It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here. I know many of you went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens last night, but Neil and I decided to wait until today to see it. Why? Well, it’s a long story, but basically we are hoping to get a lighter crowd on a Friday morning than at the 7pm/12am premiere the night before. We’ll report back with our findings. If you haven’t seen it by now, be sure to check out Covergirl’s line of Star Wars cosmetics. Their ideas for how to use those products are what inspired me to create this look.
I won’t be sharing how to copy their looks exactly because, let’s face it, can you really wear copious amounts of eyeliner up to your eyebrow for an everyday look? No, not really. But that is the point of fashion that I think a lot of people miss. You use their ideas to inspire your own. For this look, we’re focusing on the eyes, so I’m concentrating on the products you’ll need for your eyes. You need:
1. Gel/Cream eyeliner
3. Eyeshadow base
4. Multi-color eyeshadow in the theme of your choice
5. A good set of eyeshadow/eyeliner brushes The purpose of the eyeshadow base is to help your shadow’s longevity. No sense in working hard on your look only to have it “slide” off by the end of the day. The purpose of the gel/cream eyeliner is similar, but I also love how much more pigment you get from a gel/cream as opposed to a pencil. And, no, it’s not difficult at all to apply a gel/cream eyeliner. Don’t be afraid to experiment! Keep q-tips, cotton balls, and tissues on hand for any missteps. I’m quite happy with the way this look turned out, and I hope to try more “inspired” looks in the future.
