Easy eye makeup? YES, PLEASE. This four-step lavender lid has been my go-to all week long.
It involves a layering technique, which I think is fun and easy. You start with a shimmery cream shadow base, and then layer and blend a matte powder shadow on top. The result? A shimmery base that peeks through the matte for a soft, subtle shine.
To get a similar look, you’ll need…
A shimmery cream eyeshadow, like Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Orchid. I like this one because I can blend it easily with my fingers.
A matte lavender powder eyeshadow. This one’s from the Ilia Cool Nude Eyeshadow Palette.
A black liquid liner. I used my favorite Clinique Easy Liner in Black. The flexible felt tip makes it easy to control the width of my lines.
A shimmery dark purple powder eyeshadow. This one is also from the Ilia Cool Nude Eyeshadow palette.
Four steps to lavender lids
Apply your cream shadow as a base, and blend the edges with a brush or finger.
Layer the matte lavender eyeshadow directly on top, then blend.
