Jacqueline Bush: Hi, I'm Jacqueline Bush, contributing makeup artist and hairstylist for beso.com. Today I'm going to show you how to get a clean, strong eye.

I'm going to use a cream based foundation, mixing two colors together, just blending that in. To set that in, I'm going to use a little bit of powder, tapping off the excess.

The next thing I'm going to do is I'm using a cream based shadow and an angle brush. Then, starting underneath, right along the lash line, going in at the base of the lashes [inaudible 00:46] that in. I'm going to go ahead and fill in just the corners. Then I'm going to go back in, and at the base of the lash line on top, I'm going to fill it in. Then extend it out, and then connecting it on bottom.

Can take a fan brush, wiping up excess product. Starting with a lash curler, we're going to curl her lashes and then add mascara. You're going to start at the base of your lashes, curling once, then to the middle of your lashes curling again, and then to the ends. Then, adding mascara using a back and forth motion. For the bottom lashes, using a flat base brush, taking some mascara from the wand and brushing it on the lashes.

One last tip for that is, make sure you really get in strongly along the base of the lash line. That's the key to getting that strong, natural eye. For more tips and tricks, come hang out with us at beso.com.
