Pearlescent Pastels: Spring Eye Makeup Tutorial

Hey dolls,

Today's makeup tutorial is a fun multi-colored spring look without being too heavy on the eyes. I'm working with pastel shades with a pearlescent finish, which make the look more wearable and perfect for Spring!

Here's a closeup of the look:


  • Make Up Atelier Paris Aqua
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Color 35 Tough as Taupe
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hr Color 70 Metallic Pomegranate
  • Flormar Brown 4 Color Palette + Maybelline Gold Eyeshadow
  • NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Baby Pink Pearl + MAC Pigment
  • NYX Gel Liner Smudger
  • BH Cosmetics Malibu Palette ( Blue +green) lower lashline
  • Cascada Of Colours Black Eye Pencil 
  • False Lashes
  • Max Factor Blue Eye Pencil (eyebrows)
  • Rimmel Black Mascara



  1. I’m beginning by applying a blue eye pencil to my eyebrows for a fun tint.
  2. Then apply your eye base. I’m using Makeup Altier Paris and Maybelline’s Color Tattoos as a base.
  3. Using a small precision brush, apply a burgundy shade to the outer edges of the crease. I’m using Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate.
  4. Then, apply a dusty pink pigment, to the outer 2/3 of the eyelid. I’m using NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Baby Pink Pearl.
  5. Now apply a hot pink pigment to the outer 1/3 of the eye, overlapping with the 1st shade to create a gradient effect.
  6. Apply a matte brown eyeshadow to the crease with a small angled brush to create a dramatic cut crease look. Blend the color towards the lashline.
  7. Apply a neutral ivory eyeshadow to the remaining 1/3 of the inner eyelid blending into the baby pink eyeshadow.
  8. Using the same brown eyeshadow, begin drawing a line at the inner part of the crease going upwards towards the brow bone so it almost connects to the other brown line we drew in the crease earlier.
  9. Using a flat shader brush, smudge the hot pink shadow around the brown line to create a shadow.
  10. For a fun pop of color, I’m applying blue and green at the lower lashline. This time I’m using my BH Cosmetics Palette.
  11. Dust a warm golden shadow at the brown bone to blend out the look.
  12. Apply black liner at the upper lashline.
  13. Apply mascara and black liner to the waterline.
  14. Finish with a shimmery pigment on the inner part of the eyelid.
