TUTORIAL: Warm Gold & Plum Eyes ft. Morphe 35W Palette

Today’s post is going to be an eye tutorial featuring the Morphe 35W palette, which I just recently got and have been playing around with a little! I really loved the way this turned out and had so much fun creating it for you guys! I went for a warm gold and plum eye. If you want to see how I put this together, then keep reading!

First, I applied my normal foundation routine, and then primed the lids with Urban Decay primer potion, just to give the eyeshadow a base and to enhance the color pay off.

The first shadow I went in with is the last shadow on the top row all the way on the right, which is a sandy gold.  It has a lot of shimmer so I applied this to the inner third of my eye lid, and then underneath my brow bone to highlight.  I applied it using an Urban Decay flat shading brush.

Next I went in with my transition shade, which was the third shadow in from the left in the second row. I would describe this color as a matte camel brown. It was the perfect transition shade. I used wind shield wiper motions and applied this in the crease, bringing it up a little higher.  I used an Ecotools blending brush to apply the shade.

I then decided to darken up the crease, especially on the outer two thirds of my eye, by applying this matte chocolate brown shade. I really liked the definition it gave and it amplified the look. This shade was the second in on the bottom row from the left. For this shade, I used a Sephora blending brush and applied it to the outer two thirds of my crease using the same windshield wiper motions.

*P.S. – Sorry these photos are a little out of focus! I had to use my iPhone because my Canon is currently out of commission.  Hopefully, I will get that all straightened out soon enough!

This is the point in the look where I felt like I really needed to add a pop of color, otherwise it was going to be a very neutral look, which wasn’t the plan I had in mind.  I was really drawn to this grape taffy shade that was the fourth shade in from the left in the third row.  I decided to apply this shade with a flat shading brush from Lottie London to the outer half of my lid.  I really love the gold reflect in this shade, because it complemented the gold in the inner corner of my eye.

Here is the last step for eyeshadow! I took a darker purple shade and applied it to the other V of my eyelid.  This shade is the last shade on the right in the second to last row of the palette.  I used a Sephora blending brush to apply this color. I tried to use a light hand so it wouldn’t be so harsh.

Finally, I applied my favorite mascara, tight line eyeliner, and felt tip top eyeliner to complete the look. I’ve been loving this combination of the Benefit Roller Lash, Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Smoke, and the Skone Cosmetics Tattoo Liner in Jet Black. Use whatever products work best for you!

The look is finally complete! I love how it turned out. Its subtle, but has a little pop of color from the purple. I hope you enjoyed this look and let me know in the comments if you try it!
