Makeup Look of the Day: The Bombshell

Blonde hair, red lips, false lashes, beauty mark.... are all Bombshell essentials.  The eyes are made up with brown shadow in the crease of lid, white shadow over the entire lid and brow bone, and black liquid liner on the upper lash line.  False lashes are the final touch.

Also, a bright pink blush is swept over the cheeks and lips are lined with a flesh toned pencil before applying a true red lip color and topped off with a layer of glossy red.

A beauty mark on the lower left cheek is the final touch (for this I used the same black liquid liner that I used for my eyes).


Although I wouldn't wear them for everyday use, false lashes are literally an eye opener.  You can purchase them at most drugstores and beauty supply stores and they cost as low as $3.  I used Ardell black lashes, #107 and Albolene Duo Eyelash Adhesive.  Applying the lashes can be a little tricky.  You have to put just the right amount of adhesive on the strip...too little and they won't stick; too much and you'll end up with a sticky mess.  Applying the lashes to the lash line takes practice.  The most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure you place them as close to the lash line as possible so they look natural.  My best advice is to do a little experimenting before you actually wear them out.
