    Hey I am absolutely in love with your videos! I was just wondering if you could help me out? I have small dark blue down turned eyes and I can never figure out the best way to apply eye shadow for that particular shape. Thanks so much for the help! Keep up the amazing videos :).

    Hi Shulamit, without knowing your skin tone I can’t accurately recommend colors. However, to open up your eyes, I would advise you to choose eyeshadows in light to medium tones (instead of dark shades). Also, use lots of mascara on the top and bottom lashes as this makes small eyes appear larger. To avoid drawing attention to the shape of your eyes, keep the emphasis on the eyelid as opposed to the lashline. Hope this is helpful!

    Okay this is going to seem like a strange question, but how can I make my eyebrows seem fuller? My brows do not have much hair at all and I get people saying stuff about it all the time, including my husband. He is just so used to his family having nice full eyebrows. If you want, email me and I can send you a picture. Thank you so very much for your help.

    Hi Erika

    The best thing to do would be to have your eyebrows shaped at a reputable salon. Following that, you could fill them in to make them appear darker, fuller and more defined. For a natural finish, I would recommend using an eyebrow powder and a soft-bristled angled brush. I would suggest M·A·C’s Eye Shadows in Omega and Wedge for your coloring, and the M·A·C Medium Angled Shading Brush 275. To apply the powder, start at the inner corner of the eye and work outward using short brushstrokes. If you are not confident, go to your nearest M·A·C counter for a makeup lesson.

    Hope this helps!

    I have a question – how do you find the best angle to draw on eyeliner for, what I think is called, “cat-eyes” or “cleopatra eyes” when you have hooded eyelids? I don’t even bother with eyeshadow because you can never see it! But I love eyeliner. Oh, also, what brush do you use in your vid for lining your lids?

  12. Little Miss Makeup says:

    Hi, Ri. If you want to wear eyeshadow, blend a medium-toned shade across the lid, and take it up just above the crease. This way you should be able to see a little bit of color when your eyes are open, and it will also help to soften the brow bone. Accentuating the lash line with eyeliner is a good idea. The best way to apply it is to work it across the lash line using short strokes, then with your eyes open, draw on the ‘flicks’. To get the correct angle for the ‘wings’, pretend you are drawing a line from the outer corner of your eye to the end of your eyebrow. Once you have the angle right, you can make the line thicker and/or longer. Check out these tutorials for some more tips and tricks: Gel eyeliner application and How to apply liquid eyeliner. The eyeliner brush I used in this look was MAC’s Small Angle Brush 266.

    Hope this helps!

    This look is AMAZING! Where could I get the makeup and makeup brushes from?

  14. Little Miss Makeup says:

    Thanks, Lauryn. Did you download the eBook? All the products and brushes are listed on the last page. I would recommend that you search for them online. A lot are from MAC Cosmetics.co.uk or Shu Uemura.co.uk.
