How To: Holiday Eyes Makeup – Lash Extension-Friendly
Whether you have eyelash extensions or not, use this easy 5-step tutorial to level up your holiday look. Every product is skin, eyelash, and lash extension-friendly, so you can love your look without worrying about health and safety.
What You’ll Need
- NovaLash Creme Shadow (we used “Earth Angel” and “Heaven & Hell” for this tutorial, but you can mix and match colors for different looks)
- Dual End Eye Shadow Brush (Optional)
- NovaLash Mascara (Optional)
Step 1 – Cover Your Lid
Apply “Earth Angel” over the lid using your fingers or the larger brush on the NovaLash’s dual Ended Eyeshadow Brush. Start at the lash line and move to the crease using short strokes to cover the entire lid.
Step 2 – Accentuate Your Crease
Cut the crease with “Heaven & Hell” using your finger or the shorter brush head. Blend to build desired depth and smoke out the harsh line where the lighter and darker colors meet.
Step 3 – Smoke Out Your Bottom Lash Line
Using “Heaven & Hell,” apply the creme shadow to your bottom lash line. Continue blending until you have no harsh lines or edges. This could take some time and practice, so be patient!
Step 4 – Add Liner
Add a dramatic flair by adding NovaLash’s JETliner in “Oak” to your upper lid. Then, add some subtle liner to your waterline.
Step 5 – Accentuate Your Lashes
For a more dramatic look, use NovaLash’s eyelash extension-friendly mascara on your bottom lashes. If you don’t have eyelash extensions, apply mascara to both your top and bottom lashes.
