Eyeshadow Tutorial: Aromaleighs eyeshadow in Prim Tweed, Lychee & Umber

This is my first tutorial.

I have to apologize for the imbalance of light. I have this HORRIBLE digital camera. Granted it was bought well over 12 years ago. But at a whooping 2.1MP 4x digital zoom not to include the amount of money I have spent in batteries alone I could have bought a better camera. Trust me this year I will be getting that with my Christmas money.

Anyways. This is my first tutorial. I'm using Urban Decay Primer Potion. Boot's 360 mascara. Aromaleigh colors in Prim Tweed(Eye Plush), Lychee(Opulent Luster) & Umber (Pure Eyes Matte). Cover Girl's precision liner and a bunch of brushes.

Aromaleigh Eye Shadows:
Prim Tweed(Eye Plush)
Lychee(Opulent Luster) & Umber (Pure Eyes Matte)

All Tools needed for this demo:
Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Boot's 360 mascara.
Aromaleigh colors in Prim Tweed(Eye Plush)
Lychee(Opulent Luster)
& Umber (Pure Eyes Matte)
Cover Girl's precision liner
Angled Smudge Brush
Flat Brush,
Double Ended Smokey Eyes Brush

After apply primer. Place Prim Tweed from lash to brow.
A little goes a long way.

Just pat the color on using your flat brush.

Next add Lychee to the outer half of lid. You can use the same brush. Pat color on outer half of lid. At this time you want to grab your angled side of your doubled end smokey brush and blend using a left to right motion. Do not go above the crease just stick to the lid.

Add Umber to the outer corner using the cone side of doubled end smokey brush just dip the end into the shadow and apply then blend, blend, blend! Use small circle motion. It's OK if you get into the crease here. Just don't over do it or you will end up with a hallow eye. (think every evil Queen from every Disney movie.)

Next add a thin but pronounced line of black kohl eye liner.

Then smudge using your angled smudge brush.

Don't forget your mascara! Two coats!
