Holiday Beauty Tips From Beth Bender

Jennifer Garner’s Dramatic Eyes

Makeup artist Beth Bender suggests when creating this look on yourself to start with the eyes first. Start by lining the eyes with a black powder eyeshadow and line around the entire eye area. Keeping the line much thinner as you get closer to the inner corner of eye as seen her on Jennifer. Beth suggests using the Get in Line Stencil kit for lining both the top and bottom of eye.

Use your Cat eye stencil for the cat eye as seen here on Jennifer and the Bottom eyeliner stencil to line the bottom eye. Once you have lined the bottom eye use your brush to soften the line. Continue with this look by brushing a mixture of silver and lavender shadow on the upper inner eyelid and follow with a deep purple shadow from the outer corner, swept in. Try Double-o-Silver and Goddess Eye Dust, $16 at beth bender beauty. Make sure to blend all the shadow shades together to create "a seamless, smoky eye." Finish with two coats of mascara. Try Dior Show Mascara.

Keep the rest of your face soft with color. Try Baby Powder Blush and finish with a touch of Poppy Lip color from Laura Mercier.
