Puppy eyes are the thing of cute Korean girls and K-pop stars alike. I have adapted it to a less "asian" eye shape, and am eager to share it with you. I am very fond of this look and how cute it makes me feel. Please watch the video, as the instructions only serve as a text aide to it!
Step 1: Get a Cup of Water!!
we will be using it to put on our eyeshadow. Watch the video to see how!
Step 2: Moisturize + Face Base
Moisturizer IS my primer. Then I put on the face base (foundation). Here I use Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly.
Step 3: Powder It!
This will seal in your hard foundation work. I use Revlon Colorstay Powder in translucent.
Step 4: Blush + Highlight
Cream blush, powder blush.... doesn't matter, use your favorite! I used mine: Benefit's Majorette. My highlight is Benefit Sunbeam. Stippling brushes make highlighting super easy.
Step 5: Fill in Your Brows! (don't Disappoint Me...)
I love hard candy's brows now, which is more budget friendly than my other fave: Anastasia DipBrow Pomade. Either one is fab, just keep a brow groomer handy to blend if needed.
Step 6: Moving to the Cup of Water + Puppy Eye!
We have the base done now, so we can get the puppy eye on. Get your brush wet. Not enough to drip everywhere, but like you're about to do some watercolor painting. Here I use the darkest brown in the NYX Adorable palette. This look is easy if you use a small, flat, skinny brush. Draw your guidelines for the wing of the puppy eye. They should start at the outer corner of your eye and extend downward some. Make sure they are even before filling in. Draw lines from your lower lashline and upper lashline to meet your guideline and fill in the spaces.
Step 7: MASCARAAAA!!!!
Work one eye at a time, ladies. That way the curl doesn't fall out before you get mascara on it to lock it in. Seriously. All my favorite mascaras are Maybelline. You can't go wrong with maybelline mascara.
Step 8: Finish It With a Korean-style Pout.
Its all about the "ombre" lip there, but not as we know it here. The look is done by concentrating the most of the color on the inner part of the lip to make the mouth appear smaller. I use concealer to exaggerate the look.
