It’s a brand new year, and instead of focusing on getting glowing skin or exfoliating away 2016, we’re making a resolution to have more fun with beauty. Why just stick to the basics every day? Bright colourful makeup can be one of the best ways to put some life into your look, especially if the rest of your outfit is buried beneath winter layers.
We love Annabelle’s affordable vegan and cruelty-free products, so you can expect to see a monthly look with them this year! First up, we decided to channel one of our favourite gemstones into a dreamy lavender eye makeup tutorial. The stone of sweet dreams and wisdom, add some extra sparkle to your eyes with the glittery magic of the amethyst!

What we used //
Start by applying a thin even layer of primer all over the face and eyelids, this will keep your quartz-coloured powders from going anywhere.
Apply the darkest shade, Violet, to the outer corners of the eyes and into the crease of the lid. Use Cloud in the middle of the lid and blend well with Violet. Use Aura as the lightest shade to highlight the upper lid and inner corners of the eye.
Use a smaller brush to draw a thin line of Cloud along the outer bottom edge of the eye.
Now use the Self-sharpening eyeliner to draw on a cat eye, the primer will keep the shadow in place while you slide the pencil over. For a more bold look try the Metallic Amethyst pencil.
Finish it off with the Lash-launcher Supernova Mascara and you’re ready to go!
