Cotton Candy Eye Makeup | Tutorial

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Something I love to do in my spare time is play with makeup. I really enjoy creating looks, especially using colours that will make me feel out of my comfort zone. I recently went on a night out with some friends and created a cotton candy inspired look which I shared on my Instagram stories, and was asked to create a tutorial, so let's get started!

The only palette I used for this look is the Jawbreaker palette by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. This is my second palette of Jeffree's and his eyeshadows have the absolute best quality in my opinion. All of his products are vegan and cruelty free, so it's a no brainer why I keep going back to his high quality brand. The Jawbreaker palette is probably my favourite palette he has released so far, it is full of bright colours and I especially love the second row which is filled with bright pastels. This palette has 24 large panned shadows mixing from mattes, shimmers and metallics. The price point is on the higher end, at £54 but I wouldn't have spent that money if I didn't already trust and adore his products. I truly believe you're paying for the best eyeshadows out there, they blend like a dream and this palette in particular has so much to offer.

Now, moving onto the actual look itself. I started off as always by doing my eyebrows (if you'd like a full-face makeup tutorial, let me know in the comments!) and then I used the Revolution Fast Base Foundation stick in shade F1 to carve my eyebrows and also to create a base all over my lid for the eyeshadow.
I started off applying the shade Gum Drop with a large tapered blending brush (I used Spectrum's) and buffed this into the outer crease, taking my time and carefully dragging it out towards my eyebrow. I then took the Spectrum B04 brush and applied the shade Bubble Gum to the inner part of my crease, blending that in with the lavender shade.

Next I took a round edge flat packer brush to cut my crease, I always use the Revolution foundation stick I mentioned above to do this. Taking this same brush I pack on the Good Morning shade to set the cream base, and then applied the shimmery pink shade Snack all over the lid.
I then used the Spectrum A07 brush to blend both Bubble Gum and Gum Drop on the outer corner, to blend in the cut crease with the original colours so it looks seamless. Before I applied my mascara I then took a smaller fluffy brush to apply the colour Brain Freeze under my lash line, making sure to blend it out so it doesn't look too harsh.

Finally, for the liner I actually used one of Jeffree's Velour Liquid Lipsticks (which is completely eye-safe!) from the Alien collection in the shade Clout, which is metallic lavender. I used the Spectrum A09 brush to achieve the perfect wing as with the brush being so small, it allows for very fine details.

That's how I created this look! It's a lot more simple than it probably seemed, and I really fell in love with this one. If you'd like to see more makeup tutorials from me, please let me know! Comment what you thought about this sugary sweet look!
