Quick Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Electra eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Silver Ring eyeshadow to the middle of the lid, extending to the outer lid. Darken the outer lid with Carbon eyeshadow using the 239. Darken crease with Carbon eyeshadow using the 226. Sweep Shroom eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Smudge Silver Ring eyeshadow on the lower lash line using the 219 brush.

Temptalia Asks You

How do you make your lipgloss last longer? What are your tricks and tips?

Temptalia's Answer.

I layer lipstick under it for one. I also try to avoid drinking, LOL! Stickier glosses tend to last longer on me than other ones, too :)
