For this look, I combined pink and taupe-charcoal eyeshadows with a blackish-purple liner to create a sophisticated berry eye. Applying eyeshadows after liner softens any harsh lines and helps everything to blend together nicely. I used the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette and the Urban Decay eyeliner in Delinquent but you can use any other brands with similar shades.
Here’s how to re-create this look:
Base: MAC Paint Pot in Girl Friendly (matte medium neutral rose pink)
Upper and Lower Lashlines: Urban Decay Delinquent Eyeliner (black with purple sparkles)
Crease: Urban Decay Derailed eyeshadow (deep satin taupe-charcoal)
Lid: Urban Decay Coax eyeshadow (medium shimmery metallic pink)
Inner Corners: Urban Decay Dope eyeshadow (light satin beige-peach)
Highlight: MAC Creamy Bisque eyeshadow (light satin cream)
Black mascara (upper and lower lashes)
1. Apply Girl Friendly all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Use Delinquent eyeliner to line your upper and lower lashlines. The lines do not have to be perfect as the eyeshadow applied on the lid in stage 4 will help soften any edges.
3. Sweep Derailed into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217). Take a little of Derailed into the outer lid as well to help shape the eye.
4. Apply Coax on to the eyelid using a gentle patting motion (e.g. MAC 239). Applying the lid colour over the liner helps to soften the lines and also brings out the purple tones in Delinquent.
5. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Dope eyeshadow into the inner corners of the eye. This step helps to brighten and add some ‘lightness’to the eye.
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Creamy Bisque on to the browbone to highlight and further blend out the edges of the crease colour.
7. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
