Find out more about the Smoky Contrast technique and learn how to reproduce this colorful look, step by step.

Inspired by colors and colorful events such as the Holi festival in India, our makeup artist Virginie Rivière created for you a purple &coral look to dress your eyes with beautiful colors and to get an intense and mysterious look.

A perfect look for the beginning of the summer, now learn how to reproduce it step by step:

Step 1 - Apply Aqua Matic #I-90 (or Aqua Cream 19) along the upper and lower lash line:
• Upper lash line: Thicker on the inner and outer corner of the eye getting thinner to the center.
• Lower lash line: thick on the outer corner getting thinner on the inner eye corner.

Step 2 - Blend:
• Upper eyelid: Blend in working from the inner and outer corner of the eye towards the center, and make sure not to cover the center of the eye lid.
• Lower eyelid: blend the pencil downwards.
For more intensity, apply on top of the pencil an Eye Shadow #92 and blend it slightly towards the center of the eyelid and into the crease of the eye.

Step 3 - Apply a medium Eye Shadow Shade # 09:
• On the eyelid blending it in with Eye Shadow #92, and make sure not to cover the center of the eyelid.
• In the crease blending it in with Eye Shadow #92, and slightly upwards to the brow bone.

Step 4 - Apply a light / contrasting Eye Shadow shade #07, to the center of the eyelid for a touch of light. Make sure that the touch of light is well centered, otherwise it could give you the illusion as if you squint.

Step 5 - Apply Aqua Cream #09 on the lower eyelid and blend it downwards.

Step 6 - Apply the Aqua Smoky Extravagant Mascara from the root of your lash line to the end of your lashes, stretching them slightly outwards.

Step 7 - Shape the contour of the lips with the Aqua Lip #14C. Blend the drawn line towards the inside.

Step 8 - Apply Aqua Rouge #14 on the lips.
