Valentine's day is coming up quick, so I thought I'd share an eye look that I did inspired by it. This look is very soft and romantic, and pretty easy to create! And it's a good look if you don't want a dramatic smokey look.
I achieved this look by applying an eyeshadow primer, and then placing a cream colored eyeshadow underneath the brow bone and on the inner corners of the eyes. This will create a highlighted effect.
Then take a medium brown and blend it into the crease and fading it towards the brow bone to create a transition between the brow bone highlight and the colorful shades that will be placed on the lid.
Next take a medium purple shade and blend it onto the outer corners of the eyes, and also blend the shade into the crease, overlapping the brown shade placed earlier.
Mix a tiny bit of black eyeshadow with the purple eyeshadow and blend it onto the corner of the eye, keeping the color closer to the lash line than the crease. Blend these two eyeshadows onto the lower lash line as well.
Then place a light, shimmery, cool-toned brown eyeshadow (I'm having a hard time describing Urban Decay's YDK eyeshadow hehe) on the middle and inner part of the eyelid. Complete the look with black eyeliner and mascara.
