they say to speak with your eyes - they provide a channel for connection, acknowledgement, and possibly even intimacy.
The point is, you better prep your eyes before they speak.
I usually start my day with outlining my under-eye with a non-glittery brown eye shadow (from Stila), just to give the illusion that it is wide awake for the day. Afterwards, if I'm feeling lazy, I'd skip the cat-eye and just go for a subtle blush glitter eye-shadow (Also from my Stila palette). To top this day-look I'd curl my lashes with Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler then three-four coats of black mascara, top and bottom lashes. Skip the bottom lashes if you want to avoid looking like a manga doll.
At night, or when I'm going out during the day to meet people, I'd be more daring with the choices I make in terms of color and subtlety. I've recently purchased a beautiful eye-shadow color called "Peacock" from the Ardency Inn collection (available only from Sephora or the Ardency Inn Website). It gives off the look of iridescent-ness with shades of turquoise and slight pink--basically, super funky and cool. I've been using it almost every time I go out; it makes my eyes stand out with its extreme long-lasting pigments, even in the midst of a dark and crowded venue like Pacha.
The photos above are just some eye makeup inspiration I'd like to share along with some recommendations below:
Towards the end of August, I have relocated from Jakarta to New York City after graduating from high school. Right now I'm pursuing my undergraduate studies in the city. Just letting you know, I will be posting more beauty reviews and some pictures that might just inspire your beauty looks (as soon as finals are over).
For now, enjoy some of these photos from my Instagram account. Feel free to follow me, and if you have a question, you can also personally email me.
