Get the Look:

Eyes

1. Prime the eyelid with Votre Vu’s Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Medium by sweeping it all over the eyelid, on the orbital bone, inner corners of the eyes, and right underneath the bottom lash line

2. Using Palette Play in Copper eyeshadow quad, sweep the shade Linen over the entire eyelid and up to the brow bone

3. Apply shade the Gilt to the eyelid and up to the crease

4. To create an almond/cat-eye shape, apply the shade Copper Suede in a V shape in the outer corner of the eyes and right up into the crease, but only a third of the way towards the inner corner

5. Take the shade Indigo with an angled brush and line the upper lash line and wing it out at the outer corner

6. Gentle line the upper lash line with Le Joli Crayon in Charbon and smudge it out with the end of the pencil

7. Line the lower lash line with Le Joli Crayon in Aubergine for a softer look and smudge it out

8. Go back over both the Charbon and Aubergine with Copper Suede from the eyeshadow quad to soften the lines further

9. Apply multiple coats of Eiffel Power for a voluminous look.  “I really love the mascara because you can use it for a very natural look with just one coat, but then if you apply numerous coast it builds up beautifully and doesn’t clump at all!  It really separates the lashes while building, which is great.”

10. “Since Ana already has gorgeous thick eyebrows, there wasn’t much that needed to be done.  Using the Arch de Triumphe in Warm and Dark Brown, I just filled them in lightly for a more polished look.”
