How-to Tips:

1. Emphasized Naya’s intense eyes with a show stopping molten metal reflection by layering dark shades of NP Set Day to Night Palette ($24) over her eye lid, blending the edges.

2. I then went over the top with NP Set All That Glitters Gel Duo in Sao Paulo ($10) to add depth and shimmer to the eye.

3. Around Naya’s lash line, I smudged Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Noir ($15) and then curled her lashes.

4. Next, I applied several coats of NP Set Glamorista Mascara ($16) which created a great base before adding some fluttery lashes.

5. I applied NP Set It Takes Two Concealer & Foundation Pot ($35) to create a flawless base to keep the look velvety smooth for hours.

6. Then, I applied NP Set Contour & Highlight Palette ($19) to provide beige through to warm bronzy tones on her cheek bones.

7. For shinier spots, I applied NP Set Pasarella Powder Foundation ($30) with a soft small fluffy brush to set her look.

8. I finished off her look with Pixi Succulent Lip Twin in Opal Orchid ($18) to create a neutral soft pinky lip.

· I wanted to create a statement makeup look, focusing on the eyes. I chose to create modern, smoky, elongated cat eyes with a wet, edgy, gunmetal look.

· I used a gray color palette for a monochromatic look. My inspiration behind the look was the beautiful blue and silver beading in her skirt.


How-to Tips:

1. Using the Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen in Mocha Mauve ($18), I applied the shadow to the entire eyelids and blended.

2. Next, I rimmed the entire eye with Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen in Graphite Glint ($18) and then blended both shades together.

3. I applied the matte taupe shade in the Pixi Shade Quartette in Shades of Taupe ($22), blending out the edges of the eye and up the shade to the brow.

4. I then used the two darker metallic shades on the eyelids for an edgy, wet look. Used the light shade in the palette to add definition to the cheek bones.

5. Using the darkest shade in the NP Set Eye Palette in Atlanta (20), I patted around the outer eyelid.

6. Next, I used the Pixi Lid and Line in Smoky Black ($18) to line the inner water line and upper lash line. This creates a definitive break from the brown and gray shades used in the eye shadows, further defining the eyes.

7. I chose to use the white and peach shades within the Pixi Eye Bright Kit ($25) to highlight the cheekbones and around the mouth. This works to pull the mouth forward, making the lips appear larger.

8. Then, I layered NP Set Pasarella Mascara in Black ($15) on the top and bottom lashes for volume.

9. I then applied the matte gray shade in the Pixi Shade Quartette in Shades of Taupe ($22) on her temples pencil to further contour her face and bring out her eyes.

10. To round out the look, I applied Pixi Beauty Bronzer + Kabuki Brush in Summertime ($21) along the forehead and jaw line giving a bit of warmth to the face.

11. Around the inner rim of the eyelids, I used the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Oyster Glow ($15) for added sparkle.

12. Lastly, I applied the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Oyster Glow ($15) on the back of my hand and then used a small makeup brush to gently buff some on the upper above her upper lip.
