Purple Thunder Storm!

Finally, another make up post. I don't know how many of you really enjoy reading such posts, but I sure do like doing them. I just had the urge to do a purple smokey eye. I find that purple is such a lovely colour to wear if you have brown eyes. With the festive season truly here, this would be a great evening look. Now let's get to it…


I just used my MUFE HD foundation all over the face and down my neck. Used my well loved MAC studio finish concealer in NC42 to cover my blemishes and bags. On the tops of my cheeks I used Illamasqua's powder blush in 'Create'.


I primed my lids using Urban Decays primer potion. Then applied the Avon supershock eyeliner in 'Plumful' to the inner half of my lid to intensify any colour that I put on top of it.

Using a flat eyeshadow brush I packed my Inglot shadow in (the purple) '446 Pearl', (sexy name ;-)) onto the inner half of the lid, where the eye pencil was.

Then using the other side of the brush I packed on NYX shadow in 'Sensual' and placed it on the outter half of my lid. I dragged any excess underneath the eye.

Using a pencil brush I picked up, what I have labeled as, (3) from my sunset sleek palette and lightly placed it along the crease of my eye to add a hint of warmth to the eye.

Using my Inglot shadow in (the gold) '405 Pearl' I placed the colour on the inner corners of the eye to draw some light in.

Finally I thinly lined my upper eyelid with the Collection (2000) Extreme Eyeliner in black, used my Avon Super shock eyeliner in black in my waterline and applied my No.7 Extravagent Volume mascara.


I just smudged in this No.7 lip liner in 'Melon'.

And there you have it. Now looking at it I may have smudged some black shadow on top the liner that I did and maybe dragged some black underneath the eye as well, but it just depends where you are wearing it. Hope you guys liked it! =D
