Tutorial: Complementary Colors - Purple & Yellow (hint of green)

PICTURE HEAVY! If you guys have any ideas for me to do picture tutorials without posting so many pictures into one post, please let me know! I'm not sure if you guys would watch the video if I were to put these into a video slideshow. If you would much rather have it that way, let me know! Unless this way is fine with you too. =) Enjoy!

Start off with a base.
I used UDPP and then applied NYX Jumbo e/s pencil in Milk all over my lid.

Apply a yellow eyeshadow (MAC Chrome Yellow) to the inner half of your eyelid.

Tada! =)

Apply a light/bright green eyeshadow (MAC Bitter) to the outer half of your lid.

Blend the colors together and it should look like this.

Apply a purple eyeshadow (MAC Violet Trance) lightly above the crease.

It should look like this.

Take a dark blue/purple eyeshadow (MAC Climate Blue) and with a pencil brush apply it to your outer corner.

With the same color and brush, lightly define your crease.

It should look like this.

Take a pale lilac or light pink eyeshadow (MAC Up At Dawn) and apply it to your brow bone.


Take any shimmery highlight color (MAC Cloudbound) and apply it to the inner part of your eyelid.

Take the same color and apply it as your highlight

It should look like this

I also applied a purple pigment (MAC Viz-A-Violet) to the inner part of my lower lash line and MAC Climate Blue to the outer part. Apply eyeliner and false eyelashes!

The finished look
