Beauty Weekend: Tropical Island


Happy Beauty Weekend! This look I am showing you today was inspired by a Tropical Island picture I found on Google images (click here). I wrote on here last week asking everyone, "If there's a look you want me to do, tell me". So my sister (who reads my blog) told me she wanted me to do a Tropical Beach look, so that is what I did. You can find my sister on twitter @StyleByCrystal...I hope you enjoy the look.
*I am not a professional makeup artist nor did i have any schooling.
*I'm using the coastal scents 88 eyeshadow palette

  • Starting out make sure to put down an eyeshadow primer. Then with your eyeshadow brush pick up some of 1 and pat it all over your eyelids. This color will be your base for the rest of the colors (it also doubles as a high light). Remember: nothing has to be perfect at this point, just get the color on the lid.

  • Now you will be working with the nice Blues. This part represents the water in the Tropical Island picture. Start out with 1. and then 2. all over the eye lids (don't put it on the tear doc area). When you get to number 3. focus that color in the outer corner and half of the crease. The next step 4. will be focused in the same place. (I used this color to lighten up some of the blue)
  • Now we will be focusing on the green and yellow family. This step will be representing the Palm Tree in the Tropical Island picture. Start off with 1. and don't be scared that its a bright yellow. You will be focusing all these colors in the crease area. Work your way all the way to 5. and then go to the next step. 
  • So if you made it this far, your eye lids should look somewhat like mine. But you are not done yet. You will need a different brush for this part. I used a gel liner/ eyebrow brush. Pick up 1. and make some eyeliner on the top lid. When the blue finally shows up, pick up 2. and make some eye liner on the bottom lash line.
  • Yayyy! your all done. Add some mascara to your top and bottom lashes and some lip gloss to your lips and your summer Tropical Island look is all done.

I hope you liked this Beauty Weekend: how to. Remember if you have any questions, let me know in the comment section below.
