How to: Carnival/Halloween Look

Hey Beauties,

A few weeks ago one of my best friends visited Venice and gave me a traditional souvenir; a Mask. It is really beautiful and it inspired me to create an eye look based upon it. I think it would be suitable for Halloween and Carnival, for those who do not want to apply exaggerated  makeup.


Step 1:- Apply concealer foundation and powder as needed. Check out how I apply foundation by visiting this link HERE.

Step 2:- apply a light purple color on the lid. I used Essence eye shadow in the color 'In the Clouds'. Simply tap color on to achieve a more opaque color. Leave the inner corner bare for the highlight color.



Step 3:- Apply a dark shimmering purple in the crease and also in the outer corner and blend it out. I applied MAC eye shadow in the color 'Beauty Marked'. Make sure to blend this color with the previous color on the lid for a gradient effect.



Step 4:- Next I applied a light purple shimmer in the inner corner mixed with a silver color for an intensified highlight effect. For the shimmering light purple I used BarryM Dazzle Dust in the color '59' and for the silver color I used the color 'Tinsel' from the Divine Limited Edition Sleek Palette.


Step 5:- I applied purple and fuchsia glitter in the center of my eyelid. I used the fuchsia as a pop of color since the look is quite dark. I used 'Festive' and 'Cranberry' from the Divine Limited Edition Sleek Palette.


Step 6:- Apply a black eyeliner and mascara. I used MUA eyeliner in the color 'Underground' and Catrice 'Fake It' Mascara. As and added touch I applied a silver glitter eyeliner on top of the black eyeliner, I used a Body Shop eyeliner 'Define & Sparkle'.



Step 7:- I applied also the same sequence of colors underneath my eyes and the silver color as a brow bone highlight.

That's the Finished eye look,
