Bright eye look

I saw the NYX Ultimate shadow palette in Brights and knew I had to have it. My make up is always very tame. I don’t wear a lot of colour and stick entirely to neutrals. BUT, the colours are so vivid, and I was feeling inspired.

This is the final look. It’s a transition from yellow, into green and finally into blue along the lash line. I felt so beautiful wearing this and it is the perfect look for summer!

img_9816.jpgI actually used every colour in the bottom half of the palette.
  1. I started off with the true yellow shade and put it on the outer corner and into the outer part of the crease. I tried not to take it too far in to keep the rest of the eye blank for the other colours.
  2. I then took the orange-yellow collour and went back into the outer crease to deepen the yellow colour. I started to bring this colour onto the main part of the lid and blend the colour out near the centre of the lid.
  3. Taking the light green shade (second from left), I blended this into the yellow shade on the outer lid and started to bring the cover onto the lid.
  4. To add more colour, I started to blend the darker green into the deepest part of the crease and blended the colour out to the outer part of the lid.
  5. On the outer most part of the crease and lid I added the light turquoise (first on the right, second row). It was quite a subtle colour, but added a nice transition between the upper eye and lower eye.
  6. Again, to deepen the outer corner I added the darker turquoise and blended this towards the lower lash line.
  7. I had initially wanted to add blue to the lid as well, but thought a bright blue would overload it so I added it along the lower lash line instead. I applied the darker blue (second from left) first before adding the electric blue to make it really pop. I then blended this out with a dome brush do it didn’t look quite so harsh.
  8. I added a thick liner and mascara to the upper and lower lashes and voila!

Let me know what you think of this look! I’m in LOVE!
