Here's how to get the look:

  • Use black gel pencil along lash line. Subtly smudge the liner.
  • Blend brown eye shadow into crease of the eye.
  • Brush glitter shadow over entire lid.
  • Add a little extra oomph to your lashes with customizable glue-ons.
  • When lashes are applied, clamp with eye-lash curler. Finish with mascara.

Sonia’s Tips:

  • When applying the liner, get as close to the lash line as possible by pulling up a little on the skin of the eyelid.
  • Use a very small amount of glue on the fake lashes.  They can be re-used. When you are done, pull them off carefully and store them for next time.
