This is a variation on the Sapphire Bronze Glow and Seafoam Green Bronze Glow posts and shows how using a different base eyeshadow colour can easily change up an existing look. This look uses a medium purple on the eyelid and creates a jewel effect on the eyes.

Here’s how to re-create this look:
Base: MAC Painterly Paint Pot (neutral light beige)
Upper and Lower Lashlines: Urban Decay Lucky (coppery-bronze eyeliner with slight shimmer)
Lid: MAC Noir Plum eyeshadow (shimmery medium jewel purple)
Crease: MAC Aquavert eyeshadow (pale shimmery aqua)
Crease: MAC Strike a Pose eyeshadow (medium shimmery teal)
Highlight: MAC Brule eyeshadow (light matte beige) + MAC Naked Lunch (satin pinky-beige)
Lower Lashline: MAC Purple Noir eyeshadow (shimmery medium jewel purple)
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. Apply Lucky eyeliner to your upper and lower lashlines.
3. Apply Noir Plum on to the eyelid using a gentle patting motion (e.g. MAC 239).
4. Use Aquavert lightly in the crease of the eye to blend out the edges of Noir Plum (e.g. MAC 217).
5. Apply Strike a Pose in the crease to add some extra definition to the eye.
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Brule, followed by Naked Lunch, on to the browbone to highlight.
7.Using an pencil brush (e.g .MAC 219) apply Green Goddessto the lower lashline, just below the Lucky eyeliner.
8. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
