MY LOOK - Purple Party

The other day I was thinking about all the different shades of eye makeup I wear and then I thought, why don't I wear more purple. Oh yeah I don't wear purple because I always put it on wrong and end up leaving the house looking like a clown. Well not this time, I made sure it was well blended and that I didn't put too much on.

Achieving the Look

1.  Apply Light gold all over your eyelid
2. Apply a light purple and extend it to your brow bone
3. Apply a darker purple at the end of your eye and make a "v" motion extending it into your crease
4. Apply a streak of white eyeliner and extend it out to form a small wing
5. Apply a thick line of liquid eyeliner to the upper lash line and wing it at the end
6. Smudge a little bit of black underneath your lower lash line to create a bit of a smokey look
7.  Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes
8. Dust a bit of shimmery gold in your tear duct
9.  Apply white eyeliner to your lower water line
I just want to explain something. The reason the pictures have different lighting is because I like to take a picture of my makeup in the natural light and then in fake light to make sure it looks good both ways. This is a really good trick because I've done my makeup in fake light and then got into the car and looking in the mirror and it look horrible.


  1. Nice clean eyeliner flick, you wouldn't believe how many people get it wrong!
