My inspiration came from the lovely Meredith of Pigments and Palettes:
To create my interpretation, I used my Coastal Scents 88 Original palette. To start, I apply a shade of pale turquoise halfway across my primed upper eyelid:
Next, I'm going to apply a dark brown shade to the outer corner of my upper eyelid:
Then I'm going to soften the outer crease color with a medium brown shade:
With a soft, white eyeliner pencil, I'm going to line my lower lash line, being sure to line my waterline as well:
Using the same, pale turquoise shade, I'm going to layer over the white liner:
Now I'm going to take my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Pencil in Rehab, and trace outside of my now-turquoise liner:
Then I'm going to layer the medium-brown shadow over the eyeshadow pencil:
To brighten the look and add a little shimmer, I'm going to use my UD Eyeshadow Pencil in Sin and blend along the outer edge of the darker liner:
For added depth, I'm going to apply a little matte black shadow to the outer corners of my top and bottom eyelids:
Now I'm just going to use some black gel/cream eyeliner to sweep a winged line along my upper lash line:
Apply mascara and some false lashes and I'm finished!

Not only does the pale turquoise add a pleasant pop of color, it brightens and widens my small, almond-shaped eyes as well. LOVE! I can see myself doing this often. :D
Hope you all enjoyed and have a great night!
