Today I am going to be giving you a little tutorial on how I created the following look -This is only for the eye makeup which I did before my base so you can just do your usual makeup routine around this eye look if you want to try it out!
What I used for this look:
A Black Eyeliner pencil – I used the Astor 2 in 1 Khol & Contour Ultra Black
Firstly I just popped the tiniest amount of concealer on my eyelids and just blend it in with my finger tips. This gets rid of any discolouring or veins and just makes a smooth base for any eye products you’re going to use.
After this also with my fingertips I applied a small amount of eye primer. Sometimes I skip this step but it’s been really hot recently so I don’t want to get half way through the day and notice my eye shadows disappeared or smudged everywhere. I rub this all over my eyelid, my inner eye and my lower lash-line.
Next I took the Sleek eye shadow palette listed above and went for the matte purple colour with a fluffy brush. I applied this to the outer corners of my eyes, the crease and on my lower lash-line. I put this on quite messily because I neatened it up afterwards.
With a more precise brush I popped the first shimmery eye shadow over the whole of my eyelid, I applied a couple of coats to build it up but the shadows are generally quite pigmented.
I then used the shimmery colour underneath with the same brush and used this shade to blend the others together near the outer corner of my eye.
Once the eye shadows were applied I ran the blue eyeliner over the out corners of my water-line followed my black eyeliner. I smudged this in with my fingers to make it look more together and blended.
Next I put on the Supercat eyeliner on my eyelids and created a tiny flick because I’m not that amazing at applying liquid liner. After this I just put 2 coats of mascara on my top lashes and 1 coat on my bottom lashes to make them stand out more.
I love this look and think it’s perfect for summertime. The colours are subtle but still have that brightness especially with the shimmery shades. Let me know if you enjoyed this post and what you think of this look!
