Looking for an easy way to freshen up your everyday eye makeup routine? While you could go with a touch of color or an ever-flattering cat eye, you can easily upgrade your go-to eyeshadow by adding a hint of shine. Emily Blunt showed up at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards 2012 with a bright, natural-looking face that was enhanced by her glossy eyelids. Here's how you can steal her look.
First, you'll need a gorgeous, dewy canvas to work with. You can achieve this with a tinted moisturizer or BB cream, which hydrates your skin while offering sheer coverage. Smooth it over your face for an even finish. Now add a creamy blush on the apples of your cheeks and consider using highlighter along your cheekbones, brow bones and down the bridge of your nose.
Next, use an eyeshadow primer on your lids – this step is crucial if you want to keep your eye makeup from smudging later on. Pick out your favorite eyeshadow and mix it with a little bit of Vaseline or a clear lip gloss, like Too Faced – Mirror Mirror Gloss in I Know You Want Me! You can do this with a brush or with your fingers.
Finish up with a coat of lip gloss on your pout and you'll be thanking Emily for the inspiration!
