Breaking Down Beauty: A Turquoise Gradient Eyeshadow Tutorial

By Sheila Arkee

One of my favorite ways to make eyeshadow really s.tand out is to layer it with creamy products underneath the shadow. Keeping the creamy products below the crease is the best way to keep the shadow from migrating and the powder helps lock it on to your eyes. Here are a few easy steps for creating a gorgeous turquoise gradient eyeshadow look. Enjoy!

Step 1: Apply cream eyeshadow on lid and blend it out with a flat brush (MAC 252). Make sure to keep the shadow below the crease.



Step 2: Apply powder eyeshadow, using patting motions on your eyelids with a small, flat brush (MAC 242).


Step 3: Use a fluffy blending brush to apply a medium green to the crease, making sure to meld the lid color with the crease color.


Step 4: Use a flat brush (MAC 239) to apply a black shadow to the outer corner.


Step 5: Blend the black color with a blending blush (MAC 217).


Step 6: Use a small brush (MAC 213) to apply a shimmery cream shadow to the browbone and inner corner of the eyes.


Step 7: Use a pencil brush (MAC 219) to a apply a silver shadow under the lower lashes.


Step 8: Finish off the look by with a white pencil applied to the lower waterline, a black liquid liner to the upper lash line, as well as mascara and brow cream.
