After last time's tutorial about a neutral look I was itching to do something colourful again! I still wanted it to be pretty and wearable, although the opinions about what is and isn't wearable will surely differ. This time we're creating a look with a warm/cold contrast. I chose to combine a shimmering lavender that had a blue shift with a warm brown. I really liked the effect and because it has both warm and cool undertones it'll look good on a lot of skintones as well!
I know that this purple colour might be a bit hard to come by, so feel free to use your own version instead. This look will be lovely with a more pinkish eyeshadow, magenta, straight up purple or even blue! Just make sure that the colour isn't too dark and is nice and shimmery, then the effect should be similar.
Step 1: Primer
Step 2: White Base
Step 3: Apply Base Colour
With a flat brush load up your base colour and gently pat it on. Patting is the best way to release a lot of product. You might not get an opaque amount on your lids in one go, so repeat this step as often as you need.
Step 4: Warm it up with Rose Gold
With a dense little eyeshadow brush, grab a rose-gold eyeshadow and apply it in the area shown above. We do this to make the look a little bit warmer and to make the gradient to brown a lot easier. Don't worry about blending yet, we'll do that in the next step.
Step 5: Blend!
Step 6: Apply Brown Colour
With the same dense brush we used earlier, grab a medium brown (make sure it's a warm brown!) and apply it in the areas shown in the diagram. Keep applying until you reach the desired intensity.
Step 7: Blend!
Apply Eyeliner And Mascara
This look is pretty spiffy on its own, but I love combining it with a warm brown eyeliner and mascara. The black versions look pretty great too however.
