This look is bold and definitely for nighttime, seen on celebs like Leighton Meester and the runways of LMFF and Narcisco Rodriguez.
The look is surprisingly easy to perfect, and once you have it down you’ll be making sultry eyes with some handsome gentleman in no time.
Like anything, the key to perfecting your makeup is practice, practice, practice!
One. A bold eye, like a house, is nothing without a solid yet simple foundation. Make sure to keep your lips and cheeks muted. Once you have applied your primer (a must to protect your skin!) prep with a matte foundation to keep shine to a minimum. Make sure you apply Concealer to the under eye area & the top eyelid. This will create the perfect base for the eyeshadow so that your look lasts through the night.
Two. Choose a purple that suits your complexion. Blend your eyeshadow across your whole lid- make sure to reach the colour just below your brow bone. Blend the same color across your lower lash line. Take care here, layer the colour slowly and gently to build colour rather than whacking it all on at once (you don’t want to look like you have a black eye!). To enhance the colour, blend a golden-brown toned eyeshadow applied first onto the inner corners of your eye working upwards to the start of the eyebrows.
Three. Its all about definition, without this your eyes will look tiny! Trace along the bottom and lash line with black eyeliner and finish off by framing the eyes with a few coats of mascara.
Four. You’re almost done here, to match the purple hue you should not opt for a bronzer for contouring. Use a soft pink to highlight the cheeks.
Hit the town in your best LBD and have fun!
