About the Expert
Hi, my name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a celebrity makeup artist and today I'm going to show daytime eye makeup for brown eyes. So for daytime makeup I always like to use something a little simple, you know, you're always in a rush in the morning. So a little shadow with a little sparkle and a little bit of eyeliner is all you need to get the day going. So to get the look I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadow in amber brush. So when you're choosing an eye shadow you can look for something that's a little warm, very appropriate for day wear. So we're going to start with our shadow, just at the base of the eye. For Bianca I want something that's in the brown tones for her beautiful brown eyes but I want it to have a little bit of shimmer so it just seems like it's a little extra. I don't like to continue the shadow because I think that's when it gets a little old school and not very appropriate for day wear. A very quick nice shimmer. I'm just softening the tip of the eyeliner and applying it to the base of the eyelid along the lash line just slightly above, kind of working it into the lash line so there's no line of demarcation. You don't want there to be a space between the eyelid and the lash line. I'm just going to wing the end just a little bit up. This is a black liner but if you're really fair you can choose a dark brown. So what I like about black eyeliner, just along the top lash line, it makes the lashes appear fuller. It also lifts the eye so if you're tired it's great to give the illusion that you're more awake and have almost rounder eyes actually. Now you see the difference between the two eyes, her finished eye as well as her naked eye. Just that little bit of shimmer adds life to her eyes and then of course, that black liner really defines the lashes. So I'm just finishing Bianca's right eye and I'm smudging the liner and smudging is really important because it just creates a really soft line as opposed to a hard harsh line. It's just going to make it look like more of a shadow, like it's naturally there, especially during the day when you want a softer look. You definitely don't want any hard lines. I'm just going in now afterwards and using my concealer brush at a 45 degree angle to kind of lift the end of that eye and cleaning up any under eye shadow fall from the shadow and liner. So one quick tip, choose appropriate shimmer for your profession. So if you're a lawyer, you might not want so much shimmer. For a student you can definitely go with that shimmer. So there you have it, a great daytime look for brown eyes. I'm Taylor Babaian. Thanks for watching.
