    Suzanne Minskey: Hi! My name is Suzanne Minskey with Faces by Sam Makeup Artistry. Today I am showing you how to apply a beautiful fall look for your wedding and this segment; we are going to discuss how to frame the eyes with your brows.

    First, we are going to start off with a brow powder, just a little bit darker than your brows if you have fair brows and if you have really deep dark eye brows you want to go with a shade just slightly lighter. You want to choose a tone that is slightly grayish. Anything to red or to orange will show up on the skin as looking very, very false. Any cooler tone with the little bit of grain, it mimics the shadows and you want to make it a little bit more shadowed to help -- to find them in photographs.

    So what we want to do is take your angled brow brush, dip it in the brow powder and starting along the bottom, fallow the shape along adding just a little bit every time in short little strokes because you want to it to mimic the hairs with brows. Now if you have any loose hairs, you can go back in and tweeze them but you want to basically a nice soft arch. I want it to start right about here, and right about there with an arch that follows a similar shape to the top of your lip that will help the face look a little bit more balanced.

    Next, you want to take some brow wax, apply a little bit to brow brush and stroke along the hairs and just smoothing that down with the brow wax. Now you can either take an old mascara wand or a spooley which you can purchase at any beauty shop, some makeup lines sold them at their makeup counters as well. And just go over once real quick to smooth them out. You want to brush up at the beginning and outwards and straight down to the sides.

    This really helps to frame the eyes without doing too much more to it, your eyes will definitely help pop. Like you put a frame around the photograph to help it stand out from the wall, the brows will help to frame your eyes and really make them show up in photographs and that's how to frame your eyes.

    In the next segment, we are going to discuss how to apply beautiful eye shadow to really help your eyes pop a little bit more in pictures.
