Tutorial - Neutral with Pop of Green and Purple!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial.  This look came to me as I was browsing through some of my bins of neglected makeup.  I like to come back and use items that haven't been touched in a while - it's like discovering a brand new product!  In this case, the product was the MAC Tempting Quad.  I was inspired by the colors in the palette to do a makeup tutorial which is the epitome of neutral with a bright pop of color.

In this tutorial I kept the lid neutral with bronzes and browns.  To mix it up, I not only added a bright color to the lower lashline, but to the tearduct as well.  To help bright colors pop, try using a colored base such as a bright eye pencil underneath the eye shadows. This tutorial is a great way to experiment with fun colors yet keep the look wearable at the same time.

The Final Look!
