LOTD & Tutorial - Teal & Purple Makeup

So today I've come up with this colorful teal and purple look & have created my first ever tutorial.


What You'll Need & Products I Used:
 Eyeshadow Primer - Urban Decay Primer Potion
White Eye Base - NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Light Green Eyeshadow - Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Dare
Teal Eyeshadows - Inglot DS 473 & Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Darling
Dark Green (Almost Black) Eyeshadow - Urban Decay Pressed Eyeshadow in Loaded
Ear Bud - Used to shape the eye
Base Eyeshadow & Highlight Eyeshadow - Inglot Pearl 405 & AMC Shine 30
Purple Eyeliner - Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Lust
Bright Purple Shadow/Liner - LUSH Emotional Brilliance in Feeling Secure
Black Pencil Liner & Liquid Liner - Barry M Black Kohl & Illamasqua Precision Ink (Abyss)
Mascara - Clinique Mascara
Eyebrow Pencil/Powder - For those of us with thin brows - Benefit Brow Zings

Tutorial
1. Prime the whole eyelid with eyeshadow primer. Next, apply your white base on the lid and smudge it all over the eye.
2. Apply light green eyeshadow on 1/3 of your lid. Apply over a thick white base for a more vibrant color.
3. Apply your lighter teal eyeshadow (I used Inglot DS 473) on the middle of your lid.
4. Apply the darker teal shade (Sugarpill Darling) to almost the end of the lid & blend teal into light green.
5. Apply dark green eyeshadow (UD Loaded) onto end and create V shape. Blend 1/3 into socket.
6. Use an ear bud to shape the wing of your eyeshadow. If you struggle, dip it into makeup remover.
7. Add some more teal on top of the beginnings of where you applied the dark green. Blend.
8. Apply your neutral/skin color eyeshadow (Inglot Pearl 405) on the rest of the eye as a base & use your highlight shadow (Inglot AMC Shine 30) just below the brow. Refer to this post for swatches.
9. Line your lower lid with purple eyeliner.
10. Either line your lower lid with a bright purple liquid liner or use a bright purple shadow on the lower lid.
11. Add black pencil liner/kohl onto lower waterline. Also apply black liquid liner onto upper lid.
12. Add mascara onto lashes (Or add false lashes for a dramatic effect) & fill in those brows.

& You're done! Phew. Tutorial posts are exhausting.
