Photo Tutorial: Hello Spring!! (A Colourful Look)

It’s Spring y’all! Ok, ok so it’s 14 days into Spring…this celebration post is a little overdue then haha.

I did mean to post this on Thursday but yeah that didn’t happen. My boyfriend left for Germany that day so I was preoccupied with spending the day with him as he is gone for a month!! 🙁 haha

Having just obtained a new colourful set of clothes I am now super inspired makeup wise! I am so excited for COLOUR! I haven’t done a lot of colourful looks lately…a couple years back bright colours was the only kind of makeup I wore 🙂 It’s nice to get back into again. 

I wanted to create a tutorial for this look but didn’t want to spend hours filming and editing so I decided to do a photo tutorial for you 😀

I hope you like this look. If you do, please let me know by commenting and sharing 😀

Step 1: Prime, Prime, Prime! I use MAC’s Paint Pot in Painterly…seriously, if you aren’t using this stuff…you should definitely try it out!

Step 2: Place a red eyeshadow on the outer half of your lids and into the crease. I’m using Makeup Geek’s Razzleberry.

Step 3: Using a fluffy dome brush blend out the edges to soften. 

Step 4: Thickly line your lower lash line with a dark green, winging it out at the end to your desired length. I used a dark green from the 88 Coastal Scents Color Palette.

Step 5: Line your waterline with a waterproof gel liner…here I used Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in Black.

Step 6: Let’s create some depth to this green liner. I added Makeup Geek’s Envy over the dark green, I went about 3/4 of the way in. Then I used a Chartreuse green from the Color Palette in the inner corners.

Step 7: Wing it baby! Using Maybelline Eye Studio in Black I lined my upper lash line and winged it out at the end, following the green line. You can do the wing as long or as short as you like 🙂

Final Step: Add mascara and fill in your brows!!

TA DA!! A nice, easy, super colourful spring/summer look. 😀
