Purple has always been one of my favorite colors to use on the eyes. It is the perfect color to wear for fall and winter and just makes my eyes pop! Below is a step-by-step makeup tutorial on how you can create a great purple smoky eye without even using purple eyeshadow (yes you can!)
Step 1. Prep the eyelid with a primer (NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base) to ensure more vibrant and longer-lasting color.
Step 2. Apply a shimmery light pink eyeshadow (Yaby pp057 strawberry sherbert Pearl Paint Eyeshadow) onto the eyelid from the lashline all the way to past the crease.
Step 3. Using a dense eyeshadow brush like my newest must-have Piccasso 239B, define the crease and lashline with a dark blue color (right shade of NARS Mandchourie Duo Eyeshadow).
Step 4. Line the upper and lower lashlines with a black pencil (MAC Feline Eye Kohl).
Step 5. Soften the line by smudging a dark blue shadow (right shade of NARS Mandchourie Duo Eyeshadow) on top with a small brush (ink by Zing 13 Eyebrow Brush).
Step 6. Using a blending brush (MAC 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush), soften any harsh edges.
Step 7. Add a dab of the light pink shadow (Yaby pp057 strawberry sherbert Pearl Paint Eyeshadow) on the center of the eyelid with a damp brush for an extra pop of color.
Step 8. Brush a frosty white shadow (Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit) under the brow bone to highlight.
Step 9. Curl your lashes and coat with black mascara (Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara in Extreme Black). Apply fake lashes (Jealousness Fake Lashes in JS-507 Captivating Cat Eye) as desired.
Step 10. Keep your eyebrows soft by filling them in with a brown brow powder (Anna Sui Eyebrow Color Compact in 02 Yellow brown) that is lighter than your natural brow color.
Step 10. Clean up any eyeshadow fallouts before applying foundation and concealer and you are done!
