  • The first step to almost any eye makeup application is a primer. Priming the lid helps to absorb any oils on the lid and gives the pigment a surface to cling to, ensuring you get the brightest hue possible from your shadow.

  • Apply a basic neutral shadow all over the lid up to the brow bone. We chose L’Oreal’s Infallible® 24 HR Eye Shadow in Iced Latte because it’s got the perfect hint of shimmer to offset the bright shadow. $7.95; lorealparisusa.com

  • Sweep a deep violet shadow from the crease of the eye around to the lower lash line. The shadow should extend out to the end of the eyebrow and then wrap around. Infallible® 24 HR Eye Shadow in Perpetual Purple; $7.95; lorealparisusa.com

  • An unexpected step and a trick to help make the violet pop is to add a hint of deep brown shadow to the outer corner of the lid. Apply a shadow like L’Oreal’s Infallible® 24 HR Eye Shadow in Continuous Cocoa in a circular motion starting at the outer corner and blend into the violet shadow. $7.95; lorealparisusa.com

  • Next apply an electric blue liner to the upper lid. Start at the outer corner of the lid and draw a hard line across to the inner eye. Double Extend® Eye Illuminator Eyeliner in Black Sapphire; 8.95; lorealparisusa.com

  • Blend a bright blue shadow from the inner corner of the upper and lower lids into the violet shadow to create the ombre effect. Applying the shadow after the liner helps to set the liner in place. Infallible® 24 HR Eye Shadow in Infinite Sky; $7.95; lorealparisusa.com
