[Requested] Simple, Pretty Summer Colors: Eyeshadow Tutorial with minty Aqua and Khaki
After all the crazy-dramatic looks, here’s a return to something soft, wearable and Summery, as requested by a few readers.
This is a look that’s good for most eye colors, but it would bring out blue-green, green and olive eyes especially. Even if you don’t have those eye colors, this combination of shades looks beautiful on most skin tones and looks great if you’re wearing any pastel outfits.
- An olive/khaki shadow: MAC Sumptuous Olive (the 88 Warm Palette has a very similar shade in it, but you can also use a more olive-green shade like the one in NYX’s Olive Grove, or a regular bronze)
- A shimmery aqua shadow: I used a pigment from Catrice called Take It Mint (from the previous season’s Cucuba collection) that looks sort of like a lighter MAC Aquadisiac. Just look for any shimmery aqua blue shade!
- A chocolate brown metallic shadow like NYX’s Walnut
You will just need a single blending fluff brush and a flat angled brush. (These are staples if you look at a few of my other recent tutorials. I swear these 2 brush shapes will get you through most eye shadow looks if you’re working mainly with powder shadows.
