Behind The Sticks | Episode 19: Eye Makeup Looks To Wear With Your Mask
Written by Jenn Kapahi August 07, 2020
Face masks have become an essential part of our daily routines and just because we are covering up our faces most of the time, doesn't mean we have to sacrifice our beauty routines! For today’s Behind The Sticks, the team wanted to share their makeup tips on how to play up your eyes when you're going out and staying safe. Read on for a tutorial of our favorite bold eye makeup looks to wear with a mask!
“My go-to essential eye products when I’m wearing a mask are the Brow Pencil in Americano, Shadow Crayon in Aspen Shimmer, Eye Pencil in Swiss Chocolate and Good Vibes Mascara. I start with the Shadow Crayon and glide it directly onto my eyelid. For a more dramatic look, I’ll layer on the color and then blend the edges out with the blending brush on the other end. Then I use the Eye Pencil to create short, even strokes, and glide the pencil along my upper and lower lash lines. I finish off my eyes with the Good Vibes Mascara. I also use the brow pencil to fill in my sparser brow areas and then I use the gel to set them in place. And that’s it! An easy bold eye look to wear with your face mask.”

"Our Shadow Crayon in Burgundy Shimmer is a great shade to make my eyes pop when wearing a face mask. Once I apply Burgundy Shimmer, I then go in with my Venetian Shimmer and I pop that in the center of my lid. This brightens the look and makes the burgundy stand out even more! Then I use our Santorini Black Sand Eye Pencil. I love the mini version of this Eye Pencil because it gives me more control when applying to my waterline. I also add a little wing in the outer corner of my eye. Lastly I use Good Vibes Mascara to lengthen and curl my lashes. For my brows, I use our Brow Pencil in Espresso. Then I grab my mask and go!"

“When I'm out and about (of course wearing my mask), I like to make my eyes pop a bit more! I blend Venetian Shimmer and Kona Shimmer Shadow Crayons on my lid (Kona on the outer corner and Venetian on the inner) and then define my eyes with our Eye Pencil in Santorini Black Sand. I complete the eye look with my Brow Pencil and Mascara and I’m all ready to go!

"Since I started wearing a face mask while going out, my go-to eye products have been: our Shadow Crayon in Aspen Shimmer, Santorini Black Sand Eye Pencil, Brow Pencil in Espresso and Good Vibes Mascara. Aspen Shimmer is an amazing shade for a different take on a smoky eye. It's a beautiful earthy green, that blends out for a really pretty look."

“I love doing a halo eye look when wearing a mask! It’s a really pretty and ethereal look that shines a spotlight on your eyes. I start by using our Shadow Crayon in Kona Shimmer on my inner corners and then use it to create a rounded shade on the outer corners. I then use Morimoto Shimmer to fill in the empty space that I left in the center of my lid. Morimoto works so well to blend out Kona. Make sure to use the blending brush to soften the edges for a true halo effect! I define my eyes with our Eye Pencil in Swiss Chocolate (both the upper and lower lashline!) and use the smudger on the opposite end to make the line less harsh. Of course I can’t forget my Brow Pencil in Americano - it’s my holy grail brow product! I love how it makes my brows look naturally thick and fluffy. I top off the look by curling my lashes and apply Good Vibes Mascara to my top and bottom lashes.”
