PROUD BOLD WING
Penelope Cruz attended the “L’Immensita” photocall last month looking festive and fabulous in a black Chanel jacket and sparkling chandelier earrings.
The ‘Official Competition’ star wore her long brown locks in a half-up half-down with her wispy bangs parted in the middle.
Her soft minimal makeup look was completed with a strong winged eye that is perfect for just about any occasion.
To create a clean line like Penelope’s, Tomy’s secret weapon is a tapered corner brush.
“Use a tapered corner brush and black eyeshadow to trace the placement of your wing. After drawing your map with the eyeshadow, apply the sharpness with a liquid liner pen for precision.’
To clean the edges, the expert recommends using a concealer brush and a little foundation.
“I like to use a concealer brush and concealer as an eraser to sharpen the edge.”

“Some people find they can see their eyelid better by using a handheld mirror and aiming it high and above their forehead,” says Tomy.
But the New York-based artist and owner of an eponymous Washington Heights salon warns that this method doesn’t work for everyone.
Some beauty junkies rely on eyeliner tape to get a straight line, but Tomy says “I don’t like using anything that pulls on my skin around the eyes. I also feel that tape can create a very unnatural shape for the eyes.’
To prevent blemishes under the eyes, the beauty expert recommends applying an eye shadow below the lash line in the same color as your pencil.
Heidi Klum Looked Like She Just Stepped Off A Couture Runway At The People’s Choice Awards With Mesmerizing Ombre Eye Makeup
Supermodels are no stranger to experimental beauty, and at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, all eyes were on Heidi Klum.
The judges of ‘America’s Got Talent’ looked like she had just stepped off a couture catwalk wearing mesmerizing Ombre eye makeup.
“Green is a fantastic color for your makeup wardrobe this time of year because it makes the eyes beautiful,” said Tomy.
He adds, “Jeweled tinted green eyeshadow looks good on everyone and can be worn as eyeshadow or just as a pop eyeliner without the commitment of an all-green eye look.”

To get the show-stopping look, Tomy recommends applying a lightweight concealer all over the lid as a base and setting it with a loose powder.
Then apply your highlight color in the corners of the eyes and right under the eyebrow to the bone.
“Follow that with a cream satin finish shadow (I love the EpicLight Whispering Peach) to create the mess you want and as a base for the eyeshadow – this intensifies the pigments and locks them in for long-lasting wear.”
While Tomy isn’t a fan of eyeliner tape, he does recommend medical tape because of its soft hold.
“Use a small piece of medical paper tape to create a sharp corner right on the lash line towards the end of the brow.
“Then, blend your eye shadow over the cream shadow in a filling motion. Blur the edges with a small tapered blending brush (don’t over-blend) and fill in the top waterline with a black kohl eye pencil. Fill in any gaps between the lashes with the pencil, holding it tight against the lash line.
“Use a liner brush and blend the pencil — you want a creamy texture to brush through to create the illusion of a fuller lash line.”
Tomy favors individual lashes to create a fluffy wispy look like Heidi’s, and a double coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

To recreate the James Charles look, Tomy recommends tracing two lines with light pencil shades, then covering them with a brighter liquid liner and using concealer in the exact shade of your skin tone to clean up any flaws
More is more for beauty YouTuber, James Charles, so it came as no surprise that the 23-year-old attended the 2022 People’s Choice Awards sporting an inspiring makeup look we were dying to copy: double wings.
According to Tomy, the trick to getting such perfect lines starts with finding a cream concealer that perfectly matches your skin tone.
“Using a pencil a few shades lighter than the final liner you’ll be using, draw two lines on your lid.
“Once you have your outline, paint them with liquid liner.”
For a flawless finish, Tomy recommends using a brush and concealer to clean up any flaws and enhance the shape of the lines, then powder with a colorless, translucent powder to keep the lines from blending.
