Upper eye: drawn along the upper lashline and then smudged out to imperfectly define. 4 LASH trimmed into “clumps” and place haphazardly over the crosshatched liner. 30 LASH individual small and medium lashes were placed at angles and upside down along the crosshatch to create even more dimension to eyes.
LIP CONDITIONER lightly applied over lips to nourish and hydrate. REDD LIP PENCIL used with 316 Lip Brush/Covered to create “little ticks” at the sides of the mouth for a suggestion of a smirk, and blended over lips to match the stain on cheeks.
