Hey Beauty Lovers! I think violet eyeshadows can look really chic when you use them as an accent rather than the main colour. To create this subtle violet smokey eye I applied the Stila Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz all over the lid [do use a primer!], it's a glittery sheer eyeshadow that creates that wet eyelids effect. Then taking the Dahlia, which is a matte deep violet shade, onto a flat eyeliner brush - I applied it right into the corner as if creating a light flick but then brushing the eyeshadow upwards a little so that it blends nicely into the sparkles. With the same brush I took Dahlia also into the socket, but keeping it quite light. For the smokey eye effect I also blended a touch of Dahlia under the lower lashes.
Using a black eyeliner [MAC Kohl Power in Feline] I have then lined the eyes making sure to go over it with Dahlia to blend edges for a softer look. For the eyebrows I have used Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color in Light, it's a perfect shade for blondes. I love it with my current hair colour! It has a fine brush, so you can literally draw in hairs for a natural brow look.
And finally I have applied the darker shade of the Stila Baked Cheek Duo in Pink Glow where I usually apply blush, and then I followed up with the lighter shade applying it higher on the cheekbones and also right on the apples of the cheeks blending in the colours. The two shades blend in beautifully, giving you that super pretty glowy cheek! It seems to have a pearly shimmer, but not too excessive and rather flattering. And I love the metal rose-gold packaging!
