If you’ve seen my swatches of the Sephora + PANTONE Facets of Marsala Eye Palette, you know just how magnificent the shades and pigmentation are. I decided to put together a makeup look and tutorial for you, complete with a numbered guide using the palette. Whether you own the palette or plan on purchasing it, you can easily follow along with my tutorial and recreate this look.
HOW TO GET THIS EYE MAKEUP:
- Apply Shade 1 over your entire eyelid after using an eye primer. This shade just barely shows up on my eyelids, but I like to use it because it helps me blend out all of the other shades. Sometimes after applying eye primer, you can get spotty eyeshadow application, especially in your crease, so I like to apply a neutral shade there first so everything on the eye blends well.
- Apply Shade 2 into the crease and extend it upward toward your brow-bone generously. This is our transition “peekaboo” shade that will pop out.
- Apply Shade 3 into the socket of your eye ONLY, just where your eye creases when you are looking straight into a mirror. Focus fire this shade several times into the crease, building it up to a gorgeous burgundy marsala shade with plenty of definition.
- Apply Shade 4 to the outer-third of your crease and onto the outer-third of your eyelid, making the entire eyelid look smokey. I went back about 3 times with this shade, slowly building it up and blending it well.
- Apply Shade 5 to your entire lower lash-line. Use Shade 4 on the outer-third of your lower lash-line and connect it to where you applied it on the outer-third of your eye in Step #4.
- Using a wet brush, pat Shade 6 over your entire eyelid, stopping before the crease. Make this shade even more intense in the inner corners of your eyes.
- Apply Shade 7 to your brow-bone to blend Shade 2 out well and highlight your brow area.
- Apply black eyeliner (I used Urban Decay’s Perversion) to your lower waterline and tight-line your upper lashes.
- Curl your lashes and apply mascara. Apply false lashes (I used MUA Glamorous Lashes).
This is going to look good on your eyes no matter what eye color you have. It brings out blue and green eyes because the shades are opposite on the color wheel. It brings out the gold tones in hazel and brown eyes because of the warmth in the eyeshadow. This is one of my favorite types of looks to wear on a regular basis (minus the falsies), because it’s extremely flattering.
I kept my face luminous using Revlon’s new Airbrush Foundation. I contoured my cheekbones and used bronzer on my face to add even more warmth. I kept the lips neutral and nude so that the eyes really stood out.
Notice how much this eye look warms up my skin tone, brings out my eyes and hair color, and overall just really looks like a warm, brazen sunset on the eyes. It’s one of my favorite eye looks ever.
