What you'll need:
  • Shimmery Purple eyeshadow
  • Shimmery Lilac eyeshadow
  • Shimmery white or champagne eyeshadow
  • Warm matte brown eyeshadow
  • Matte black eyeshadow or black eyeliner pencil
  • Black Eyeliner(liquid or gel)
  • White or nude eyeliner pencil
  • Mascara
  • False eyelashes(optional)
Let's get started!!
Step 1
Since this is such a bright look, prime your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer or foundation and set it with some powder. 
Step 2
Blend the matte warm brown shade into your crease and a little lower onto your eyelids as well.
Step 3
Messily apply a matte black eyeshadow or some black eyeliner to the inner third and outer thirds of your eyelids and blend it out.
Step 4
Pat some shimmery purple shadow just over the black we previously applied. And slightly blend the edges out.
Step 5
Pat the shimmery lilac shade onto the center of your eyelids(shown left) and blend it out into the purple on both sides(shown right)
Step 6
Reapply the matte brown shade we first blended into our crease, to make the crease appear deeper and to also blend the top edges of the purple shadows out.

Step 7
Skipping step 3, repeat steps 4 and 5 on your lower lashline.

Step 8
Pat some shimmery champagne or white(if you have light skin) eyeshadow into the inner corners of your eyes.
Step 9
Finish with some winged liner and mascara. Also, line your lower waterline with the white or nude pencil liner as this would make your eyes appear more open.
