It's always good to broaden your color spectrum every once and a while. Especially when you don't want to get pinched for not wearing Green on St. Patricks day, why not play in some makeup! Makeup for me is another place where I can just be creative and have some ME time. Everyone has their "thing" that they do to make themselves happy inside, mine is getting Glam'd. With that being said let's get into this look!
Personally I start with my Brows and Eye makeup before my full face, everyone has their preference and that is mine. But for a tutorial just on an Eye look I will start with most of the face complete.
Step 1. Apply your primer to the lid.
Step 2: Start your base color, back and forth motion, with a blending eye shadow brush.
Step 3: If you are adding depth or a crease color, begin in the same motion and remember BLENDING IS YOUR FRIEND, THE NAME OF THE GAME. I think often people get intimidated by makeup not remembering that nothing is permanent. It is as easy as a makeup wipe away from getting it right. Also half the time a mistake can be fixed by MORE blending dolls. Finally, if it looks a mess from all the blending you will definitely be able to clean up the edges once the look is near completion so don't worry about it.
Step 4: Now, The fun part. If your primer has lost it's consistency you can re apply on the lid to be sure to grab the pigment of your lid color. In this case, St. Patty's day Green. I am using the Matte Hunter Green from the Morphe Brushes eye shadow pallet. I use the press method for things I want high pigment, not back and forth application for this one. Sometimes spritzing your brush with Fix+ spray from MAC will bring more pigment to your makeup.
Step 5: For this look I am doing a sheen glitter highlight. You want to use any method you know to make this as pigmented in the least amount of swipes possible. Swipes as in using a paint type brush in placing the glitter exactly where you want it. Glitter can be messy, but in this case I used a pressed sheen type of glitter and they are definitely not as bad as loose glitter or pigment.
Step 6: We can begin the final stages. Liner, for the top I am going to do a winged liner and for the bottom the dot method to enhance the bottom lashes, both done with Inglot 77 gel liner. This is also where we will clean up the edges from the excess blending lol. For the wing liner, we all get anxious about, the key to success. Stop over thinking it. If you just follow the angle of your shadow and draw the line out then in another swipe connect back with your top liner you will be fine and REMEMBER anything can be fixed.
Step 7: Final and FAV part that takes your look from an Ehh to and EHH AMAZING level, Lashes! For this fierce St. Patty's day look I am using MOOD: SLAY lashes, from Alör Cosmetics.
That's All folks! Slay my Alör Beauties!
