Graphic Purple Eyeliner
Purple is a universally flattering color. It also happens to be my favorite color since I was a child and that is what drew me to this first Spring trend. I used a purple eye liner to create the outline, then using a small detail brush I filled in the base with Mac Cosmetics’ Purple Paint like this one. To make it pop even more I topped it with Juvia’s Place Masquerade eyeshadow palette using the shimmery purple shade Makeda. Finally I lined my upper eyelid with black liquid liner and extended it to a wing for a extra special touch.
For this look, I didn’t use blush at all. I took s brightest pink eyeshadow like the pink shade from my Juvia’s Place Zulu eyeshadow palette and swept on in a C-shaped motion around my cheeks, to my temples to just above my eyebrow. You can easily just pair this look with mascara and a simple gloss or take it up a notch and extend the drama to the lids like I did.
This look is so fun, I love an unexpected pop of color. For my base, I used a bright pink matte lipstick, a tip I learned from the amazing Mika from As Told By Mika. Also, this is a great way to get some use out of a lip color that doesn’t work so well on your lips. Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip Paint in Unlocked is a great choice to use as a base (but it also is really amazing on the lips too). After laying down the base, I topped it with shade Iri Jiri from Juvia’s Place Festival palette.
Pro Tip: use a separate brush to gently pat the lipstick on to your eyelid. Do not use the wand that the lipstick comes with, like I did because it could stain your eyelids which is exactly what happened to me.
This is a super simple look to recreate, but also bold enough to make you do a double take. I used beige liner to line my eye and wing it out and then set the liner with a shimmery ivory eyeshadow.
I love when colored mascara comes back on trend. It’s so fun and I’m not really sure why we don’t wear it year round. To recreate this look, sweep a shimmery light blue shadow all over your lid just about to your eyebrow and then line your top and lower lashes with a royal blue liner and then top it with a complementary shimmery blue shadow to set the liner and make it pop.
Then go in with multiple coats of blue mascara. I used this one from L’Oreal. For lips, the skies the limit. I paired it with a bold sparkly coral lippie but you could also keep it simple with a clear or neutral gloss to keep the focus on the lips.
Which of these looks will you recreate?
