Today's Makeup Look - Smokey Purple

So I know I haven't done a makeup look in FOREVER, but I've been so distracted with other things in my life right now that I haven't been able to blog quite as much as I'd like.  I've been actively looking for a job for well over a month.  Hopefully my prospects will improve soon.  

Anywaaaaaay...for this look, I used a bunch of cosmetics I haven't used in ages.  I think it turned out pretty well.  I coated my whole lid in a light, shimmery base, then placed a silvery-lavender on the inner half of the lid and a pinkish purple (plum) on the outer half of my lids.
I pulled the plum color up into my crease and blended black over it to get a smokier look.  Then I highlighted my inner corners and browbone in the silvery-lavender and drug the plum color down under the outer two-thirds of my lower lash line.

I finished with a pretty purple gel liner over the top lashes and black on my lower waterline.  Add some mascara and some soft, matte pink lipgloss and you're all done!

Products used:  Jordana creme eye shadow stick in 13 April Showers (as a base)
Any shimmery, silvery-lavender eyeshadow
Any plum, or pinkish purple eyeshadow
Any black eyeshadow (I depotted all these shadows awhile ago, so I don't remember their names)
Jane Be Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliner in Wine 03
Revlon Timeliner for Eyes in Ebony
Maybelline The Falsies mascara in Black Drama
Aura Science Shine lip lacquer in Wisper Pink


  1. I have no luck with frosty shadows but this looks really nice on you. makes your eyes look extra green :)

  2. Thanks! And just keep trying, playing around with different colors you like until you get the effect you're after. Just practice. I still struggle to get my eyeliner even on both sides! lol
