How to Create Eye Envy with Aphrodite This Season!
One of the most exciting parts of the festive period is getting ready for parties and our girl, beauty blogger Masnax, has shown us how to sculpt with our contouring kit in her latest instagram post. She has also recently made a gorgeous soft eyeshadow tutorial to go with your contour using our new Aphrodite palette!
At Contour Cosmetics, we have come up with a simple step by step tutorial for your eye makeup to be on point to match your contour makeup application this season:
Step 1: Prep
It is crucial to prep the area around the eyes properly before applying any makeup. Add some eye primer so that your makeup stays put for your night out and gives a seamless finish. Our primer, THE BASE, works very well and ensures that your eye makeup will not budge! Pop some concealer on and seal it with a translucent powder to make the skin crease proof and conceal any discolouration.
Step 2: Select your shades
The eye area consists of the eyelid, the crease, and the brow bone. Use shimmery finishes for the eyelid and brow bone and matte finish textures on the crease. Luckily for you, Apthrodite provides you with a selection of essential shades of shimmery and matte finishes! Kalon is the perfect matte taupe shade for all over the eyelid application.
Step 3: Application
When you have selected your shade, apply the eyeshadow all over the eyelid with our double ended brush that comes with the palette. With this brush, you can achieve smooth and even application. Start the application from the centre and sweep it towards both inner and outer corners. Deposit more eyeshadow for more intensity.
Step 4: Crease area
Concentrating now on the crease area, use a darker shade of eyeshadow to define your eye shape. For the crease, Masna chooses Meraki, the shimmery purple shade and it is totally the perfect combo with Kalon to make your eyes pop! Take this shade from the outer corner of your eye and follow the contour of your eyeball around towards the inner corner.
Step 5: Blending
For this soft look, blending it to perfection is an essential step. Start from the outer corner, move your brush with a back and forth motion and blend the dark shadow all the way and continue this until you no longer see a hard line between the two shades.
Step 6: Highlight brow bone
Xenia is the perfect shade for this. Apply this light pink shimmery shade just under the brow bone along the arch of the brow. Make sure you soften the edges too.
With our ultimate feminine eyeshadow palette, you can create any look you want! Go all out and get the perfect smoky eye or choose our gorgeous nude shades to team up with a statement red lip. This is your go-to-palette this season… just pop some mascara on and line your eyes to finish off your look and you’re ready to go!
