For the face, be sure to check out part 1. For the eyes, stay tuned.
Note, I am doing this tutorial face then eyes but in real life I did the makeup eyes and then I finished the look with the rest of my face.
For this look, we were actually going to a wedding and I was wearing a blue sequin dress. So, I wanted to do a blue eye but not a full blue eye and I love the look of the pink’s and dusty rose’s in the Maybelline Soda Pop pallette and also in the UCanBe Aromas palette.
Let’s talk about the Aromas palette for a hot second. This is a dupe for the Huda Beauty New Nude palette which I own and love but it retails for $65.00 on Sephora.com and that’s up there. It’s pricey. So, when I found this dupe palette for $12.99 on Amazon I had to try it.
I purchase pricey palettes especially in these shades because they are gorgeous and I knew that I would use this palette on the regular. But, real talk, I don’t travel with my expensive palettes because I am not chancing them getting smashed so this seemed like a perfect option for that as well as for day to day.
The Aromas palette is amazing. I have done side by sides to compare it to the huda beauty palette and I have worn it all day and I can’t tell a difference. For $12.99 this is a great option if you aren’t into spending $65.00 on one eyeshadow palette.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get started on those eyes.
We are using two palette’s for this look but you could absolutely create a similar look with just the Maybelline Soda Pop palette. I love the dimensions of the dusty rose’s and pink’s of the Aromas palette so I think it deepens the look but the Cherry Cola and Cherry on Top shades in Soda Pop would work.
First thing’s first we want to pick up where we left off on part 1 and you are going to want to put either scotch tape or eyeshadow stencil pads on your eyes. You want to angle them from the outside of the eye to your brow because this is going to create a stronger line of definition and will create a crisper finished product.
For our transition shade we are going to go in with the Aromas palette and the third shadow in on the second row. The down side of this palette is that the shades are not named but we will make due for $12.99.
A small blending brush is going to work best for this first step. When applying your transition shade, you want to stick close to the crease. Always remember that you can add more product but it is a lot harder to take product off so start with a small amount on your brush, the crease is a small space and both of these palettes are quite pigmented and you don’t need a ton of color to make this area pop. Also remember, this is your transition color so we are building everything off of this color. Go easy.
Above your two pressed glitters on the Aromas palette are two darker shades. A dusty burgundy and a more chocolatey brown shade. Take the burgundy shade on a smaller brush and we are going to deepen the area on the outside of the crease with this shade. To make the eyes pop, we want to have brighter colors towards the inner eye and the deeper, more complex colors towards the outside of the eye.
Take this shade and build up the outer crease and start to bring that color down just a bit onto the lower section of the lid towards the lashes. Also begin blending this color up slightly above the crease onto the brow bone. Be careful not to drag this too high but to start to create a deeper transition for that wing.
Now, take one more brush, a blending brush and dip it into your Soda Pop palette in the shade Cherry Cola. Blend this into and above the crease and work it further into the inner parts of the crease to build dimension and add shimmer.
Next up, take your NYX Jumbo white pencil and you are going to create a cut crease. The purpose of this is to create clean lines and then also to not muddy the colors. We want to create a strong, brilliant blue and there is likely fallout on your lid from the other colors we have used for this look.
Take the pencil and carefully follow the lid and under the crease, create as sharp and distinctive a line as possible. Take a flat brush into your Blue Raspberry in the Soda Pop palette. You want to pack that color onto the lid covering all of the white. Be patient, be careful and be precise with this part. You want the blue to stand out, you want it to be packed evenly and methodically onto the lid. Be sure you take it all the way to your tape as this will ensure that you are creating a sharp edge and a more distinct finished product.
With the blue finished on the lid, you can gently remove your tape and then we want to take a pointed detail brush back into the Blue Raspberry and gently buff it onto the lower lid along the lash line.
With a small angled brush dip it into Tonic in the Soda Pop palette and highlight your brow bone, just under your eyebrows and also on the inner corner.
To brighten the inner corner you want to dot this color along the inner corner of your eye to make the eye pop.
We’re almost there!
Take your Wet N Wild MegaSlim Skinny Tip Eyeliner in black and drag it along the lash line and wing it out along your sharp edge created by your tape. If you are less sure about creating a wing you can leave the tape on for this step and then do the lower lash line after you are finished with the liner.
Last, but not least, for this look we are using the Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara in black. I love this mascara for detailed lashes. As many of you know, my secret to lash extensions is not getting them.
If lash extensions are your thing, you do you but for me, I use this amazing Pronexa Hairgenics Lavish Lash Serum. I swear by this product. I use it every single day and I am always getting asked where I get my lashes done. These babies are all mine and I am sharing that lash secret with you because this is far more cost effective and time effective as I swipe it across my top lashes in the morning before I put makeup on and at night before bed.
Back to the mascara, this particular wand works well for separating lashes and creating a great, dramatic look without clumping and lumping.
Voila! We have a completed look. I loved this look, I got so many questions and compliments on this look at the wedding we attended and it was one of my favorite looks ever.
I hope that this comprehensive tutorial has helped you in creating a gorgeous but simple glam look that looks effortless and and on point if I do say so myself.
Stay tuned for more ideas and looks coming your way!
