Blown out eye look with a pop of colour

Hi guys, happy Tuesday!

Today I’m gonna show you how to do this sort of blown out eye look with a pop of colour.



First, I always recommend to start any eye look with a good primer. This will prevent creasing and improve the colour payoff of shadows. I’m using the Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion.


Next, we are going to introduce a warm, light transition shade into the crease with a fluffy brush. Your placement may differ from mine if you have a different eye shape.



Time to add some depth. With a bullet-shaped eyehsadow brush, add a darker brown into the outer corner of the eye, blending it into that transition shade.



To add extra dimension, take a very dark shade on a smudger brush and introduce it into the outer most corner of the eye. Blend it into the dark brown with the bullet shaped brush.



Now, we can soften and blend any edges while highlighting the brow bone with a light cream colour.



Time to add our pop of colour. I opted for green but you can use any colour you like with the same technique! I am going to use a mint green from the Kat Von S Alchemist palette and pack it unto the middle of my eye with my index finger.


I always like to add glitter. I am going to add a light green glitter to the inner corner of the eye, bringing it up unto the mint green a bit for a seamless look.


I am going to do my brows, concealer, wings and lashes now without a how-to. These could all be tutorials for another day. 👍

The next step is to line your waterline with the pop of colour you chose. I am using a lime green cream shadow pencil.


Now, time to introduce that dark brown under the lower lashline with the smudge brush to create balance.


And there you have it! The finished look. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Until next week. 👄
