Now for the final part of your mermaid look, we're gonna work on the eyes. We're going to take a lime green pressed shadow. This is going to go on the lid. Using the same purple pencil that we used before to line her lips, you're gonna work with it to line her eyes as well. So we're gonna go right into the lash line. We're also gonna continue that right above the lid. We're now gonna take a purple shadow, we're gonna be using amethyst by Ben Nye. Get a lot of the pigment onto this angled smudge brush, and then go right over the line you just created. And connect it into that yellow bridge over the nose. On the final step, we're just going to put a little more of the blue shadow. Just to connect the rest of the look. So we're taking a fluffy brush, we're gonna go in with the Ben Nye Cosmic Blue. Everywhere you see a little bit of this flesh tone, you're gonna add the blue to. You just kind of connect everything and smudge it out. All that's completed, you're gonna take a large, fluffy brush. Just gonna smooth everything out.
