I wore this eye look to an event I was going to and loved it so much I had to share it. The plum color goes well with brown or green eyes and gives you that smokey look without to much dark drama. Paired with a tan or nude jacket this look really can stand out. For details on what I used to get this look see below.
Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly - I used this to set a base for my eyeshadow. It makes you eyelid one colour and takes away any redness you may have $26.00
Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in the colour Bone - I use this all over to set the base. I also find that when you do this it is easier later to blend the eyeshadow colours on top. $32.68
Tarte Cosmetics' Tartelette Pallet- I love this pallet because all the shades are matte and super pigmented and blend-able! I used it to build up the crease and all over the lid. First I started with wanderer to build up the crease and then went in with dreamer to darken the crease up slightly and add more definition. Finally I mixed best friend and bombshell together and put that all over the lid and blended it back into the crease so it had a nice transition. $51.95
Mac Cosmetics Fix Plus - TIP: if you spray fix plus on your brush before you put eyeshadow on it it makes the eyeshadow stand out more. I did exactly to get the plum even darker. $26.00
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper - I used this liner to start on the inside of the eye and dragged it out. $28.39
Mac Cosmetics Fluidline in Black Track - I finished with a brush and this liner just because I find it easier to create a wing with a brush then a liquid stick - I dunno I am weird. $19.50
Doucce Eye Liner in Black (500) - I added this to my waterline to deepen the black. $15.41
Mac False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara - lastly I applied this on my lashes to make them darker and stand out more. I love this mascara! $27.00
On my eyebrows I used:
Mac Eyebrow Finisher in the colour clear $21.00
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in the shade Medium Brown $21.00
Benefit's Gimmie Brow in the shade Light/Medium $16.69
I am NOT an affiliated of any of these makeup companies however I do think these products are top notch and would recommend them to anyone!
