    Fun eye make-up: Using eye shadow as eye liner

    • 1 min read

    BY CHELSEA SIMMONS

    I love to apply the jane iredale Eye Shadows as eye liner. There are so many colors to choose from, the look can be soft or intense, and it really lasts. To create great staying power, line with a co-ordinating shade of Eye Pencil first, using the Eye Liner/Brow Brushto really work it into the lash line. Next, take the Detail Brushand spritz with Hydration Spray or just moisten the brush under the tap. Pick up any of our PurePressed Eye Shadows with the moist brush. Starting at the outer corner of the eye, place your brush at the lash line and follow the lash line in, ending where desired - be artistic and experiment! This is a great method for creating the cat eye: simply wing up and out at the outer corner. It may be easier to do this without lifting your brush, or you may find you get a neater, tighter line if you use connected dashes. To create a softer look, blend well or go over the line with a dry brush using the same shade or a similar, lighter shade.
