I had the opportunity to work with Kylie Jenner recently. It was a pleasure to work with her and alot of fun. Since she is 13, i had to keep the make up to a minimum but she still looked fabulous. The wonderful and talented Monica Rose was styling and hairstylist Alon Shalom. Here are just a few BTS and images of the shoot.

Say No to Tarantula eyes!!!!! lol... remember that commercial?! ;) Lashes are a big deal when it comes to makeup.. you have to make sure the lashes are on point so your eyes stand out even more after the eyeshadow, the liner and all that eye makeup.. the main thing to focus on is length and volume. To achieve this you must make sure your eyelashes are properly curled, and the mascara is the right one for you.
Eyelash curler: A spoon (yes, you can curl your lashes with a spoon but that's a whole different post.. lol ) , Shiseido or Shu Eumura are the best.. not only do they wrap around perfectly on the eyelid, they also have a strong grip to get the perfect curl on the eyelashes. When you curl you place the eyelash curler right on the rim of the lash line.. give it one strong squeeze and slowly while squeezing on and off with the curler pull outwards towards the sky... ;)
Mascara: There are two that i truly LOVE!! Bad Gal Lash by Benefit and Lash Injection by Too Faced.. Both have the big brush that will help with volume.. although the consistency of both are very similar, Lash Injection is waterproof. When applying mascara.. remember to coat every lash.. trust me.. it makes a difference. Start at the lash line from under the lashes by wiggling the brush side to side to separate the lashes. Once you have mascara on the lashes along the lash line, you can pull out with the brush all the way to the end of the lash. **you can put on as many coats as desired .. i prefer a few for a fuller look** let the first coat dry before applying more. Put less mascara on the bottom lashes to open up the eyes even more.
If necessary use a lash comb to remove any clumps of mascara.
Lashes make a HUGE difference on the eye.. it not only makes your eye makeup stand out more but it also opens the eyes up!! soooo Lash Out!! ;)
