Eye Makeup Rescue
My 15 Min. Sephora Revolution
Have you ever stopped off at Sephora in Bower and had someone do your eyes? They’ve got so many helpful make-up artists to assist the most bold beauty goers or those who may need a little help to get started.
Try Before You Buy
Sitting down with one of the pros from Sephora allows you to talk about what you really need to get the look you want to achieve.
They have superior product knowledge and are trained by the experts in the industry. Who doesn’t love a little pampering before deciding on that perfect primer?
By the way, that’s the first pro tip: great primer keeps your makeup on you way longer. Put your money where your look starts.
We used Nars tinted smudge proof eyes shadow base. I had perfect smoky eyes all day.
Get Practical Application Advice
Liquid eyeliner is tough to get the hang of, but with a little expert coaching I was able to get that right look.
Having the right tools is key, they showed me how to use and angled brush to apply and my mornings have become so much easier!
Pro tip #2: The right brush can be essential to application for the makeup challenged.
Yves St. Laurent COUTURE KAJAL has a large tip that makes it easy to load up the edge of that flat angle. She stippled it along my lash line with so much ease.
The Lasting Look and Feeling Good
Not only did I get expert advice and application pointers but I walked out of Sephora feeling confident and ready for my next coffee meeting.
You will just have to take my word for it that my eyes were pretty as can be. And more importantly, I learned enough to pull this off at home. I am totally going back for the tinted eyebrow gel!
Pro tip #3: ask questions, write down tricks, and feel great.
