1

First, the base!

Apply a turquoise eye shadow cream to the contour of your face, then use a darker eye shadow in the same tones to accentuate the depth. Create a pearlescent shine with a gold eye shadow cream and a blue illuminating powder. 

2

Define your eyes

Apply the gold cream to your eyelids and deepen your gaze with a navy blue shadow. 

For a more detailed finish, draw dots on your eyebrow arches with a green line. 

Define your eyes.

3

Emphasize your gaze

Use a blue-tinted cream to draw a thin line on your upper eyelid, then use a sapphire blue eyeliner to stretch the line outward. 

Add dark turquoise eye shadow under your eyes, and apply the illuminating powder to create a point at the inner corner of the eye.

Finish with a thin eyeliner, from the inner corner of your eye to the outside. Also count on an essential accessory: false eyelashes!

Emphasize your gaze.

4

Highlight your features

Colour your eyebrows by reusing the blue cream.To give lustre to your lips, apply bright and luminous powder on a neutral base.

Highlight your features.

5

Work the details

Trace three gills on each of your cheeks with turquoise-tinted cream, dark turquoise eye shadow and black eyeliner. Complete the effect by fading the lines and decorating your cheekbones with small dots of yellow eyeliner.

On your forehead, draw some scales with the black eyeliner and define them with dark turquoise eye shadow.

Work the complementary details.

All that's missing is the final touch!

Colour your neck with the turquoise-tinted cream and dark turquoise eye shadow. And there you are, bathed in colours of the ocean! 

All that's missing is the final touch!
