Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be collaborating with Melissa of alwaysmfashion.com.  We took the spring/summer trends and decided to create a makeup and fashion series! After you read about my makeup look, head over to Melissa’s article and read about the fashion ensemble I’m wearing! Don't forget to follow her on Instagram and Twitter. Both are @alwaysmfashion. 

I was so intrigued with this graphic eye look! When I first saw that the graphic eye look was a trend for this summer, I wasn’t sure how to wear this look on a “normal” or “everyday” basis. I personally think this look is perfect for a summer party or a fun music festival. 

How I created this look: 

I created my basic foundation routine (you can watch that here)

I grabbed the closest flat tool (clear tape is perfect for this ) and placed it extended from my eye to my eyebrow.

I then used the matte red from my Morphe 35B Palette and packed it along the tape line from my outer corner all the way to the outer eyebrow.

I repeated that step over and over until the red was POPPING. 

I blended the edges so it would fade out. 

Next, I took the sparkly red shade in my Morphe 35B and packed that all over my lid.

I blended the crease with my Makeup Geek Matte shade in Baby Face.

I grabbed NYX Cosmetics Retractable Eyeliner in Black and I lined my tightline and my waterline. 

I applied by Maybelline Mascara on my lashes.

I put the Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin in Jiffy on my lips. 

Let me know if you end up recreating this look! Be sure to tag me on Instagram (@thbtfllfe) or Twitter (@thsbtflfe).
