This beautiful look will turn heads at any party. Get this mystical look by applying shimmery blue eye shadow to the upper part of your eyelids and using white eyeliner to the inner part of your eye and drawing a swiping cat-eye. Paint your eyelashes with a silvery-white mascara to bring the entire look together. Top off the look with red lipstick of your choice.

Her simple star-spangled look is easy enough to copy; all you need is some blue eye shadow, glittery sky blue shadow, some sparkle glue, white eyeliner, and black mascara. Start by applying the glittery eye shadow to the upper part of your eyelid and then the smudge in the darker blue, as to resemble the sky. Using the white eyeliner draw overlapping stars and highlight with glitter glue. Apply mascara.

All you need for this festive look is fake eyelashes and red, white, and blue eye shadow. You can switch up this look with different colors of eye shadow to match the party or your dress. Don’t forget to wear your best color lipstick.

The key to getting this natural look and make your eyes pop, opt for natural eye shadow tones such as browns and greys and bring out those fake eye lashes. Use very fine black eyeliner to bring attention to your eyes. She also believes in having your eyebrows professionally groomed for a polished look.

Simplicity at its best

Grab your liquid blue eyeliner or any other color your heart desires, preferably a waterproof brand and your fake eyelashes. Swipe your eyeliner on in a thick line into a cat eye after applying your fake lashes. Voila! you are ready to tackle any party.
