 [picture heavy post!]
So this is my first picture tutorial.. it took a while and is a lot more longer to do than my normal posts but I had the time so I thought why not!
I tweeted for colour combination suggestions for my next makeup look and Sarah of Glittery Allsort suggested a turquoise silver look. I decided to make use of my new Kiko purchase and do a white-turquoise look using the 169 white glittery eyeshadow and the LE Sleek Caribbean palette again (it's becoming a favourite!)
I hope you like this colour combo, I'm starting to like doing contrasting cut creases of late, so hope you don't mind a break from the neutrals! 

Products used:
> UDPP & NYX JEP in Milk
> Kiko single e/s in 169
> La Femme pressed eyeshadow (refill in Z palette) White
> Sleek Caribbean palette - Apres Midori, Blue Lagoon, Purple Haze, Singapore Sling & Espresso Martini
> UD 24/7 eye pencil in Zero
> UD Ink for Eyes in Zero
> UD Heavy Metal glitter liner - Catfight
> UD Cannonball and Curling Mascara
> Khuraira ACC in light & MAC studio concealer in NC35
> UD Brow box in Brown Sugar
> Kiko Warm Tangerine Glow blush palette
> Kiko Super Gloss in 129

Start by applying UDPP to the eyelid:
Spread the primer all over the eyelid til its clear (or thereabouts!):
Then add NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk on the eyelids too, (making sure to blend everywhere too):
Using a flat shadow brush, pat on white/silver eyeshadow on the eyelid. In this case I used the Kiko 169 single eyeshadow:
Add a white shadow to the brow bone too; you can use the excess of the eyeshadow you used for the eyelid:
Add Blue Lagoon from Sleek's Caribbean palette to the middle of the eyelid:
Add Apres Midori to the blue to make a turquoise-ey colour (or you can just use a turquoise colour straight on the middle eyelid!):
Using a small defining brush, dip it in the black eyeshadow (Espresso Martini) and draw in the crease line:
Using a fluffy blending or crease brush, add more Espresso Martini above the crease and upwards, using windscreen wiper motions:
Add a matte white eyeshadow to the brow bone, also using a blending brush. I used the La Femme white eyeshadow I have in my Z Palette:
You can alternate adding more black and white until you're happy with the blending. Use a cotton wool bud lightly dipped in makeup remover to clean the edges, taking it in an diagonal upwards direction towards the end of the brow:
So it looks like this:
You can use a blending brush to blend any sharp edges created by the removal of excess makeup. Go into the bottom inner corner with a definer brush using the same white shadow you used on the top eyelid:
Using Singapore Sling and Purple Haze, follow through the bottom lash line making a purple-pink colour:
Line the inner eyes with UD Zero eyepencil (top and bottom):
It should look something like this:
Go in with Espresso Martini to fill the brows (if you like dark brows like me!) or stick to a brown (or add both like me!):
To look like this:
Line the top of the eyes with a black liner like the cream liner UD ink for eyes in Zero:
Using UD Heavy Metal glitter liner in Catfight, line the bottom lashline on top of the colours you put there before (Singapore Sling & Purple Haze):
Use the UD Cannonball Mascara for both top and bottom lashes:
Then go over with UD curling mascara for extra oomph:
Conceal under the eyes:
Add bronzer and blush (I've used Kiko tangerine glow set for this):
To finish off, use a lip colour of your choice.. I would have chosen a pink to match the eyes but I wanted to try the new Kiko lipgloss I bought!
So the final look:
And more pics of the eyes:
