Alima Pure Graphic Smoky Eye


  • Face

    Warm a cream concealer by swirling your finger in the pan, and then blend gently to cover dark circles and redness. Follow with Pressed Foundation, applied with either a Foundation Brush, Flat Top Brush (for fuller coverage), or a Kabuki Brush (for keeping in one’s purse). Focus coverage on the t-zone first, and blend outward with downward strokes to achieve a lightweight matte layer of coverage.

    Brows

    Add extra definition to the brows with Natural Definition Brow Pencil. Fill in sparse places with short, hairlike strokes and blend well.

  • Eyes

    Start with a layer of Natural Definition Eye Pencil in Ink to lay a bold base for your eyeshadows. This gives more vibrant colour payoff and that graphic metallic finish. Use the side of the pencil to blend from the lash line to crease, and outward, as if you were connecting winged liner to your crease. Blend Ink along the lower lash line as well.

    Next, using a damp Mini Blending Brush, layer After Hours over the lid. Follow with a layer of Pearluster Eyeshadow in Cypress blended onto the center of the lid and sweep along the lower lash line.

    Bonus: for extra definition in the crease where your eyeshadow ends, set the edge with a light dusting of powder that matches your skin or adds a hint of brightness.

    Finish with a coat (or two, just be sure to wait between them!) of Mascara in Black.
