Hi, I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to apply light eye makeup. As you can see, our model has dark hair and fair skin. So, we started out with a light foundation, and a soft pink blush on the cheeks. Now, what I'm going to do is add a soft pink on top of the eyelid to keep it very natural. And, what you want to do is just do soft, short strokes over the entire eyelid. Do the same thing to both of them, and that gives the model a soft look down there. Next, we're going to use a white shimmer, to kind of open the eye and pop it a little. So, we're going to start under the brow at the corner of the eye, and work your way all the end. And, that will create more of a soft, open eye look. Now, to top it off, we're not going to do any eyeliner, because that's more of a dark, you know, eye look. We're going to just stick with the mascara and the light eyeshadow. Look down for me. Just do soft, short strokes to the end of the eyelash. And, both sides. Okay, if you could look up for me. Now, when you're doing the bottom lashes, try to be more delicate, because they are very small and hard to find. So, just kind of do gentle strokes. Make sure you get them all covered, and you'll see them start to pop. Now, to top this look off, I'm just going to add a gloss. Go ahead and smudge them together for me. Now, that is how you apply light eye makeup. I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup artist.
