Hello Dolls,

Today I came up with this look. I'm calling it "Illusion."

Hope you enjoy this tutorial!


  • NYX Jumbo Pencil-Milk
  • Paradise Makeup AQ - 8-color Palette-Brilliant (white, black, yellow)
  • MAC Black Kohl Pencil
  • Sleek Natural Palette (black)
  • BH Cosmetics 120 Eyeshadow Palette
  • Golden Rose Matte White Eyeshadow
  • Impala Eyeliner Black
  • White Eyeliner Pencil
  • Maybelline Volum' Express-The Rocket Mascara


  1. Apply NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk over entire lid as a base.
  2. Apply white from the Paradise Makeup AQ - 8-color Palette on the areas you'd like highlighted.
  3. Take a black eyeliner pencil and outline the edges of the white lines we just drew. This will add dimension to the look. Using the Sleek Natural Palette, I'm using a black eyeshadow to smudge out the outer edges of the design. Apply black from the Paradise AQ Palette again (eyeliner)
  4. Apply red eyeshadow, around the black edges and feather out. I'm using the 120 Color Palette.
  5. Apply yellow to the inner 2/3 of the lid. I'm using the Paradise AQ Palette, again. Apply a matte white shadow to the inner corner of the eyes and beneath the brow bone as a highlight.
  6. Using a liquid black eyeliner, outline the outer edges of the design to make it stand out. I'm using Impala Liquid Eyeliner. I applied a white eyeliner to the inner rim of the eyes to brighten them up. Add mascara. Embellish the look as you'd like, I applied these half pearl beads.
