Seafoam Golden Green Eye Makeup Tutorial

Wow...where the hell have I been? Oh well, you know, busy with life stuff. All good of course!

Here is a look from a few weeks ago. I've either been too busy or not motivated enough to post it. I have two other eye tutorials to post, as well as a nail post to do. I'll get to those eventually.
This look was created using the Cool Shimmer palette from BH Cosmetics

I'm sure some of you have noticed that I have been filling in my eyebrows to match my hair colour. It's fun!

For a while now I've been using Coastal Scents Synthetic Brushes and I LOVE them! So I'll mention which brushes I used through out the tutorial. 
Any part where you see me using the same brush more than once, I always wipe any excess shadow off of the brush before applying a new shadow. I use cloth diapers as my brush cleaner/wiper, rather than being wasteful and using tissue paper.  I always completely clean my brushes between each makeup look that I do (using Cinema Secrets brush cleaner), to keep them clean and to avoid color transfer.
 
 
Chart I made for the Cool Shimmer palette
 
 Start by applying your favourite eye primer. I used Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Eye Primer. Then apply a very sticky base (Sobe's Stick It!, Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girls Cosmetics Glitter Glue all work great).

 Apply #29 to the middle lid, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting.

 Apply #83 to the outer lid, inner lid and crease, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting and sweeping.

 Apply #48 to the outer crease/lid, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting.

Apply SMH - Unzipped (matte black) to the outer crease/lid, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting.

 Apply #29 to the middle lower lash line with CS's Classic Shadow Angle Synthetic Brush.

 Apply #72 to the inner half of the lower lash line with CS's Classic Shadow Angle Synthetic Brush.

 Apply #83 to the inner V with CS's Classic Detail Pointed Synthetic Brush by patting and sweeping outward.

 Using CS's Classic Shadow Large Synthetic brush, apply a skin tone shadow or use a powder foundation to blend and soften any harsh edges.
 
 It's probably hard to tell a difference between this picture and the last one. But there is! Apply TKB's Gold Sparks! on top of the middle lid. It was so sparkly in person. Too bad it's not showing up in the pictures. Boo!

 Apply a black liquid liner to the upper lash line, then wing outward.

 Apply Red Cherry lashes #43 and black mascara to the lower lashes to complete the look.
 
For the rest of what is on my face:
 
Eyebrows: e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow - Burnt Plum (applied with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush)

Lips: Morgana Cryptoria - Amethyst

Face: 
Skin MD Shielding lotion 
Sobe Botanicals Mineral Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with CS's small classic synthetic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist Powder (applied with CS's small classic synthetic buffer brush) 
NYX blush - Taupe (applied just below the cheek bones to contour using CS's Classic Blush Small Angle Synthetic Brush)
NYX Blush - Terra Cotta (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line with CS's Classic Blush Large Angle Synthetic Brush)
