Starry Night Eye Makeup Tutorial
Yesterday, I showed you how to come up with cool makeup color palettes based on your favorite paintings. Now it’s time to show you a fun example!
When I put Starry Night in the Color Palette Generator, I got dull and vibrant color palettes. I decided to go with the dull palette for this eye makeup tutorial.
But I needed to find eye shadow colors that could match! This is what I came up with:
- Urban Decay Electric Palette in Fringe
- Stila Charmed Eye Shadow Palette in the bluish color
- BH Cosmetics 88 Color Matte Eyeshadow Palette in a seafoam green
- Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Rich Gold for the light beige color
- e.l.f. Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette in the light blue
Some of those colors match the original palette better than others, but I still like what I came up with. Now, for the tutorial!
Because we’re doing a colorful eye shadow look, I started with a base. I used the beige version of the NYX Eyeshadow Base all over my lid.
(I also added more of the light blue in this step since it started to disappear from the lid.)
Because this eye shadow look is based on the Starry Night painting, why not add some sparkles to act as stars? I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy on the outer half of the lower lid.
After a liberal application of Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Va Va Voom Volume Mascara, the look was complete!
What do you think? Will you do this tutorial?
I love it! I think it matched the Starry Night color palette pretty well without looking like I copied a painting.
Let’s chat about it in the comments!
