Galaxy Inspired Eye Makeup Tutorial

I've always been interested in all things galaxy, outer space, and astronomy related, so I decided to do an eye makeup look inspired by the galaxy trends that have been very popular for the past few years!



 Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer all over the eye area to keep the shadows from fading and creasing.


Step 2: Apply a creamy, navy, cream eyeshadow base to the outer 2/3 of the eyelid.


Step 3: Apply a dark blue eyeshadow over the cream eyeshadow and blend underneath the eye, keeping it on the outer half.


Step 4: Apply a black eyeshadow to the outer corners of the eyes and blend into the blue shade.


Step 5: Pat a silver eyeshadow on to the inner 1/3 of the eyelid, the inner corner, and the inner half of the lower lash line.


Step 6: Blend a plumy-purple shade into the crease, and add a shade lighter than your skin tone on the brow bone to highlight. Finish the look off with eyeliner on the upper lash line and lower water line and mascara.

Here's the finished look!




Products Used:
