Hi, it's TJ. And today we're going to learn how to do bright colors. You can wear any type of bright colors you feel comfortable in. Some of my favorite are turquoise, a great melon or peachy tone and my all time favorite a purple or pinky tone. Your tools today, other than you favorite bright eyeshadow colors, will be my essential brushes. Your eye shading brush. Great brush. Dome shaped. Great for applying color in one place. And the other brush that I love and adore is my eye blending brush or your crease brush. This is great for softening any edges. Let's get started. Alright ladies, since you've chosen your color and you have your brush, we'll get started. You're first going to apply your eye shadow of choice with the flat part of the brush. A lot of girls use the tip of the brush. No, no, no. Use the flat side of the brush to pick up the color. Make sure you shake off any excess and let's apply to the lower part of the lid. Let me show you how to do that. Using your brush, apply color to the flat part of the brush. Make sure you tap off any excess. Using the brush, lightly apply to the lower part of the lid, right along the lash line. I'm going to grab more color and add just a little more in there to give it a little more depth. Make sure you go all the way from the inner corner of the eye, to the outer edge of the eye. You can add as much or as little as you like. If you're very shy and kind of conservative, use just a little. If you're fun and funky and bold like myself, go ahead and add more. But the best thing about eyeshadow is that you are going to, it's buildable. So after applying, you want to soften that edge right there. We all see that heavy edge, you don't want to see that. Using your eye blending brush or your crease brush, go into the crease and lightly with the tip of the brush go back and forth to soften the edge like a windshield wiper. Back and forth like a windshield wiper. Very softly. And there you go. You have your bright color. So there you have it ladies. It was quick, it was easy and you can do this with any color. Blues, turquoise, greens, pinks, oranges. If you have a, you know, a bright green at home you want to try that, do it. Have fun with it. It's a great look. I wouldn't suggest it for work, but have fun with it. Bye!
