Guest Look: Cookiefarrer

Hello, Lovelies!

My name is Cookie, and I am a makeup junkie from the sunny (and
humid!) land of Florida. With eyes that are small, and also always
hiding behind glasses, I am always looking for ways to make sure they
don’t get lost in the shuffle. I love to play around with dramatic eye
looks–and I rarely go out of the house without my usual winged
eyeliner!

One of the things I find most inspiring in makeup is the creative use
of color, and I can think of nothing more beautiful (even if it is a
little intimidating) than a cut crease. For those of us with smaller
eyes, it can really be a challenge! I have come up with an easy way to
rock this look, and I am so excited to share it with you!

GLCookieThe key to this look is to work in the reverse order, applying shadows
from lightest to darkest, mapping out exactly how much space you have
to work with. I have found that this method works for many eye shapes,
including hooded eyes and monolids. I am using some pretty vivid
colors in my version, but you can always tone it down by using
neutrals if you prefer.

    Really great tutorial. It is quite difficult working with a smaller eye shape and still getting the variations of color that you were able to achieve. Awesome!
