Tutorial: Bold Purple Smokey Eyes

Okay, so this time I will show you how I did this:



This is actually my part of previous collaboration with my friends. It's just too many pictures to be posted in one article, also I want to make this tutorial as detail as possible.


Aside from eyebrow tools, you're gonna need:
  • Dark purple, light purple, white, and skintone eyeshadow colors
  • Black gel/creamy color
  • Mascara
  • Black pencil
  • Eyeshadow base
  • Softlens and falsies (optional)


Just for your reference, here are the shadows I used for this look.





You can either use this or find similar ones on your own collections. The products breakdown will be mentioned at the end of this post.

Okay, let's start!


Draw your eyebrows first, then apply eye primer on all over your lids to avoid creasing.



Using a small fluffy blending brush, apply a skintone color on your brow bone to give it more dimension. Blend it upward.



Apply a creamy black color on your upper eyelid, but don't go above your crease. You can also use a black gel liner. Here I just used a creamy black pencil by Make Over. This will be our second eye primer.



Blend that black shit with a fluffy blending brush, up to your crease.



With a fluffy blending brush, apply a light purple color on your brown bone.



With an eyeshadow brush, apply a dark purple covering the previous black color. Blend it with the light purple.



Using an angled brush, apply the same dark purple on your lower lash line. Connect it with the color on your upper lids.



Blend that purple with an eyeshadow brush.



Highlight your brown bone with white eyeshadow.



Color your waterline with black pencil.



Apply falsies.




And don't forget your mascara.

And there it is, you are done!
