I posted this look last week on my Facebook page and the owner of Beauty From The Earth quickly reposted it to the BFTE fan page ( I am so flattered!!!). On both pages the look got quite a few comments and requests for a tutorial. My looks are always spur of the moment. Rarely are they planned out so I tried to recreate this the best I could! I also took all the pictures using flash so you could really see wear to apply the colors so sorry it is a bit harsh. Hope you enjoy!
The pigments used for this look are all available at
Here is what you will need to recreate this look.
- Fluffy Blending Brush ( I use MAC #222)
- Eyeshadow Brush ( I use elf eyeshadow brush)
- Eye primer ( I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
- Eyeshadow Base ( I use NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk)
- Concealer ( I normally use elf concealer stick)
- Purple Pigment - Kastra by Beauty From The Earths Pro Color Line
- Pink Pigment - Zaniah by Beauty From The Earths Pro Color Line
- Teal Pigment - Meissa by Beauty From The Earths Pro Color Line
- Hot Pink Pigment - Lava Momma by Beauty From The Earth
- Neutral skin toned pigment or shadow - Skimp by Urban Decay
- Mascara ( I used Full N Soft by Maybelline
- Liquid Eyeliner ( I use Jordana Fabuliner)
- Apply concealer just below the eyebrow onto the brow bone Apply your eye primer from lid to brow and blend the concealer in. Then apply your base as shown in the picture. Lightly blend out the edges of the base shape using your ring finger.
2. Take your eyeshadow brush and get a generous amount of Kastra. Our goal is to really pack the color on so it opaque. Pat, DO NOT RUB, Kastra into the inner eye area and about a third of the way across your lid taking care not to apply above the crease.
3. Take the same brush and get a generous amount of Zaniah. Using the same brush with the previous color residue on it helps with the blending. Pat it on the middle third of your eye overlapping into Kastra. Take care not to apply above the crease.
Here is what your eye should look like now.
4. Take the same brush and apply a generous amount Meissa to the outer third of your eye and bring it over slightly into the crease. Remember, PAT do not rub. Do not overlap Meissa on Zaniah.
5. Now grab your fluffy brush. Dip lightly into Kastra and tap ALL excess pigment off the brush. Using quick back and forth motions very light apply Kastra to the inner eye over where you originally applied it in step 1. Slightly overlap into Zaniah. Also blend out the top edge and bring it up slightly as shown in the picture below. Do this until you are happy with the blend between the two colors.
6. Using the same fluffy brush, dip lightly into Zaniah and tap ALL excess pigment off the brush. Using quick back and forth motions very light apply Zaniah to the middle of the eyelid over where you originally applied it in step 2. Slightly overlap into Zaniah back into Kastra blending towards the inner eye. Also blend outwards into Meissa. Do this until you are happy with the blend between the two colors.
Here is what your eye should look like now.
7. Take the same fluffy brush and dip into Meissa. Tap off ALL excess pigment. Starting at the outside edge blend Meissa inward towards Zaniah blending the line between the two colors. Lightly blend the outer edge and top edge of Meissa and brig the color up into the crease and inward all the way through the crease to your inner eye. Keep doing this until you are happy with the blend.
I was not particularly happy with my inner eye so I added more Kastra with the fluffy
brush and blended it in. If you are happy with your look then skip this step.
8. Take your fluffy brush and Lava Momma ( I have the pressed version, loose works just as well). Get a small amount on the end of your brush and apply to the top edge of the shadow. Blend by lightly moving your brush back and forth across the entire top edge of the look, from the outer to the inner. Keep blending until you have a nice purplish/pink hue on the top edge.
Here is what your eye should look like at this point.
9. Now take your fluffy brush and using a tissue or cloth brush off all the pigment that has built up. Next using your neutral shade apply it all over the brow bone and LIGHTLY over the top edge of the shadow and around the outer edge as well. This helps really soften and blend the look.
10. Apply your liquid or whatever liner you prefer and add mascara.
and you are done!
As you can see it isn't an exact match for the original look but it is pretty good!
