Dark Violet And Black Eye Makeup Look Tutorial:
Let’s follow the steps to get the dark violet and black eye makeup look:
Before we move on to the actual tutorial, we’ll need to get our eyes ready! Like all eye makeup tutorials, start the eye makeup with moisturizing your eyes! Gently pat some eye cream to the under eye area to hydrate and relieve the dryness. Apply and blend it completely with a light hand until it is fully absorbed into the skin. People with pigmented eyelids would have to use an orange or peach colored corrector prior to the layering of the concealer to get a flawless finish. Set the concealer with a translucent or compact powder to prevent the creasing of the cream applied earlier.
Now, pick a matte light purple eyeshadow and apply it to the eye socket or the crease area of your eyes. Load the eyeshadow in a fluffy blending brush. With a wind shield wiper motion, softly blend the color into the crease.
Now apply a creamy black eyeshadow or a black kajal base to the entire eyelid area and restrict application above the natural crease area of your eyes. The application of the cream base in this step needn’t be very neat as we will smudge it later to create a smokey look.
Now pick a darker matte purple eyeshadow and apply it over the crease area. This step will add a transition from the dark matte black to the light purple eyeshadow applied earlier.
Pick a rounded smudger or pencil type brush to softly blend the rough edges of the creamy kajal base applied in the earlier step. Blending, blending and blending ─ that’s what this whole step is about. Pull out a clean, fluffy blending brush and create circular motions over the darker purple eyeshadow applied in the previous step. Now blend for a seamless finish. You should remember to achieve a soft transition of colors from black, dark purple to light purple. Then, pick a shimmery violet eyeshadow. Apply it to the crease area of your eyes, and again start blending all the eyeshadows.
Now, pick a matte black eyeshadow and apply it to the center of your eyelid area. Remember to apply this eyeshadow above the smudged-out creamy base. Gently pat the black eyeshadow and avoid sweeping motion to achieve maximum color pay off.
Apply the same black kajal to the lower waterline of your eyes. Then, use the same pencil brush to gently blend out the kajal to the lower lash line of your eyes to create a soft balanced smokey look. Now pick the same matte black eyeshadow and set the kajal formula to prevent the creasing later. Apply a grayish highlighter shade to the inner corners of your eyes to highlight. Then, apply a shimmery highlighter shade to the brow bone area of your eyes.
Then, curl your eyelashes and apply lots of mascara to give an illusion of thicker and fuller eyelashes. If you love to create an intense and dramatic look, you can add false eyelashes.
Smoking hot—is what describes this gorgeous deep black and violet smokey look. Try it for an evening party and be ready to bask in all the attention!
