NYX Slim Pencils Tutorial

So I figured, if anyone has a boring Sunday, why not spice it up with some crazy eye make up?
And maybe I can inspire you with a tutorial?
This tutorial is made with a base out of eyepencils, just to show you what both Phlox and I occasionally do just as a sake of change!
Well, let's get started then!

First thing first! Do your complexion, and powder well, as I haven't as you can see haha.
And if you want you can apply a thin layer of primer, 
I used a tiny bit of Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue on the brow bone for future applying!

Colour the waterline and paint a line under the bottom lashes. I've used NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Electric Blue. The line should follow the eye, but doesn't have to be too neat...

...because it'll be smudged out!
And end up like this.

Time to colour-prime the lid! This is  NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Currant. And I was rather careless drawing it again.
Simply because I'll blend this one too! I used an angled synthetic brush to make it easier to make a soft wing

Like this!

Time for some action! I've used a pigment from MadMinerals called Furious...
...and applied it to the crease. Furious is a rather blue purple, but with the reddish pink underneath it gets a whole new colour on the lid!

And for the lower lashline I used UR Fine Mutli Use Pigment also from MADMinerals on the pencil  I applied earlier


Then I wanted to add a soft wing with the blue and grabbed a small pencil with some Comet Eye Dust from Medusa on it

I also blurred it in to the other blue pigment
Enough? No! Why not bring up that wing a notch?
There! A soft wing is what we got now!
Highlighter is on next! Of course I had to take my lovely Puzzle Cube in the Legends Collection by Shiro Cosmetics! Long time no see!
Puzzle Cube on the brow bone and around the tear duct to meet up with both UR Fine & Furious!
Then I drew my eyeliner with the Medium Pencil Paddle from Illamasqua. This is of course optional!
But a little darker blue close to the lashes is never wrong!
Do your brow (I filled in my brows with Tri Brow Colour from Make Up Store) and pick out your mascara of choice! This is Skinny Brush Mascara by Eyeko.

Tadaaa! And it is done! Look result down below!

Hope you found this useful!
And of course you can go crazy with different eyepencils just to play up some new colours! I love putting on a shadow and simultaneously get a funky undertone!
Let's get crazy with undertones!
