Hey Guys, you know I’ve spent a little time having my hair and makeup done ; ) and I wanted to share with you some tips on how to get a smoky eye and wavy hair that you can use for New Year’s Eve. My make-up artist Kelsey James, does a great smokey eye that you could try for tomorrow night. Please watch the step-by-step video on how to get a smoky eye that is simple and you can do yourself. I also show you how to create a super simple beach wave hair style. Enjoy and have a safe and happy New Year!
For a smokey eye:
Apply a primer from lash line to brow.
Use a neutral taupe eyeshadow in the socket of your eye. The fluffier the brush, the better.
Take a kohl pencil and sketch in where you want the darker area to be.
Apply a corresponding dark shadow over the kohl pencil.
Use a metallic cream eyeshadow on the inner corner and the eyelid.
Place a black liner on the inner rim of your eye.
Softly smudge the pencil and shadow on the lower lash line.
Apply false lashes and mascara.
For beach waves:
Medium size curling iron suggested
Use curling iron to flaten out the roots
Wrap hair around curling iron
Count to ten
Pull curl out
Stretch the hair
Shake each curl with your hand up a bit and you have the beach wave
Use smaller hair straighten iron for small pieces near your face
Get really small sections of your hair in the front
Get close to root and turn while you do it ( shown in video)
This gives you more volume
Don’t wrap the last piece of your hair
This gives it a more natural look
Spray hair spray around your hair
**For a more intense volume flip your hair over and spray with hair spray and flip back up
