Hi guys, so today I thought I’d try something a little bit different. Seeing as were in lock down, I thought what better time to play with more daring eye-shadows that I may have been to scared to explore previously. Today i’ve been exploring with the deeper, more purple shades from the Naked Cherry Palette. I’m both surprised and happy with how much I liked this look, so I really hope you guys like it too. Lets get started.
- Firstly, I took the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade Fair, and put it all over my eyelid, right up to the brow bone. I also put some underneath my eye to cover my dark circles, before blending it in. However, if you don’t have this concealer that’s okay, you can use any that you may have at hand.
2. Next, I took the shade ‘Hot Spot’ and dusted that all over where I just put the concealer to set it. I then took some sticky tape and stuck it down in the corner of my eyes, going up to the ends of my eyebrows – this will be important later on. However, remember to stick it on and peel it off the back of your hand first, to remove some of the stickiness first. This will prevent it tugging at your eye.
3. Using the crease brush included in the palette, I took the shade ‘Caution’ and blended it into my crease, to use as a transition colour. I then went over this shade with the colours ‘bang bang’ and ‘feelz.’ remembering to take my time to blend. Taking the time to blend each layer really does help the end outcome.
4 Next, I took the shades ‘Bing’ and ‘Devilish’ on the crease, and outer corners but slightly below the colours we just applied. Don’t worry if this looks a little messy now, this is what the tape is for! So long as its blended, your all good.
5. Our last matte shade for this look is ”Privacy.” Take a teeny, tiny dab ( be careful, its super pigmented) and put this in your inner corner, blending it well. Once this is finished, you can take the shade ” Caution” and ever so lightly blend the edges of the crease so it all blends in beautifully.
6. Now, taking the shade ”Young love” apply this onto the lid with your ring finger. I personally like the effect, but if you want it more intense you can pic up the shadow then apply setting spray to your finger, before patting it into the eyelid.
7. This part is where the tape comes in. Get your favourite black eyeliner ( I used the Super Cat Eyeliner by Soap and Glory.) and draw a thin line on your lash line, starting from the middle. Then, you decide where the tip of your wing will be (on the tape) and draw a line down to the centre of your eyelid, so the two lines match up. Fill in the wing and draw your thin line closer to the inner corner of your eye. ( If youre still unsure, feel free to use my picture as a visual aid. However, you can always do your own wing without tape if you like – This is just my own personal preference.)
8. Finally, peal away the tape slowly and carefully. You should finish with a neat, sharp line where the eyeliner and eye shadow have ended. To finish, take the shades ” feels” and ”juicy” and apply them close to your bottom lashes, and apply black mascara. I used the Maybelline Bambi Eyes Mascara for this.
Here’s my finished look
