For this look, I combined bright candy pink, bluish-purple and blackberry toned eyeshadows to create a fun, colourful effect on the eyes. Using an eyeshadow which contrasts slightly on the inner part of the lid adds a fun ‘pop’ to the look.
Here’s how to re-create this look:

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original (clear)
Crease: MAC Blackberry eyeshadow (medium matte blackberry)
Lid: Urban Decay Dive Bar eyeshadow (medium satin bluish-purple) (click to read more on this product)
Inner Lid: MAC Silly eyeshadow (matte light candy pink)
Highlight: MAC Creamy Bisque eyeshadow (light satin cream)
Lower Lashline: Urban Decay Divebar eyeshadow + MAC Silly eyeshadow (as above)
1. Apply Primer Potion over the lid as a base. You can use your fingers or a synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242) for applying the primer.
2. Apply Blackberry in the crease of the eye with a crease/blender brush using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Pat Dive Bar onto the lid, using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239).
4. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239; MAC 272) and apply Silly to the inner part of the lid.
5. 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. Take this down into the inner corner as well to brighten the eye.
6. Take an angled eye liner brush (e.g. MAC 219) and apply Dive Bar along the middle-outer part of the lower lashline. Take the same brush and apply Silly to the inner part of the lower lashline. This step mirrors the application on the upper lid and helps to further shape the eye. I used a pencil brush (MAC 219) as I wanted to create a soft, smudgy effect along the lower lashline. You can use an angled eyeliner brush (e.g. MAC 266) if you want a more defined lower lashline.
7. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
