Between the shorter days, longer nights and the cold temperatures, the winter blues have a way of settling in during this time of year. Our favorite way to brighten up our days is with fun and colorful makeup looks like this ombré flower eye by @pradaolic. The vibrant pink and red pigments and the cute floral design are giving us all the good vibes. If you’re in need of a pick-me-up yourself, follow our step-by-step tutorial on how to create the look, ahead.
  • STEP 1:

    Outline and Fill in Your Shape

    Start by using a concealer or an eyeshadow primer (we like the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion) to create a large oval shape starting from the inner corner, up just above the crease and ending at the outer corner of your eyes. Use a small shadow brush for this step to help get a precise outline and then fill it in with the primer to help make the shadows you’ll apply next pop. 

  • STEP 2:

    Create Your Ombré

    After your oval shape is done, apply Slowburn from the Urban Decay Wired Palette, a bright red shade, on the inner corner and take it to the center of the lid. Then, apply the shade Savage from the same palette, a bright neon pink shade, on the outer corner up to the center of the lid. The key to creating a gradient look is to blend, blend, blend the two colors until there are no harsh lines where they meet.

    Outline Your Oval

    Using the NYX Professional Makeup White Liquid Liner, outline your oval shape to create highlighted accents. For this look, @pradaolic focused the white liner on her inner tear duct and inner corner of her eye.

  • STEP 4:

    Create Your Flowers

    On the outer corner of your eyes, outline a flower using the same white eyeliner you used in step three. Once you’ve drawn the shape of your flower, fill it in and add a black dot in the center of each flower using a black eyeliner.
