covergirl eye enhancers...look #1

It's official...we're so crushing on Molly Stern. We had a chance to sit in on a webinar featuring the phenomenal Molly and watched (live) as she created three looks using pieces of the new collection from CoverGirl!

Remember those CoverGirl Eye Enhancers that we sneak peeked a while back? The ones with the crazy color combinations? Well Molly took those palettes and created some gorgeous wearable day looks that would actually work in the real world.

First up is the Dazzling or Blazing Eye look. Starting off with the CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 3 Kit in Dazzling Metallics ($4).

Using the coppery shade and a big eyeshadow brush (try MAC Cosmetics 213 Fluff Brush), work it into the crease and bring it down toward the outside of the upper lid. Then flip the brush over and pick up some of the buttery yellow shade and work that onto the lid. Go back in and touch up the copper a little if needed.

For the next step, take a flat eyeliner brush (try the 263 Small Angle Brush) and wet it a little. Pick up the black color and line the upper lash line with it...make sure to soften it with your finger. Think soft and diffused, not strong and bold.

Get another one of your eyeliner brushes (try the 231 Small Shader Brush) and add some of the copper shade beneath your lower lashes for a smokey effect.

Finish off the eyes with a couple of coats of CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara in Black and your eyes are done.

For the cheeks, she actually used the pink eyeshadow from the CoverGirl Eyehancers 3 Kit in Firecracker ($4)!

Just grab your favorite blush brush (like the 116 Blush Brush) and apply to the apples of your cheeks. Use a light hand...your eyes are the center of attention here.

For the final dose of oomph, take your lip brush (try the 316 Lip Brush) and apply your Amazemint Lip Gloss in Red Riot. It's a gorgeous shade and one of our faves.

That's it...a fabulous look on the cheap!

Just to make it easier for you, we've included the actual sketch that Molly did for the look we've explained here. Click on the picture above to enlarge.

Stay tuned for look number two...Caribbean Eyes!
