COVERGIRL How To – Part 2

Yesterday, COVERGIRL Makeup Pro, Greg Wencel showed us bold minimalism eyes for day. Today, he shows us how to create a perfect and elegant night look.
Create a chic and fully defined face for night by combining a statement lip and bold eye look. Again, begin with your eye makeup in case of any fallen or loose shadow, which you can simply remove with a makeup wipe.

When pairing a bold eye and lip you want to make sure the rest of your makeup like your foundation and blush is clean, natural and as tidily applied as possible. This way you will never look garish or over the top.

Take COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze and draw a thick, graphic line along your lash line from the inner to the outer corner.  Next, carefully draw a thin, precise line on your bottom lash line from outer corner of your eye just shy of the middle eye area.

Apply Eye Enhancer 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Brown Smolder across your entire eyelid with the flat part of the applicator. Use the tapered tip to draw a distinct defined cat eye crease shape.
Finish off with one very generous coat of new LashBlast 24HR Mascara in Very Black on the top and bottom lashes. For this look I recommend only using one coat; you don’t want your eyes to over power or compete with the bold lip you are going to wear with this look.
Perfect your skin by stippling on TRUblend Foundation with your finger over any blemishes or imperfections and make sure to camouflage your outer lip line as well.  This will allow you to create a crisp defined lip.
Lastly, fill in your natural lip shape with COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Passion.  Try and create a full soft shape by rounding off all your corners instead of creating harsh triangular lines. Finish with a vibrant coat of true red, using COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Runway Shade Hot directly from the tube. If you have found you have drawn outside of the lines, use a fine tipped q-tip to precisely clean up any messy edges.
