I’ve been dreaming about going to the sea again. Hence why I was drawn to blue and green eye shadow while I was playing with makeup yesterday.
It’s been a while since I did a sorta makeup tutorial so I hope you enjoy this one. 🙂
This is the blank canvas. My skin just came from it’s monthly breakout so you can still see the pimples and it’s a bit splotchy.
Thank God for foundation, though. Makes such a difference. It evens out my skin tone and tames the redness. Here I used Mary Kay’s Luminous Wear foundation:
For this look, you will definitely need an eye primer. This will make your eye shadow last longer and will also intensify the colors. I used Elf’s Eye Primer stick.
Now let’s move on to the base eye shadow. I’m using my Doll Face Vanity Palette and chose a turquoise matte eye color. I’m sweeping on a base to prevent the shadow from creasing due to the creamy primer.
Then, I took a deep blue eye shadow and applied it on the outer corner of my eyes. Start by forming the shape you want then blend it in. Below, I did the process on one eye and left the other untouched first so you can compare.
Don’t worry too much about blending the blue yet. Because now you’re going to add a shimmery green color to match the bluish-green tones of the sea. For me, I chose a silver green shimmery eye shadow still from the Doll Face Vanity Palette.
By the way, make sure to take the blue and green down under your lower lashes as well. Blue on the outer corners then green at the center like so:
At this point, my camera died so while it was charging, I decided to put rollers on my hair just to try and curl it. Haha 🙂
Now, using the palest blue eye shadow you have, dab it on the inner corner of your eyes – both on the lids and the lower part.
Just to add a little more depth, I took a purple color and blended along my crease and the outer corners of my eyes.
Ok, to tie down the colors, I used my Tony Moly Backstage Gel Eyeliner to add a thin line close to my lash line and also down on my water line.
To complete the eyes, I curled my lashes with my Shu Uemura lash curler and used the only mascara I have at the moment – Revlon’s Custom Eyes.
Before I moving on with the face, let’s not forget to fill in our brows. Keep it as natural looking as possible so it doesn’t compete with the eyes.
Ok, now let’s clean up the face with our favorite concealers. Mine’s Mac Studio Finish concealer. Apply it under the eyes, around the nose, on your blemishes, and anywhere that needs more coverage.
After concealing, dab some translucent powder on your T-zone and anywhere that’s shiny. Then, apply your favorite bronzer on the hollows of your cheeks. Sweep on your favorite sheer pink blush on the apples of your cheeks then put on your favorite gloss. For my look, I used The Balm’s Sexy Mama translucent powder, Palladio’s bronzer, Mary Kay’s Shy Blush, and a mixture of Revlon’s fuchsia and Mary Kay’s Nourishine gloss in Fancy Nancy on my lips.
And now you’re finished! 🙂
Here’s my summer sea look with my hair down. 🙂
Make up’s amazing right? It can take you right from dull to fab! 😀
