About the Expert
Hi, my name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a celebrity makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to do your eyes quickly. So one of the great ways to do your makeup quickly is to find products that multi task. So to get this look I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets One Sweep Eye Shadow in Playful for all eyes. So normally when I'm doing an eye shadow look I would use three different color eye shadows and several different brushes but L'Oreal actually created something that has all three shadows together and then one brush to get them all on together. So what you're going to do is you're going to basically take your brush, kind of rub it onto the shadows so that it picks up. It has a nice foam applicator so it actually is going to pick up a lot more product then let's say like a regular brush would. So we have the lighter color for the highlight of the eye, the base color and the contour color which is fantastic. Now you're basically going to apply it to the base of the eye. This is actually a really good thing for novices too because you're not really sure where the light color goes, where the medium color goes and where the dark color goes and this is already set out for you. So you see the lighter color at the highlight of the brow and you can just blend that together. So then go with the shape of the eye, just kind of rock it back and forth initially just to get that pigment on there and then just rub it on. So I love this application technique for novices because one it actually shows you where the colors go. I love that the lighter color goes on the brow bone which is where the lighter color is supposed to go and then you have the medium color at the base of the lid and then the darkest color at the base of the lash line which is kind of the way that we pro makeup artists actually apply shadows. And then you can just take a Q tip and kind of just softly blend. So we've finished both Bianca's eyes and you can see it creates this beautiful almost metallic bronze look. What I did was I actually went ahead and applied it with the sponge so that I could see my layers, my little contour layer at the base, the highlight at the brow bone and then what I did was also intensify it a little bit more with the lash line. I added a little bit more brown at the lash line, kind of winged it out a little bit. So you can feel free to kind of play with it. It's just a great guideline to show you where to apply the colors and it's really great for novices. So there you have it, a great simple way to do your eyes quickly. I'm Taylor Babaian. Thanks for watching.
