Raise your hand if you’re a proud owner of the Urban Decay Electric palette or a similar bright eyeshadow palette!
OK, now, raise your hand if you don’t use it as much as you wish you did!
HA, I see quite a lot of you have raised your hands both times, just like I have…
But frankly, the UD Electric is too beautiful a palette to just gather dust in my makeup drawer, and I’ve decided I want to change that!
So I’m thinking this is the perfect time to finally try the turquoise and green color combination I fell in love with last fall, when I saw the gorgeous look Pat McGrath had created for Diane Von Furstenberg at NYFW Spring 2016.
And if you, too, want to show your brights some much-deserved love, why don’t you get ready with me today? 😉
After applying primer all over the lids, pack a vibrant green shadow on the mobile lids with a firm brush, and blend it out just above the crease using a tiny bit of the same shadow on a fluffier brush, creating an elongated shape in the outer corners. Then prime your lower lash lines, apply the same green, and blend out the edges really well – we don’t want any harsh lines.
Now, wet a shader brush and use it to line the upper lashes with a turquoise shadow. Then blend the edge between green and turquoise so that the two colors merge together.
