I am clearly no makeup artist but I wanted to share with you a look that I think looks pretty good that I ‘created’ one night whilst playing with makeup. I feel like most people have the Morphe 350 pallet so I thought, why not create this look and upload a ‘tutorial’ to my blog – and here I am.
I’ve decided to wear this eyeshadow look for halloween as I am being a devil (and couldn’t do any special halloween makeup to save my life). Hopefully you all love this ‘tutorial’ – lets begin
1 – First off I primed my eyes with the Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer and Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and set it with some translucent powder (I used Laura Mercier’s). This will ensure that the shadows apply seamlessly to the lids and will make sure that the eyeshadow stays on all night!
2 – I then added an orange toned colour to the crease, bringing it nearly all the way up to the eyebrow. I like to bring my transition colour up near my eyebrow as I do not have much crease space and also have slightly hooded eyes so I feel as if this helps my eyes look like they have a deeper crease once I add more colours. For this I used a Zoeva 224 Luxe Defined Crease brush.
3 – I started to deepen up the colour of this transition shade with a darker orange colour, keeping the eyeshadow slightly lower than the first shade, but not yet in the crease. I used the same brush as the previous step for this.
4 – Now we need to start defining the crease. I took a darker red/brow colour for this and lightly buffed this into my crease and blending it just above it. For this I used a Zoeva 227 Luxe Soft Definer brush. I then blended all of these colours together with a Morphe E23 to avoid any harsh lines.
5- After this, I then took a Zoeva 231 Luxe Petit Crease brush and added a warm dark shade into the crease and just above, building up the colour. I then went over this again with the Morphe blending brush to avoid any harsh lines.
6 – I then took a Zoeva 230 Luxe Pencil brush which is a small detailed pencil brush and started to define the crease even more. Now for the shimmer! I took a copper shimmer shade from the pallet with my finger (as I think this makes the shimmer stand out more) and applied it from my inner corner to half way across my eyelid. I then took a lighter pink/white shade from the pallet and added this into the middle of my eye to make the shimmer pop even more.
7 – Not to forget the lower lash line – I added all of the shades we used on the crease using a Zoeva 226 Smudger brush to define the lower lash line and tie the look together. I then took the first orange colour on a larger pencil brush and buffed this slightly under the shades I had just placed to make the look even smokier.
8 – Time for mascara! I use Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for the upper lashes as this gives my eyelashes so much volume and makes them look so black and then I use Benefit Roller Lash on my lower lashes as this doesn’t make the lashes too thick, but elongates them and this is what I wanted for my lower lashes.
And here’s the final look!!
I hope you enjoyed this ‘tutorial’ and hope to see you back soon!
