Smokey, smokey ..with a pop of color!
I'm a person who loves colors, so I couldn't show you a classic black smokey eye ... it had to be a colorful one ;)
The fun thing about this tutorial is, that you can do it with any color you like: blue, purple, golden-brown ... or just with white, grey and black! Just choose 2 different shades of the same color family and black. The possibilities are endless, so have fun recreating it!

2. Apply the lightest color on the inner corner and the first third of your eyelid. Since I chose green as my main color, I used a light green for this step. A shimmery white or silver color would be nice too!
Tip: Use a flat brush and patting motions to apply the eye shadow, to make the color more intense.
4. The last eye shadow step is black! Apply it on the outer corner in a V-shape.
Tip: Apply a layer of translucent powder underneath your eyes, to prevent the fallout from messing up your foundation, and when you are done with the eyes just simply wipe it away ;)
(Or do the eyes first and the foundation later!)
5. Blend, blend, blend! This is the most time consuming part. Take a fluffy blending brush with nothing on it (or just a little bit of that transition color from step 1) and start blending the colors in the crease and a little bit on the lid as well. If you loose some of the intensity of the color, just add some more.
7. If you still have some translucent powder on your cheeks, it's time to wipe it away or do your foundation and concealer before you add color to the lower lash line.
Take a small blending brush or a pointed eye shadow brush and apply the 3 colors just like you did on the lid.
(of course you can skip this step if you are not comfortable with wearing eye shadow under your eyes!)
Add some mascara on the lower lash line and you are done!
