blueberry frosting!

Got a new look for you today, it's called Blueberry Frosting! Its a beautiful frosty light blue on the lid and a darker teal blue in the crease, and a white with green duo chrome as a highlight. I used the Physician's Formula palette for the "green eyes" for this tutorial today. So here's all the complete pics and what I did and used:

I started off with Elf's eyelid primer potion (I save my Urban Decay for when I'm going out).  I then used my my Elf concealer brush from the studio line to pack the lightest blue color (4th one down) onto the lid. I then took a crease brush and applied the darker teal color (under the light blue, 5th color down) into the crease. I had to keep adding more to the color to get the desired color payoff and just continued to blend. I made sure the lid color and the crease color blended nicely together . I then added the white (with green duo chrome) from the top of the palette as my highlight color on my brow bone. I then took a dark brown eyeshadow color from my NYX (champagne and Caviar) palette, and filled in my brows. Next, I applied black eyeliner to my waterline and 1 coat of black mascara to my upper lashes only (anything on the lower lashes smudges almost immediately). To finish off the eyes, I took the lightest color from the Physicians formula (top color) and applied it to the inner corner/tear duct area of my eyes.

I then applied my foundation using my fingers, making sure to get nice even coverage. Finally I took my blush/bronzer duo and contoured my cheeks and applied blush to the apples and swept it up to my temples. My last step was to apply my lipstick.
