Start with a neutral base

It's important to create a neutral base Before you start wear purple eye makeup. This will help your eyeshadow stay in place and prevent it from creasing. This will create a smooth canvas for your eyeshadow to shine. To start your makeup routine, you'll want to prime your face. Begin by applying a little bit of primer on the back of your hand, similar to your skin tone. Next, proceed with applying under-eye concealer. With a brush, apply the concealer to your under-eye area. You'll notice that a small amount of concealer can go a long way. Now, let's move on to priming your eyelids. Use an eye base for this step. Finally, lightly dust some translucent powder onto your lids to complete the process.

Apply a deep purple eyeshadow to the outer corner of your eye

Once you have your neutral base, it's time to start adding some color. Take a bold purple colour eyeshadow from DE’LANCI Purple Eyeshadow Palette and apply it to the outer corner of your eye, using a small eyeshadow brush. Blend it inwards towards the center of your eyelid, but don't go all the way to the inner corner. This will create a gradient effect of smokey eye, with the deepest color on the outer corner and a lighter shade towards the center. Let's proceed with winging out the transition. Start by outlining the crease and then draw the transition color towards the end of your brow, following a winged shape. Now, it's time to add the lid color. For this look, we'll be using the matte eyeshadow palette. Although it may appear shimmery due to swatching, it's actually a matte shade. If you enjoy purple shadows, you'll love this one. Begin by building up the winged shape of the eye shadow palette, and then proceed to fill it in. Apply basic purple shade. Take a bit more of the same shade. Blend out the edges. Achieve a seamless finish.

Blend a lighter purple or pink shade into the crease.

Now it's time to add the pink or lighter purple eye shadow to the center of the lid. The goal is to make the pink shade pop by having a purple base all over the lids. For this look, a pink pigment eyeshadow with reflective properties and a sheer texture are preferred. To ensure it adheres well, apply a small amount of the 24-hour extended eye base directly on top of the pigment in the center of the lid. Use a brush to gently pat it on, being careful not to remove any of the purple shadows. Take note of any fine lines or wrinkles and ensure your eyelid is stretched out to avoid any pigment settling. Next, apply the pigment to the center of the lid and softly blend it towards the inner and outer corners, creating a gradual transition. By stretching out your lid, you'll achieve better results.

Add a pop of shimmer to the center of your lid.

To enhance the impact of your purple eye shade, consider adding a touch of glitter eyeshadow to the center of your lid. Opt for a shimmery purple shade that will catch and reflect light beautifully. Using either your finger or a small brush, gently apply the shimmer shade to the center of your eyelid. This will create an eye-catching sparkle and elevate your look. Remember to blend it out slightly to ensure a seamless transition between the shimmer and matte shadows. For an extra brightening effect, you can also dab a bit of shimmer to the inner corner of your eye, opening up and illuminating the area. These shimmering accents will add dimension and allure to your purple-eye look.

Finish with eyeliner and mascara.

After completing the applying for your purple shade and adding the shimmer, it's time to complete your look with eyeliner pencil and mascara. Choose a black or dark purple eyeliner to line your upper lash line, allowing for the option to create a wing for added drama. Ensure a precise and defined line. Following that, apply a coat or two of black mascara to both your upper and lower lashes, emphasizing their length and volume. This final touch will truly make your eyes stand out. Congratulations! You have now achieved a bold and stunning purple eyeshadow look that is ready to impress. In just five easy steps, you can create a bold and captivating purple pink eyeshadow look. Start by priming your lids for a smooth application. Then, wing out the transition color to create a striking shape. Apply a vibrant purple shade and blend it seamlessly. Add a touch of shimmer to the center of your lid for extra sparkle. Finish off with eyeliner and mascara to define your eyes. With these steps, you'll achieve a stunning best purple eyeshadow look that is sure to make a statement.
