How can I get this look? For some reason, I can't seem to nail it no matter how many times I've tried, I'm not very good at recreating looks
I have brown eyes btw, if that matters...

I would say that this is a very clean and simple look and the thing that makes it so special is because Gamma is a beauty^^

Thanks! It almost looks like there maybe some purple-ish eyeshadow there but I think it's just the colour of her eyes/photoshop.

I think you'd have to get a flawless base around your eyes, making sure you hide any natural darkness you might have.
And I agree, there seems to be a kind of greyish mid-tone brown and VERY fine liner on her tops lids.
I have two ideas for the bottom lids:
1. First, apply mascara, getting the brush all the way down to the roots. Line messily from the inner to outer corners with a dark purple kohl pencil. Use a q-tip or pencil brush and smudge the kohl along the bottom lid, then go into the roots and smudge the kohl and mascara together, so you get a nice blended, finished look.
2. Use a black and a purple kohl liner, apply the black at the roots of the bottom lashes very finely, and then go in with the purple kohl. Doesn't have to be perfect, since you're smudging it. Best is to first smudge the purple so you get a nice smooth finish, and then go in and blend with the black, delicately. And mascara last.
If you get a bit of a black eye thing going on because you brought the purple down too much, just clean it up with concealer and blend the edges again. Smudging and blending is key.
Her waterline looks really clear and bright, so you might want to add a dash of flesh-colored liner as a last step.
The purple will look great with brown eyes, I think!
I'm too wordy!

Any ideas what she could have used on her cheeks? The colour looks so natural and subtle
