Smokey Violet

Hey everyone!

Purple eyeshadows sometimes can be tricky, depending on how you choose your purple colors. Today, I am going to show you how you can pull of purple eyeshadows by making it wearable, even for everyday look perhaps.

Let's get started..

steps by steps

  1. If you want your eyeshadows to stay all day long, prime your eyes first with an eye primer. But this time, I was priming my lid with MAC Paint Pot in Fresco Rose. This is not available anymore, but NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk is basically the same with Fresco Rose. 
  2. Apply the purple eyeshadow from MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Duo in Earthly Riches onto your lid up to your crease, using Sigma E55. This eyeshadow duo is not available anymore, but you can use MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow Duo in Pretty & Prim, the darker burgundy purple side. However, any plummy burgundy purple eyeshadow will work!
  3. Apply the same eyeshadow onto your crease using Sigma E35
  4. To make it look smokey, apply MAC Eyeshadow in Shadowy Lady onto outer corner with Sigma E35. Then, blend it with Sigma E40
  5. Apply a little bit of MAC Shadowy Lady in your lower lash line with Sigma E30
  6. Line your upper lash line and water line with Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx
  7. Curl your lashes and apply COVERGIRL Lashblast mascara in Very Black
You're done with the eyes! Keep reading for the face tutorial...

For the Face

steps by steps
  1. Apply Lioele Triple Solutions BB Cream with Sigma F80 all over your face. 
  2. Cover your dark circles or any imperfections with Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium. Dab it on with Sigma F70, then blend it with your ring finger. 
  3. Pat your face powder (no matter it is loose powder or pressed powder) with a powder puff evenly all over your face. Focus on your T-zone area, where your most oily part is. FYI (if you did not know yet, T-zone area is from your forehead to your nose bridge. See how it creates a "T?") I used Palladio Rice Powder in Natural
  4. Contour your cheeks, temples, jawlines, and neck with Benefit Hoola Bronzer with MAC 109
  5. Sweep a radiant pink blush, like Smashbox blush in Radiance in the apple of your cheeks, using MAC 109 again. 
And there you have it! 

See how wearable it is?
