'Tropical Aura' Look

'Tropical Aura' Look

I was feeling a bit tropical with this look so I went ahead and grabbed some blue, green and yellow from my stash. The look features a deeper inner and outer lid with a brighter color in the middle of the lid.

Hope your Thanksgiving was great for those who celebrate. Otherwise hope the weekend was awesome! Happy Monday!

I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) on the browbone and  the crease as my primary base - Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush.

On the inner lid I applied NARS China Blue Eyeshadow (matte navy). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush 
Next I applied MAC Zingy Eyeshadow (matte cyan blue). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush 
Then I applied MAC Sassy Grass Eyeshadow (matte grass green). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush 
For the middle of the lid I applied Sugarpill Buttercupcake Eyeshadow (matte vivid yellow). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush 
Then I applied MAC Zingy Eyeshadow (matte cyan blue). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush  
On the outer lid and crease I applied NARS China Blue Eyeshadow (matte navy). Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush
For highlight I used Magnolia Makeup Double Rice Pigment (matte light yellow ivory). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush
On the lower lashline I used MAC Undercurrent Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner Pencil (shimmery teal).

My brows are filled in with Sleek Brow Kit in Dark. Cozzette Eyebrow/Mini Shader D230 Brush/Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner in PurpleMAC 263 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush
I used L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Sense Demi Pixie Eyelashes for effect. Duo Eyelash Adhesive

For my lips I used Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Silky Lipstick in #109 (creamy neutral pink).

I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion - hands. I used Chanel Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup in 54 Beige Ambré - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Dark - face puff.

I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer - Cozzette P350 Cylinder Concealer Brush - under my eyes set with MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Medium Deep - face puff

I used MAC Bite Of An Apple Blush (matte coral red) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Blush Brush - MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour - Sigma Angled Kabuki Brush and Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzer (shimmery icy pink) for highlight.
