Violet Ocean Eyes Makeup Tutorial

Summer is just around the corner, and I took inspiration from the blue/teal color of the ocean and added some purple and magenta coral to create this violet ocean eyes tutorial.

Step One: Prep and Prime Prime your eyes with your favorite primer.

Step Two: Lids Apply a teal blue color all over your lids.

Step Three: Crease Apply a medium purple color to the crease of your eye and a little above. Then blend it in with the teal color.

Step Four: Blend and Highlight Next, use a magenta color just above the purple and blend it in. Use a shimmery cream color on the brow bone and then blend in with the magenta.

Step Five: Liner Use a blueish black pencil liner to line the water line and a very small portion of your lower lash line. Use a black liquid liner and make a very thin line on the upper lash line.

Step Six: Mascara Add one to two coats of black mascara to finish up the look.

Following these steps will give you pretty violet ocean colored eyes, which looks both calming and eye catching :) Enjoy

Simple Bronze Summer Makeup Tutorial

Want a natural and healthy bronze-like glow for summer? Follow these 5 simple steps...

Step one: Face Use a tinted moisturizer or light coverage foundation. Since it is summertime, you do not need your face totally covered with makeup. If you prefer more of a glowy look, add a tiny drop of liquid bronzer in with your moisturizer or foundation.

Step two: Golden Eyeshadow Prime your eyes with your favorite eyeshadow primer. Then use a medium golden colored eyeshadow for you lids and a darker bronze color for your crease. Place a very light colored shadow with a golden shimmer under your brow bone and take some more of the medium golden color and line the bottom of the eyes from the outer corner to the center.

Step three: Liner and Mascara Depending on how natural or dramatic of a look you want, you could completely skip the eyeliner. If you want liner, but desire a more natural look, just line the top with a dark brown color. If you prefer a more dramatic look, line the top with black and half of the bottom with black and smudge it out. Don't forget to add a coat of mascara to make your eyes pop even more.

Step four: Bronzer Instead of a normal blush, use a bronzer on your cheeks and pull it up to your temples. If you want to look more tan, go over your cheeks a few more times with the bronzer, but be sure to blend it out so it doesn't look fake.

Step five: Natural Lips Use a nude colored lipstick with a golden shimmery gloss. This will bring out the golden shimmer from your eyes, while still being natural.

Products I Used
Foundation: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Makeup in Classic Ivory
Eyeshadow: Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette
Eyeliner: NYC Liquid Liner in Black
Mascara: Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black
Bronzer: Elf Warm Bronzer Quad
Lips: NYX Round Lipstick Circe and Elf mineral gloss in trophy wife

That's it! This is a very simple look to do, but still very pretty. Enjoy and have fun recreating the look :)
