A LOOK FOR DIFFERENT EYE SHAPE, FINALLY.
last year i released two makeup looks for fall, both using burgundy colour - smokey burgundy for asian eyes, and an ulzzang style burgundy eye look. after last week's orange themed fall look, here's yet another burgundy themed look, but this time it's featuring a different set of eyes!
let us welcome my cousin HAZEL! :D
she's in town for the week to visit me, i took this chance to film her as a lot of people share a similar eye shape as her.
watch the video below!
i totally forgot to take a photograph of all the products she used, and she happily flew off the next day after filming.

doing your eye makeup can be tremendously easy if you have the right product. i finally understand why the naked palette has become a cult favourite by most ladies out there. their blend of matte and shimmer shades make it an extremely versatile palette and you can create almost any look with it.
the matte shades are very useful for blending out and contouring, while the shimmery shades are beautiful to be used as either on the inner corners or even on the lids! it's very different from the japanese eyeshadows i've been using so i'm really amused.
side view of the look.
as the eye look is mostly shimmery and light (even with the inclusion of the darker wine shade), it pairs up nicely with a pair of bold lips. the glowy skin helps to balance things out too!

i love how hazel made the eyeshadow work on her. using the wine shade as an accent colour is a great way for people with eye shape like hers.
i've received many questions on how to do makeup for monolids or eyelid folds that aren't very obvious. their concern is usually regarding their eyeliner, and my answer is always to rely on the lashes instead of eyeliner to frame their eyes. instead of using a super thick eyeliner that may make any look instantly over the top, a skinny eyeliner and well curled lashes might do the job better.
hopefully you like hazel's look as much as i do! it's her first time filming, so show her some love!
