2:27 AM

Hey my beautiful loves!
How has your day been? I am super excited to bring you today's tutorial because I didn't really have a look in mind when I started creating it but I love how it turned out! So let's get started with this deep cerulean look with a sprinkle of glitter!

Deep Cerulean and Purple Glitter Smokey Eyes Tutorial: The Veiled Artist
Here's what you'll need:
  • Matte purple eyeshadow
  • Matte cobalt blue eyeshadow
  • Shimmery/satin teal eyeshadow
  • Satin/shimmery burgundy eyeshadow
  • Matte black eyeshadow
  • Shimmery white eyeshadow
  • Black glitter
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • Falsies
Step 1
If you've been following my tutorials for a while, you know I always start my looks with a good ol' warm brown shade in the crease but not today haha! Today we blend a matte purple shade into the crease and a little above it.

Step 2
I unfortunately deleted the picture of this step by accident, but blend the medium cobalt blue eyeshadow all over your mobile eyelids and all the way up to the purple in the crease. This is just so that the next shadow we apply appears more vibrant.

Step 3
Pat and apply the shimmery teal eyeshadow into the inner half of your mobile eyelids and blend the edges out.

Step 4
Next, blend the matte black eyeshadow into the outer half of your eyelids in a c shape and also blend it slightly into the previous teal shadow we applied. This is when the look turned into a gorgeous deep cerulean shade!!

Step 5
Apply a very small amount of glitter glue onto the inner half of your mobile eyelids and then pat the black glitter onto it. Make sure you use very small amounts of both the glue and glitter as we still want the blue eyeshadow peaking through.

Step 6
Do your winged liner or any liner style you prefer really and then curl your lashes and apply mascara.

Step 7
Blend the burgundy eyeshadow all along your lower lashline. Next, apply a white shimmery eyeshadow into the inner corners of your eyes and blend it into the blue on the eyelids and burgundy on the lower lashline.

Step 8
Pop on some falsies and you're done loves!! I wanted to use lashes because they add a great finishing touch to any look but I didn't want all our hard work to go to waste so I used a very light pair of lashes. You can do the same and use a wispy pair!
