Aqua & Bronze Eye Makeup Tutorial:
Today I want to share a really fun eye look with you all that I’ve been wearing when I’m in the mood for something different and colorful. The cream shadow featured here is from Smashbox and it’s called Neptune. I recently reviewed a whole bunch of these cream shadows and promised some tutorials using them and so here's the first! The reason this specific one caught my eye is because it’s a really interesting color- depending what light you are in it kind of looks a little more blue or a little more green. You’ll be able to see that in the tutorial below. I also find that blues and greens compliment my hazel brown eyes quite nicely!
Without further ado, here’s a fun teal step by step eye makeup look. I did include the names of the items I used below but any similar products and colors can be used!
1. With a flat cream shadow brush apply a nice layer of teal cream shadow (Smashbox Neptune Cream Shadow) all over the eyelid starting at the center of the eyelid working it up and out into the crease winging it out a little at the outer corner.
2. Dip the brush back into that same cream shadow and apply the product to the lower lash line all the way to the inner corner connecting the lines all the way around.
3. With a crease brush (Mac 217) blend a bronze shade ( I used an actual Revlon bronzer for this) through the crease in windshield wiper motions and place it into the outer “v” area a bit as well.
4. Using a small flat shader brush pat a gold shadow (urban decay’s half baked) into the inner corner of the eye and about an inch over blending into some of that teal color and up into the crease with that bronze shade just to blend them all together seamlessly.
5. Using an angled eyeliner brush (mine was from the e.l.f studio line) apply a gel liner (mac blacktrack fluidline) to the lower waterline.
6. With a thin eyeliner brush add a little of that same gel eyeliner to the upper lash line smudging it into the lashes so that it’s not very noticeable but creates a very black base.
7. Apply mascara (LORAC Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara) generously to the upper lashes.
8. And then to the lower ones too.
9. To finish the look, add a light shimmery white or beige eye shadow (White Iridescent Eyeshadow from LORAC Starry Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Quad) to the brow bone as a highlight.
