Orange, Pink, Purple and Blue Glitter eye makeup Tutorial

This look was created using eyeshadows from Morgana Cryptoria.

I have had the idea for this look for a long while. I think I was holding off because I wanted to wear it for a fun occasion, but I always forgot when something came up. So it ended up being a boring Wednesday makeup look where no one saw it except me and my hubby. He didn't like it. The turd! ;-)



Click below for the tutorial!
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.

 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 MC - Axe To Grind to the outer 1/2 of crease, with CS's Classic Shadow Angle Synthetic Brush.

 Apply MC - Alchemy to the lid and inner crease, with CS's Classic Synthetic Blender Brush by patting and sweeping outward.

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

Apply MC - Alchemy to the lower lash line, with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush.

Apply MC - Axe To Grind to the outer lower lash line, with CS's Classic Liner Medium Synthetic Brush.

 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.

Mix MC - Lapis Lazuli with Darling Girl Cosmetics Rockstar Serum with a thin liner brush and apply to the upper lash line and wing out.

Mix Medusa's Makeup Glitter - MoonWalk with Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue and apply on top of blue liner with a thin eyeliner brush.

Apply 1-2 coats of black mascara to the 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: Sobe Botanicals - Exposed

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)
Sobe Blush - Orgasmic (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line with CS's Classic Blush Large Angle Synthetic Brush)
Sobe Blush - Fortune (applied above cheek bones to hilight)
  If you have any questions, please let me know!
