I was inspired to create this look after seeing an image in Company magazine in the UK. The model was wearing a gorgeous purple/pink eye and it totally got me in the mood for Spring! If you’d like to see how I created this look, please keep on reading!
I used Urban Decay Primer Potion to prime my lids.
I then used the Benefit Creaseless Cream in Honey Bunny, just as a base and to give my shadows something to stick to. It also helps to make them slightly more vibrant.
Using a flat shader brush, I applied a pink colour from the Sleek Original Palette all over my lid up to my crease, this is the colour on the bottom row, third from the left. This colour has quite a lot of ‘sheen’ to it, if you would prefer a more matte colour I recommend going for it, however I only wanted to use the one palette for this tutorial.
Next, using a MAC 217 (or a blending brush of your choice!) I applied the bronze colour directly next to the pink colour (third from the right on the bottom row) very lightly into my crease. Because of the lighting in my spare room it is not showing up too well on camera, but it added a little definition to my crease.
With the same flat shading brush I used earlier, I took the purple shade in the palette (top row, second from left) and applied this close to my lashline. I have quite a small lid space so I did not need to take the colour higher than this. If you have more lid space than me, I recommend taking it higher. You can see the effect we want to get in the second picture. Blend this colour out with your blending brush so it is really soft.
In my inspiration picture, the purple on the lower lashine was more vibrant than on the upper lashline, so I applied Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Painted Purple as a base, before applying the same purple shade from the Sleek Palette on top.
Add lashings of mascara! This look had quite spidery lashes, so aim for this if you are brave enough!
On the cheeks I used Maybelline Dream Mousse in Peach Satin, which my fellow writer Linda was kind enough to send me as a present and I love!
And on my lips I used the Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti which comes out as a lovely, natural coral colour on my lips.
Here is the finished look! Sorry about my hair, I forgot it was half pinned up and after the photo my camera ran out of battery! Oops! Not a hot look!
I hope this has been useful! Let me know your favourite colours for Spring!
