Most people think that you can only use `smoky` techniques on neutral coloured shadows, but you can actually create really beautiful eyeshadow looks by smoking together bright colours like this blue green look. It almost reminds me of a peacock!
1) Start off with primed lids. When working with bright colours, you may also choose to use a white base over the primer. This helps the colours show up brighter than they would on bare lids.
2) Use a bright teal blue colour all over the lid. Use an angled brush to also apply the colour on the lower lashline.
3) Choose a yellow green colour as the inner corner highlight. Use a small blending brush to blend this colour into the lids. Pull a little bit of the colour into the lower lashline as well to create a seamless look.
4) Next, choose a indigo purple colour and using a blending brush, apply to the crease. Start off with a little bit of shadow, and add more later if necessary. You want to create a gradient from purple to blue to green to yellow along the lid. Remember, there is no sush thing as to much blending when it comes to these looks!
5) To help further define the crease, choose a darker purple and focus on the outer corner crease of the eye. You may also choose to use a little bit of black shadow mixed with the indigo colour previously used. Do not pull this darker shade too far into the crease.
6 - 7 - 8) Apply black liner across the top of the lid. You may also choose to tightline and line the lower lashline as well. Finish off with a coat of your favourite mascara, and you are done!
What do you guys think of this colourful take on a smoky look?
