Peppermint Mocha Sandwich Eyeshadow Tutorial: Shot of green sandwiched between Browns
(88 Original Palette)
This is a simple matte eyeshadow look that is good for neutral lovers or those who prefer things simple and subtle with a spike of something different. (And now I look at it, it looks like Starbucks colors…)
I used 3 matte shades in the 88 original palette: A medium green, a soft taupe brown, and a dark black-brown. You can replace the green with any other color you want. Just change it up and experiment!
- Mature/lined lids
- Matte shadow lovers
- Brown eyes (Tip: if you have blue eyes, try an orange, copper, or even a pink for the colored stripe; if you have green or hazel eyes, try violet or lavender.)
Step 1: Apply a thin sliver of green in the center of the mobile lid, under the crease. Just to show where the color goes exactly, the above image shows where the crease line is (where the skin of someone with the typical double lid folds), and where the socket is (the hollow arc above your eyeball).
Step 2: Using a clean brush, pick up a nice soft taupe (shade between grey and brown), apply right above the green, blending up just past the socket line.
Step 3: Add definition with a dark, almost black shade of cocoa brown. Use a flat, stiff brush to stroke the dark color along the outer 2/3 of the lash line. This reinforces the lashes and adds a bit more contrast with the brighter shade in between.
Step 5: Just finish with a little mascara!
