This look uses light green, aqua and peachy-brown to create a fresh and spring-like eye.  Applying a violet eyeshadow very lightly along the lower lashline provides a pretty contrast to the spring greens on the upper eyelid.

I used mainly MAC eyeshadows to create this look but you can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades.

Here’s how to re-create this look:

Base and Lower Lashline: MAC Greenstroke Paint Pot (satin cool green)
Lid: MAC Juxt eyeshadow (pale satin spring green)
Crease:  MAC Aquadisiac eyeshadow (medium lustre aqua-turquoise)
Blend Crease: MAC Soft Brown eyeshadow (matte light peachy-brown)
Highlight: MAC Blanc Type eyeshadow (light matte cream beige)
Lower Lashline: MUG Unicorn eyeshadow (bright satin violet)


1. Apply Greenstroke Paint Pot all over the lid as a base and a little along the lower lashline.  I used a green base to bring out the green tones in Juxt eyeshadow.  However, you could use a skin toned or clear eyeshadow base (e.g. Urban Decay Primer Potion) in place of Greenstroke.

2. Pat Juxt onto the lid, using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).

3. Apply Aquadisiac in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).

4. Take a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and use Soft Brown to blend out the top edges of Aquadisiac. This step helps Aquadisiac blend more seamlessly into the highlight shade which follows.

5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Blanc Type on to the browbone to highlight. Take this down into the inner corner as well to brighten the eye.

6. Take an angled eye liner brush (e.g. MAC 266) and apply Unicorn along the lower lashline.

7. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
