Hello everyone.. :-))
Today i am going to copy cat Eva longoria’s eye makeup look from desperate housewives promo(season 7) which our dear Farha was drooling over.. 🙂 It is a bronze & deep black brown(or black.i used black brown) soft smokey eye with a peachy nude lip and a bit of bronzer on face.Ek dum easy and wearable.
These are the screen shots of Eva’s original eye look in the trailer:
Watch the promo:
Step 1: Apply a foundation or tinted moisturiser which gives you a healthy dewy finish and conceal any blemishes and dark circles.Set it lightly with powder if you want(i did).If you are worried about fallout you can do the base after eye makeup.
Step 2: Apply concealer/paintpot/foundation/cream eye shadow/any thing else you like as a base on you eye lids and lower lashline(i used concealer)
Step 3: Now take a metallic/shimmery bronze eye shadow and pat it allover the lid.Do not go above the crease.
Step 4: Now take a matte warm orangey brown colour and apply it lightly just on the outer part of the eye lid and half way in the crease.Blend it well.
Step 5: Take a black kohl or eyeliner pencil and apply roughly on the upper and lower lashline.Smudge it with finger and apply a dark brown eyeshadow on top of the smudged black pencil and blend it in to the bronze colour.leave a small part empty near the inner corner of lowe lashline.Apply black kajal/kohl of your choice lightly on both upper and lower waterline.Don’t worry if it smudges off quickly because that is what the kind of effect we are looking for.
Step 6: Take the same bronze colour and apply it on the empty space we left on the lower lashline.Next apply a matte eyeshadow which matches your skin tone as a highlighter or you can use some pressed powder too.Then curl your lashes and apply loads of volumising mascara to both upper and lower lashes(She has some thick false lashes on..i don’t have them..so i used several coats of volumising mascara).Her brows are very defined..so fill the brows with an eyeshadow or pencil of your choice.That’s it..our eye look is finished! 🙂
Step 7: Take a matte bronzer or warm brown blush/eyeshadow and use it to contour your cheeks and blend it upwards.Also apply it on the temples and and sides of the nose.This whole procedure brings warmth to the face.From what i can see she doesn’t have any blush on..so leave them bare.She used a light peachy nude lipstick but i couldn’t find mine 🙁 So i used a li’l bit darker peach lipstick and a nude shimmery gloss over it to tone it down.So here is my finished look..
And finally a poochie for all IMBBans :* <3 🙂
*Yaby cream foundation-mixed three shades(see dots in pic) and thinned it out with RCMA thinner.
*Ben nye visage poudre-luxury powder in “banana”.
*Applied the same foundation again on blemishes to conceal them.
*Mixed two blushes(see arrow marks in pic) from the 10 blush palette and used it as bronzer.
*Oriflame dual skin corrector in “medium” as eyeshadow base.
*Metallic bronze eyeshadow from Coastal scent’s “mirage” palette.(1)
*Warm brown eyeshadow-same CS palette.(2)
*Deepbrown eyeshadow(mixed black and brown) -same CS palette.(3 & 4)
*Matte highlighter(mixed two shadows)-same CS palette.(5 & 6)
*Avon perfect wear kajal-lash lines and water lines.
*Loreal voluminous mascara in “blackest black”(upper lashes)
*Maybelline lash discovery mascara in “very black”(lower lashes.Bcoz it has a very thin brush)
*Revlon colour burst lipstick in “peach”.
*Avon glossy delight lip juice in “sugared fig”.
*MAC 239 (lid)
*MAC 217 (crease and outer part of lid)
*MAC 219(inner corner)
*Sigma E20-short shader (to smudge dark brown eyeshadow on upper and lower lashlines)
*Sigma F35-Tapered highlighter(bronzer and contour)
*Sigma F25-Tapered face(powder the face and under the eyes)
So this was my “almost” copy cat of Eva’s look.This is very easy to do..you don’t even need a ton of products(i know i used a ton 😛 but you need not use these many products to get this look..For eg: you can do the whole eye look using one single brush! and you can use a single mascara for both the lashes and etc.,etc., :-))and the whole look can be done within 10-15 mins.False lashes will enhance this look a lot.Hope you all (especially Farha) liked my attempt at copy catting Eva’s look 😛 😀
