I usually wear very simple and safe colors so I decided to do something different for a change! I whipped out a few interesting eyeshadows from my collection to see what I could do with them and I hope you guys enjoy this look~
These are the shadows I am using for your reference. I swatched all of these shadows over E.L.F's Mineral Eyeshadow Primer and you can use any colors from your collection that look similar. The first shade is a shimmery champagne and the one I used is the highlight shade from Maybelline's Eyestudio quad in Copper Chic (reviewed and swatched HERE). The next two green colors are from Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips for Smokey Green Eyes (reviewed and swatched HERE). The duochrome green brown and the matte brown are from Too Faced's
As usual conceal dark circles and apply an eyeshadow primer to help your shadows last all day and night. I used E.L.F's Mineral Primer.
I applied Nyx's Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean as a base for my powder shadows to stick to so I get more intense color. You only need a bit of a black or brown cream base for this step so be sure not to apply too much or your shadows will crease!
Using your finger, blend the cream up and outward toward the browbone. As you can see the black is not as apparent once it is blended out but you only want a sticky base.
Load a light moss green onto a flat shader brush. This shade is the second shade from the left swatched above in the reference picture.
Apply this shade to the inner half of your eyelid and into the inner corner as well using a patting motion to pack on the most pigment.
Using the same shader brush, take the darker moss brown which you will be adding to the rest of the lid.
Keep the color at the lid and try not to apply too much color into the crease area. Blend the middle of the lid where the two moss shades meet with the shader brush to create a seamless transition.
On a fluffy blending brush, take the matte midtone brown and blend out any harsh edges in the crease.
Place the duochrome green brown on the outer third of the lid with a small crease brush.
Blend once again with the fluffy blending brush to unify the greens together. Also line your lower lashline with the duochrome green. Go over the middle of the lower lashline with the darker moss green.
Apply the shimmery champagne as an inner corner highlight and highlight the browbone with a matte cream shadow. Apply liner, mascara, and lashes to complete the look.
This look appears a bit darker and smokier in real life but you can definitely see how the brown is quite prominent in the outer corner of the eye. Depending on the lighting and angle your eyeshadows will transform into different shades :) Hope this tutorial was helpful!
