As requested, here is a look with step-by-step tutorial on NARS Arabian Nights Trio Eyeshadow, a gorgeous trio of black shadows with glitter. Hope you guys like it!

Wearing NARS Arabian Nights Trio Eyeshadow

Step 1. Prep the eyelid with NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base to ensure more vibrant and longer-lasting color.

Step 2. Using a small synthetic brush, apply NARS Lili Marlene Cream Eyeshadow on the eyelid. This will help to prevent glitter fall out.

Step 3. Pat – don’t sweep – the middle shade of NARS Arabian Nights Trio Eyeshadow (black with purple glitter) onto the eyelid. A dense brush like Korean brand Piccasso #239B is perfect for this.

Step 5. With a fluffy brush like MAC 224 Blending Brush, blend the black shade onto the crease and soften the edges without touching the color on the center.

Step 6. Brush the shimmery white shade in NARS Pandora Duo Eyeshadow under the brow bone with a flat brush like ink by Zing 07 Highlighter Brush. Blend downwards.

Step 7. To play up the purple glitter, add a dab of the pearlescent purple from NARS Jolie Poupee Duo Eyeshadow in the center of the eyelid. This will also add a nice twist to an otherwise plain black smoky eye.

  8. This is absolutely my most favourite makeup tutorial by far. i really appreciate how you showed the pictures step by step instead of just… words (i am a visual learner, i guess?) the step by step pictures also gives me an idea what colours they are (since i don’t have 95% of what you’re using :D) keep this up! :D

  9. i love this makeup tutorial.What kind of circle lenses do you use in this tutorial?

    • Thanks Sophie. I’m not wearing circle lenses – they are just regular color contacts from this Japanese brand called Seeshell :)
