Hey y’all! Welcome to day 6 of blogmas. Just trucking along through it. Today I am bringing y’all this awesome sunset inspired eye look using the Morphe 35B palatte.
I know some of you do not like Morphe because of the drama with the Jaclyn Hill palatte and how they are being “shady” about nothing when things were changing. I was a little hot about the fact that they changed the packaging on the Jaclyn Hill palatte and that it wasn’t “limited edition” like we were led to believe but that is another post. . .
I bought the Morphe 35B over a year ago to create my Harley Quinn makeup look because the palette had a really vibrant red and vibrant blue. Also, I want to say it’s the palette that Nikki Tutorials used in her tutorial of Harley Quinn. Anyway, side tracked. . .
I was inspired by these two looks. I have no idea who they are or who created them because I literally found them on Pintrest. Lol. I love the whole purpley orange eye, especially on green eyes. Everyone who saw my photos kept asking if my eyes were fake.
To start, I took some concealer (Tarte Shape Tape) and put it all over my eyes. I did not do my face first. I always do my eyes incase there is any fall out. Here is the way I used the shadows from the palatte above. I numbered them for reference.
I took 1 and put it all over my lid to set the concealer and give the eye shadow a base to sit on. After that I took 2 and put it from the center of my lid to the inner corner. You need to put the yellow on before the orange so that it doesn’t get washed out by the orange. Then I moved on to building the crease and blending the crap out of everything. Usually my make up takes about 30 mins for the whole face, I spent 20 mins on my eyes alone because of the amount of blending needed to make this look cohesive. I started with 3 on the outer corner and started building that into my crease. I focused this over my whole crease with a majority of the product on the outer vee.
I should have taken pictures throughout but that isn’t exactly how my mind works. I do realize that my process is better suited for YouTube. I might get there eventually.
Moving on, I then took 4 on a fluffy brush and dabbed in the outside corner and took a clean fluffy blender brush to blend it out into the crease. I did the same thing with 5, 6, and 7. Taking the time in between each to blend, blend, blend and blend some more. If you think you’re done blending, blend some more.
After this I completed my face makeup. Then I went back to my eyes to finish the bottom lash line and my inner corner.
I started with 8 and placed it from the outer corner of my eye 2/3’s of the way to the inner corner. Then I went in with 9 and took it the same distance. Next I took 10 and took it 1/3 of the way and finally I took 11 and put the smallest amount in the outer corner of my eye. Again, blend the crap out of it.
For the inner corner and a 1/3 of the way under my eye from the inner corner I used 12 and blended it up onto my lid to look more cohesive. Finally, I used 13 to highlight my brow bone.
I am sooooo in love with this look. I was blown away when it was finished. I literally got bored at 10 in the morning and started playing around with my makeup. You never know what you can create when you just attempt it. Let me know if there is any other looks that you guys want to see. I am totally looking for inspiration!
One more because I can’t even with this look. Lol.
