Hey blog readers/followers!
Today I thought I would do a blogpost showing you how you can achieve this gorgeous purple smokey eye with a bright red lip. You can do nude lips if you prefer. I think this look is great for a party and for this festive season, so I hope you get some ideas from it and recreate it if you like it!
I firstly applied my eye primer (I used mac soft ochre paint pot all over the lid). I then went over this with Illamasqua cream pigment in mould (a dark purple) on my lid to give the eyeshadows more colour intensity.
With a flat brush I then packed on mac beauty marked (a matt black with purple glitter) all over the lid in a round shape. I then blended this out with the purple shade from the sleek ultra matt darks palette- taking my brush in circular motions to really buff out the edges.
I then took Blitz ( a metallic gold) from the urban decay vice palette and applied this in my inner corner and used anonymous underneath my brow. On top of blitz I applied some vaseline in the inner corner and then some gold glitter (the vaseline really helps the glitter to stick well).
Then to finish off the eyes I applied beauty marked on the outer corner of the lower lashline and blitz in the inner corner and half way through the lower lashline. I added some vaseline then gold glitter where I applied blitz and then applied cat liner starting from the outer half of my eye with maybelline gel liner. I applied Illamasqua fat pencil in fickle (a bronzey gold) on my waterline and then changed it up after with mac smolder.
For foundation I used Illamasqua rich liquid and revlon colorstay and collections 2000 lasting perfection concealor underneath my eyes and on any blemishes. I filled in my brows with Illamasqua brow cake in thunder and applied mac studio fix powder in nc55 as my contour and Illamasqua naked rose as my blush. For highlight I used Topshop sunbeam. To finish off the look I lined my lips with Illamasqua strumpet pencil and filled them in with Mac ruby woo.
