Here it is! The tutorial for Holiday Makeup Look 4 – Holiday Purple Smoky Eyes from the Holiday Makeup Look Series. Here is a reminder of what the look looked like:
As usual, start by applying a base: moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, and/or powder.
Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow base. This will help the eyeliner and eyeshadow stay in place and not smudge.
I used Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer.
Step 2: Using an eyeshadow brush, apply a light pinkish purple colored eyeshadow to your eyelids. Try not to go pass your crease (brow bone if you don’t have a crease).
I used the light pinkish purple eyeshadow from Loreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duos in Sculpted and E.L.F Studio Eyeshadow “C” Brush.
Step 3: Using the same eyeshadow brush, or a different one if you prefer, apply a darker shade of purple eyeshadow to the outer corner of your eye.
I used the dark pruple eyeshadow from Loreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duos in Sculpted and E.L.F Studio Eyeshadow “C” Brush.
Step 4: Using a blending brush or a fluffy eyeshadow brush, blend the dark purple eyeshadow into the crease of your eye (follow your brow bone if you don’t have a crease). Also blend the dark purple eyeshadow halfway inwards towards your inner eye. This will help create seemless transition between the light and dark purple.
I used E.L.F Blending Brush.
Step 5: Apply a shimmery white/cream colored eyeshadow to your brow bone. This will help highlight your brow bone. Don’t forget to blend the white/cream eyeshadow downward to your crease. This will help create a transition between the purple and the white/cream eyeshadow.
I used a shimmery cream eyeshadow from Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and E.L.F Studio Eyeshadow “C” Brush to apply. To blend I used E.L.F Blending Brush.
Step 6: Apply a plum colored eyeliner to to your top lash line, bottom lashline, and waterline. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect since it’s a smoky eye look.
I used Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil in 1999.
Step 7: Curl your lashes.
I used Shiseido Eyelash Curler.
Step 8: Apply mascara to your top and bottom lashes.
I used Physicians Formula Plump Potion Lash Pumping & Stimulating Mascara in Ultra Black Potion.
