Products: Corn shadestick, Bitter eyeshadow, Electric EEL eyeshadow, Chrome Yellow eyeshadow, crystal avalanche eyeshadow, samoas silk eyeshadow, engraved eye-liner, # 36 Lashes and duo glue, ZoomBlack mascara, and auto-de-blu technakohl liner.

Brushes: 242 brush, 217 brush, 224 brush, and 231 brush.

Sarah walks us through the steps she used on her model…

Step 1: taking Corn shadestick apply all over eyelid and a little above eyelid by using a windshield wiping motion with your hand.

Step 2: taking your 242 brush, pick up Bitter eyeshadow and apply to inner corners of eyelids stroking outward towards the middle of the eyelid.

Step 3: taking a clean 242 brush (or use other side of brush) pick up Chrome Yellow eyeshadow and apply to middle of the eyelids. Note: pack on the shadow until desired color is achieved.

Step 4: taking your 224 brush, gently blend the yellow and green slightly together so it doesn’t look like the colors have a line between them.

Step 5: taking your clean 242 brush, pick up Electric Eel eyeshadow and pat onto the outer corners of the eyelids. Again colors may need to be retouched for desired brightness.

Step 6: taking your 231 brush, dust Crystal Avalanche under your eyebrow for a brow highlight.

Step 7: taking your 217 brush, gently blend Samoas Silk into the crease, blending the 2 colors into the middle of the crease.

Step 8: mascara your lashes really good. apply duo glue to the # 36 lashes and apply them.

Step 9: apply Graphblack liner to the bottom waterline (inner membrane) of the eyelids.

Step 10: apply Auto-de-blu liner underneath bottom lash line and blend out with fingers.

    I applaud the artistic creativity. The colours are very striking together. However, I have to be honest and say that zoomed out version scares me. I could see myself wearing this if the yellow covered the inner third of the eye, and more green in the middle. I wouldn’t carry the colours so high into the crease. My preferences aside, this would look funky at a techno dance club.

      Hi Tekoa, ha I know it isn’t something to wear out! LoL I just wanted to experiment with vibrant colors. It is more of a look for Halloween or like you said a certain theme like “techno” or something. However, I must say blending these 3 colors together was a challenge because they are so highly pigmented. Ha my little sister was the model and she was being silly in that middle picture! Thanks

    scary! i wore the same colours whilst working for charles of the ritz in debenhams essex uk way back in the 80’s ( my age is showing really bad now!)

    Freaky looking make-up!! I LOVE it :) man oh man are those some vivid colors. You did an amazing job with the blending. LOL your sister looks like a goof being silly.

    too bold for me but this blending is a really good job !!! i wanna try to use yellow in make up but not that crazy shade lol and i agree thats its perfect make up for techno party

    These are 3 of my favorite colors(and shadows!) to use together, so naturally I love this look. The only thing I’d suggest is maybe flipping the bitter and the chrome yellow, so the bitter blends the yellow and blue together a bit better and it’s a smoother transition. From my screen it looks like the bitter is on the inner corners, but I may be wrong haha. Either way, I love bright looks! :)


  7. You are the NEW Queen of Blending! All Hail Queen Sarah! :)

    Hey Christine (Or Sarah)! You think I can emulate this look with the MAC Neo pigments? If so, what colors would you recommend? I wanna order some swatches.
