Island Mirage Eyes!

Hey everyone! Many people have asked for a spring-inspired eye makeup look, and I've come up with something I hope you'll love! It involves tones of bronze, orange, and pink! :) Hope you like my Island Mirage eye tutorial! :)


Special tips for achieving this look:
  • Use larger crease brushes to get a soft & seamless blend with these warm tones
  • Using a dark liner on the waterline keeps the whites of the eyes looking white, which sometimes warm colors like orange & pink can detract from.
  • To soften your liner, create a somewhat wide line with powder first, then top with liquid very close to the lash line. For more on this technique, visit Alba's channel- she has some great ideas.
  • Keep lips nude or neutral so they don't clash with the eyes :)
