It’s now beginning to feel like Spring where I live, and yesterday I finally saw some blooms on trees. I think the warmth is here to stay! That being said, I’ve been adding some brighter colors to my routine lately, to match my uplifted mood from all the spring sunshine. I think this look would be very pretty for Easter, too!

I used the e.l.f. cosmetics “party purple” eye palette for this look. For $2, I was actually impressed with the pigmentation of this product. Before applying the eye shadows, I primed my eyelids with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. I used this eye shadow in a slightly different way than the palette suggests, so read on to find out how!
I applied all of my makeup with my MOTD Cosmetics brushes to create this eye look, as well. These brushes lay down pigment beautifully, and blend the products seamlessly with little effort.

1. I applied this lightest color as my transitional shade. I used the Eye Catching Crease brush to place this just in my crease, and used the same brush to blend out any harsh lines.
2. I added the next shade just below the crease, using the same crease brush. I blended this into the previous shade.
3. I packed this deeper shade onto my lid using the Miss Shady Lady brush. I used this same brush to blend this up into the last shade.
4. I used the darkest shade as my top and bottom liner. I used the Straight to the Point brush to apply this color. This brush is an ideal angled liner brush, it’s not too flat, and not too angled. For me, it makes getting to the lash line, and creating a slightly winged out look very simple.
That’s all there is to it! Like I said, I was impressed with this little $2 palette. The only thing I disliked about this palette is how every shade is a shimmery finish. This is why I didn’t use any of the shades as a highlighter under my brow bone. Instead, I used a matte shade that matched my skin tone from another palette.
What’s your go-to spring shade this year?
