Recently I was able to attend two of the Blush Pretty workshops that I told you about in this post.
I attended “Eye On The Prize” where we learned how to do a day look, a winged liner look and a smoky eye look. I didn’t take any pictures of this event since it was a full session and none of the other ladies in attendance were bloggers – I didn’t want them to feel strange with me taking pictures of them all night!
Make up expert Kerri (apotheKerri) led the “Eye On The Prize” session and I learned quite a few tips and tricks from her. Here are two stand outs for me.
- Use my angled brush as a crease brush
Say what?? Yup, you read that correctly! It makes for a more precise placement of the eyeshadow and this worked particularly well for me since usually when I use a darker shadow in my crease I have to be really careful not to apply the eye shadow too high or else I kind of look “surprised” all the time as Kerri put it.
- An angled brush also gives you the perfect “cat eye flip”
This one definitely required a lot of practice. I did my first eye (right eye) perfectly. The left eye not so much 😛 Using a cream or gel eyeliner offers more versatility.
The brush that I use is from ecotools – I picked this one up while in Florida at Target but you can get them at Walmart too.
Good news – new workshops were just announced! I missed out on the “prep, prime and conceal” workshop so I’m so happy it’s being offered again!
