Prom Makeup: Punky Purple

Black Eyeshadow

I’m using a shimmery black shade from my Urban Decay Vice Palette called Black Market. I picked a shimmery black because I like the glossy effect it gives, but if you want more intensity, stick with a matte texture. Apply the shadow starting from the center of the upper lash line, then form an upward wing. It’s almost as if you were doing a thick smudged winged liner with eyeshadow. Then blend inward from the top of the wing, creating that perfectly imperfect edge.
