What I used:
[T-B, L-R: MAC Paint Pot in Moss Scape, MAC in Sumptuous Olive, MAC in Mulch, CG in Sugar Rush (farthest right the cream color), Smashbox in Smashing Beacon (farthest right the white color), UDPP, L'oreal Lash Architect in Black Noir, MF Pensilks in Black Velvet]
What tools I used:
(T-B: CS eyeshadow brush, Laneigh eyeshadow brush, Sonia Kashuk large crease brush, Sonia Kashuk eyeliner brush, Essence of Beauty eyeliner brush)
I prep my eyes with UDPP or else my makeup with crease. I recommend this if your eyelid is oily. If it's not, I don't think you need to do it. You get a small amount on each eye and blend with your finger. DON'T forget to put some on the bottom of your eyes and the inner corner.
With my finger, I apply MAC Paint Pot in Moss Scape to my lids. I make sure it's the brightest towards the lashes and the lightest on the crease. You don't need to color your crease but I noticed when I apply UDPP, it's harder to blend or maybe it's just my lack of experience... lol~ :P For that reason I have some base on my crease making it easier to blend. :)
Using an eyeshadow brush (I used Laneigh), I pat on MAC eyeshadow in Sumptuous Olive on my lid. You don't have to use a brush you can still use a sponge applicator. Just make sure you pat it instead of brushing it side to side. The reason why you pat the eyeshadow is to make the color bolder.
With your crease brush, dip it into MAC eyeshadow in Mulch.
I always start from the outer corner in. I find the eye socket on my outer "V" area.
It should look like that on the outer corner. ;)
Then I blend from the outer corner to inner crease. I usually stop 2/3rds in. If you need to grab more Mulch and blend more color, feel free to do so. ;)
Then I grab more Mulch and color from the outer corner to 1/3rd in the lid. I like the look of transition from olive color to brown. I'm not too keen about having green lid and brown crease. Coloring the brown over the green gives you a transition color or maybe it's just me... hehe~ ;)
It'll look like this. :)
Then I color my eyebrow which isn't shown and with a thicker eyeshadow brush (Coastal Scents), I highlight using CG Sugar Rush. I make sure it's the brightest right underneat the eyebrows. ;)
With the Max Factor eyeliner pencil, I line the top lid. By the way, I'm not too keen on the Max Factor eyeliner pencil but it got a good rating on Makeup Alley (85%)... lol~ :X I used to use the L'oreal HIP cream eyeliner in Black, but it dried out. It got to the point where weting my brush didn't work anymore *sigh*. I wouldn't buy that again... lol~ :X
Then I line the bottom with MAC eyeshadow in Mulch and Smashbox cream eyeliner in Smashing Beacon (the white side). I also use the Smashbox cream eyeliner in the inner corner of my eyes. I usually don't line my waterline since nothing seems to work on me. :/
Then I curl my eyelashes and put mascara on. Here's my final look *wipe sweat*... wheee~ :)
What do you think?
I'm going to end this post with an apple I made. I made this for a lady I know.
