Eye & Brow Maestro in #6

To give Cate a strong, but not harsh, look to compliment the turquoise necklace, Jeanine opted to work with eye shades that would bring out her blue eyes. She applied the beige rose color of Quad #6 on her lids then blended the medium toned brown in her crease. To give a very round eye, Jeanine added the plum brown in the lash line below the eye and darkened the outer corner of the crease with it. She then added Eye Tint in the lash line slightly dotting it to give depth. She finished the eye with Black Ecstasy mascara and created full brows with Eye & Brow Maestro.
