This EOTD (Eye of the Day) breaks down how to create this colorful look. Yellow, orange, and pink are the main colors I used on my lower lid. In terms of color theory, these three colors are analogous (shades, tints, or tones of colors that lie adjacent to each other on the color wheel). Another example of analogous colors are blue, purple, and red. Using analogous colors next to each other in your makeup looks makes blending a lot easier!
Note: As with all my looks, you can use any similar eye shadow colors you have (the Coastal Scents 88 Ultra Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette is great as well). I mostly use MAC products when I do looks for this website, because aside from liking their eye products, it’s easier for me to list down exactly what I used since every MAC color has a specific name.
- Apply a primer on your entire lid. I used MAC Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre”.
- Apply a shimmery pale pink eye shadow as highlight, like MAC E/S in “Naked Lunch”.
- With a dense eye shadow brush, pack on a bright yellow color on your inner corner, tear duct, and inner lower lash line. I used MAC Pro E/S in “Canary Yellow”.
- Use a bright orange eye shadow (like MAC E/S in “Orange”) on your center to outer lower lid, and blend where it meets the yellow color.
- Apply a bright pink color on your outer V, and blend along your entire crease. Instead of an eye shadow, I used MAC Pigment in “Bright Fuchsia” (dry).
- Blend a light orange/coral eye shadow (like MAC E/S in “Paradisco”) along your crease to create a transition between the yellow, orange, and pink colors on your lower lid.
- Apply a plum-brown color on your outer V, and blend it along your entire crease. I used MAC E/S in “Mystery”.
- Line your upper lash line with a black liquid or gel liner. I used MAC Pro Chromaline in “Black Black”.
- Apply a white or light yellow pencil on your lower waterline, like MAC Pro Eye Pencil in “Pale Yellow”.
- Curl your lashes and apply mascara to both your upper and lower lashes.
