If you follow my blog, you might know that a while back I shared Summer 2015 makeup trends, in which I mentioned that Lilac eyeshadows are big this spring and summer. I’m a neutral eyeshadow kinda girl but I love to experiment every now and then. Even though I used a very different technique and a lilac eyeshadow for this look, it’s still pretty wearable. I think it will look perfect on people with small or hooded eyes especially. This makeup technique really opens up the eyes and also creates an illusion of bigger, elongated eyes. Feel free to switch the lilac eyeshadow with any other color, and follow the technique it will still look just as good.
Step # 1
I used the eyeshadow called “Maple” from Sleek Matte eyeshadow palette and applied it above the crease.
I then went in with “paper bag” eyeshadow and created a soft cut-crease and subtle cat eye.
On the lids I applied a pastel shimmery lilac eyeshadow from Sephora Cube.
Created an inverted wing in the inner corners of the lower lash line with Maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner.
Step # 5
Then I smudged the lower lash line with the “paper bag” eyeshadow, applied a catrice nude pencil “made to stay” in the water liner, and few coats of L’Oreal false lash flutter mascara.
On my lips I wore Velvet teddy by Mac.
I love how different but wearable this look is. If you try it out don’t forget to share your pictures with me on Instagram or Facebook page.
