Hello, Maven! This is the the new Sweep Eyeshadow Palette: Neutrals in action. The December’s featured add-on tool for the December Maven Selection boxes is the Julep Eyeshadow Brush. It is a synthetic brush with a great dome shape.
For both eye looks in this tutorial you’ll need:
Sweep Eye Palette: Neutrals
brown eyeliner & black eyeliner (we used the double-sided Kajal Eye Glider)
Julep Eyeshadow Brush
smudge brush (if you have one — no biggie if not)
Start with Sweep color Tiramisu on your Julep Eyeshadow Brush, and place it from the inner corner of your eye to the center, from the lash line to the crease.
Next, apply Sweep color Glow. Move in upward strokes from the center of your lash line to the outer corner (or vice versa), just past the crease, and blend it in a circular motion.
PRO TIP: Concentrate color at lash line and pull up towards crease.
(Our makeup artist says “this Julep Eyeshadow Brush is perfect for seamless blending.”)
Apply brown liner across the entire lash line (we’re using the Brown Shimmer end of our double-sided Kajal Eye Glider), hugging very close to lashes, from the inner corner to outer edge.
Using a small smudge brush (a placement brush also works) put a little bit of Sweep color Cocoa on the brush. Concentrate the powder against the lash line from the center to the outer corner of the eye to hold your liner in place.
Optional Step 5 (not pictured)
Using your brown liner, or Cocoa, or Glow, or any combination of these, add a touch of color on the outer corner of bottom lid. Start at outside edge of your eye and pull in across your lower lash line. We used our Kajal Brown Shimmer and a touch of Sweep color Cocoa.
Top off with your favorite mascara and you’re good to go.
Generous liner application
Using a black eyeliner (we used the Carbon Black side of our double-ended Kajal Eye Glider), generously line above your lashes starting at the center of your lash line, moving toward the outer edge of eye. Repeat the motion starting at your inner eye and moving toward center, so that your entire lash line is fully covered.
Using your placement brush or finger, blur out the liner in upward strokes toward the crease of your eye.
Note: that’s just liner on the brush, no shadow.
Using your placement brush, dust your entire lid–staying below the crease–with Sweep color Cocoa.
Highlight your center lid by tapping on Sweep color Dusk just below the crease.
Highlight your inner eye and crease by tapping on Sweep color Toffee.
Using a smudger, brush Sweep color Toffee beneath your eye against the lash line. Moving in either direction is fine—whichever is more comfortable for you.
Finish with your favorite mascara.
p.s. Try to be gentle on all those hearts you might break.
