Green, Red, and Yellow Eyeshadow Tutorial!

You can tone it down to make it more wearable, if you'd like!

Have you gotten tired of wearing the same dull brown and grey colors every day? Once in a while it is nice to wear something more colorful, provided you have the guts for it! But why not get creative once in a while, right?

Today I’m going to show you how to do a green, red, and yellow eyeshadow look. You can tone it down as much as you’d like if you aren’t used to wearing vibrant colours. Then again, if you’re going to a party or wearing a costume, why not just wear it as vibrant as it is? :D

So let’s get started!

Here’s what you will need:

  • Green, red and yellow eyeshadow
  • Optional: eyeshadow primer.
  • Optional: a shimmery light colored eyeshadow for highlighting
  • Eyeliner: black and white/silver/nude
  • Mascara and Lash curler!
  • Your brushes

The Eyeshadow Tutorial

To start, I applied my eyeshadow primer all over my eyelid. I use NYX’s High Definition Eyeshadow Base. Then, I took my flat eyeshadow brush and started patting the eyeshadow on my eyelid, going into the crease. I didn’t worry so much about the shape, since I’d be blending it later anyway.

I chose a matte kelly green to apply all over my eyelid.

After that, I applied the red shade on my outer V.

You can choose to blend the red as big as you want. I brought it above my crease.

To deepen the crease and to make the red more visible, I started blending it into the green eyeshadow, stopping about halfway into my eyelid. I also brought it above my crease, blending to get rid of harsh lines.

Blend it as well as you can to get rid of harsh lines!

After this, I applied yellow all over my brow bone, blending it into the colors below. I also applied it on the inner corner of my eye. And then, with an angled eyeshadow brush, I applied green eyeshadow on my lower eyelid. Then, I applied yellow in the inner corner of my lower eyelid, meeting the green.

Apply eyeshadow on the lower eyelid, too!

And then, you just have to line your eyes, curl your lashes, and apply mascara, and you’re done!

Optionally, you can put white, silver or nude eyeliner on your lower waterline. This will open up your eye and make it look bigger. You can also use your light shimmery highlight shade to highlight your browbone and the inner corner of your eye.

You can tone it down to make it more wearable, if you'd like!

And that’s it! You’re all done. You can glam this look up even further with a pair of false eyelashes, but I chose to keep mine the way it is since it’s already pretty vibrant on its own.
