When it comes to makeup it can be hard to introduce colour, especially when it comes to eyeshadows! But one of my favourite colours to play with is mauve/plum shades! They are so flattering and add enough colour without making us uncomfortable. Don’t get me wrong I love a good colourful eye look but I’m rarely bold enough to wear them out of the house, these mauves on the overhand are perfect!
I started by priming my lids using the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion all over the lid, then using a large fluffy brush I blended Limit (Urban Decay Naked 3) through the crease. I repeated this a few times to give this colour more punch! I then used a slightly smaller blending brush and blended Nooner (Urban Decay Naked 3) through the crease. I kept this in a more defined area than the previous shade. I then went in with a deep plum shade (Morphe 35T Palette – 5th row, 4th colour) and applied this along the mobile lid, using a flat shader brush. I used the brush I applied Nooner with the blend out the harsh line from the darker shade. I used the same shades along the lower lashline.
To finish the eyes I applied Urban Decay 24/7 Water Line Glide on Eye Pencil in Legend to the lower and upper waterline before applying lots of Benefit Roller Lash and Ardell Demi Wish False Lashes.
