"Arabian Nights" EOTD and Tutorial

In my Coastal Scents haul post, I had put up a look that I got really nice comments for and I even got requests for a tutorial! Thanks Rids and Puja! :D So, the awesome thing about this look was I did it completely on the fly and I've been kicking myself for not noting down how I did it! But I think I've figured it out now. ^u^
It might look a bit different from the original though.

Also, I'm too cheap to buy nice brushes, I use like three brushes:
An angled one, a flat one and various sponge blenders... Yeah.. So, you can pick what brush to use at what step, I'll give you a few hints but.. yeah.. -__- Sorry.. Teehee.

This is the look I got at the end:
It does look slightly different doesn't it? :/ I used too much green.

So lets get to the tutorial! Lotsa pics to post! ;)

Step 1:  Using a dark purple/blue eyeshadow, like the eyeliner tutorial, draw out a line right from your lower lash line, following the angle and make sure to end it before the eyebrow, then following the crease draw a curve ending just a bit before the inner corner.

Step 2: Fill in the outer 3rd of the eyelid with the same colour, also bring in the curve of the crease and fill a bit on the upper lash line.

Step 3: Fill in the middle with a lighter blue, not too light, just medium, blend it with the purple.

Step 4: With a slightly lighter blue, fill in the inner corner and blend it outwards, keep all of it within the crease.

Step 5: Sweep a turquoise green across your lash line and blend upwards.

Step 6: Sorry for the bad picture. :( Here, with a copper, gold, brown or even black pencil draw over your upper AND lower lashlines, this will basically give a base for more eyeshadows to show up brightly. :)

Step 7: Now, on top of the pencil work a green on the inner and outer sides and a gold right in the center. Then, blend them into each other but keep the gold prominent! We want that pop of gold. :)

Step 8: Put some gold shadow on the inner corners and blend it into the top and bottom lid.

Step 9: Using the medium blue shadow, draw a line along side the "wing" and blend it only slightly into the wing, it should still look defined but not a hard line.

Step 10: Over the pencil line we made on the lower lashline, sweep on some of the green on the outer and inner corner, like the top lid, and blend the outer one into the blue we made in the previous step. Also, put some gold in the center of the lower lash line and blend with the green.

Step 11: Pat on some of the gold onto the brow bone and blend it downwards in the shape shown below!

Step 12:  Tightline and darken the waterline of the eyes with a black pencil and wear LOTS of mascara and you are DONE!

That was long wasn't it? Phew!

I played around with my camera for a bit with the look, gives you an idea of how the entire face would look. I'm not wearing foundation so my skin looks bleh. I'm sorry, I'll remember to wear it next time.  

I showed this pic to my bf and he says, "You look Arabian or something." LOL! It worked!

I wore the scarf because red hair just doesn't look right with the look!

I used an orange looking bronzer from my Revlon palette for the cheeks and Blushing Brunette on my lips. I love that colour, seriously!

Make-up used:

  • Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette 

I used the ticked shades

  •  NYX eye/eyebrow pencil in Cuivre (copper)
  • Maybelline Colossal Kajal 
  • Maybelline Colossal Volum' mascara
  • Revlon Bronzer (don't know the name)
  • Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick "Blushing Brunette"

Sorry for putting this up so late, so much EDITING! It was a long tutorial and I hope it made sense! But I had a lot of fun doing this look, I hope you guys try it and enjoy it too! If you do, please show me, I'd love to see what you do! :D
