Doing makeup for shows can be very intimidating, especially if you are new to doing make up, but it doesn’t have to be.  I have put together a video of my basic makeup look that is very versatile and can be used with many different colors as well as gives the ability to get creative with your color combinations.  For my basic gradient look I usually use a black shadow, white shadow and 3 different shades of a color.  For the video I technically used 4 different shadows because the 2 medium blues that I had looked better together with the light blue shadow and the dark blue shadow than either of them on their own. I have found by using the white and black eye shadow bases underneath the eyeshadow you can get really vibrant color.

For the look in the video I used the following products:

Primer – Thank Me Later eye shadow primer from Elizabeth Mott

White base – Jumbo eye pencil in Milk #604 from NYX

Black base – Shadow Eyez 12 Hr wear eyeshadow in Black Ink #07 from Milani

Black shadow – Liner in Must Have #6 from Sephora Smoky black #01: 4 Shadows and Liner Palette

Dark blue shadow – Metallic Baked Eyeshadow in Blue My Mind #603 from Milani

Medium blue shadow – Eye Enhancers in Indigo Impact #450 from Cover Girl, with Mineral Pigment in Harajuku from Espionage Cosmetics

Light blue shadow – Long lasting shadow in Swimming pool #37 from Sephora

White shadow – Long lasting shimmer shadow in Under the covers #63 from Sephora

Eyeliner – Stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner in Intense Black from Stila

Kohl liner – Kohl Kajal Black Liner #04 from NYX

Mascara – Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black from Smashbox

BrushesBlack shadow:  domed crease brush (Crown Brush), Dark blue shadow: small shadow brush (Sephora), Medium blue shadow: medium shadow brush (Sonia Kashuk), Light blue shadow: eye blending brush (Sephora), White shadow: medium shadow/blending brush (EcoTools)
