Vibrant Eyes

Julianne Kaye

Nothing brings eyes out more beautifully than a vibrant eye effect look. Eye Studio® Color Explosion™ Luminizing Eyeshadow perfectly achieves the dual, jewel-toned effect that lights up eyes. Makeup artist Julianne Kaye takes us backstage to show us how to create this vibrant eye look in 5 easy steps.

Build a Base

Start with Eye Studio® Color Explosion™ Luminizing Eyeshadow in Forest Fury. Find the base shade, located at the bottom of the pan, and pat it on with a fluffy brush all over the upper lid.


Make It Vibrant

Find the lid color, located in the left pan, and apply the vibrant green shade all over the lid, tapping it on with a dense brush. Pat it in rather than brushing it on, to heighten intensity. Stop the color where the crease of the eye begins.


Light the Fuse

Find the crease shade in the right of the pan and, using a small angled brush, apply to the lower lash line, moving from the inner eye outwards. Blend just enough for a firm, even line. If you wish, drag the color down for more drama.


Compare and Contrast

For heightened contrast, and to make that jeweled look sparkle, use Eye Studio® Master Drama™ Cream Pencil in Midnight Master. Work from the outside of the eye inwards and then line your water line.


Ignite the Vibrant Look

For a vibrant finish apply Illegal Length™ Fiber Extensions Mascara. The unique fibers take lashes to new heights of drama. Repeat Steps 1-5 on the other eye. Now eyes look vivaciously vibrant day or night.
