PICTURE THIS: It’s a Thursday, and it’s 5 PM… you get hit with the “Happy Hour?” text. You’re never one to turn down a good time.. but you need a pick me up. Here’s a tutorial on how to go from Office to Out in a few simple steps using the NYX Professional Makeup Get the Look Kit 2.
Lets start with our simple office look. I always stick to 3 eyeshadows- brow and inner corner highlight, lid, and crease. 1. Always start with an eyeshadow primer to increase color payoff and prevent creasing, like NYX High Definition Eyeshadow Base. 2. Using a firm brush and eyeshadow #5, start from the lashline up to your natural crease when your eyes are open. 3. Using a fluffier blending brush, start from the outer corner of your eye and blend back and forth across your natural crease. 4. Blend shadow #2 on the brow bone and inner corner to highlight and brighten, while making your eyes look more lifted. 5. A quick swipe of NYX Retractable eye liner and a coat of NYX Pin- Up Tease Mascara and you’re out the door!
Ok, back to pretending like it’s 5 PM and you have somewhere important to be… 1. I used eyeshadow #4 in the outer crease with a firm brush, and blend halfway across the eye in the crease, and down to the lashline. 2. Use #9 as a pop of shimmer in the inner corner. 3. Another swipe of your liner, and top it with eyeshadow #3 using an eyeliner brush so it stays put. 4. A few more coats of mascara for extra drama and finish your look with the NYX butter lipstick in Moonlit Night. If you’re feeling real EXTRA, I used that same liner brush along my lower lashes with eyeshadow #6.
