For this look, I used orange eyeshadow alongside greens to add a fun ‘pop’ of contrasting colour. Adding a different colour to the inner lid is an easy way to add a little something extra to an eyeshadow look. Here’s how to re-create this look:
Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original (clear)
Crease: MAC Bottlegreen eyeshadow (dark matte bottle green)
Lid: MAC Bio-Green (satin bright green)
Blend out Crease: MAC Soft Brown eyeshadow (matte light peachy-brown)
Inner Lid: MAC Off the Page eyeshadow (medium satin tangerine-orange)
Highlight: MAC Brule eyeshadow (light matte beige)
Middle to Outer Lower Lashline: MAC Bio-Green (as above)
Inner Lashline: MAC Off the Page (as above)
Black mascara (upper and lower lashes)
1. Apply Primer Potion all over the lid. You can either use your fingers or a synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242) to apply your eyeshadow base.
2. Sweep Bottlegreen into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and apply Bio-Green on to the eyelid using a gentle patting motion. Keep the inner lid section free of colour as we will be applying a different shade here in stage 5.
4. Take Soft Brown onto a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and use this to blend out the edges of the crease colour. This step helps to soften the edges of Bottlegreen.
5. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 272 or MAC 239) and pat Off the Page onto the inner lid.
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Brule on to the browbone to highlight and further blend out the edges of the crease colour.
7. Take an angled eyeliner brush (e.g. MAC 266) and apply Bio-Green to the middle-outer part of the lower lashline. Take the same brush and apply Off the Page to the inner part of the lower lashline. The placement of colour along the lower lashline mirrors the placement on the upper lid and helps to shape the eye.
8. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
