Disclaimer: I am not a make-up guru. I love make up and I watch youtube videos and try to imitate the art of make-up. Most of the time, I don’t get it right. But once in a while, I end up liking the end result.
Disclaimer number 2: Apparently, I’m supposed to say this when I write stuff that mentions brands of anything. So this blog is not sponsored in any way shape or form.
Ok, now that those are out of the way, sometimes, mama needs a girls night out. And sometimes I like to play with make up to set up my mood for said #gno.
So I took some inspiration from a youtuber named JaaackJack for this fun eye look. It looks nothing like what she did (hence the first disclaimer), but I did end up liking the result so here it goes.
Here I am with my “face on” already so it makes it look like i have somewhat clear skin with rosy cheeks like the elves from The Santa Clause (anyone? anyone?) 😉
You’ll then need the following for the eyes: eye primer, pink, green, blue, green-blue, silver, tan, and a light matte eye shadows, eyeliner, mascara, and eye brow liner/filler.
First, prime your eyelids. I use a concealer usually because it does the same thing. It makes the color last and stand out better. So, for this colorful look, you definitely want to use some kind of primer. Put that baby all over your lids up to just below your eye brows.
Then I usually start with the transition shade (tan-ish shade) at my crease. Here, I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette in “Raw Sienna.” Using a fluffy blending brush, I started on the outer eye and went along a little bit above my eye crease, all the way to the inner corner but darker in the other corner.
Then I used “Love Letter,” the pink shade from the same palette to put in the outer corner of my eye. Here, I stayed on the crease line and outer 3rd to outer half of my eyelid. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look right after this step, the blending later will help a ton.
Next I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Palette for the colorful part of the eye. For these, I used a flat eye shadow brush. I started with the color “Mullet” for the inner part of my eye.
Then I used “Amp” to put right next to “Mullet.”
Next, comes “Dive” to put next to “Amp” and it should also connect to “love letter” – the pink that is in the outer corner of the eye.
To make the eyes pop even more, I took “Glamrock” on a smaller brush and used it for the inner corner of my eye.
OK! Still with me? Time to blend. I took a light matte (ish) shadow (“Tempera” from Modern Renaissance Palette) on a flat brush and put it right underneath my eyebrow. Then I took a light fluffy brush, took a little bit of the pink color (again, I used “love letter” from MRP), started on my outer corner, did a few circular strokes on the outer corner and then brought the color inward right above the blues and green to blend the top of the colors together. I only did about 2 strokes inward so that the colors don’t get too muddy and focused on blending the outer corner the most.
Now it’s time to make your eye pop even more. Take the same colors you used on the upper lid and line your bottom lid, then use the pink color to blend right below the blue greens for a more finished look.
To finish off the eye look, I used my favorite eyeliner (currently the Illustrative Eyeliner from Emcosmetics) and lined my upper lid. I did a very thin wing because I wanted to keep the focus on the fun colors. Then I went ahead and tried to fix my brows – I used L’Oreal Brow Stylist Shape & Fill. And lastly, mascara – I used Maybelline’s The Colossal Volum’ Express. So here’s the final eye look in different lights (indoor vs. in the car vs. outdoor).
Tip I watched from youtube: To make this eye look more fierce, start with your eye look before your face makeup. Use tape and line it from the outer corner of your eye to the outer tip of your eye brow to make the outer “V” of your eyeshadow look sharper.
Anyway, this was LOOOONG! Hope it was somewhat helpful!
Thanks for reading and have an awesome rest of the day!
