the TUTORIAL: "RATED R" MAKEUP

Step 1- After applying an eyeshadow base (I used MAC paint in Bare Canvas) Apply a lime green eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye (I used the green in the Nars Rated R eyeshadow duo) Tip: Adding a white eye liner to the inner corner before you put on the green makes the color brighter.

Step 2 - Apply a smokey brown/gray eyeshadow (I used MAC's Club) to the rest of the eye below the crease.

Step 3 - Blend the green and the smokey brown/gray together. I continued to add both colors and blended them together until I got the desired look. Tip: You don't want to lose the intensity of either color which is why you continue to add more of the colors. When you blend 2 shadows together, the colors can get muddled. So blend, add color, blend, add color, etc.

Step 4- Add eyeliner (I used Make Up Forever 01 black eye liner & Clinique's gel eye liner) and mascara to top and bottom lashes.

Step 5 - Add a highlighter to the brow bone (I used MAC's vanilla pigment). You can do this step whenever really).

Step 6 - I added fake eye lashes -optional (favorites are Ardell's Wispies #120) and then apply mascara on them once the glue has dried. I also filled in her eye brows with eye shadow (I used MAC's Omega).

Step 7 - Add a bright blue eye shadow to the bottom eye lash line (I used blue in Nars Rated R eye shadow duo)

    1. Haha :) Well you could always try a toned down version. Maybe line your eyes in the blue?

    1. I have no idea. I wasn't there for that part but I'm pretty sure that's her natural hair texture and it's just pinned back.
