"Playful Peacock" Summer Smokey Pictorial-Tutorial
- Prime your lids and allow a few seconds for the primer to set. Apply a soft shimmery pale pink shadow all over the lid, from the lash line to the brow.
- Use a dome shaped brush to apply a plummy gray shadow to your crease, concentrating the color on the outer corner.
- Deepen the crease and outer v with a dark gunmetal gray shadow on an angled brush. Add the same color to the outer third of the lower lash line.
- Line the entire eye with a peacock green pencil liner and outline the outer two thirds of the crease (or where you want your crease to appear).
- Use a small detailing brush to add a shimmery mint shadow to the inner third of the liner and crease. Blend any harsh edges to make the line soft.
- With the same brush and technique, add a matte bright blue shadow to the outer two thirds of the liner and crease. Continue blending to soften the edges.
- Re-emphasize the outer v with the darkest gunmetal gray shadow and add mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Optional: Add pearly glitter to the lids to give your eyes a dose of ethereal romanticism.
