88 matte palette, w/ step by step!


I am lounging today and having some make up fun.  I went for a brighter look, complete with false lashes.  I used mainly my 88 matte palette for this look.  Thanks so much for looking!

I started by priming my eye w/ Indelible Cream Shadow in Bare Necessity

Then I took my MAC 217 brush and placed the Shrek-y green from this palette to just above my crease and blended up toward brow

I then took a vibrant teal, with the same brush and applied it to my crease leaving a bit of the shrek green exposed.

I then took a smaller crease brush and dipped into some deep blue mixed with some black to darken and placed it in the very outer V.

Next, some cream colored shadow to the brow to highlight and blend using a larger shader brush.

Next, using a small shader brush, I picked up a muted gold and applied to the lid. I also sharpened up the outer V by cleaning up with a make up wipe.

Then, using a pencil brush I lined the lower lashline with a true green

I then took MAC's Gorgeous Gold with the same pencil brush and applied to inner tear duct area/lower lashline

Black liquid liner on upper lashline, kohl liner on waterline, filled in brows.

Touch up colors as needed, add some mascara and falsies and all done!

On my lips Wet and Wild Matte lipstick- 903C with NYX gloss- Natural

  2. OMG I love your step by step! It's so helpful!

  3. Thanks for the step by step. I know I can copy it now. Of course, not looking near as skillful and gorgeous as you. ;)

  4. thats a gorgeous look =)
    super flawless blending

  5. Omygoodness how beautiful is this!!

  6. thanks sooooo very much ladies, I'm glad you all found the step by step helpful ;) I think taking pics step by step once in a while can help one hone one's own technique as well. I see for next time that I would like to take the darker blue lower and more precise to really give the full gradient effect and allow more of the teal to show. I quite like the simple lid with the extravagant crease :) THANKS!!!

  7. Beautiful!! Thanks for the tutorial, I love this look :) x

  8. Wow, great job! Those greens from the 88 matte are so hard to blend, but you've done it perfectly! Very very nice :)

  9. Very Beautiful!! I love your step by step!! Gorgeous Gold is one of my favorites!!

  10. Wow, this is totally beautiful! The gradiant is flawless.

  11. Hi there!
    I recently dyed my hair blond and it looks pretty good, but I have a bit of a problem. My eyebrows.
    They aren't SUPER brownish or anything (I dyed my hair from dirty blond to golden blond) but I'm not sure how to fill them in.
    What do you use to fill in your brows? (They look awesome, but then so does this look(:)

  12. Ig, im pretty sure I used my nyx eyebrow kit in taupe/ash and my maybelline brow pencil in dark blonde. That maybelline pencil is the perfect color for blondes :) thanks!
