If you were a little wary of purple eye makeup—#tbh it can look like a bad 80’s hangover—MyGlamm’s Global Makeup Director, Daniel Bauer, is here to change your mind. Using Manish Malhotra Haute Couture Makeup, the celebrity favourite makeup artist, creates a soft and pretty look that’s still eye-catching.
“It’s a day look, transforming into a night look, it’s in-between,” Bauer describes.
To start, add a little glow to your base. Dot and blend a creamy highlighter on your cheekbones to give the look a radiant, fresh feel.
#ProHack: Use your fingers to blend the highlighter so that it melds seamlessly with your foundation.
On the lids, apply a metallic brown, layered with a metallic purple eyeshadow. Apply the shadows with a wet brush to really make the pigments pop.
Brighten the inner corners of your eyes with a little bit of champagne. Blend it upwards into the brown shadow in your crease.
Using the same champagne shadow, on the edge of a flat brush, and stamp it along the edge of your upper lash line, creating a faux eyeliner effect.
To define the lower lash line, softly brush on a matte taupe shadow from the outer corners, blending gently in with the champagne shadow in the inner corners.
On the lips Bauer used English Rose from Manish Malhotra Haute Couture Makeup, because “it gives you a pinkish cool undertone, and just the right amount of intensity for this look.
Add the finishing touch with a tiny bit gold lipgloss in the centre to give it a dose of glam.
