Spring 2012 Eye Makeup Look!!!

Inspired by the beautiful bright colors of Spring 2012!!! 

(note:  picture above was taken with an iPhone, so may not best resemble colors.)

Step 1.  Start by applying a primer all over eyelid.  Next, apply a purple eyeshadow on the crease using a blending brush.  Blend any harsh lines.  Next, apply a bright yellow eyeshadow by patting onto lids with a small eyeshadow brush.  Try not to go over the crease lines. 

Step 2.  Apply a black eyeshadow towards the outer crease, creating that "v" look.  Blend a way!

Step 3.  Blend some more purple eyeshadow to the crease.  This will give it a smokey look.  Next, apply a liquid eyeliner.  Start from the outer corner, working your way towards the inner corner.  Make sure line is thick and the "wing" is extended out.

Step 4. & 5.  Apply a white highlighter last.  This will help blend a way any harsh lines as well.  I applied it across the entire brow bone.  Lastly, apply some false lashes and you're all done!!!

Product recap:

  • Primer:  Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden.
  • Eyeshadow:  Napolean Perdis Prismatic Eyeshadow Quad in #6
  • Liquid liner:  NYC Liquid Eyeliner in Black
  • Eyeshadow brushes:  MAC #224 & #239

Tips:  I like to add more color in between steps as needed.  For example, with this look I added more yellow and purple to make the colors pop.  Just remember to blend!

Here's the final look!!!
