Color Challenge: Amethyst and Orange

 

0EBAC7ED-6730-4C69-BF73-044A0B14898BYesterday it was nearly 60 degrees in Brooklyn. Warm enough to grab a bottle of rosé and head to my friend’s backyard. To celebrate, I chose a spring-like combination of purple and orange eyeshadow.

Here’s how to get this look:

  1. Apply a copper eyeshadow (from Sleek’s Sunset Palette) with a fluffy brush to your eye crease, blending above and below.
  2. With a small brush, pack a purple eyeshadow (Urban Decay Omen) onto the lid near from your lash line to your crease.
  3. Blend the crease and lid color using windshield wiper motions along the eye socket.
  4. Apply a matte dark purple shadow (Lorac PRO Palette’s Deep Purple) to the outer corner of the eye and blend with small, circular motions.
  5. Apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes (Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes).
  6. Define eyebrows with a gel, and brush through with a clean spoolie (Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde).
  7. Apply a soft pink tinted lip balm (Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rosé).
  8. Using your pinky finger, apply a white highlighter (Colourpop Fanny Pack) to the top of your cheekbone.
  9. Sweep a powder peach blush (Tarina Tarantino’s Feather) on your cheeks.
  10. Using your ring finger, apply a reddish-brown cream contour (Colourpop Aphrodisiac) to the hollow of your cheek, and blend upwards.
  11. Brush on a bronzer along your hairline (BareMinerals Warmth)
  12. Finish with a blurring powder all over (Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light).
