e.l.f. Purple Eyes Makeup Tutorial

Hi everyone! On Monday, while just messing with my e.l.f. palettes and playing with makeup, I created an easy purple makeup, and everyone seemed to be loving it. I wanted you to see how to create eyes like that, so I did this makeup again, and took some pictures for you. 
To created this eye makeup I used :
I used only 4 colours of these two palettes. Purple and dark silver from The Baked Palette and the lightest and the brightest yellows from The Little Black Beauty Book.
Step 1. What I did first was applying (any) white eyeshadow on my eyelid where I would be later applying my other eyeshadows, just to use it as a base and make the colours look brighter . You don't need to do it, it's totally up to you. Next I applied the dark silver eyeshadow in the crease of the eye. Don't apply it in the whole crease, leave the inner corner of the eye without eyeshadow. Use more layers of this eyeshadow in the outer corner of the eye as we want it to be the darkest part. Make sure to blend it in with a clean brush. 
Step 2 & 3. I find the best way to apply the next eye shadow is to use a sponge applicator as it doesn't smudge the eyeshadow too much, and therefore makes the colour look brighter. So first, apply the purple eyeshadow in the inner and outer corner of the eye, just below the crease, and also draw a line at the bottom of your eye with the same eyeshadow, just make sure the line is not too thick. Don't apply the purple colour in the middle of the eyelid as we will now apply the brightest yellow there. And again, make sure to blend it in, we don't want to see any lines.
Step 4. It's time to draw a winged eyeliner! It couldn't be easier. The best way to do it is to always draw it with your eyes open! Start with drawing a super thin line in the inner corner, but make sure to scrape off any excess eyeliner as we want to draw a very thin line! Next draw the line wider just before the middle of the eye. (That will make your eyes look bigger!). Continue drawing it with the same width to the outer corner. Now just make a straight line from the outer corner of your eye. You can make it as long as you as want your "flick" to be. Make a joined curved line between the both lines. Tah-Dah. You just made a perfect winged eyeliner!
Step 5 & 6. Last two steps are super easy. All you have to do is apply mascara and use a little brush to apply the lightest yellow from The Little Black Beauty Book in the inner corner of the eye and apply a little on the upper and lower eyelids just by the inner corner. You can also use the same colour on the brow bow, to brighten up your eyes.
That's how I created my purple eyes look! If you like the finish effect and my tutorial then comment on this post and follow my blog if you haven't done it already:)
