'Crazy Easter' eye tutorial! (pic heavy)

Happy Saturday!
So some of the feedback from my giveaway that I got was that severallll of you asked for makeup tutorials.
I asked you guys to vote on which look you wanted me do to,
and the 'Crazy Easter' look won.
So here we go!


Step 1. 
Apply an eyeshadow primer. I don't always use then when I use prestige cosmetics (like Urban Decay) b/c their staying power is already AWESOME, but it's a good safe measure.

Step 2.
With a fat, round brush that came with the palette,
I applied 'metallic' yellow from ULTA's metallic palette. I swipe from the corner outward, usually 2 or 3 'coats' for opacity.

Step 3.
I applied the next shade in my rainbow of colors- UD's 'Graffiti'. I chose to do it with my finger because there's not as much fallout and I also find it easier to manipulate applying it on a small area as opposed to a makeup brush. Weird?

Step 4.
I continue my layers of colors using UD's 'Peace'. Again, I applied with my finer (though a different finger this time). I overlap each layer just SLIGHTLY with the color in front of it, blending a bit as I go- but not too much. I save really blending well until the end, for some reason...

Step 5.
I apply my final color, UD's 'Junkshow' on the outer corner of my eye. No matter what color I use, I almost always apply in this area with my pinky. The rounded top is just the perfect size to apply the color. I have my finger positioned like so, and sweep outward.

Step 6.
(sorry for the crappy pic)
Here I used my UD Crease brush to apply UD's 'Ransom' on my brow bone.


Step 7.
Here I've applied the same colors on my lower lash line with a Shadow brush,
and applied eyeliner along my waterline.

Step 8.
Lastly, I apply my liquid eyeliner along the top of my upper lashes and winged it out slightly.
I also finally applied my mascara. 
I really feel like these last two steps REALLLY help open up my eyes :)

Final Product:

I hope you guys found this helpful and liked it!
Please give me any feedback you think of so I know what I need to continue/improve upon!
Have a great night!

  1. Gorgeous!! I love this look. I think I have most of those colors (except that yellow) but I'll find something to use in its place. You've got such a great face for beauty blogging - beautiful skin, great bones, and nice big eyes that can handle lots of color! So jealous...
