Hey my loves!
How has your week been? My week's been alright but I can't stop thinking about how fast time is flying! October's almost over. Anyways, today's tutorial is a fun one! I created this easy cartoon liner using just damp eyeshadow! I know, crazy right?! You can wear this look for Halloween if you don't really want to do costumes but still want to do 'something' or you can just rock this look whenever haha. So let's get started! Ooh wait! I have one more thing to add! If you scroll all the way down on this post, you'll get to the comment section! You can leave me any tutorial requests or feedback there!:) Okay now let's get started!

Easy Cartoon Liner and Smokey Eyes Tutorial for Halloween

Here's what you'll need..
  • Matte pink eyeshadow
  • Matte purple eyeshadow
  • Shimmery pink eyeshadow
  • Shimmery purple eyeshadow
  • Shimmery champagne shadow
  • Matte brown eyeshadow
  • Matte blue eyeshadow/blue eyeliner
  • Black liquid liner
  • Mascara
  • Falsies(optional)
Step 1
After priming your eyelids with eyeshadow primer or foundation/concealer, blend the matte pink shadow into your crease and a little above it.

Step 2 
Next, pat the same pink eyeshadow into the inner half of your mobile eyelids and pat the matte purple shadow into the outer half of your eyelids. Then, blend the edges out. This step doesn't have to be super neat, it is just to add a base colour for the shimmer shadows we're going to apply next.

Step 3 
Pat and apply the pink shimmer eyeshadow into the inner half of your eyelids and blend the edges out, into the crease colour.

Step 4
Blend the purple shimmer shadow into the outer half of your eyelids and blend it slightly into the crease and into the pink shimmer we previously applied.

Step 5
Now! For the fun step! If you have blue liquid or gel liner, you can use that but I was just playing around with some morphe shadows one day and discovered that they work great as eyeliner when used damp. So saturate a damp angled brush in blue eyeshadow and wipe the excess shadow on the back of your hand. Then draw on your normal winged liner. You can dampen the brush and pick up more colour and go over this line a few times until you have the desired opacity.

Step 6
Then, using your normal black liquid liner, rest your arm on a table or your hand on your face, so you can get a smooth line, outline the blue wing we just created. If you don't plan on using falsies, you can skip lining your lashline and just outline the wing.

Step 7
Blend the warm brown shadow all along your lower lashline to balance out the look. You can even use the matte pink or any color really for this step. But I used warm brown because I just wanted a little shadow and didn't want to take the focus away from all our lid work!

Step 8
Curl your eyelashes and apply mascara! Also using a small brush or your finger, pop in a tiny bit of some shimmery champagne shadow into the inner corners of your eyes and blend it out.

I liked how this looked with just mascara but I just really wanted to see how it would look with some falsies on! And I loved it!
