Blue & Yellow Macaw Inspired Bright Eyemakeup Tutorial

By Lee (Entry 7)

Hello Beauties,
I finally received my 120 eyeshadow palette from Buyincoins. :woot: :woot: This is going to be my first look with the palette & I wanted to do a bright colorful look so I took my inspiration from the Blue & Yellow(or is it blue & gold) Macaw. They somehow fascinated me more than the Scarlet Macaws. Also they showcase all the colours I wanted to try-yellow, green., teal & blue.
First,I need to apologize as some of the pics arent upto to the standard. I had been trying out a few ‘rough looks’before I did this & all that removing of waterproof eye makeup made my eyes really tired & watery . I almost ruined the look in the end so Im really sorry about that& I hope you can ignore my mistakes, the tired eyes & the unkempt eyebrows(I hate growing them x( )
Also the mattes in the 120 palette do fall out quite a bit so ignore my exotic colored lashes 😀
So lets start with the tutorial…

Step 1: Prep and prime your eyes.

Step 2: Apply a yellow eyeshadow to 1/3rd of your eyelid.
Step 3: Next, pat a bright parrot green eyeshadow next to the yellow eyeshadow. You don’t need to blend them yet as we’ll be doing that in the end.
Step 4: Take a teal color eyeshadow & apply it to the outer 1/3rd of your eyelid.
Step 5: Next, apply a royal blue eyeshadow in your crease & blend it lightly in the v shape. I don’t like blending it towards the brow bone,however that is entirely upto your choice. Also,lightly blend the other 3 eyeshadows together ie- yellow, green & teal.

Step 6: Apply a highlighter one shade lighter than your skin tone to your brow bone.
Step 7: Apply a navy blue colored pencil or E/S on the  2/3rd of your outer lower lash line(leaving 1/3rd of the inner corner) as well as waterline. As I had removed my earlier eye makeup with baby oil I wasn’t able to apply the pencil on my lower outer corner. Sorry!
Step 8: Take a teal or a peacock blue shade pencil & apply it on the inner corner of your lower lash line.
Step 9: Apply a thick winged liner, tightline your eyes(if you didnt apply the colored pencils on your waterline) & apply atleast 2 coats of mascara.
Now this is where I kinda ruined the look. My highlighter wasn’t showing up in the pics so I touched it up without cleaning the brush of the teal E/S residue.I had been on my feet for 3 hrs straight,no it doesn’t take THAT long to create this look but I take almost 300-400 pics for a single tutorial so it all adds up & I was too tired to remove it & apply it again..Sorry!!!


I know the look is a bit bright or maybe a little “too Lady Gaga” but I assure you this will look fantastic for a nightout & Im definitely pairing this with my basic LBD to uplift the whole look. Now only if I can find a pair of neon yellow colored pumps to go with it.Scary huh? 😀
I have given this tutorial my heart,sweat & tears(literally :P) & I really hope you all like it 🙂
