Party eyes with piz­zazz

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

“tis the sea­son to be jolly… and glam­orous … and sassy.

The prob­lem is that some­times peo­ple mis­tak­enly think that hav­ing a strong party look means look­ing like an ex­tra from Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

I per­son­ally think there is a very thin line be­tween gor­geous, strong party make up and look­ing like a drag queen.

Drag queens look amaz­ing in their own right but you can cre­ate a great strong look while keep­ing it fem­i­nine and classy.

And the fas­ci­na­tion for face con­tour­ing? Only con­tour your face within an inch of its life if you’re in a pro­fes­sional pho­to­graphic stu­dio.

Oth­er­wise, a soft wear­able pow­der con­tour works per­fectly and keeps you look­ing fem­i­nine. You don’t have to paint stripes all over your face, I prom­ise!

OK, with that out of my sys­tem it’s time to talk party eyes with piz­zazz.

I re­cently cre­ated a fab­u­lous party look for a client. We loved it and you can do your own version for a big night out if you really want to stand out from the crowd.

My client loves really strong eyes so I try to think up new ideas for her when she comes to the stu­dio.

On this oc­ca­sion she was wear­ing a bright lime green dress so we didn’t want any­thing too dark for shadow.

I used a strong turquoise shadow in the crease and cor­ners of her eyes, teamed up with a dark navy liner.

But what really made this look dif­fer­ent was, that af­ter I ap­plied a strong flicked gel liner, I used gem stones and ap­plied them about 1/2 a pinky width apart right along the en­tire gel liner, in­ner cor­ner to outer flick.

I also used strip lashes so that when she looked down it ac­tu­ally looked like lit­tle studs.

Her eyes didn’t have the sparkly look you’d ex­pect, more like the lit­tle sil­ver studs you’d find on your hand­bag. It was very cool. So get glam­or­is­ing those eyes this party sea­son, you never know whose glance you might catch un­derneath the mistle­toe.
