Springtime 'Beat': Lavender & Coral Eye Makeup

     Hello lovelies!  Hmmm....this lavender and coral combo that I was working with on the eyes, really puts an image to mind of blossoming hydrangeas, don't you think? I know I'm getting a little ahead of myself with the springtime pastels, especially when I'm reminded of the foot of snow that showed up completely uninvited on my driveway over the weekend. Oh, and the freezing wind chill temperatures that my city hasn't seen on record for the month since the late 1800s. 'Tis spring fever.....Need I say more?

     The eyes are a recreation and my take on the beautiful celebrity makeup artist Tamanna Roashan's Lavender & Coral Smokey Eyes. The woman has amazing talent and is such an inspiration. Just in case you don't know who she is, her name should at the very least sound familiar, because of her collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills this past holiday season, where she had a hand in the design and creation of the beautifully exotic (and unfortunately, limited edition, so, yours truly missed out) Tamanna Eyeshadow Palette. 

Scroll down for a list of products that were used on the eyes and face!


1) Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
2) CG Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in 'Ivory'
3) Skinfood Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream in shade 01 for the undereyes (not pictured)
4) Maybelline Master Conceal by Face Studio Camouflaging Concealer in 'Fair' to spot conceal
5) Estee Lauder Lucidity Pressed Powder in '06 Transparent' in my T-Zone (not pictured)


1) Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance
2) Base: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk' on the mobile lid stopping just above the eye socket, and applied underneath the arch of the brow
3) Fyrinnae Loose Eyeshadow in 'Herbivore' packed only into the center portion of the mobile lid and extended just above the eye socket
4) LORAC Eyeshadow in 'Mango' packed into the remaining blank areas of the mobile lid (outer third and inner third) and extended just above the eye socket as well, making sure to gently blend in and slightly overlap the lavender shade, and switching the coral and lavender colors as needed to make sure both colors are apparent, yet blended; be careful, as this can turn muddy rather quickly
5) MAC Copperplate e/s applied with an angled liner brush on the border of the lavender and coral, following the natural curvature of the eye socket and drawing the line inward until it meets the end of the purple (about two-thirds of the way in)
6) Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral Matte Palette (shades used: shade #6 in the palette as a transition shade to slightly blend out the border of Copperplate, and then shade #9 applied with the angled liner brush right on top of Copperplate, drawing that line just a third of the way inward; blend the border of #9 with the #6 shade; I tapped into both shades #1 and #3 to highlight underneath the arch of my brow)
7) Graphic eyeliner: I just used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in 'Perversion' as a base on both the top and bottom lashlines; I had to create the edges and the double wings by using an angled liner brush and just applying the liner in sections until I got the desired angles and edges; I just set it with a jet black eyeshadow from some random Wet 'n' Wild palette and the same angled liner brush
8) L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara applied quite liberally to the top and bottom lashes
9) Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quad in 'Sunset Seduction' (shade used: iridescent pink on the left that reminds me very much of a pressed form of MAC's Pink Opal pigment, applied in the inner corner of the eye and slightly overlapping the coral)
10) Brows: a light taupe eyeshadow from my Coastal Scents 88 Matte Palette

How do you like graphic eye makeup? Let me know!
