I couldn’t wait to try out Rise Up from the the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette and came up with this bold blue and pink combination. I love the contrast of pink and blue on the lid and the shades also blended together to create a purplish effect in the crease.

1. Apply Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Sweep SF into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Rise Up on to the lids.
4. Pat Gilbert on the outer lid using a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239). Take the eyeshadow into a slight ‘v’ shape to add extra shape to the eyes.
5. Gently pat 1978 on to the inner corners of the eyes. This step adds some brightness to the eyes. I find this shade works better as an eyeshadow topper on me, as it is quite sheer.
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Milk on to the browbone to highlight. I also topped Milk with some MAC Blanc Type as I felt I needed more of a white-beige to highlight.
7. Take an eyeliner brush (e.g. MAC 266) and gently apply Rise Up along the lower lashline. Use the same brush to add a little of 1978 to the inner lower lashline.
8. Apply your face, cheek and lip products to finish off the look (suggestions given above in the ‘Products’ section).
9. Apply plenty of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
