I’m going a little out of order with my summer series. Instead of doing all of one fruit inspiration, like I did with just peachy, I’m going to upload out if order.
A little confession, I film a lot of my videos a week in advance. I work like 4 jobs and am crazy busy.
I filmed this grape inspired look on Friday and I had a lot of fun putting colours together. As usual I used my 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette 2nd Edition. They have so many beautiful and vibrant colours. I tend to go natural looking but with purple I wanted to go a bit more dramatic. Out of all the colours I decided to do these colours, seen swatched on my hand
Now that I have the colours I need to figure out my base. I’m all out of primer but I’ve got a few alternatives. I wanted to have a nice base to make the colours stand out and bring out their vibrancy.
I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in both black bean and milk then the third is a purple cream shadow by Mark.
I decided to use BOTH of the NYX pencils as my base. I really like the consistency and wearability they provide. I use the milk one a lot and am always pleased. I decided to use black bean on my lid and milk on the brow bone to the edge of the black.
Since this look is dark I opted out of liner and opted in for falsies. Putting on the falsies did not make the final edit of the video because I epically failed and had to do them twice. Usually I’m pretty good at applying them but that day was not my day.
Of course, with a dramatic eye, I went more neutral and subdued with the lips and cheeks. I went with my go to matte Mark blush in Cameo and a nice pinky lip.
This look would be great for a special night out or for a fun night event.
Here is the video on exactly how to do it
