Looking at the product list perspectively you shall come to the conclusion only SEVEN eyeshadow shades were incorporated in the finished eye makeup look, it might seem excessive due to the long drawn down product layout HOWEVER each color works into another, hear me out! First off, you must have a base prepared prior to any shadow application, this includes a priming base and filled in brows. For both endeavors I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Caramel, brow wise, and Bobbi Brown’s Cream Eyeshadow in Bone priming wise! For as long as you chose a sticky eyeshadow base either leaning pure white or skin toned, is for the amount of time your pigments will shine through to their full potential; try blending your primer under your lower lash line especially since a blown out smokey effect will take place. Anyhow, just as follows from the step-by-step pictorial depicted above, the first hue added to my crease is Column 6, Row 5 from the Morphe Brushes 35 Color Nature Glow Eyeshadow Pallet! Being this is ONLY a transitional shade, I took a fluffy Morphe E22 Pointed Blender and lightly disbursed the rustic brown into the natural creasing of my eye socket with fluent side to side motions. To being adding decent pigment and vibrancy I transitioned into Savage from the Urban Decay Electric Pallet, this shade will yield a firmer fluffier blending brush such as a M433 Morphe Brush! Starting from the outer third of my lid I gently began patting the vibrant neon pink shade into my crease to ensure pigment would not be washed out, from there I moved forth in smudging the hue in, this will take only about a minute’s time to evenly blend the color in. When it comes to colorful shades you simply CANNOT go from one end to another, a gradience is needed! Quickly going into Passionate by Mac I smudged this deep pink into the inner V of my eye with light circular motions flicking upwards, this shade was deepened up for the LAST TIME with Muse from the Lime Crime Venus Pallet. Speaking of Muse, Muse was brushed under my lower lash line with that same M433 Morphe Brush using steady side to side sweeps, if needed switch back to the E22 to “fluff” out the product further! Going in with a Mac 224 tapered blending brush I dusted Aura onto my brow bones with windshield wiper motions, in the process I also slightly blended in the crease hues further. Before adding liner and lashes using my pinky finger I smudged In the Spotlight Foiled Eyeshadow by Makeup Geek into the inner corners of my eyelid, AND using a 239 Mac brush patted Column 5, Row 3+4 WET across my eyelids in two light layers (view photo 3).
