Pretty in Purple Shadow Tutorial

1/15/2018 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments

Pantone's 2018 Color of the Year has us feeling inspired for many different reasons. But, mostly, we love any excuse to flaunt a flirty shade like purple! We took a soft spin on Ultra Violet, to express a vibrant, yet approachable look you can rock all year long. Many people stick to neutrals when it comes to their makeup, but this is a perfect example of how you can play with color to create a look that compliments almost any eye color, especially you hazel and green-eyed babes out there! Read on for a simple step-by-step tutorial on perfecting purple hues!

1. Begin by prepping the face with a moisturizer of your choice, preparing the eyes with Concealer, and setting with a Finishing Powder if needed.

2. Take your daily bronzer or contour and sweep into the crease of the eye as a transition shade. 

3. Use a blender brush to lightly apply the gray shade from the Aubergine Eye Shadow Trio to the lid.

4. Using the same brush as step 3, pick up the deeper shade of the Mystic Mulberry Duo and work into the outer corner of the lid.

5. Using the same Duo, now press the lighter shade on the inner ball of the eye and blend as needed.

6. Line the upper lashline with a charcoal shade of eyeliner and lightly smudge with your finger or a brow brush.

7. Line the lower lashline and waterline with the same liner, then smoke it out using that same deeper shade from the Mystic Mulberry Duo.

8. Get those lashes to reach new heights! Generously apply 2-3 coats of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.

Finish the look by adding your own creativity and flair! Contour the face and add a pop of color with blush, then top it all off with your favorite lippies! Rock this twist on Ultra Violet with confidence to set the tone for 2018!
