Welcome back to ibeautytalk lovely people!
Hope you’re all doing wonderfully! ❤️
It’s definitely big fat sweater weather here in the North of England! My favourite time of the year! All cosy on the sofa with a cuppa! ☕️
I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do an eyeshadow tutorial inspired by berry/purple shades just for fun! It brings a lovely pop of colour to the eyes (especially if your a brown eyed gal!)
I’ve put up a collage above piecing together the whole look for those of you who want to get straight to the point! For those of you who want to know exactly how to achieve this look, keep reading!! 😊
For this berry inspired eyeshadow, I used the BH Cosmetics Day and Night Palette. This is a gorgeous palette consisting of 60 versatile shades (not all of them are super pigmented but it’s definitely a fab palette for the price!)
The left side of this palette has some beautiful pastel shades perfect for daytime and the right side has some sexy dark shades for the evening! I prefer the ‘night’ side because I love me a good smokey eye!
So, the first colour I took was from the left side (first colour of the third row). It’s a lovely mauvey brown shade perfect for my transition shade with which to blend the rest of the colours out.
I tossed it into the crease with a big fat fluffy brush (you don’t have to be too neat).
I then took the brown shade from the right side of the palette (last row, second shade) and deepened up my crease a but more with a slightly thinner blending brush. This will create a fabulous gradient effect. Remember to keep blending!
I then took the tiniest amount of black mixed with the red shade and focused this mainly on the outer corner of my eye, bringing it slightly into the crease again with a more precise brush.
Don’t worry if it looks a bit messy. We’re going to clean it up at the end!
I then took more black and focused it right at the outer corner, blending it out with small circular motions with a blending brush.
Next, I took a light shimmery purple colour (not the most pigmented colour so forgive the quality) and tapped it on to my lid. I also added a highlight colour right in the inner corner of my eye to give an extra pop! To clean up at the edges, take a wet wipe or some makeup remover on a q tip and neaten the edges and blend it once more so you don’t have any harsh lines.
You can now go ahead and add your eyeliner and mascara (whatever style you wish, wings or no wings!) and a browbone highlight to give an extra dimension.
And there we are! A lovely purple, berry undertoned eyeshadow look with some lovely red undertones!
If you would like me to a post explaining exactly where to place eyeshadows and how to do this for different eye shapes please let me know!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and let me know if you decide to recreate this!
Hope you have a wonderful day lovelies!
