BeautyLuLu*s How-To: Navy and Plum Smokey Eyeshadow Tutorial

We say there is nothing sexier than a smoldering smokey eye, but when you add navy and plum to the mix, it becomes a spring-ready masterpiece! Give this pretty plum look a try by following our simple steps below!

Navy and Plum Smokey Eyeshadow


1. Apply a neutral-toned base color to the upper portion of the lid.

2. Next, sweep a plum-colored eyeshadow to the bottom half of the lid.

3. Blend a shimmery, navy blue eyeshadow over the plum eyeshadow.

4. Use an angle brush to bring the color down and around to the lower lash line.

5. Next, add a highlight to the inner corner.

6. Apply a matte beige eyeshadow just below the brow bone.

7. Create a cat eye using black cream eyeliner and a precision brush.

8. Complete the look with a few coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes!

1. Part your hair to the side, and grab two even sections from the fuller side of the part.

2. Begin your twist by pulling the front section upwards, and the back section down.

3. Twist the sections together and away from your face.

4. Similar to a french braid, add hair to the bottom section, and continue to twist back.

5. Continue adding pieces and twist all the way down to the ends of your hair.

6. Finish the twist by tightly wrapping the two final sections, and fastening with a hair-tie (the tight twist will naturally loosen).

9. Carefully hold each section of the twist, and gently loosen for fullness.

10. Keep loosening all the way down and finish with hairspray!

Lavender essential oil is not only relaxing but helps clear up acne and breakouts, while vitamin E oil helps add elasticity to give your skin a firmed, toned, and youthful glow. As we’ve mentioned in our DIY Coconut Coffee Scrub Cubes, coconut oil is kind of the holy grail of natural skin care, so of course we chose this as our main ingredient. Take a look at the easy steps below!



-1 cup room temperature organic coconut oil (the coconut oil needs to be in a solid form to be turned into a whipped mixture, so refrigerate until firm if your coconut oil is very soft or liquid)

-10-15 drops lavender essential oil

-1 teaspoon vitamin E oil

-Standing or handheld electric mixer (standing is easier since this has to mix for so long)

-Rubber spatula

-Airtight glass jar



1. Add the coconut oil, lavender essential oil, and vitamin E oil to mixing bowl

2. Mix on high speed with metal whisk for 7-8 minutes (scraping down the sides of the bowls with the rubber spatula every couple of minutes) or until a light, airy consistency is achieved and white peaks form.

3. Spoon the whipped coconut butter into an airtight glass jar, and apply anywhere on your body immediately after showering!


Tip: Your butter might feel a bit moist after whipping it, but it will set up to the correct consistency after a few hours.
