MAKEUP TUTORIAL: Amethyst Smokes - Winter Edition

Winter is here!!!! Yes, its that time of year again in New Zealand. Ladies, time to dig out the leggings and scarves in time for the colder weather. Also... sort out the perfect winter make up colours to go with your perfect winter outfits. Purple is in this winter so here is a step by step guide to try out! 

 1. Start with clean and moisturized skin already prepped with your foundation. Apply base to eyelids (usually a white matte shadow) this will prevent the eye shadow creasing

2. Apply lighter shadow toward the inner of eye and blend upward and outward across half your eyelid.

3. Apply darker shadow across the other outer half of the eyelid and again blend upward and outward.

4. Apply a black shadow to the outer corners of the eyelid and blend upward toward brow bone. Then blend along crease line toward the inner eye.

5. For a more dramatic look, apply another layer of black shadow to the eye following the same steps as above. Apply as many as you like for your desired look.

6. Finally, apply mascara to eyelashes. Highlighter to brow bone. And lightly pencil in eyebrows to define you face.

  1. Beauiful! I need to get better at doing eye makeup. I have a formula I use and I never seem to venture in other directions so my makeup looks exactly the same every day. Lame.

    1. Why thank you! To be perfectly honest, I just love playing with colour! But I know where you are coming from, my signature everyday makeup is brown, brown and more brown! To mix your one up, you could consider adding more mascara or a thicker line of eye liner to make your eyes REALLY stand out! :)
