How to Get a Sexy Angelic Halloween Make-up Look

Whether you're going all out this Halloween or you want to simply look beautiful and angelic while you hand out candy to your neighborhood trick-or-treaters look no further than this easy-to-emulate make-up look! You'll look pretty and soft, sexy and polished... just like Mariah Carey did at a Halloween Bash she attended with her hubby! So how do you get the look? First, start with perfectly primed lids by applying our Bye Bye Lid Lines to your eyelids and lower lash line. It will keep your make-up on from day well into night and actually treats your eye area thanks to perfectly loving ingredients like Green Tea extract. Now grab our Luxe High Performance Eyeshadow Palette and reach for the shade Je Ne Sais Quoi and apply it from your lash line to your crease. Now using a brush apply the shade Ipanema in a windshield-wiper motion in your crease. You can also use the shade on the outer corners of your eyes using a small circular motion for a more dramatic look. Next, using an angle brush, apply Ipanema to your lower lash line... this will really make your eyes stand out! Finally, apply a light dusting of the shade Satin Cashmere around the outside of your eyes on your upper cheek bone using your index finger or with a brush. This will make you sparkle like the angelic goddess you are! And of course every angel needs long, lush lashes... so add a few coats of mascara while you're at it! And now that you're done.... go have fun. After all, you'll be the prettiest angel of them all this Halloween thanks to your sparkling, angelic eyes!

How to use our Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Trio in Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe

If you're anything like us you LOVE new make-up and love little tips and pointers on how to use it even more, right? So if you want a little tutorial on how to apply our new Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Trios in Matte Luxe... you've got it! So here we go! We always recommend applying our Bye Bye Lid Lines primer to your eyelids before any shadow. It will keep your eyeshadow in place all day and will prevent any pesky creases from forming. It is also packed with anti-aging and age-preventative ingredients for some ultimate lid love. So now that your lids are primed and ready reach for a naturally pretty look reach for lightest shade called Cashmere and apply it as a wash from your lash line all the way to your brow bone. Next, use the light brown shade called Earth Angel and apply it in a windshield-wiper motion in your crease. Now for a great eye-brightening tip: Add Cashmere to the inside corners of your eyes to perk up your peepers! Next, add the deepest shade, Espresso, to the outer corners of your creases and blend in a small circular motion. You can also line your eyes with Espresso using an angle brush on your upper and lower lash lines. For a smoky, smudged look line your eyes with the shadow using a dry brush. For a more dramatic look, wet the brush before dipping it in the shadow. Now if you want to make this more of an evening look use Earth Angel from your lash line to crease as an all over wash. Next, intensify the amount of Espresso you use in your crease and in the outer corner. Now take a look at your eyes... your eye color should sparkle without anyone even noticing the make-up! Now that's naturally pretty!
