Hi Guys and Dolls! I hope you’re all having a great week! Does anyone have any awesome weekend plans? I’m going to be working though Sunday, but after that I’m on “Staycation” for a week and a half. YAY! I’m so excited to have a Saturday off I could squeel! Anyhooters- My mom recently gave me a ton of magazines that she and my sister had already devoured, and browsing though the MAY 2011 issue of Teen Vogue I came across this picture of Adele:
Hot-sauce right? I’m quite musically in love with Adele right now, so I’ve been meaning to do a tutorial inspired by her, and when I saw this I said “Bingo”! I modified the look slightly to suit my eye shape and preferences, but note that I didn’t do a full-crease with this one- I love this shape of makeup because it works on most every eye-shape, but if you have a more prominent lower lid I would suggest making the liner a bit thicker. This is so sexy, easy and widely flattering I challenge you all to recreate it with what you have. Also how cool is it that they even used purple mascara? LOVE THIS LOOK! My magazine shows the image as a bit more saturated and darker than the picture above, but eh, same diff.
