Hello my lovelies!
First and foremost, I apologize for my unannounced week off from blogging. I had a brief run-in with the ER and some medical issues, but all is well and I’m back to my version of normal.
A quick disclaimer, I have seen multiple self-proclaimed authors of this particular eye look, and while I did pull the idea off of Pinterest, I tweaked it slightly to my own taste. Credit is due to each artist who did this look, but I’m not going to list them all here; that would be an incredibly long post.
I’m going to start doing color themes for two blogging week periods, as I’ve noticed that people seem to like more uniformity than scatter brained ideas like I often have. I am not a very organized person, but I’m hoping that incorporating a colorful theme to my social media postings will create more interest and garner more viewership.
Let’s Get Started:
I used mostly single shadows that I will list down below, so choose shadows from your own collection that you feel would best mimic this look.
- Prime the lids with a shadow primer or concealer that you prefer.
- Pack an orange shadow into the crease, blowing upward and outward dramatically with blending. Blend any harsh edges with a clean brush in the brow area.
- Carve out half of the lid with concealer, leaving it as a tacky base for the next shadow.
- Pack a cool-toned light purple onto the carved area. Don’t worry about diffusing the edges just yet.
- In between the purple and orange shadows, carve out a small area with concealer once again.
- Pack a warm-toned gold glitter onto the concealer. You can use glitter glue for this part, but I prefer to mark where I want to lay down the glitter by using concealer.
- Lightly buff out the harsh edges of the glitter. In my opinion, the messiness of the glitter being diffused adds extra dimension.
- Blend the same orange shadow used earlier across the entire lower lashline, concentrating the majority of the pigment on the outer corner, creating an ombre effect.
- Highlight the tear duct with a light creamsicle colored shadow.
- Line the waterline with a nude eyeliner.
- Curl and coat your lashes with Mascara. Apply falsies if that’s your thing.
