CWP Beauty: Ombre Eyeshadow Tutorial with Ure Akwiwu Of Beauty Boulevard

I love ombre makeup and it’s a huge trend at the moment, we have learned how to get an Ombre Lips (find it here) if you are not sure how she drew her brow (read here). Why not try out this uber chic mania at home with the help of the beautiful and talented MUA Ure Akwiwu to achieve an ombre eyeshadow look I’m calling The Purple Haze. J. continue...

Start with a clean, moisturized and primed face. Line your brows using a chocolate brown brow pencil.

Clean, moisturized, primed face and lined brows.

– Prime your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer/eyeshadow base.
– Apply a warm orangey-brown eyeshadow base that’s close to your skin tone in your crease using a blending brush. Blend it upwards in circular motions towards your brow bone and stop just beneath your brow. This will act as your transition color.

–   Apply your first lid color. Start with a light pink shadow with gold undertones. Apply this to the inner 1/3rd portion of your lids. Build the color to your satisfaction.

– For your second lid color, apply a hot pink shadow to the middle portion of your lid and blend the edges into your first color.

– Using a large, round blending brush, blend that berry purple color upwards into your crease. Take the color about halfway into your crease.
– With a small brush, apply a dark purple eyeshadow into the outer V area of your eye and blend gently. This will give the eye even more dimension and intensify the overall look.

– Use a pencil brush to apply the same dark purple eyeshadow to your bottom lash line using back and forth motions.

– Apply an off-white eyeshadow to the inner portion of your eye. This will open up the eyes and intensify the look as well.
