Spring is almost here and that means you can use tons of colors in your makeup again! My personal favorite color to wear on my eyes is purple because I have brown eyes and it helps bring them out. Purple looks nice on any color eye though! Here are two eye looks that I did.. they look very similar but one is more affordable than the other. I get complimented on this look all the time so I wanted to share it with you all!
First I began by priming my eyes. I use a concealer [$9] (which I did a review on) to do this step but a real eyeshadow primer would probably work better (I don't really know though because I have never owned a real eyeshadow primer. lol)
Next, I used my Mary Kay Soft Luster Eye Color Stick in Violet Dawn as a base.
Before I get to the next steps, here are products that I used for the less expensive way to achieve a vibrant violet look!
Next, I used the Elf Brightening Eye Pot which is actually a lavender-ish color (#2 in the picture) to lighten up the lid color. Since the look wasn't as vibrant as I would like it to be, I used the Jessie's Girl Eye Dust in Ultra Violet [$4] and this added tons of sparkles and dimension! :)
After the eyeshadow, I lined my water-line with Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black 201 [$7]. I used the Maybelline Ultra Liquid Liner in Black (#6) [$7.50] for my top eyeliner but I used the brush from the Fresh Minerals Liquid Liner [#4] (the product in there is dry now) because it is very precise. Then I used two types of Maybelline mascara to coat my eyelashes (#1- $7.50 and #5- $7.50)! Below is the finished look! Sorry I can't look directly at the camera during these pictures because if I do then you won't be able to see the eyeshadow very well because of Asian eyelids :/ lol oh well.
Alright! Here is the version using a MAC Pigment in Nocturnelle.
I started the same way with the concealer as an eyeshadow primer. However, I did not use a base because MAC Pigments [$19.50] are amazing and go on very pigmented! I did the same steps with the eyeliner and mascara as mentioned in the paragraph above. This look is a little brighter than the other one.
I hope you enjoyed this post and try this look!! Let me know what you think! Happy Spring!!
