Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Lucky Green eyeshadow on the inner two-thirds of the lid. Lightly blend Bio Green eyeshadiw on the outer third of the id and into the lower crease with the 239. Next, apply Humid eyeshadow in the outer crease with the 226, lightly blending with the outer lid. With the 217, light blend Sour Lemon eyeshadow on the inner tearduct and along the crease. Blend Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow lightly above the crease with the 239. Highlight the brow bone with Orb eyeshadow with the 239. Bring everything together by applying #17L aqua eyes on the lower lash line, and then pat Sour Lemon eyeshadow along the inner two-thirds with the 219; then Humid eyeshadow on the outer third of the lower lash line to darken. Line the lower waterline with Black Black pencil. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Echo blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116, then lightly pat Sun Kissed bronzer on the top of cheekbones.
For lips, apply See Sheer lipstick first, and then layer Satin Peach ultra gloss for a complementing lip.
