I started off with cleansed, lightly moisturised skin and applied a small amount of Innoxa Pure Silk Skin Primer to my face and neck, waiting a few minutes before applying my foundation and setting powder. It’s best to wait a minute to two between applying products (moisturiser, primer, foundation, powder, etc) as this gives the product time to settle into the skin and will help reduce slip and increase wear.
On my eyelids: All the colours I used are from the Coastal Scents 88 Colour Original palette. The palette doesn’t have colour names or numbers printed on it, so I can’t give you these. The BH Cosmetics palette is the same as the Coastal Scents one, so if you have either of these palettes, you’ll be able to recreate this look (or just use similar shades from a different brand).
I applied NYX HD Eyelid Primer to the entire eyelid area (from lash line to under the eyebrow) to create the perfect base for my eyeshadows and to help make the eyeshadow colours more vibrant. I waited a minute or two for the eyelid primer to dry before applying a pale, lime green eyeshadow from lashline to brow, to create a base for the other colours.
Next, apply a medium green to the entire lid and blend it well into the crease.
Using a dark green, apply this to the outer corner of the lid and blend into the medium green, stopping just before the middle of the lid. Blend the crease again to prevent any harsh lines where the eye shadow ends.
Add a touch of yellow to the centre of the eyelid, blending the edges slightly.
Using an angled brush, line the upper lid with black gel eyeliner (liquid eyeliner could be used instead of gel). I used Bobbi Brown’s Long-wear Gel Eyeliner in “Black Ink”.
Finally, line the waterline (the area above the lashes on the lower lid) with black pencil eyeliner. If you have small eyes and want to make them appear bigger, use white eyeliner on the waterline instead of black. Rather use the black eyeliner just underneath you bottom lashes, or in between them.
