Gradient Orchid Look

I haven't ever tried this style, but I love the black eyeshadow winged on the outer edges with the purple blended in between the "wings." It made my eyes seem big even though I applied black eyeliner on my waterline.

Products Used:
  • UDPP [lid till under the brow + tear duct area + lower lashline]
  • NYX  Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk [lid till browbone +lower lashline]
  • BH Cosmetics eyeshadow in CS06 [inner third of lid till the browbone + tear duct area + inner third of lower lashline + between both the "wings"]
  • BH Cosmetics eyeshadow in CS16 [middle third of lid till the browbone + middle third of lower lashline]
  • BH Cosmetics eyeshadow in MM06 [outer two-thirds of the browbone]
  • BH Cosmetics eyeshadow in CM20 [outer third of lid + outer corner/triangle + outer third of lower lashline & winged on the corner] 
  • Sedona Lace 88 Metal Eyeshadow Palette [a mix of the cream shades under the brow]
  • L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip eyeliner in Carbon Black [slightly winged on the upper lashline] 
  • Almay Blendable Eye Pencil in Black [tightline + waterline]
  • L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black [upper + lower lashes] 
  • Falsies [upper lashline]

When I wear coloured eyeshadows I tend to use a lot of purple shades. Which colour do you reach for the most besides brown?

I usually go for blue or purple when I want to do a look with colour.

This is beautiful! I did a look kind of similar with the same type of duochrom-y purple yesterday!
