Steps:

All shadows used for this look can be found in the Sigma Nightlife Eye Shadow Palette.

1. Start by using Sigma brush #E70 to apply the base shade Panache to the center of the lid.

2. Add Urbanette to the crease and outer corner, with pointed Sigma brush #E30.

3. Bring the same eye shadow around and down to the lower lash-line, using precise Sigma brush #E65.

4. Soften the center of the lid by applying Skyline below the crease, with Sigma brush #E47.

5. Use the same eye shadow and brush from previous step to brighten the brow bone.

6. Carefully line the upper lash line with Sigma Gel Liner and Sigma brush #E10 to create the perfect cat eye shape.

7. Use the applicator to apply adhesive glue to the Eylure Lengthening False Eyelashes and place on the lash-line.

8. Complete the look with Sigma Volumizing mascara!

CelebrityCrush of the Week: The Men of Star Wars!

crush of the week

Repeat after me: Oscar Isaac. Adam Driver. John Boyega.

Commit these names to memory, babes, because these are the fiiiiiine men of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and they are going to be gracing us with their presence for years to come! Oscar Isaac, 36, plays Poe Dameron (the handsome and quick-witted pilot that we’d let fly us anywhere in the galaxy), Adam Driver, 32, plays the brooding and babe-ly Kylo Ren (son of Han Solo and Princess Leia, who makes us want to give the Dark Side a shot), and John Boyega, 23, plays Finn (the stormtrooper with a conscience and a smile that will make you weak in the knees).

Basically, the fate of the galaxy is in the hands of these three, and, quite frankly, we are A-okay with that!
