Since the eyes are all about color this spring, learn how to create a simple eye look with some of the hottest colors right now!

How To Apply Spring Eye Makeup

Step 1. Prep the eyelid with a primer to ensure more vibrant and longer-lasting color.

What I Used: NYX HD Eyeshadow Base

Step 2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush like MAC #239 Eye Shader, pat a matte pink violet eyeshadow on the eyelid.

What I Used: Yaby Cosmetics Eyeshadow in # es015 Purple Elephant

Step 3. Dab a matte navy blue eyeshadow with a small eyeshadow brush like MAC #228 Mini Shader on the outer corner.

What I Used: Yaby Cosmetics Eyeshadow in # es611 Carbon Paper

Step 4. Using a fluffy brush like MAC #226 Small Tapered Blending Brush, blend the blue shadow onto the crease by sweeping back and forth in a windshield motion.

Step 5. Apply a shimmery bright green eyeshadow on the lower eye using a small eyeshadow brush like MAC #228 Mini Shader.

What I Used: Yaby Cosmetics Eyeshadow in # pp071 Psychedelic Caterpillar

Step 6. Draw a line along the upper lashline with a black liquid or gel eyeliner. Drag the line a few mm past the outer corner and add a small flick.

What I Used: Barry M Liquid Liner in Black

Step 7. Curl your eyelashes and apply mascara on top and bottom lashes. Apply fake lashes as desired.

What I Used: Shiseido Eyelash Curler; Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara in Extreme Black; Makeup For Life Lashes in #Babydoll


Extra Beauty Tips

* To avoid an overkill, always pair bright eyeshadow with a clean face and nude lips.

* Mix and match different textures, i.e. pairing matte eyeshadows with shimmery ones, for a modern approach.

* When working with bright colors, apply the shadow with a clean brush and blend with a separate one. This will help prevent the colors from getting dull.
