A blend of aqua and green washes over the lids like cool ocean waves. For a hazy seaside look that’s punctuated by a hint of buried treasure, a dot of gold pigment at the inner eye completes the look. Pair with peachy lips and wet-look hair if you really want to heed the Siren’s call.

Start with a flawless base and always brush up brows. For softer fuller brows, fill them in using an eye shadow matched closest to the brow colour and apply using upward motions with an angle brush. Set with brow gel.
Press an aqua eye shadow along the mobile lid and blend softer above the crease and softly to the inner brow. Wing out the shadow on the outer edge to elongate the eyes.
Add a darker green eye shadow on the outer corner and half way along the socket line to add depth to the eyes.
Line the lash line with black kohl pencil using an angle brush for a smokier eyeline.
Place black kohl liner inside the waterline and working into the lower lash line.
Smudge out black liner with aqua eye shadow along the lower lash line to create a smoky effect.
Add a hint of gold pigment in the inner corner of eyes for a great contrast.
Soften the lower edges using a wider tapered brush.
Curl the lashes and apply at least 2-3 coats of mascara making sure to separate lashes between coats to avoid clumping.
Using a powder blush, start at apples of the cheek and lightly blend up along the higher planes of the cheek, blending softer to the hairline.
Lightly dab peach lipstick on lips for a subtle hint of colour.
Finish with a liquid line on the upper lash line to complete the look.
While perfect for spring as a look that works day or night, this subtle beauty look can also work brilliantly with an icy fall / winter colour palette.
