This is not a real make-up :) It's done in Photoshop.
It is possible though to make something like this and have it stay. I'd recommend watching some tutorials on youtube for example. Sometimes you can learn qhite good things about make-up there.

Thanks X3
Hm... well, I can maybe give you a few advices. First try to buy good make-up even if it costs more. But the less dusty the eyeshadow is and the less your eyeliner smears the better. Those eye shadows which tend to crumble when you apply make it really hard to work with and they smear a lot.

Product reviews may help a lot. Maybe try make-up that can be applied wet or buy pigments or liquid make up. And I have heard that there is slo waterproof make-up (incuding eye shadow).
I use a colour base and powder to give my skin more texture and teeth so the make up will stay longer. Good primers or bases will also make the colors stronger and more intense. For my eyelines I mostly use waterproof liquid liners. You need practice to make a good beautiful line but once you have mastered it will be way better than a pencil or kajal.
In the end you will just have to experiment and try out everything. But with that you get a feeling what works and what not. Also try to ask the people who make awesome eye make-up or body paints here on DA what products they use and how they apply it ^^

I use Catrice and essence. The latter is not high quality, but their products are decent for the cheap price (and not being tested on animals).
Many people recommend Illamasqua and Mac, but those are expensive (but have high quality). It really depends on your budget. Cheaper brands will do it though for the beginning and for practice ^^

Dang! I love that yellow color you picked out. Is it like a gold?

It's actually a greenish yellow but due to layer blending it may appear like a gold (gold must not be of a orange yellow shade). ^^

Oh! So if it is not to be a orange or yellow shade then what? The greenish yellow color you said?

It's really not a orange shade. I have used the multiply layer blending mode and used the same technique as explained in one of my tutorials. I can later look into the file in PS and tell you how I did it and what options I have used if you are interested (I am currently on my mac not PC ^^)

PS that is Photoshop, right?

Yeah, it's Photoshop ^^ I am currently using photoshop only- in the past I have used gimp and the cheaper Photoshop Elements. The first is a great alternative the latter lacks layer masks.

Now I have gimp, no Photoshop XD I do want to get it though.

It should work with gimp too. It's only important that you duplicate your base image, then use the command hue and saturation to color the layer and then set it to multiply and use a layer mask (gimp supports masks). And then you do the same I have explained in my tutorial to create the eye shadow. ^^
Here are the options for the color of the eye shadow I have used, as you can see it's a yellow green: [link]
