Eye Makeup Tutorial – Glitter, Gold and Greens

Hello Everyone,

How are you doing? I have started feeling better.. Thanks to your wonderful and motivating comments <3. I have quite a lot of Makeup tutorials and look ready with me but the effort it goes into selecting the images, making a collage and preparing the post keep me on the back foot and I prefer to post them as a last resort :).. I havent been clicking pictures for many weekend and nor did wrote any review.. so here goes this Eye Makeup tutorial for all of you.

Eye Makeup Tutorial - Glitter Gold and Greens

It is not a simple or easy peasy tutorial.. so brace yourself for this length Eye Makeup Tut.  I bought quite a bunch of MAC pigments out of excitement but was super-lazy to put them to use, I am not joking 😛 . Those tiny little tubs were lying in a corner for almost an year untouched, unused.. but the wait is over now and here is the first look using MAC loose Eye shadow Pigments.

I must say that it wasn’t an easy job and I had a tough time to pack it on the lids..dont get me started me on the fallout and the precision with which I had to pick and pat on lids.

Steps to achieve this look:

Start with apply a concealer to hide dark circles and under eye pigmentation and get a smooth base for the look to be started. I also did my eye brows beforehand and hence they are not a part of this tutorial.

  1. Pick a matte taupe brown shade and blend it in the socket area between the lids and the brow bone using a fluffy blending brush. This will create a depth in the crease area.
  2. Using matte black eye shadow with a  pointed pencil brush define the Outer-V corner. Apply just a bit of eye shadow and blend it lightly inwards making sure it doesn’t cover more than 1/3rd of your outer eye space.
  3. We are going to start with pigments, so prepare you lids with something that loose eye shadow can stick to, I have used NYX HD Eye Primer here, applied it generously over the rest of the eye area. You can easily go for some eye shadow glue or something that can make them hold better.
  4. With a flat shading brush , pick up the “MAC Copper Sparkle Eye Shadow pigment” and pat it gently on the center lid area. Pack the color till you achieve desired intensity
  5. Using angled brush apply  a bright lemon yellow eye shadow on the inner eye corner. Top the extreme corner with a shimmery silverish eye shadow for a sparkling effect,
  6. Pick a light brown matte eye shadow and using a blending brushblend the crease area. Keep the blending movements soft and precisely to the crease.
  7. Time to cover the lower lash line, for this step you can either use a dark metallic Green eye liner or apply a dark shimmery green eye shadow in patting motion with slanted liner brush and deposit the color till you achieve the desired pigmentation
  8. Apply a peachy highlighter to brow bone
  9. Apply false lashed and line the upper lash line with any of your black liner, Curl your lashes and coat them with your favorite Mascara.

Here is a close up look at the steps.. 🙂
