You're going to need:
1. Eyeshadow Primer
2. ELF Studio Endless Eyes Palette (or similar shades of purple eyeshadow)
3. Black Pencil Eyeliner
4. Black Liquid Eyeliner
5. Black Mascara
6. False Eyelashes (optional)
Here are the colors I'll be using in the palette:
1. lavender base shade
2. off-white shimmer highlight shade
3. bluish-purple crease shade
4. deep purple crease shade
5. black outer corner shade
I begin by applying primer to the eyelid. This palette is moderately pigmented without primer, but with primer, the colors really pop!
Next, I'm going to apply the lavender base shade to my entire lid to the brow bone.
Then, I add the shimmery, off-white highlight shade over my brow bone, accenting my brow arch.
Using a black eyeliner pencil, I'm going to line my top and bottom lid lines. Then I'm going to smudge and smoke black eyeshadow right over the pencil eyeliner. You can use the black shadow from the palette.
Since I'm not very experienced at doing crease shading yet, I'm going to use liquid liner to draw a wing along my top lid line. The tip of the wing will serve as a boundary for my crease. I'm not going to want to shade past the wing tip.
Using a crease brush, I'm going to pick up some of the bluish-purple crease shade from the palette. Starting at the outer corner of my eye, right at the hollow of my brow bone, I'm going to begin shading a tapered line towards the inner corner of my eye. The color should start out bold towards the outer corner and fade towards the inner corner.
Next, using my ELF Studio Contour brush, I'm going to dip into the deep purple crease color and shade along the crease line I've already created to deepen the color. What I want to do is create a gradient with dark purple at the outer corner of my eye fading to a lighter purple towards the inner corner of my eye.
I'm also going to accent my bottom lid line with the same deep purple shade using my contour brush.
For added drama, I'm going to add some black shadow to the outer corners of my eyes.
Once I've completed this step, I should have a really defined crease with a nice gradient going from dark purple to lavender. Technically, I think this would be called outer-v crease shading since I've created a sort of "v" shape along the outer corner of my eye.
Using black liquid eyeliner, I'm going to re-define my winged line.
To finish, I curl my lashes, add mascara, and apply false eyelashes for a dramatic look. This step is optional, but I've outlined how to do it and what style eyelashes I used in a previous post.
