Get The Look:
  • Apply your face primer before you start to apply your eye-shadow primer that way it would have sunken into your skin and your will be ready for you to apply your foundation. 
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • I applied a white base all over my lid.
  • Using an eyeshadow brush I applied a light green shimmer eyeshadow, think grass green. onto the lid and then went over it with a matte light green eyeshadow. Now what is ever left on the brush apply into the lower lash line.
  • Using a crease brush apply a dark blue-green eyeshadow into the crease and blend it out so it's not so harsh, then go over that color with a dark green eyeshadow. 
  • Now blend a green eyeshadow into the crease colors.Blend all the colors together for a seamless transition.
  • Now apply a highlight under the brows and in the inner corner of the eyes.
  • Now begin to line your eyes with a black eyeliner and then add some mascara. .
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck.
  • Next apply a powder to set in your foundation. For this I used the stippling brush.
  • Taking a contour brush and elf bronzing powder begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jaw line. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a blush to the apple of your cheeks. 
  • I applied a pink lipstick and went over it with a light pink lip gloss.
