Colour Crush

Colours like blue and purple have been splashed all around on the fashion runways. Wear the two beloved shades on our eyes in this sweater-weather. Inspiration: Chasing away the blues Play up your eyes with shimmery shades of purple and blue with matte skin and soft pink lips.  

Recreate this pretty look in 6 easy steps:

Step 1:
After cleansing and moisturising the face, prep the skin with Tinted Perfection Base primer. Create a medium coverage base using foundation from the Total Makeover FF Cream palette. Blend it evenly across the face with a beauty blender and set the base with Glow to Glamour matte fixing powder.

Step 2:
Use a hint of bronzer from the Chisel It Game Face palette to add warmth to the face; swipe along the jawline, across the hollows of the cheeks, edge of the forehead and temples. Next, apply blush in circular motions on the cheeks for a flush of colour. Use highlighter on the higher planes of the face like tops of the cheekbones, middle of the forehead, bridge of the nose and chin.

Step 3:
Tight line the eyes using Jet Set Eyes black kajal. Start by applying the bright blue All Eye Need eyeshadow in Dare to Wear to cover half the lid and the lower lash line. Diffuse with a shader brush gently.

Step 4:
Next, use the bright purple All Eye Need eyeshadow in Velvette over the eye crease, blending it into the blue shadow. Repeat on the lower lash line and diffuse with a shader brush.

Step 5:
Use Wheelie Precision Eyeliner to create a thin eyeliner along the upper lash line. Highlight the inner corners of the eyes and brow bone using the champagne eyeshadow Powder Magic Eyeshadow Stick in Goldmine. Fill in the brows with Stay Defined HD brow powder and apply a few coats of Threesome Mascara on the upper and lower eyelashes.

Step 6:
Moisturise the lips and swipe on a nude pink matte lipstick like the Butterlicious Shea Butter Matte Lipstick in Rose. Brush a little highlighter on the Cupid’s bow.
