It’s not too pink, but it’s not that purple either. Magenta is the most refreshing colour of the season, and we found that any skin tones can rock the shades! Trust on the pigmented eye shadow palette. The best way to pull off the look is by having a monochrome make-up. It means that you play with beige and different shades of magenta for your eyes, cheeks, and lips.
At the Oscar De La Renta spring/summer 2019 show, the models were wearing magenta eyeliner and brushed the lower eyelids with shimmery eye shadows shade. Lips? Go for a pink rose blush. On the other hand, Valentino was using a shimmery shade of magenta, which applied really cool on dark skin tones.
Invest in Eye Palettes
To create flattering smokey eyes, you need to have a base and shading colours for the eyelids. First, you need to even out your eyelids’ tone with foundation. Next, if you want to put more depth and create smokey eyes, put on eyeliner with the darkest magenta shade. Then, smudge it a bit with eyeshadow blender brush to create the smokey effect. You can apply the medium shade of magenta to your middle part of the eyelid to the outer corner until the crease. Put on champagne or shimmery baby magenta shades for the inner corner to the middle eyelids. Smoothen the below eyebrow part to the outer corner with soft violet hues to blend the lines that created from the eyeshadows at the crease of your eyes.
The second way, you can go light by applying a subtle magenta shade on your eyelids with a shimmery finish. For darker skin tone, the shimmery finish is essential to compliment your skin tone. Remember to always smoothen up the below eyebrows part so your smokey eyes will look seamless.
