Steps:

1. Begin by sweeping a soft, matte grey eye shadow (Matt Abdul) to the lower half of the eyelid using Sigma brush #E44.

2. Next, use the pointed Sigma brush #E30 to apply a shimmery charcoal eye shadow (No Waiting) on top of the base color, concentrating on the outer half of the lid.

3. Carefully line the upper lash line, and wing out the eye shadow (Leather Pants) using Sigma brush #E05.

4. Using the same brush and eye shadow, blend the very tip of the cat eye back towards the middle of the lash line.

5. Create the double cat eye by using a black eyeliner pencil to line the lower lash line, mimicking the same shape as above.

6. Smudge the liner using Sigma brush #E65 and a touch of the Leather Pants eye shadow.

7. Apply lengthening false lashes for a more glam look.

8. Finish by applying mascara to the upper and lower lashes!

Check the Measurements!

When it comes to shopping online and loving what you buy, it’s always helpful to know your measurements! Grab your measuring tape, and compare to the retail site’s size and fit tab. Keep in mind that different brands and styles will fit differently, so paying attention to all description details, photos, as well as size and fit notes is key! Does it run small or large? What size is the model wearing? Knowing all of these components will help determine the most accurate fit.

Tip: If you are need of an item in a pinch and are still unsure about size, order more than one and return the item that doesn’t fit!

 

Know Your Fabrics!

Going hand-in-hand with reading product descriptions thoroughly and knowing your measurements, it’s a good idea to know your fabrics as well. From cotton, rayon, polyester, and beyond, the weave and weight can play a huge role in the overall fit and feel. Lightweight fabrics are great for warmer temps, and thick knits make for great cold-weather staples. Some fabrics like nylon and spandex may help create stretch (allowing a little give to the fit), while other fabrics like woven cotton or poly may not stretch at all. Get to know what fabrics and blends you love most to find pieces you’ll treasure for seasons to come!

Tip: Compare the fabric of the item you are interested in to what you already have in your closet; or when in doubt hit the interwebs – Google is your BFF!
