Make sure to keep your makeup simple, sultry and sexy (remember the 3S). Even if your outfit is simple. You don’t need to overdo your makeup to stand out. You want to achieve effortless chic look.
You can never go wrong with a smokey eye. For Amanda’s super-sultry eye makeup look. Start by using, an eyeshadow primer, i would recommend Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (£16) . Try Stila’s In The Moment Eye Shadow Palette (£22.50). Smudge the deep purple, upwards and outwards on the eyelid, use the colour ‘whim’ as your transition colour and ‘wonder’ as your brow bone highlight and your tear dot highlight to open up your eyes.
For your bottom lashes,use the dark purple in the outer corner, ‘whim’ in the mid section and ‘wonder’ to highlight the tear-dot area. Finally,line the upper and lower lash starting from the inner edge of your iris (that’s the colored part of your eyeball—lining from here instead of from all the way in the inside corner makes your eyes look bigger) with a black kohl pencil (try Rimmel’s Soft Kohl Eye Pencil, (£2.99), in Jet Black) then smudged out a little.
Finish the look with a mascara, try Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Mascara (£7.19).
To recreate J-Law’s seductive, sparkling eye look, using the same techniques above, blend a shades of black all over your lids, using brown as your transition colour and pale pink to open up yours eyes. Line your eyes with a liquid liner on your top and bottom lashes and finish off with a coat of mascara.
To give either smokey eyes the glam finish, pair with dewy skin, peachy or naturally bronzed cheeks and a glossy nude or pink matte lips to finish off.
Finally, set your face for the night with a setting spray. I would recommend Urban Decay All Nighter Make-Up Setting Spray (£20).
