For this look, I created a spotlight/halo effect on the eye using pink, purple and chocolate-plum shades from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette.  You can see my post on this palette here.

You can find more tips on how to create a spotlight/highlight/halo effect on the eyes in this post here.

You can find other combinations I have created using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette on the site here.

If you would like some look ideas using particular shades in the palette, or certain types of looks, let me know! I’m really enjoying playing about with it so stay tuned for more combination ideas!

Products Used

Base: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Crease: Love eyeshadow
Inner and Outer Lids: Drama eyeshadow
Middle Lid: Celestial eyeshadow
Deepen Crease: Volatile eyeshadow
Browbone Highlight: Base eyeshadow
Inner and Outer Lower Lashline: Drama eyeshadow
Middle Lower Lashline: Celestial eyeshadow

Steps

1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over the eyelid as a base.  You can either use your fingers or a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 242) for this step.

2. Take a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and sweep Love into the crease.

3. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Drama on the inner lid and the outer lid.  Keep the middle part of the lid free of colour as we will apply Celestial there in the next step.

4. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Celestial on to the middle of the lid.

5. Take a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and use Volatile to deepen the crease.

6. Take a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and use Base to highlight the browbone.

7.  Take a flat liner brush (e.g. Kiko Flat Definer Brush) and apply Drama to the inner and outer lower lashline.  Take the same brush and apply Celestial to the middle lower lashline.  Use the brush to blend the two shades together so there are no harsh lines.

8.  Apply mascara to the upper and lower lashes.
