Madd Style Cosmetics: Playing in Brights Tutorial

So, originally I had a completely different tutorial planned.. I could not get the colors to photograph correctly to save my life! In my complete frustration I decided to use some super bright colors that I knew would photograph well. Maybe I should become frustrated with my tutorials more often, huh? ha ha
I really love how this turned out and I hope that you will, too! :)

Birf'day Suit, Sneetch, Pew Pew Pow!, and Who R U?

As always, start out by applying your preferred eye shadow primer and base

Pat 'Pew Pew Pow!' on the center of the lid and into the hollow/crease. Make sure not to bring your color too close to the inner corner/duct area.

Apply 'Who R U?' to the outer corner area of the lid and then gently sweep this color to overlap 'Pew Pew Pow!' where the two meet on the lid and in the crease.

Continue to lightly blend 'Who R U?' and 'Pew Pew Pow!'
Using a fluffy crease brush, you may want to grab a color close in skin tone to soften up the edges a bit.

Using a small brush (such as the Real Techniques 'accent brush') you want to very lightly apply 'Sneetch' to the inner corner/duct area. I also went back in with 'Who R U?' on my accent brush and brought it further over toward the inner corner above 'Sneetch'

And last but not least - you'll want to apply your eyeliner and mascara to complete the look!
A small accent brush is also prefect for applying gel eyeliner to the waterline ;)

Thank you all for viewing! xoxo
