Makeup of the day: hot pink lips and green liner

Hey everyone! So I am doing my makeup of the day tutorial differently today because I am doing pictures instead of writing out every step. I think that this will be easier for you to recreate!
1) Put NYX jumbo eye pencil in "milk" on eye lid. Blend in with fingers to provide a base for the shadows.

2) Apply a peachy, shimmery eye shadow to the inner half of the lid. I used the eyelid shade on the left side of the wet n wild "comfort zone" palette.

3) Apply a medium brown color to the outer half of the lid. I used a shimmery one (mine is the crease shade on the left side of the "comfort zone" palette from wet n wild). Use a flat shader brush and focus on building up color rather than blending out. 

 4) Use a fluffy blending brush and buff out the crease and the outer lid. This is where you blend out the color that you applied in step 3!

 5) Take a deep color. I am using a blackened brown with red shimmer (wet n wild "comfort zone" palette definer shade on left side) Take this on a stiff brush and pat it into the outer v shape you want. Try to be careful because you want it to be defined and you don't want to blend it out too much.

6) Apply a thin line of black liquid liner (I used a jordana liquid liner). Then apply a green, shimmery liquid liner over the black liquid liner. This gives an antiqued gold type effect and it is really pretty!

7) To finish the look, I applied 2 coats of mascara. I also put some hot pink lipstick on (wet n wild lipstick in "nouveau pink"). I left my cheeks bare because I didn't want to overpower my face! If you want to do some cheeks you can do a nice rosy blush or some bronzer. 

That was my makeup of the day! Let me know what you think of it in the comments and also let me know if you like this format or my other format for makeup of the day posts better.
