Berry Sunrise Eyes are all about a gradual, transient shading of color on your eyelids in an unexpected color. Using fuchsia on the inner corners to create definition, we finish this look off with a dark purple in the crease and outer corners. To see how to get this look and see more photographs,
For this look, I used my Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette. Below, is a circled map of the colors I used for this look:
First, sweep the fuchsia shade (circled in green) into the inner corner of your eyes. Make sure to get this shade nice and dramatic, even wetting the color first, to make the shade more intense.
Second, apply the medium pastel purple shade (circled in pink) over your entire eyelid, up to the crease. This shade is our middle color for a beautiful gradient effect.
Third, mix together the dark purple and black (circled in blue), applying just a small amount of black to your brush to darken the purple. Blend this into your crease and the outer corners of your eyes, viewing the area as a “sideways V” shape. Blend the colors out well.
Fourth, curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara. You may also apply a brow highlight at this time. Because the look above is all shimmer, I used a matte white eyeshadow for a brow highlight, MAC’s “Gesso,” eyeshadow.
Viola! Berry sunrise eyes.
For my lips, I applied MAC’s Viva Glam V lipstick, which is a neutral fawn color. I applied MAC Funtabulous Dazzleglass over top of it, bringing a vivid purple shimmer in, to tie in the eyes.
Remember that the Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette is simply what I used for this look, and any similar shades you own in your makeup collection can easily be substituted and used to create this look. The Coastal Scents palette retails for $19.95, and can be purchased by clicking this link.
