Whitney and I used only 5 items to create this beautifully dramatic look in just four steps.

Step 1: Prep – We love this Bobbi Brown cream shadow alone or as an eyelid primer. It is a gorgeous mix of plum, taupe and just a bit of sparkle. It creates a smooth canvas for applying eye shadow. It doesn’t crease and provides a long lasting foundation for simple to dramatic eye looks. You can apply it with your finger or this Bobbi Brown eye shadow brush if you prefer. The brush is so soft!!

I used two shades {far left purple and far right light pink} of this 5 shade Lancome palette to create a pop of color perfect to show off our green eyes. Use this Bobbi Brown eye shadow brush to apply light layers of color until you have reached your preferred color density.

The light pink shade is the perfect under brow accent. Apply this shade first, followed by the middle burgundy plum shade all over the lid. She then used the deep gray as a corner accent. The long purple strip at the bottom of the palette can be used as a liner or as another accent shade. It has the prettiest shimmer!

Whitney also has a secret step for awesome color pay off: use a damp eye shadow brush. It provides extra depth and longevity that is sure to get you some major compliments.

We love using this long wear Bobbi Brown liner on the water line of the lower lid. It doesn’t run and gives the perfect dramatic edge. We both then applied it to our top lid as well. But our trick is that you don’t just stop there. Use this new Lancome bendable neck liner to create the perfect flick at the edge of the eye. By applying the solid liner first, it gives you a line with which to base the liquid liner on without fear of creating an uneven swoosh. It works every time! Definitely give it a try if you are wary of applying liquid liner.

This new Grandiose Extreme mascara from Lancome is amazing at separating and volumizing lashes. We love the special angled handle too as it allows you to get extra close to the lash line. When it comes to a dramatic eye look, our motto is the more mascara, the better!

I applied this new lip crayon in “drive to pink” to give the perfect color pop. It comes in 10 other shades too if you prefer something more subtle. The consistency of the lip color allows it to be applied evenly so no lip liner is needed. The color stays bold all day long and won’t dry out your lips either.

It’s available in 11 shades too so there’s definitely something for every color preference. The powder formula provides long lasting color as well. We also LOVE applying our foundation with this Artis oval brush, and this NM exclusive Artis oval brush set is on our wish list!

Last month Whitney ordered some as we had to see what all the buzz was about. We already love it. It smells amazing and gives some much needed lift and texture to our curls. The bottle will last forever too since you don’t need much at all. It’s easy to see why it’s now one of NM’s best sellers.
