Cotton pads for quick make up
I have found an easy way to make a quick dark eye look. I use a cotton pad for pattern. I cut it side in oval shape, then add it to my eye and start applying the shadows.
It's supper quick and looks really good. I always had problems painting my eyes symmetric. I have a witch mark on my eyelid and it always gets in a way making heavy make up :D And with cotton pads there is no need of drawing lines all you have to do is shade and add extra lines after it. You can experiment with it too...

So give a try and leave me a comment if it was useful. Or maybe you are already using such thing :)

    If you are not sure about your abilities to cover the top lid, use a cotton pad pattern too. The edges will be clear and symmetric.

Using a cotton pad you cut curves into? Genius. Also, you have extremely lovely eyes.

well. I tried cello tape, but I didn't liked it that much. It's hard to cut its very thin and you can't manipulate it that well. when I'm out of gotton pads I just use a paper napkin. Or a paper tovel,,, :)

What an awesome idea! I'm going to show this to my daughter; she's always asking me, "is there more makeup on one eye than the other?" (like I can tell!? :*-/)

My daughter does her eye makeup quite differently (yours is beautiful!), but using a template/pattern like this will make sure the eye makeup is even no matter what the style!

Brilliant idea! *Thanks* for taking the time to share it!
