Neutral Eye With a Purple Pop

Neutral Eye With Pop of Purple 2  Neutral Eye With Pop of Purple 3

The placement of purple in the outer lid adds an unexpected ‘pop’ of colour to an otherwise fairly neutral look. Here’s how to re-create this look:

Click on the following link to read my article on ‘Parts of the Eye’ for help on where to place eyeshadow colours.

Base: MAC Painterly Paint Pot
Lid: MAC Yogurt (pale matte pink)
Outer lid: MAC Vibrant Grape (bright candy purple)
Crease: MAC Cork (neutral medium brown)
Highlight/Inner Corner: MAC Shroom (satiny beige)
Upper Lashline: Black liquid eyeliner
Lower Lashline: MAC Cork (neutral medium brown)

1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Pat Yogurt on to the lid using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).
3. Apply Vibrant Grape to the outer lid of the eye using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239, MAC 272).
4. Apply Cork in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217( or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Shroom on to the browbone to highlight. Take this down into the inner corner as well to brighten the eye.
6. Take your black liquid eye liner and apply to the upper lashline.
7. Using an angled eye liner brush (e.g. MAC 266), apply Cork to the lower lashline. This steps adds a little extra definition to the lower lashes and helps to finish off the eye.
8. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

The finished look:
