Soft Purple Eyes

This look is a delicate, soft smoky eye that can be created with any color combination. I chose to use purples because it reminds me of spring and it felt light and fresh. This look is perfect for any special occasion or for a daring bride. These shades of purple flatter everyone and feel very romantic and feminine, perfect for any summer night.

1. Prime the eyes to ensure long lasting, crease proof, intense color payoff; I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion.
2. Blend a medium matte brown into the crease to add shadow and to give the purples something to blend into.
3. Blend a medium purple shadow throughout the length of the crease and soften all the edges, this is the base of the whole eyeshadow look.
4. Softly blend a small amount of a dark purple shadow into the outer edge of the eye and drag it slightly into the crease.
5. Highlight the center of the eye and the inner corner with a light, shimmery lavender color in a pressing motion.
6. Press a tiny bit of glitter onto the center of the lid to add some sparkle, I used my Sephora Glitter Liner & Mascara in 'Sweetheart Pink'.
7. Add mascara to the top lashes and the outer corner of the bottom lashes.
8. Highlight the inner corner of the bottom lashline with the same light shimmery lavender and then blend the medium purple into the outer edge of the bottom lashline.
9. Finish the look by filling in the brows, I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz in 'Medium Ash'.
