Eyeshadow Look: Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eye Shadow in Rio De Rose Gold

I wanted to do a look that centered on Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Eye Shadow in Rio De Rose Gold. I realize this is a dramatic look and I probably wouldn't wear it on an everyday basis but to each their own. The Coconut Watercolor eyeshadows are extremely long lasting, very pigmented and have the most beautiful shine. 
I started the look by priming my eyes with my Urban Decay Primer Potion and then I used a powder over top to make blending easier. I took a medium toned matte brown through the crease with a fluffy brush. This acted as my transition shade just to make sure everything looks good and blended out. You can use whatever transition shade you're comfortable with.
I then took Sunset from my itCosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette and started concentrating it on the outer third of my eye with my MAC 217 brush. Slowly I started working that shade into my crease and eventually to the inner third of my lid. I kept a space open in the middle of the lid. I blended that out until I felt comfortable with the opacity making sure the colour was deeper on the outer corner than the inner corner. 
Next comes the star of the show. I took the Coconut Watercolor Eye Shadow in Rio De Rose Gold and used my finger to apply it to the centre of my lid making sure not to get any in my crease. I blended it out with my finger. I also used the liquid shadow on my bottom lashline in the inner third just to bring some light to my eyes. Under my eyes I used some black shadow and smudged it out with some of the matte brown I used as my transition shade
I used Sheer Joy as my brownbone highlight and the tranforming pearl shade in the tear duct. I used a black pencil liner on my waterline and to tightline and I used Maybelline's Gel liner in black to draw a thin line close to the lashes. I finished the look with a few coats of mascara on my top and bottom lashes. 

Let me know what you think of the finished look. I was really happy with how it turned out.
