Step-by-Step Tutorial

 Step 1 : Apply paint pot Genuine Treasure all over the lid (as base).

Step 2 : Apply a warm purple eye shadow (Inglot 446P) on the outer half of the lid.

Step 3 : Apply the pink eye shadow (Inglot AMC 74) in the crease and blend out the purple. Apply the purple eye shadow on the outer half of the lower lash line.

Step 4 : Apply black kohl on the outer half of the waterline and smudge it onto the lower lash line for a smokey look. To avoid the look getting too heavy or smokey, I have lined only half of the waterline with kohl. If you want the look to be  more dramatic, you can line it entirely with kohl.

Step 5 : Line upper lash line with a black pencil (same kohl I have used in the previous step) and soften it slightly by smudging with a brush or an ear-bud.

Step 6 : Apply a soft gold eye shadow on the inner half of the lid.

Step 7 : Apply a small amount of sparkly purple eye shadow on the outer half of lid (optional). I have used MAC Mineralize eye shadow Young Punk for this.

Step 8 : Apply pale gold highlighter on brow bone and inner corner (not on tear duct) and finish off with a coat of your favorite mascara!

Clean up the fall out from the under eye area, apply foundation/concealer/face powder and then fill in your brows.

 

You can pair this eye makeup with your favorite pink/berry/purple lipstick and soft pink cheeks. Add some highlighter on the cheekbones to a soft festive glow!

    1. I’ll review the lipstick soon Preethi 🙂 Highlighters are the cheat method to get glowing looking skin – they are basically powder/cream product that contain light reflection particles (shimmer). So when you apply it on the high points of the face where light hits naturally first, light bounces off the particles giving a shine and glow to the skin. The revlon product I’ve used here is really nice, I will review it next week!

  3. I love the eye shadow combination – it looks lovely and blends in so well together.

    Do you use a different coloured light bulb or lamp as lighting to take FOTD photos? I noticed that the colours didn’t show up so well in the FOTD pic but are very clear in the individual photos.
