The delicate pink palette adds some strong doses of feminine elements to your look. In order to get this bewitching and velvety pink eye look, you need to go for the seductive plum shade which enables you a flirtatious look.
Here is the tutorial –
Step 1 – Use eye primer: Prep your eyes first by using a suitable primer so as to prevent your shadow from getting smudged. Now apply a shimmery pink shade, just as the Balm’s Stubborn at the corner of the lid in both the eyes. This will give some dramatic effect to your look.
Step 2 – Use champagne colored eye shadow: After you’re done with the edges, dab some champagne colored eye shadow at the center of both the lids, by gently blending it with the pink shade.
Step 3 – Use cherry, brown-plum hue: The Too Faced Cherry Cordial is the perfect item to get this look. Use this shade at the outer areas and blend it smoothly with the champagne shade present at the center.
Step 4 – Create plum-esque taupe color: Now that you’re done with the basics, now use a crease brush to create the plum-esque taupe color. This color is lighter than Cherry Cordial and wear it on the creases.
Start working at the outer edges and lighten up the shade as you reach the inner areas.
Step 5 – Again use champagne colored shadow: This time wear this shade by using a fluffy brush. Simply sweep the brush back and forth above your crease until the two shades are blended with each other. Do add a hint of this shade at the inner edges over the shimmery palette.
Step 6 – Highlight your brow bone: Use a very nude shade to highlight the brow bone areas and blend it smoothly with the champagne shade above the crease.
Step 7 – Use black eyeliner: Now it’s time to define the shape of your upper lids. By using black eyeliner pencil or liquid whatever you’re convenient with, define your upper lids carefully. Do not make it too thick or too thin.
Step 8 – It’s time for mascara: Now apply a gentle coat of mascara to highlight your lashes. Ignore if the weather is humid at your place.
Step 9 – Cherry brown lipstick: Now complete your look with cherry brown lip color.
#2 Radiant Orchid – For bold and beautiful

If you prefer bold look then this shade of purple will do. This playful look will also enable you score 10 on 10 for your fashion forwardness.
Step 1 – Use primer and shimmery boysenberry colour: After priming up your eyes with primer to ensure its longetivity, now apply a shimmery boysenberry shade just as the Urban Decay’s Junkshow at the inner 2/3rd areas of your lids.
Step 2 – Use dark plum eye shadow: The Fig.1 by MAC is the best option to get this look. Apply this radiant orchid shade at the outer V and across the lower lashline (do not use at the inner corner). Now highlight this shade by using the boysenberry color.
Step 3 – Reapply dark plum shade: Now use the same shade on the creases using a fluffy brush to blend the color. Create a a winged shape from the outer corner with the blending brush and keep blending till you’ve obtained the soft edges.
Step 4 – Dad matte white eye shadow: Now highlight your brow bone just like the above look by dabbing some matte white eye shadow and also use some at the inner edges near the tear ducts.
