New England Patriots eye makeup tutorial for a gorgeous game face
It’s that time of year again and football fans everywhere are gearing up (literally) to root on their favorite team in Super Bowl XLIX. With the Seahawks having won last year, I know a lot of us hope to see the New England Patriots take hold of this year’s ring.

- MAC Paint Pot in Painterly ($21, MAC)
- Sugarpill Love + Pressed Shadow (Sugarpill, $12)
- Sugarpill Velocity Pressed Shadow (Sugarpill, $12)
- NYX Milk Jumbo Liner (NYX, $5)
- Glitter purchased from Michael's craft store

- Urban Decay "Perversion" Liner
Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow base to help prevent creasing and to increase the pigment of color. I used Painterly Paint Pot from MAC Cosmetics.
Step 2: Using an angled brush and a red shadow, start from the middle and draw a curved line right above the crease. Then use a blue shadow and extend the line to the inner crease.
Step 3: Switch to a clean tapered blending brush with minimal product on the brush and start to blend out the line. Try to keep the inner blue part more square to give that Patriot helmet look.
Step 4: From here you want to use your imagination and freehand a few strokes to give almost a flag appearance. Then take a white liner (NYX Milk) and draw a straight line from the inner corner of the eye, the waterline, and extend it out straight directly from the waterline.
Step 5: Apply a white shadow to the lid and then place glitter on top of the white. I used a mixing medium to keep the glitter in place. You can also use clear eyelash glue so you don't get a lot of fallout.
Step 6: Using an angled brush, draw a half-blue and half-red line with shadow just beneath the white line along the under eye.
Step 7: Apply black mascara and lashes and the look is complete! I did go back in to perfect the lines on the outer part, lining it with the same white liner to give it a more crisp look.
Enjoy your look for the game!
