Eye Makeup Tutorial: Ombre Purple Eyes

Hello Everyone,

I told you that I don’t feel comfortable using purple on my lids and that is the reason why this is the only purple look that I have created till date. The look also dates back to 2014 and I was starting with Eye makeup, so please excuse for not so good quality pictures, the eye shadow application and the browzz.. 🙁

I have used Maybelline Purple Eye Shadow Quad here which has lovely tones of purple and lilac shades but didn’t have a rich pigmented purple so I used INGLOT Eye Shadow for that.

Eye Makeup Tutorial - Ombre Purple Eyes

Step by Step Tutorial to Achieve this Look:

Start with apply a concealer to hide dark circles and under eye pigmentation and get a smooth base for the look to be started. I also did my eye brows beforehand and hence they are not a part of this tutorial.

  1. Apply a white base to enhance the color because purple won’t come good with a white base. You can go for a black base if looking for intense eye look.
  2. Blend it with fingers and even out on the lids.
  3. Using pearly medium-purple eye shadow with a  pointed pencil brush define the Outer-V corner and apply eye shadow over outer 1/3rd of the eye area.
  4. With a flat shading brush , pick up a light purple eye shadow and pat it gently on the center lid area. Pack the color till you achieve desired intensity
  5. Pick a matte taupe brown shade and blend it in the socket area between the lids and the brow bone using a fluffy blending brush. This will create a depth in the crease area and blend any harsh edges.
  6. For this step you can either use a dark metallic brown eye liner or apply a copper brown eye shadow with slanted liner brush and deposit the color till you achieve the desired pigmentation
  7. Tight line your waterline and apply the kohl a little bit on the outer 1/3rd of the eye area.
  8. Using an angled eye shadow brush, apply the same medium purple eye shadow and blend it lightly on outer 1/3rd area.
  9. Apply a peachy highlighter to brow bone area and line the upper lash line with any of your black liner, Curl your lashes and coat them with your favorite Mascara.

Here is a close up look at the steps.
