Some of you may be missing summer but I couldn’t be happier that Fall has made its way to Ohio! The first chilly day we had, I grabbed my Lorac PRO Palette 2 and got to work on this Fall inspired purple smokey eye tutorial.
I always begin by applying an eye shadow primer. Today I’m using the Lorac Behind The Scenes primer that came with the Lorac PRO Palette 2. Then, using a large blending brush, I’m going to apply Nectar (light peach matte) all over, starting with my lid and ending a little below my brow bone. Blend this out really well.
Next, grab a black eyeliner pencil. Try to use one that is easy to smudge out. Apply this all the way across your lash line. This doesn’t need to be perfect so just strive for mediocrity here.
Now I’m going to dip my smudge brush into just a tiny bit of Cocoa (dark brown shimmer) and use this to smudge out my eyeliner. You basically just want to run your brush back and forth across your lash line until the eyeliner is nice and soft. Depending on what eyeliner you used, it may take a while.
Then I’m going to use a flat eye shadow brush to apply Plum (dark matte purple) over my entire lid.
Gently blend out the purple, focusing on the edges.
Next I’m going to apply Chrome (frosted taupe) in my crease, taking it all the way from the outer corner to the inner corner and gently blending it upwards a little.
To complete this eye shadow look, I’m going to take a pencil brush and go all the way across my lower lash line with Plum (dark matte purple), making sure to connect my lower lash line with the shadow on my lid.
Finish up the look by applying mascara or falsies and lining your waterline, if that’s your thing. I’m using a NYX eyeliner pencil in Jewel and Ardell #206 lashes.
And now your purple smokey eye is all complete!
