We are going to start by applying our eye shadow base. I'm going to use Maxi’s lay & low but of course you can use any other base that you prefer such as Urban Decay or Two-Face or anything that you like. [Demonstration] Once we have applied the primer or the base, we are going to take a sort of shade stick pencil or you can use just a normal eye pencil. We are going to add a base of color where we’ll put the shadows alter. So as you can see I'm applying this green pencil on the first half of my eye and then I'm going to apply a black pencil on the second half of the eye. [Demonstration] You don’t have to worry if this doesn’t look too good right now because we are going to blend it all later. And as I said this is just a base to apply the shadows. So don’t worry about how it looks like right now. [Demonstration] Then we are going to take a fluffy blending brush. I'm suing this one by Crown brushes made out of hair and we are going to blend the two colors together, blending the harsh lines and creating a more subtle thing and more subtle effect. But once again, don’t worry because we are going to add shadows. [Demonstration] Just blend it until you don’t see any harsh lines— [Demonstration] The next step is going to be adding our color. I'm going to take teal pigment by MAC, a sort of blue-green color. And I'm going to apply it on top of the green eye pencil that I put before. As you can see this is making the teal color very metallic, very vibrant. [Demonstration] We are going to apply it on top of the green part and we’re also going to line the inner corner of the lower lashes. As you can see from the inner corner up to approximately the middle of the eye. [Demonstration] Next we are going to take a black matte eye shadow. I'm using cow brown by MAC. And I'm going to apply it lightly just on top of the black pencil that we've put before. This is just going to help set it and at the same time make it a little bit more vibrant. Now we are going to apply very, very lightly. [Demonstration] Then we are going to take our black pencil again and we are going to line the outer parts of the lower lashes connecting it with the teal color. [Demonstration] You probably have a very harsh line now. So we are going to take a small smudge brush and we are going to blend it a little bit just to soften the line. [Demonstration] As you can see now, we have quite a harsh line, so we need a bit of highlight. I'm going to take lighter green sort of pale green eye shadow and this is by cosmetics. And I'm going to apply it just where the eye shadows meet the skin under the eyebrow. [Demonstration] As you can see I'm blending it. And then we’re going to apply our highlight color. I'm going to pick a sort of beige and a white and I'm going to mix them together to create a white highlight with a hint of beige so it's not so bright, it's not as bright as white but it's not as pale as beige. So I'm going to mix them together. As you can see this instantly brightens up the eye and it makes the look much more complete. [Demonstration] Then we are going to line the inner waterline. I'm using a powder coat. This is by L'Oreal from the HIP line. [Demonstration] But you can also use a pencil. And we are lining it with a teal color. And then we just have to apply our mascara. [Demonstration] If you're going for a bolder more dramatic look, you can of course add fake eyelashes. But I'm just going to add a couple coats of mascara on the top and the bottom lashes. You can curl them beforehand. If you have straight lashes, you can use an eyelash curler to give them a little bit of shape too. [Demonstration] And we have our eyes finished. Now we are going to take a light brown lip liner and we are going to line out lips. I have decided to use this color for the look but of course you can change it and you can use whatever you want. We are going to line the lips making sure we correct any imperfections that we have. You can choose a more rounded shape or you can use a pointed shape, whatever you prefer. This go with each person, it depends on what you like. [Demonstration] We are also going to line the lower lip and we are going to slightly fill the lip with a pencil. This is going to make the lipstick last longer and also have it blend much better. [Demonstration] Then I'm going to take a lipstick. I'm using this one by Olive, it's this reddish brand sort of like Avon. And I'm going to just apply it on top of the lip liner making sure it's blended. [Demonstration] And then we are going to add a little bit of color to our face with the blush. I'm suing this one by H&M and this is number 17 Toni Rose. [Demonstration] You have to choose a blush that you like and you have to choose the amount of blush that you like. Some people like a little blush, some people like a little hint of color. So this depends on your personal style. As you can see we’re applying it to the cheeks and it's really finishing off the look. This is look finished, I hope you like it and I’ll see you soon. Bye-bye.
