Hey guys! I did this look for the first time a few weeks ago and decided it was time to get around to making a tutorial for this fresh, summery eyeshadow look! This tutorial is featuring Poppy, one of my all time favorite Makeup Geek shadows. Poppy is an awesome color in general but it’s especially striking on my fellow blue-eyed babes! 😉
Fresh Summer Eyeshadow Tutorial
I always start my eyeshadow routine by first using an oil blotting sheet on and around my lids to remove any excess oil that will mess up my eyeshadow over time, applying my favorite primer, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and then I dust a small amount of translucent powder over the primer.
Oh, and please try to excuse the pink in my lashes. The new Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme colors are no joke! I’ll be making a post on a couple of the new ABH Summer Collection items soon.
To start with the eyeshadow, I’m going to grab my big, fluffy Sigma E40 blending brush and apply Makeup Geek’s Peach Smoothie (matte peach) in and above my crease area but not all the way to my brow.
Next up I’m going to grab my Makeup Addiction Cosmetics Crease Blender brush and one of my all time favorite Makeup Geek shadows, Poppy (matte orange with pink undertones), and I’m just going to blend Poppy into my crease area without coming quite as high as I did with Peach Smoothie.
After that I’m just going to pick up some Makeup Geek Vanilla Bean (beige with light shimmer) on a Sonia Kashuk shader brush and apply that all over my lid.
I want to add a little more definition to this look while still keeping it nice and fresh so I’m going to take a pencil brush and add a little of Makeup Geek’s Frappe (maple matte brown) to the outer V area of my lid and slightly into my crease and then just blend it out.
Two steps here!
First I’m taking my Makeup Addiction Highlighter brush and applying Makeup Geek’s Rapunzel (metallic champagne) under my brow bone for a little glow.
After that we’re moving on to the lower lash line! I’m dipping my pencil brush into both Peach Smoothie and Poppy and then blending it out all along my lower lash line.
Continuing on with Frappe, I’m just using that pencil brush again to add a little to the outer portion of my lower lash line, connecting it with the Frappe that’s already on my lid area.
Time to add a little glow! For this part, I’m going to spray a tapered brush with setting spray (water will work too!), dip it into Makeup Geek’s In The Spotlight and just pack that right into the inner corner of my eye.
And this is the final look!!
To finish it all up I paired this look with Creme 83 lashes, tightlining with MAC’s Fluidline in Black Track and Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new Waterproof Creme Color in Coral Reef. If orange waterlines aren’t your thing, opt for nude or white for a bright-eyed look!
I hope you guys enjoyed this summery look! I’ve got lots of stuff planned for the future, including reviews on lots of products (like this Coral Reef liner) from the new Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Summer Collection, so keep your eyes peeled! <3
