Madd Tutorial 57

Oh boy! Do I have a color combo for you this afternoon!!!
It involves three mattes from the Doctor Who inspired mattes collection <3

Ok. To start off you're going to do normal eye prep, but with a tiny exception. 
If you're going to use Awesome Sauce - like I always do, be sure to use a VERY minimal amount and that it is very very very well blended/absorbed into the base before starting color application.
The reason for this is that I've noticed if the application on Awesome Sauce is uneven or too much in any way you can end up with weird saturation patches...which we clearly do not want. 

With mattes it's all about building the color. So it will take a few pats/dips of the brush to get the correct saturation of color. Also, I find it easier if I "pat" the layer on, rather than using a "sweeping" motion.

 Color 1

Start off by dipping your brush in Strax Attack! Then pat on the inner & middle lid, stopping short of the crease. Also, along the inner lower lash line. 
(even though I added it to the bottom lash line after the fact, you can do it will applying it now)

Color 2

Again with the "patting" motion - pat Stormageddon onto the outer lid & outer lower lash line, then take it up into the crease, stopping about mid lid. 
Now take a fluffy brush and smooth out the edge.

Color 3
Secondary Purple

Now for the "sweeping" motion. After getting some Secondary Purple into the brush you're going to sweep it onto the middle & inner crease - going all the way to the duct area with it.
Blend Secodary Purple into Stormageddon. Then add some more Stormageddon.
DO NOT blend Strax Attack! into the crease color just yet.

Color 4
Weeping Angel

Noooooow, you get to fill the color gap in the crease with the lovely Weeping Angel.
With the sweeping motion blend the crease colors together. You will more than likely need to add some more Strax Attack! when you're done blending - I know I did!
Grab that fluffy brush again, and blend out the edges so that they're not super crisp, unless you would like them that way.

Add liner & mascara!
