A Quick & Easy Purple Eyeshadow Look

Quick & Easy Purple Eye Look

| A Quick & Easy Purple Eyeshadow Look! |


My favourite type of makeup looks are ones that are quick, easy and simple to do! One of my favourite looks for when I want to make a little bit more effort with my makeup is a subtle purple eye look with a little bit of shimmer on the lid to make my eyes pop. I have a combination of four eyeshadows that I like to use to achieve this look so I thought I'd share it in today's post!

1) Priming & Setting The Lid:
I always start my eye makeup with priming the lid and I usually use concealer to do this, mainly because I'm too lazy to use a separate eye primer and I also like to keep the number of products I use to a minimum. At the moment, I'm using the Mac Select Cover Up Concealer and it's my favourite concealer for priming my lids. To set the concealer I usually use a setting powder or a white/cream eyeshadow. For this look, I'll be setting it with setting powder as I'll be using a cream eyeshadow and they tend to crease more than powder eyeshadows. One of my favourite setting powders is my Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural.

2) The Crease Shade:
I always use a light transition shade in the crease and for this look, I like to use Buon Fresco from the ABH Modern Renaissance palette. This matte mauve shade is the perfect transition shade and it goes with so many different types of eyeshadow looks.

3) The Lid Shade:
For a pop of shimmer on the lid, I use the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz. I'd describe the shade as a pinky rose gold hue that has a slight mauvey shift to it. It has a gorgeous shimmery frost finish and it just looks so beautiful on the lids. I pop this all over the lid after applying the crease shade. It's so quick and effortless to apply, and the plus side of using a cream shadow instead of a shimmery powder is that there's a guarantee of no messy fallout. 

4) Adding Some Depth To The Outer Corner Of The Eye:
To add some depth to the look, I like to use a dark purple shade and the Makeup Obsession Eyeshadow in Mulberry is the perfect shade for this look! This shade has a little bit of shimmer in it but it doesn't really translate on the eyes, making it a great shade to use in the outer corner of the eye. There is a little bit of fallout from it but it's nothing major! 

5) The Lash Line:
I usually apply the same matte shades I used in the crease to the lower lash line but I do something slightly different with this look. Firstly, I apply the transition shade - Buon Fresco from the Modern Renaissance palette - to the lower lash line and then I add the shade Antique Bronze, which is from the same palette. This adds a little bit of bronzey smokiness to the look and I think it complements the look.
