Putting on my makeup is the most relaxing part of my day. It is literally the only time of the day where I don’t feel an ounce of anxiety, even if at first I might’ve woken up a little cranky. Here are two looks that I personally consider Super-Duper Mood & Confidence Boosters and I’m glad I actually took the time to properly photograph them.  I’ve been really into doing red around the eyes. Could it be that a little part of me wants to pay tribute to 14 Year-Old Kham who loved My Chemical Romance? Perhaps (…yes). It started out as something I was just experimenting with but now I find myself using red more often, and using it more intensely every time. I think it looks really cool even when worn on its own!

THE LOOK: Turquoise Underliner
TRY: Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in (Intro)Vert. Slick meets stick in this layerable pencil that draws on infinite custom-color combinations.
DO IT IN…30 SECONDS: Using your ring finger, gently pull your under-eye area to fully expose the waterlines and sketch a gel pencil onto them. Press on a matching powder shadow to prolong wear and prevent fading.
TIP: Finish the look with a rich black mascara to make the color stand out.

THE LOOK: Cobalt Cat Eye
TRY: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Cobalt. Draw the perfect, vivid cat eye with concentrated shocks of quick-dry, long-wear color.
DO IT IN…1 MINUTE: With your eyes open and head tilted back, drag the marker along your lash lines, extending the line slightly past the outer corners. Connect the tails to the center of the lash lines, forming a long triangle, and fill in the shape for a flicked look. Layer the color to build the line to your desired thickness.
TIP: To ensure clean, symmetrical lines, rest your elbow on a countertop to steady your hand.

THE LOOK: Fuchsia Accented Eye
TRY: Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet. This budge-proof pencil creates a creamy matte base for playful color.
+ SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Eyeliner 24HR Waterproof in Love Song. Twenty-four-hour wear in one stroke. Flick on bright shades that withstand water, heat, and humidity.
DO IT IN…3 MINUTES: Drag a black pencil liner along the waterlines, then glide the same liner along the top lash lines, winging it out towards the browbones. Apply a liquid liner underneath the outer edges to create a two-toned wing and on the inner corners to add a daring slash of color.
TIP: Sharpen the graphic shape with a cotton bud dipped in eye-makeup remover.
