Pink and Purple Eye

Hi everyone,

I did this amazingly pretty pink and purple eye ook Nouk a while ago and I promised you guys to tell you how I did it so here it is.

I knew that when working with pinks and purples that the littlest fallout would make her look like she was punched in the eyes, so I did the eyes first and then the foundation.

I used Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion to ensure her eye makeup to stay on perfectly. As a basecolour I used Smashbox Eyeshadow in Vanilla and then I used a little Sephora - Colorful Mat Mono Eyeshadow in White on the inner corners of her eyes to brighten them a little more. For these colours I used an Urban Decay - Crease Brush I used Urban Decay - DeLuxe Eyeshadow in Sting (which is the pink you see) starting very lightly and then building the colour up more on the outer corner. When working with pinks and reds, you should always line the eyes with another colour and blending very very well. I also used this colour very slightly on the lower lashline. On to ensure great blending I used a Models Own - Shading Eyeshadow Brush because it's sooo fluffy, on the lower lashline I used an Urban Decay - Wonder Brush, this brush gives amazing precision.

I used a little bit of Urban Decay - Fishnet around her lashline to make the pink a little more purple. I also used a little of this on the outer part of her eyelid. In her crease I used Urban Decay - Freakshow to add depth to the eyes and I also blended this on her lower lashline. I used this more on the upper part of the crease and blending it up a lot, opening the crease up even more.

To make her look even more special I added a thin line of Models Own - Glitter Eyeliner in Purple Princess. Nouk used her own mascara thickly on her lashes and this finished the eyes.

I took away all the fallout under her eyes and used some extra moisturizing eyecream under her eye. To prepare the face for the look I used Smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light. I applied this with a Make Up For Ever - Finishing (foundation) brush in N20 this is a small foundation brush which has a little of a pointy tip, which means it's great for foundation and the occasional concealer application. I used Smashbox - High Definition Healthy FX Foundation in Light L3 and Sephora's - Concealer Palette to highlight under her eyes. I used Make Up For Ever - HD Powder to set the makeup with a large powder brush. I contoured her cheekbones with a dark contouring powder by Smashbox and used this on her jawline as well.

I updated this look with products and more pictures. (click the picture to go to the post)
