Elegant olive eyes

Here i'm going to be displaying how to create a gorgeous olive and copper eye look. I love this eye makeup because i feel that the colors really compliment each other and are great for making the eyes stand out.

Let's get started...

After you have applied your eye primer, select a matte flesh colored shadow similar to your skin tone and apply it all over the lid and blend up towards the crease. This will even out the eye area and give a smoother transition of light to dark colors. Here I'm using the color "naked" from urban decays naked palette.

Now for this step, take a light champagne color and apply it on the lid, inner corner and brow bone. This step opens up the eyes and also highlights the highest points of the eyes, giving them more dimension. Here I'm using the color "sin" from urban decays ammo palette.

Now take a bronze copper tone eye shadow and a blending brush and work this dolor into the crease of the eye and the outer corner of the eye. The color I used here is from "chopper" from urban decays ammo palette.

Next, take a small, dome shaped brush and an olive green eye shadow and sculpt this color to the outer V of the eye. This color is called "mildew" from urban decays ammo palette.

Now to really spice this look up add some black liner to the top and bottom lash line. Don't forget mascara! After that, the look is complete. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
