I haven’t done a tutorial in a while, so I thought this would be the perfect time to share a look I’ve been wearing recently. I really love experimenting with eyeshadows, and the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection has been inspiring some new looks for me! This particular one features some neutral golds, but adds a fun pop of coral pink, which is perfect for summer. If you haven’t read my review on the palette, be sure to check that out in the Is It Worth It? section of my blog!
The first thing I always do before any eyeshadow look is contour with a crease shade. For this specific look, I used the color Mugshot to define right in the eye socket under the brow bone. I used a Moda Pro Blending Brush to achieve this. The best technique for applying a crease shade is to lightly swipe it using back and forth strokes, like a windshield wiper.
The next step was to blend the crease shade into the under eye. As close to the lash as possible, I applied Mugshot with the same brush, to ensure that it was light. It’s still enough to see that the whole eye is cohesive from the lid to the under eye.
This is where you can start to get creative with how you want the look to be. I chose to use a bright, coral pink shade as my pop of color, but feel free to choose anything that blends well with warm gold. Using the shade Bomb Ass, I applied this under the lash line with an EcoTools Pencil Brush. You want it to mimic bottom eyeliner, so pack it as close as possible to your bottom lashes.
I then used an Urban Decay Flat Shader Brush to apply the same shade to the outer two thirds of my eye. This helps to balance the top and bottom of the eye, otherwise one part can look heavy compared to the other. The best way to achieve this step is to lightly pat the color onto the desired location, so you avoid fallout under the eye.
The last step is to use the same brush as the previous step to apply a gold shade to the center of the lid. I used On Camera and patted it directly in the center, then slightly dragging it into the center of the eye. The trick is to keep the most concentrated part of the shadow on the outer portion, so it fades to light when you move towards the inside of your eye
Just add some black eyeliner and mascara, and your ready to go! I included photos of what the eyes look like, and also listed the rest of the products I used for the day.
