Summer Grad Party Makeup ft. Pixi Emerald Gold Palette




I've been going to/invited to a ton of parties this spring/summer and this is the look I've been wearing (or will wear) to most of them. This look involves all six shades in the Pixi Mesmerizing Minerals Emerald Gold Eyeshadow Palette. Click through for directions on this soft, summery, mostly neutral look.

I've numbered the shadows, for easy reference. 
Step 1: Prime the eyelids.

Step 2: Apply a beige base or cream shadow to the inner half of the eyelid.

Step 3: Apply a midtoned brown base to the outer half of the lid, blending where it meets the beige shade.
Step 4: Apply Shade 1, a white gold color, to the inner third of the eyelid.

Step 5: Apply Shade 4, a soft tan, to the center third of the lid, blending well with the previous shade.

Step 6: Apply a soft bronze shade, Shade 6, to the outermost third of the lid.

Step 7: Mix Shades 3 and 6 and blend them into the crease.

Step 8: Blend out all edges with Shade 1.
Step 9: Thinly line the top ad bottom lash line with a midtoned brown pencil liner.

Step 10: Smudge a soft mint shade, Shade 2, along the inner half of the lower lash line.

Step 11: Smudge Shade 5, a teal, onto the outer half of the lower lash line.

Step 12: Line the waterline with a nude liner for added brightness.

Step 13: Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes.
Finish the look with a luminous foundation, cream bronzer, warm highlighter, a barely there blush, and a glossy coral lip.
