eyelook: gradient blue purple

I already have a gradient blue look...as well as gradient purple, but i have not yet combined blue & purple. It's actually a good combination since they almost belong in the same family color so it's easy to combine the two.

For those who are having a hard time blending colors, this is an easy way to have a well-blended, gradient look without having to go to make-up school just to learn the basics of it. I was once at a loss on how to achieve that gradient look & i even considered going to make-up school just to achieve it! LOL I'm serious though!

I have done a couple of gradient looks already & if you are quite familiar with how i do it, i use 4 colors which makes blending the colors really easy. The key, of course, is to have a good blending brush. If you are on a budget then just get the ELF blending brush. I love it! I have a couple of blending brush but ELF is the one that i reach whenever i do my eye make-up. I actually have 3 of those!



Let's let the pictures do the talking now...

These are the colors that i use. If you don't have the 88 palette just pick any colors that are almost the same with these...


Line them up like how i did. By the way, make sure that you got a good primer underneath & a sticky base so that your eyeshadow will really stick. Apply the colors in a patting motion so that you will be able to pack more colors on your lid.

Blend colors 1 & 2 first. It's easier to work with the lighter colors first. If you feel that you don't have enough colors to work with, then feel free to dip your brush to get more color. Click the pic if you want to see it better.


Then blend 3 & 4 together. At this stage, you can slowly bring the purple at the top part of the lid so that the top part of the blue has a hint of purple on it.


 Now's the time to blend the 2 colors together...


After a couple of blending motion, you'll be able to have this look.


Believe me when i say that this tutorial is dummy-friendly. I am a living proof that even beginner's like me can achieve a well-blended look! You might be needing more colors than necessary but it is worth it!

So, of course, you would have to bring the colors down on your lower lash area... Apply the colors how the way you did it at the lid area. A good angled brush will do the trick!



Then get rid of all the fall-outs & excess colors that you have to polish off the look!

Now, this is the hardest part of all... eye-lining! I'm not that good in achieving an equal-looking eyeliner, but with practice im sure you'll be able to get the hang of it.


Did you notice how obvious the blue color at the root of my lashes are on the 1st picture? When you tight-line, make sure that after you apply it on your upper water line you also do feathery strokes going upwards like the 2nd picture so that you'll be able to fill the space where your lashes grow. Doing so will help make your eye lining perfect!

This is how it looks like after all the trouble of waterlining. It would look full & well-defined after mascara application. Oops, i didn't line my lower lash line though.


Since I don't have enough time when i did this tutorial so i did just one eye..hehe

Finish the look with your favorite lipstick. Since this is not really a dark smokey look so you can get away with using pinks & corals!


 Whew~!
2nd make-up post!

Hope y'all have a good day!
Jaa ne~!
