Sephora opened its third store in Hawaii at Waikiki Shopping Plaza on Kalakaua Avenue offering more than 13,000 products from more than 200 brands, including Sephora’s own collection of makeup, skincare, tools, accessories, and bath and body products. Sephora also recently introduced the Sephora Beauty Studio featuring complimentary 10- to 15-minute express service consultations with a Sephora cast member. Express services include a crash course in makeup application, such as smoky eyes, candy-colored eyes, cat eyes, natural eyes, blush and bronze, dark lips and a perfect pout. Special event makeovers also are available by appointment and a minimum purchase of $50 is required.

Sephora also is located in Ala Moana Center and Pearlridge. For more information, call 923-3301. Featured here are four makeup looks by Sephora beauty educator Tracey Otake.

Natural Eye Express Service

Step 1: Prime - Apply an eye primer (Sephora Collection Perfecting Eye Primer, $14) from the lash line to the brow bone and under the lower lash line to help provide a foundation for eye shadow to adhere, blend easier and promote longevity of look.

Step 2: Shade - Apply a neutral eye shadow (Sephora Collection Beauty in a Box Natural Eye Tutorial; $36) with a brush from lash line to brow to create a natural, even base.

Step 3: Define - Apply a rich, brown eyeliner (Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in matte brown/black, $12) around the entire eye and onto the center of the lid to shape the eye and provide a foundation for the eye shadow to adhere and blend. Then blend eyeshadow lightly to the creases of the eye and use small circular strokes to blend the two textures of product together.

Step 4: Highlight - Apply a shimmery eyeshadow (Sephora Moonshadow Trio in Sunbaked N2, $17) with a brush from lash line to brow to create a highlight that will contrast with the eye liner.

Step 5: Curl eyelashes (Sephora Eyelash Curler, $16) and apply a light coat of mascara to the top lashes only (Sephora Atomic Volume Ultra Black, $15).

Cat Eye Express Service

Step 1: Frame - Using a brow pencil (Sephora sculpting brow pencil, $10), shape your arches so they start directly above the inner corner of the eye, peak just above the outer iris and end where an imaginary diagonal line from your nostril to the outer corner of the eye would hit your brows.

Step 2: Highlight - Pat eye primer (Sephora Collection Perfecting Eye Primer, $14) on lid from lash line up to brow bone. Then with a concealer brush, cover entire lid from lash line to brow bone with a neutral shadow (Sephora Collection Beauty in a Box Natural Eye Tutorial; $36).

Step 3: Line - Trace around your entire eye, close to the lash line, with black waterproof eyeliner (Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in black, $12)

Step 4: Refine - With a black liquid liner, draw a thin line across your upper lash line, tailing it out at the end for extra definition and a winged effect. Finish with mascara.

Smoky Eye Express Service

Step 1: Prime - Pat eye primer (Sephora Collection Perfecting Eye Primer, $14) on lid from lash line up to brow bone and directly under eye.

Step 2: Line - Trace around your entire lid with cream eyeliner (Sephora Collection Smoky Waterproof Cream Eyeliner, $10), concentrating color on the lid, along lash line.

Step 3: Define - Using a tapered brush, apply a deep shadow (Sephora Collection Beauty In a Box Smoky Eyes Palette, $36) over the cream eyeliner on your top lid, blending well to smudge the color.

Step 4: Refine - Line the inner rim of your lower lash line with a waterproof eye liner (Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in black, $12).

Step 5: Curl eyelashes (Sephora Eyelash Curler, $16), and finish with mascara (Sephora Collection Advanced Lash Booster, $17).

Candy-Colored Eye Express Service

Step 1: Prime - Apply eye cream (Fresh Lotus Eye Gel, $48), and follow with eye primer (Sephora Collection Perfecting Eye Primer, $14) from the lash line to the brow bone and under the lower lash line to help provide a base for the shadow to adhere, blend easier and promote longevity of look.

Step 2: Shine - Using a large eye shadow brush (Sephora Collection IT Medium Shader-Natural Brush, $20), press into the eye shadow (Sephora Collection Endless Color Blockbuster, $48, used the green and neutral colors to create look) to lift the powder. Invert the brush with bristles facing the lash line then press in small controlled motions to highlight the center of the eye and blend out over the entire lid.

Step 3: Line - Line the upper lash line with a waterproof eyeliner (Sephora Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in Grass is Greener, $10) starting out thin near the inner corner of the eye and thicker as you progress to the outer corner. Line the inner rim of your lower lash line with a black waterproof eyeliner.

Step 4: Finish with mascara (Sephora Collection Advanced Lash Booster, $17)
