Golden Green festive eyes- MY first eye makeup tutorial

Hey everyone,
This is my very first attempt at doing an eye makeup tutorial. I have never before tried it because i was nt sure if I could click good pictures or not. But today I finally tried it for the first time.

I chose to do coppery gold and green because these are the colours which are mostly present in our ethnic clothes. The embroidery is generally in gold and I dont know how but they do always add a hint of green too alongside.

Lets get on with it:- :)

Step 1:- Prime your eyes. I used Mac Paint pot in Painterly. If you dont have an eye primer make sure you use some foundation or concealer on your eyes. This will help the colours show up better and the makeup last longer.

Step 2:- Add some loose powder ( compact ) on your eyes with a brush so that it can help control the oil on the lids and help colours blend easily.

Step 3:- Apply a coppery eye shadow on the entire lid using an eye shadow brush. I am using Coastal Secnts metal mania palette and Faces eye shadow brush.

Step 4:- Apply Mac's woodwinked over the previously applied shadow. This will make the colour show up to be copperish gold.

Step 5:- On a crease brush ( or the same eye shadow brush ) a green colour into the crease. I am again using the colour from the Coastal scents metal mania palette.

Step 6:- Using the same brush apply a dark greenish black eye shadow to the outer corner to intensify the look and make it more smokey.

Step 7:- I am using another bright green colour to make the crease colour to make it more vibrant. then blend all the colours together to eliminate any harsh edges.

Step 8:- Line your eyes. I am using Mac's eyeliner in boot black and make a wing at the outer corner by first drawing a line from the lower lashline and then joining it with the top one.

Step 9:- Apply a matte highlight shade to the brow bone. Since all the colours used are shimmery, use a matte highlight.

Step 10:- Apply mascara and fake eye lashes if you want. I dint use mascara as it would have been a bit hard to remove since I am not going anywhere. I just used fake lashes.

Step 11:- Apply kajal and using and flat brush apply the same vibrant green eye shadow to the lower lashline.

And you are done. I hope you guys liked this. It was my first try so let me know your suggestions so I can improve it in the future. :-)
