Shego from the show Kim Possible
The perfect shade of green to kick spring off with. Light shades are used to emphasize the eyes or lips depending on whether you want to stick to the character’s look. Blend the eyeshadow perfectly and go for winged eyeliner.
A popular look that has been done countless times, but is still quite easy. If you want to keep it low key, apply pink shades on the eyelid and line finely on the bottom lash with blue eyeshadow. Remember that blending is essential!
Poison Ivy is a fun play on green, blue and red! Apply the eyeshadow and don’t be afraid to use a highlighter in the corner of your eyes and under the brows. Use eyeliner on the bottom eyelashes, and blend it for a smudged look.
This look has also been done by Katy Perry in her Dark Horse music video. Use the eyeshadow pallet to apply the darkest blue in the crease of the eye and in the outer corner. Use a lighter shade of blue in the middle of the eyelid and above the crease. Apply a whitish-blue in the inner corner of the eye and under the eyebrow. Apply golden eyeshadow between the light blue and white on the eyelid. Finish off with a liquid liner to complete the look. For an everyday look wear nude colours with golden eyeshadow in the outer corner of the eye.
