Step 1: Apply primer

As this is a strong eyeshadow look, it’s best to apply primer for the product to stay on for as long as possible.

Step 2: Start with a neutral base

Either go for a single neutral colour of mix two – for example white and beige – and apply it all over your eye lid.

Step 3: Next, go for a medium shade

We’re going for a medium metallic green. We’ll spread it across the eye lid up to the crease by pressing it on with a flat brush, making sure it is blended in without any rough edges.

Step 4: Time to go a shade darker

Next, use a small rounded brush to apply a darker green shade. Press it on from down to up, so that you blend the eye shadow vertically on the outer areas of your eyelids. Smooth and soften the edges with a blending brush.

Step 5: Build up the layers

We’ll go back to the outer corners again. Take a darker shade – we’re feeling adventurous with a metallic blue – and we’re pressing it on the outer corners and bringing the colour underneath as well.

Step 6: Go lighter and brighter

It’s time to amplify and highlight the inner eye. Use a clean brush to apply a light shade on your inner eye. If you spot that you need more blending – simply grab a fluffy eye shadow blending brush and blend, blend, blend.

Step 7: Finish with fixing spray

It’s time to add a fun element to our look by applying a clashing colour. Go for blue eyeshadow up until the crease. Gently blend the two shades together with a blending brush.

Step 3: Apply a darker brown tone to the outer corners of your eye

As we are going for a natural look, the tones we’re going to opt for are going to be earthy and subtle. Go for a medium brown, apply it to the outer corners and blend with a fluffy brush. Keep adding a blending if you want the look to be slightly stronger.
