Yesterday, I showed you the PUR DreamWorks Trolls Eyeshadow Palette in a post and swatched each shade for you (click here to view). As always, I like to show you what you can do with an eyeshadow palette and how it actually wears on the eyes. There was one shade in particular that I knew I wanted to use, which was the ice-purple duo-chrome shade. It looks white in the pan but it’s actually a light lavender that flashes violet based on the angle and lighting. I’ve got the full tutorial inside!
Isn’t that duo-chrome shade absolutely stunning? What is even more spectacular about it is how different this one shade can look depending on how much you blend it out.
HOW TO GET THE MAKEUP LOOK:
- Use Shade 1 as a base color on your eyes. More and more lately, I’ve been using a light, neutral shade to cover my entire eyelid, crease, and brow-bone area before starting a makeup look. I feel that it helps everything else blend better since you’re starting with a neutral, clean, even surface.
- With a fluffy blending brush, apply Shade 2 to the crease of your eye and start blending upward with windshield wiper motions. Since these are very pigmented, start with just a small amount of eyeshadow and build it up as you go along. As you layer, you can use light circular motions to blend this upward, stopping below the brow-bone.
- Use Shade 2 along your entire lower lash-line.
- Using the same fluffy blending brush, go in with a tiny amount of Shade 3 and apply it to the outer corner of your eyelid and crease. This will create a smoky eye effect. Again, start with a small amount and build as you go. I also smudged this along the outer corner of my lower lashes to connect everything.
- Grab a flat eyeshadow brush and wet it with setting spray or water. Apply Shade 4 with that dampened brush to your entire eyelid, stopping at the crease and just before the darkened outer corner. Turn your eyeshadow brush over to the clean side and blend this lid shade with the dark outer corner until you have a seamless look.
- Apply Shade 4 with a dry pencil brush into the inner corners of your eyes. You will notice that it will look lighter and more white when applied dry. This gives the illusion of two separate eyeshadow shades when you’ve actually only used one.
- Shade 5 is your brow-bone shade, used to blend out the purple crease and subtly highlight that area.
Where you go from here is completely your own preference. I applied a dark black eyeliner on my lower water-line and also lightly on my upper lash-line and smudged it out. I used Ardency Inn Modster Eyeliner in “Black” which is super rich and creamy.
The finished eye look is a rich purple smoky eye with a unique duo-chrome eyelid shade. The camera doesn’t do this shade justice, even though you can see the reflects it gives off. I would also use this shade in the palette as a highlighter on my cheekbones to give off a subtle lavender sheen.
On my lips, I used my Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lipstick in “Fawn Over Me.” I’ve been absolutely enamored with the formula and shade. It’s my go-to everyday lip color now.
