Ametrine Eye Tutorial

“Count your joys instead of your woes, count your friends instead of your foes”

– Irish Proverb

Hello my lovelies!

I am legitimately so excited to post this look I can barely contain myself. It has sparkle, it has funky colors, and it has a video to accompany it on IGTV that will be out this Saturday, so go ahead and check that out.

I definitely did not plan on modeling this look after the gemstone I have assigned to this makeup, but it all worked out anyway and I am super happy with the results. Purple and yellow has got to be one of my favorite color combinations of all time in makeup, and of course I will throw glitter on essentially anything if I can.

I have always noticed on sites like Instagram and Pinterest that other artists were able to create amazingly vivid glitter looks, and I always felt frustrated that I could not seem to achieve that effect. While playing around in my vast collecting and creating this look, I decided to dip one of my glitter liner brushes into some loose glitter, and I now feel like I discovered the makeup equivalent of the black hole. In all seriousness, I am certain that other people have done this before, but having my little eureka moment reinstated my love for what I do and reminded me that I still have passion for this, even when it gets hard to keep up or I feel like I am not successful at this.

Let’s Get Started:


The eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyes with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
  2. Place tape angled toward the brow on the outer corner of the eye to help with shadow placement and save on cleanup time.
  3. Pack and blend the first shadow into the crease and toward the browbone, maintaining a soft winged shape toward the tape.
  4. Carve out the lid with concealer following the same winged shape.
  5. Pack the second shadow onto the concealed area, still following the outline.
  6. Lightly blend out the harsh edge between the two shadows while still maintaining definition.

Lower lashline:

  1. Take the first shadow once again and blend across the entire lower lashline.

Other:

  1. Create a thin winged liner with black liner toward the tape, following the same shape as the shadows.
  2. Apply a silver glitter directly above the black liner in the same shape. I used an Urban Decay glitter liner with some NYX loose glitter to achieve this.
  3. Highlight the tear ducts with the second shadow.
  4. Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply false lashes if you would prefer.
