Shimmer Eye Makeup | Una

Hey Friends! How exciting, this is Tri Makeup’s first actual make up look and I have the honour of starting it off. Today’s look will be a sparkly eye look featuring predominately the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. I only have a picture of the final look as we were in a bit of a rush to get ready so apologies for that! If would you prefer a stage by stage picture breakdown of makeup looks in the future please let us know in the comments . šŸ™‚

I will be focusing solely on the eyes in today’s post but first I should introduce my beautiful model Amy! She has gorgeous green eyes which unfortunately you cannot see and the foundation she wears is Mac Face & Body in the colour N10 if anyone was wondering!


I first put a base layer of Urban Decay primer potion to ensure the eyeshadow stayed put all night long. I then covered the eyelid with Sidecar using a flat and slightly damp brush to reduce the amount of fallout which this shadow is renowned for. To define the eye socket I used Naked using a Mac 217 brush. I constantly used small, circle movements to ensure the colour was blended in and not seen as a harsh line. The same colour was placed underneath the eye using the pencil brush for more precision.

Amy really wanted a smoky outer edge to her eye so I mixed Hustle & Creep so the black wasn’t too strong compared to Amy’s skin tone. I simply used the all over eyeshadow brush to apply both these colours in a V shape to give a slightly winged out eye shape.

Then my beloved Mac 217 returned to blend the colours together seamlessly. I ran that black/brown colour mixture again under the lid to tie in the look. To highlight Amy’s inner corners I mixed Sin & Virgin and applied that again using the pencil brush. I lined the lids very thinly using L’Oreal’s gel eyeliner and an angled brushed. I completed the look with some mascara, my current favourite being Maybelline’s The Falsies. The curved brush really gets the mascara deep into the roots to give a beautiful curved lash.
