When I was younger, I used to love colourful eyeshadow, and would impulsively buy it and rarely use it. Luckily for me, I still had teal and purple shadows lying around for this challenge.
This tutorial can create either a dreamy, colourful look, or more of an edgier look. It can be used with any colour combination really, I just happened to have these colours already. I think it would look really great with blue/green or purple/blue combos as well.
You want to start with a perfect base, so as not to distract from the eyeshadow. I perfected my complexion with Diorshow’s Airflash Foundation.
With a stiff, flat brush, apply MAC eyeshadow in Satellite Dreams to your eyelid. You don’t need to cover the whole thing, just be sure to concentrate the colour along the upper lash line. Then starting from the inner corner, apply a MAC’s Steamy along the lower lash line. When you reach the edge of the eye, create a diagonal line with the eyeshadow to form a cat-eye. Connect the eyeshadow to where the purple shade on your eyelid ends. Blend the edges of the cat-eye with a cotton swab to soften the line.
You can stop here if you want a dreamier look, apply mascara and you’re done.
If you want to kick it up a notch, grab some black eyeliner and trace along your tight-line and water-line, including the tear duct. Finish it off with some mascara.
You can to keep your lips and cheeks fairly muted with such bright colours going on. I applied only a touch of Nars’ Orgasm to my cheeks, and the subdued Rouge Coco lipstick in Mademoiselle.
