Adorned Rockstar Eyes!

Here's a cool look I created inspired by Jessie J! I decided to through my own twist on it by adding edgy rhinestones!

1 Apply foundation all over and concealer in areas of concern. Set with a translucent powder.
2 Buff a matte bronzer on the apples of the cheeks and back through to the temples and hairline. This look focuses on the eyes and lips so keep the cheeks quite neutral.
3 Pat eyeshadow primer all over the lid and then sweep a neutral eyeshadow similar to your skin tone all over the lid as a base to help your dark shadows blend easily.
4 Press a black shadow onto the outer corner of the eye and blend it across the lid three quarters of the way in. Connect the black shadow on the outer corner of the eye and bring it tight along the lower lash line. Pressing the shadow onto the lid means stronger colour pay off and less fall out.
5 Blend a warm brown shadow into the crease to warm up the very cool tones you have been using thus far.
6 Use your nude matte shadow to blend around all of the edges of your shadow to create a smooth gradation of colour and perfectly blended edges.
7 Rim your upper and lower waterline (inside the eye) with a black pencil making sure to wrap around through your inner corners. Lightly coat your upper lashes with mascara.
8 Use a black liquid liner to draw small dots (getting larger toward the outside of the eye) along the lower lashline.
9 Use eyelash adhesive to glue small black rhinestones along the upper lashline. Dot black liquid liner close to the inner corner of the eye.
10 Apply false lashes by waiting for the glue to dry for 30 seconds before placing the lash in the centre and then tucking in your edges.
11 Apply a rich red lip colour to the lips to finish it all off!

  1. I love the rhinestones! Would you recommend the Makeup Forever Strass Rhinestones?

  2. Honestly I think they're way over priced. However, the colour that I used is really hard to find and that's why I thought it was worth the splurge!

  3. gorgeous look! Love the rhinestones, it made all look a lot more rockier! And the dots on the lower lashline..... gosh I love them!
