This look combines pink, purple and blue to create a bright, yet wearable, colourful eye. Applying a bright blue to the outer v provides an interesting ‘pop’ of colour alongside the pink and purple shades. You could use a dark purple in the outer v (in place of the blue) if you would prefer a more subtle look. Here’s how to re-create this look:

Base: MAC Painterly Paint Pot (neutral light beige)
Lid: MAC Da Bling eyeshadow (medium warm satin pink)
Crease: MAC Purple Haze eyeshadow (medium matte cool purple)
Outer v: MAC Blue Candy eyeshadow (medium bright matte candy blue)
Highlight: MAC Naked Lunch eyeshadow (pale shimmery pink-nude)
Lower Lashline: MAC Purple Haze eyeshadow (as above)
1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot over the lid as a base. You can use your fingers or a synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242) for applying the paint pot.
2. Pat Da Bling onto the lid, using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).
3. Apply Purple Haze in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
4. Take a pencil brush (e.g. pointed end of Bare Minerals Precision Eye Brush; MAC 219) and apply Blue Candy to the outer v of the eye. Applying a bright blue to this area provides an interesting ‘pop’ of colour alongside the pink and purple shades.
5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Naked Lunch on to the browbone to highlight. Take this down into the inner corner as well to brighten the eye.
6. Take an angled eye liner brush (e.g. MAC 266) and apply Purple Haze along the lower lashline.
7. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
