Eyeshadow is my favorite kind of makeup so I wanted to create a bold eyeshadow look. When I went to do this look I honestly had no idea what I was going to do other than a bold look. I first reached for my Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette and my eyes were drawn to the purple eyeshadow so I created a look with my Smoky Palette and also with my Naked 3 Palette.
Here is the makeup look that I created. I would like to add that I used the front camera of my phone so the pictures aren’t of great quality.
Since this is a bold eye look, I decided to do my eyeshadow before applying my foundation. I applied Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over my eyelids to get them ready for the eyeshadow. From my Naked Smoky Palette I applied Radar, a shimmery light brown, on my crease. I also applied Whiskey, a dark brown matte, on my outer crease and onto the outer part of my eyelid. From my Naked 3 Palette I applied Liar, a purple/pink shimmery color, on my eyelid blending it with the dark brown eyeshadow. I then applied Smolder, a dark purple satin color, from my Smoky Palette over where I put the Whiskey eyeshadow. This made the purple eyeshadow a bit darker and it and not too purple-y. Back to my Naked 3 Palette, I put Factory, a shade darker than Liar, where Liar and the dark purple eyeshadow mix. ( This actually didn’t do much but I was just experimenting). I also applied Trick, a shimmery copper color, in the middle of my eyelid to brighten the color. I then placed High, a very light pink shimmery color, from the Smoky Palette on my inner tear duct.
I used two eyeliners for the wing, Laura Geller Eye Calligraphy Slanted & Classic Tip Liquid Liner both in black. I use the Slanted tip to create the wing, it makes it super easy. I then do the rest of line with the Classic tip.
After this I did my face makeup. I put on Benefit’s Puff Off! to soothe my under eye area. I like to mix my primer, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Light, with my MAC Studio Fluid Fix foundation before I put it on. This makes my foundation last way longer!! For my concealer, I use MAC Pro Longwear. I apply it on my under eye area and around my eyebrows. This helped clean up my eyeshadow since it was looking a bit uneven.
I did a light contour with my NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny. I used the blush in my Laura Geller Baked Color & Contour. Lastly, for my highlighter, I used theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer.
On my waterline, I used Perversion by Urban Decay. I set the eyeliner with Crave, a black matte shadow from my Urban Decay Naked Basics. To add to the smoky affect, I put Whiskey on the outer half of my lower lash line. I also put Smolder on the outer fourth of my lower lash line. On the inner half of my lower lash line, I put Faint, a matte brown from Naked Basics, so it would be smoky but not too hardcore.
I then did my eyebrows with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown. After curling my eyelashes, I applied two coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.
To finish the look, I applied a bit of Peppermint ChapStick. I lined my lips very lightly with my MAC Vino lip liner. I blend it that so that it would be light. For the lip color I used the AVON Tint ‘n Go in Berry Baie.
Here is a close up of my eyes:
This was a pretty lengthy post and I hope it flows well when y’all read it. I had so much fun creating this look even though I was nervous since it has been a while since i did this kind of look.
I hope y’all like the look!
Do you prefer bold lip, bold eyes, or both?
