Today is another purple-y look. If you saw my review on this Morphe 25B palette, you’ll know that I’m loving it right now. So I wanted to share this look with you that was requested on Twitter. When wanting to create a look with either this palette, or Morphe’s 25A palette, I couldn’t decide which to use. I took to Twitter to get my followers to pick and it was the 25B palette that one.
The shades I used in this look was picked by the wonderful @XO_DT. She picked three beautiful shades for my to incorporate into the look. I loved creating a look this way, as it’s always so nice to get my audience involved in posts too. I definitely want to do this kind of thing more often!
- As with any look, the first step is to create a ‘blank canvas’ with some concealer and powder.
- For my transition shade, I took Image (3×1) on a fluffy brush and blended that through the crease.
- After the transition shade, I jumped straight into the dark shades. Taking Thief (4×5) a little at a time, I slowly started building the purple throughout my crease and outer corner. I did this multiple times to build it to the intensity I desired.
- My outer corner needed deepening more, so I took the shade Space (3×5) and applied and blended with a fluffy pencil brush.
- Once I was happy with how dark my outer corner was, I took the excess of Space through the crease slightly.
- To clear some of the colour on the lid, I swept a light layer of Shy (1×1) over the lid area.
- I wanted a soft shimmer over the lid, so with a flat brush I pat some of Character (2×3) over the lid.
- To make sure that everything blend smoothly, I took a tiny bit of Space to blend into Character on the outer part of the lid.
- To darken the lash line so that my lashes didn’t stick out like a sore thumb, I applied a thin line of Effort (5×5) right against my natural lashes.
- Topped off my upper lashes with some Tatti Lashes in the style TL3. They’re really fluffy and thick, I’m really loving these at the moment.
- For my lower lash line, I took a mixture of Thief and Space and blend them out using a fluffy brush.
This look is quite a simple, yet effective one. It’s so strange because my eyes look so green in these photos too. I swear my eyes change colour depending on what eyeshadow colours I’m wearing! I decided not to highlight my inner corner with this look as I wanted it to be quite simple and let the lashes to do the talking. I’ve developed such a love for them, I can tell I’m going to be shopping Tatti Lashes a lot.
I loved creating a look this way, so send me your palette and shade suggestions! It’s such a nice way of doing it. I get you guys involved, but I also get to try shade combinations that I may not have tried myself. I’m going to aim to do this at least once a month, but would like to do it more.
Send me your suggestions here.
