Purple Smokey Eye!






Havnt done a makeup look for a while so as I have not had much to do this morning I did one. Smokey eyes are so popular especially for nights out so I decided to do one with a bit of a twist. I have used purples to create it rather than blacks or browns to show you can create a smokey eye with any shades. Hope you like...



Face:
Revlon Photo Ready Foundation
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Lover
GOSH Giant Sun Powder


I started with foundation fist then I actually did my eyes next. I concealed under the eyes after I had done them as its less messy and you can neaten up your lines too. I then set everything with the loose powder. I used the bronzer next not to contour but to warm it up a bit as im so pale right now, I used it on the cheekbones nose and forehead... anywhere which would naturally catch the sun. I added a tiny bit of blusher not much just a little on the apples of the cheeks and then highlighted the tops of the cheekbones with the GOSH powder.







Eyes:
Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate
MAC Eye shadow in - Beauty Marked, Sketch, Folie, Ricepaper and Coppering
Avon Black Kohl Eyeliner Pencil
Maybelline Gel Liner
ABH Brow Wiz Pencil
Benefit Gimme Brow
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara


First I did my eyebrows the same as always starting off with the pencil and then setting with the gimme brow. Then I applied the cream colour tattoo just over the eyelid. This acts as a nice base for the eye shadow to go over. I then applied Beauty marked just over the top of the cream eye shadow. I used Sketch in the outer corner and into the crease and blended out. I used Folie to blend it out towards the brow, then highlighted the brow bone with Ricepaper. Using a big fluffy brush I made sure there were no harsh lines. This is just a quick break down of what I did you may find you have to really blend like crazy to get the effect and keep adding more product where you u need it as you go along.


I then lined the top lash line with a gel liner into a little flick at the end. For the under eye I lined the water line and lash line with the pencil. At the inner corner I highlighted it with Coppering eye shadow, I though this would look a bit different I blended it into the eyeliner too. I smudged out the eyeliner with sketch eye shadow to create a smokey effect. I finally applied a little more Beauty Marked to the lid and a few coats of mascara. Using False eyelashes would look great with this but I didn't have any at the time.




Lips:
NYX Lip Pencil in Pale Pink
L'Oreal lip extraordinaire in Nude Ballet

I lined the whole lip with the lip pencil then applied the L'Oreal liquid lipstick all over. I wanted a nude lip to the eyes stood out and I chose this one as its a little glossy too.






So that is my purple smokey eye look I think its suitable for anyone and perfect for a night out. thanks for reading.
