Royal Gramma Inspired Look
Hello Everyone! My first post is going to be about makeup inspired by a beautiful tropical fish, called the royal gramma! Its that one fish that was in Nemo's tank.
1. First you need to prep your eyes using a base to ensure that your shadow stays on longer and that it goes on brighter. The base that I always use is a paint pot from MAC called Painterly, but you can use any kind of base.
2. The first color that you're going to use is a bright matte yellow from the 120 palette, but you can use whatever bright yellow you have.
I've used this color quite a bit because its sooo pretty!! Take that color and pat it onto the center of your eyelid, blend with the yellow and blend a little outwards towards the outer third of your eye. Don't let the color go into your crease too much because we want to keep a longer shape.
This color is definitely one of my favorites, and If I'm ever using a purple for other looks, this is probably the one. Take this purple, blend it with the pink, and saturate the color more towards the edge and brush it against the tape to make a sharp line. Again, don't go into the crease with this color because we want the look to have a more flowy fish-like feel.
5. Blend all of the colors together with a fluffy brush to get rid of any harsh lines and to make the color changes more smooth.
6. Use any highlight you want for this look, and apply it directly on the brow bone. Here, I'm using a shimmering white.
aaaaaand you're done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Have fun recreating this look and don't be afraid to be bright!
