Since I’ve been doing a lot of in-your-face bright colour makeup, I thought it’d be fun to do something bright but softer. I don’t know if you guys know this makeup artist, Lisa Elridge (and a great youtube guru), but I love her..no, I adore her! She’s my inspiration and one of the few REAL makeup artists on youtube. She is amazing! Anyhow, She has done something similar to the tutorial below but on a lighter skin tone, and since I also have the same quad as her (the quad has been sitting at the back of my vanity drawer and hiding) I thought why not re-create the look. I guess for those with darker skin tones, you can try a deeper shades of eyeshadows so it doesn’t look chalky or ashy on your skin tone. I actually quite like how this look turns out, not too bright and still wearable.
1. I applied MAC Soft Ochre paint pot all over my lid to prep my eyes with my ring finger.
2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush from Urban Decay, I applied the eyeshadows from the Givenchy Bucolic Blossoms quad: mint green colour on the inner corner of the lid, the pink in the middle and the purple on the outer corner.
3. Using a clean blending brush, I blended the colours towards the crease.
4. I applied the same colour combination on the lower lid using a small angled brush from MAC.
5. To define my eyes a little, I applied the brown from the palette along my upper and lower lash line. I found that the brown isn’t intense enough, and so I applied MAC Brun eyeshadow on top of it.
6. I curled my lashes using Urban Decay eyelash curler and applied Diorshow New Look mascara lightly on upper and lower lashes.
7. I applied MAC Studio fix fluid all over my face using CoverFX foundation brush 160.
8. I applied Benefit Coralista blush on the cheeks and completed the look by applying Tarte Lipsurgence in Enchanted.
