Millions of peaches, peaches for me

Hi everyone!

Today you'll get a tutorial!

I wanted to make something new for Makeup Geek's idea gallery, and I ended up using Ben Nye pigments.

Here's how it turned out:







You need:

MAC Painterly paint pot (or other primer)
Ben Nye Golden Apricot
Ben Nye Azalea
Ben Nye Aztec Gold
Ben Nye Iced Gold
Ben Nye Royal Purple
Ben Nye Indian Copper
MAC Blacktrack (or other black liner)

Prime your eye. I used MAC Painterly paint pot:

  Add Ben Nye Golden Apricot to whole lid:

Then add Ben Nye Aztec Gold to inner corner:

Blend Ben Nye Indian Copper to outer corner and crease, so it mixes with Golden Apricot. Then add Ben Nye Iced Gold to highlight:

Then add Ben Nye Azalea to your outer corner: 

Then Ben Nye Royal Purple on crease, blended upwards: 

Blend Royal Purple with Azalea and Golden apricot if needed. Add Azalea to your lower lashline:

Here's how it should look now:

Then add Royal purple to your lower outer corner:

Then the liner to upper lashline and waterline. I wanted my liner to be thick, to give some "darkness" to the look:

Create double wing by expanding the Royal Purple from the corner. Add a hint of Royal Purple on top of your upper liner:

Add mascara and false lashes, and you're done!



That's all this time!

Now I'm gonna go and eat some TORTILLAS! om-nom-nom-nom-nom!
