I know it's been a bit, but here's tutorial #2!! (click here to see #1)
Don't forget to take the quick poll in my right sidebar please!------>
Purple is by far one of my favorite colors to wear in the Fall; all shades of it!
This look is a basic smoky look using a deep plum color rather than black or brown. TRY IT! Next time you need a deep color opt for a deep plum or blue rather than black or brown and you’ll get a beautiful and rich depth. It’s also a fun way to use color without being it too bold or otherwise unwearable.
Easy, wearable makeup is what I love!
Step 1: Apply a light base on your eyelids. - You can use any eyeshadow primer that you normally use or a light colored cream eyeshadow in any form (pot or pencil).
Step 2: ALL OVER LID – The all-over lid color used is nude - matte color. USE AN EYESHADOW BRUSH TO COVER YOUR LID WITH THIS COLOR.
Step 3: INNER CREASE – The next color is a medium purple. USE AN EYESHADOW BLENDING BRUSH TO SWEEP THIS COLOR IN YOUR CREASE. BLEND WELL AND BLEND INNER AND OUTER CORNERS OF EYE LID.
Step 3: OUTER CREASE/ OUTER ‘V’ – The next color is a dark plum. USE AN EYESHADOW BLENDING BRUSH TO SWEEP THIS COLOR IN YOUR CREASE. BLEND WELL AND BLEND INNER AND OUTER CORNERS OF EYE LID.
Step 4: HIGHLIGHT – Use a light white or cream colored shadow as your highlight color. USE YOUR BLENDING BRUSH TO APPLY YOUR HIGHLIGHT COLOR ACROSS YOUR BROW BONE AND BLEND WELL.
Step 5: LINER – I used black eyeliner on the outer half of my lower waterline & upper lash line.
USE A SMALL SMUDGE BRUSH OR SHADOW BRUSH TO APPLY THE DEEP PLUM COLOR BELOW YOUR LOWER LASH LINE. (helps create depth of the eyes and hide any darkness under your eyes!)
Step 6: MASCARA – It’s your look’s finishing touch! Apply some mascara to both upper and lower lashes and you’re all done!
