1.  Apply color tattoo to the entire lid, up to the crease.

4.  Apply Continuous Cocoa Infallible to the crease, from outer corner to mid crease.

5.  Apply Endless Pearl Infallible to the inner corner and under the brow.

6.  Liner top and bottom lash line with brown liner.

7.  Smudge Continuous Cocoa Infallible over the eye liner.

8.  Apply Mascara to top and bottom lashes.  Four coats on top, two on bottom.

The key to any eye look is blending.  Blend the lines where the shadows meet, so you have a soft transition from one color to the other.

This is only the 2nd time that I have ever worn red lipstick.  I have heard about this shade from quite a few beauty girls on youtube, so I thought I would try it for the holidays.  


  1. You look stunning! I love your makeup and outfit! Blending is where I have the most trouble. My eyeshadow NEVER ends up looking like yours! I will keep reading and trying! Thanks ~ sharing this on FB!

  2. Just keep practicing, Robin. I have been doing makeup on myself and others for many years. I improve and learn new techniques all the time, so I am always learning myself. Make sure you have some good quality brushes as well. I really like Real Techniques. They are now selling them at Wal-Mart. Thank you for sharing!
