Have you ever created a makeup look all because of a new addition to your wardrobe? For French makeup artist, Violette, it was a pair of thigh-high chocolate-colored boots that inspired her to create her “chocolat caramel” eye look. So, for a look that’s effortlessly chic and also plays with your outfit, keep reading for Violette’s expert tips. Learn more about how to use a refreshing pink highlighter and bold brown eyeshadow to get a dramatic “chocolat caramel” eye look.
In her tutorial, Violette says you should have a good base to start with. So, whether you wear full or barely-there foundation, be sure your skin is light and glowy. And to get this look, apply concealer not only below the eyes to cover up dark circles, but also on your eyelids. This helps to keep the eyeshadow in place.
Then, Violette applies Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Girl Next Door and Chic Phreak. The pink tones refresh the skin and balance the bold eye color.
For her caramel brown eyes, Violette uses just one color from the Zulu Palette by Juvia’s Place. She starts by applying a strong layer all over the eyelid with a brush, and then she blends the edges to create a soft finish with her finger tips.
To seal the deal, a little mascara for both lashes and brows, along with a dark eyeliner really makes this look pop.
But you’re not done yet!
To keep you looking on fleek, be sure to balance the chocolat caramel eye with a deep blue top, like a navy blue blazer or blouse. This will keep you from looking too brown, and the blue will help bring out the warm shades in your makeup.
