Tip 1:  Use Anastasia Tweezers and a wheel of Swarovski crystals.
Tip 2:  Prime the eye with light shadow.  Oquendo used MAC Chromaline in white to “lend the crystals a sense of transparency.”
Tip 3:  Keep the rest of the face neutral, except for the black mascara.

Tip 1:  Use “rose-gold, metallic Swarovski” to keep it pretty and not too rock n’ roll.
Tip 2:  Apply silver eyeliner underneath.  “This is important because it adds structure” Oquendo said.
Tip 3:  Apply Duo Glue to the skin and then apply the studs close to the lashes.
Tip 4: Apply three studs to the outer corner of the eye.

Tip 1: Oquendo says this is the hardest look to pull off on your own if you’re not too crafty.  He recommends measuring your eye from the corner to the end and having a craft store cut your materials. Make sure they know it’s for facial application and to get rid of any sharp edges!
Tip 2:  Put the first strip in the crease so you can open your eye without it being annoying.  Then, add a small piece to the outer corner of the eye.
Tip 3:  Rim the bottom layer of the eye with black eyeliner.
Tip 4:  Apply a gold eye shadow onto the eye lid.
