mode cat eye - backstage Alice + Olivia 2012 

what you'll need:
stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner in black

liquid liner and several coats of black mascara always seem to be on trend, the reason is because this look can be flattering on every eye shape. the key element is placement of your product!
bombshells today are pulling off this look fabulously by relying on products like stila's stay all day liquid liner in black and wearing it with sparkle waterproof liquid liner in a bright color such as bora bora a beautiful turquoise.

you have to commit to a feature and maximize it. the cat eye in black will define eyes and look sophisticated. i loved how the sparkle liner looks as an eye shadow, so i painted it on lids with a concealer brush. stila #26 brush is the ideal size for this trick. you can sweep off as much pigment from the sponge soaked liner wand and paint your eyelids. two coats for opaque color like i did backstage at alice & olivia.

tip & trick:
if you are doing your own makeup, a great tip to try when applying liquid liner is to apply your mascara first to determine eye shape. then create the cat eye liner, you will have an easier time creating the “flare” and flip at the end. to recreate the white liner look, stick to a pencil and set it with moonlight, a white metallic shadow. this combo looks like acrylic paint patent shine! apply full strip of lashes and keep rest of your makeup clean and polished.

what you'll need:
custom color blush in coral

there is nothing softer and more romantic than pretty cheeks and doe eyes.  recreate this look with stila's custom color blush  self adjusting coral. if you tend to over do it with bronzer, simply pop a bit of coral blush on top and you will balance it all out and remain gorgeous. this blush takes the effort out of finding the perfect shade because it looks amazing on all skin tones. it has a soft rose gold shimmer built in to add radiance and allow your to blend easily. 

bright glossy pink was the showstopper at betsey johnson. if you can't see it from the back row, it's not bright enough! i love mixing lipsticks to create the perfect shade, mix exhilarating and outrageous long wear lip color to create a "neon" lip, then apply loads of sheer gloss in pink on top, silk shimmer gloss in kitten is ideal for adding mega shine to any lip color you chose. try mixing stila long wear liquid lip color in petal and caprice for a new "mod" pink lip! leave lips matte for day and add shine at night for more glamour. 

lashes, lashes, and more lashes! if you have ever been backstage with me, you have probably heard me say "more mascara"!!! i use a fan mascara brush to cake on layers of mascara when i need to glam up quickly. stila made a mascara fan brush years ago and i always seem to have it handy backstage. we don't sell the brush but i have a few stashed away for the next sarah's tips & tricks giveaway!
 add 2 coats of glamoureyes mascara to your lashes.  coat more in the center to create a doe-eyed look. this formula is glossy and juicy so you can layer as many coats as you desire and never have to worry about cakey and clumpy mascara.

tip & trick:
focus on sculpting and shaping your features by using neutral matte medium tone around the lash line and in crease. softly shape cheekbones with powder bronzer, this will enhance your natural beauty...and will turn on the glam factor.
