Smoky Purple – Makeup Tutorial


What I used for this look:
Maybelline FIT ME Foundation
LA Girl Pro Concealer
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Makeup Revolution Sculpt and Contour
Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave Palette
NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Embellishment

Lets Get Started:

I purchased some new makeup recently and felt so inspired to try out some new more daring looks other than my everyday nude makeup. In the Makeup Revolution Fortune Favours the Brave palette their are many beautiful purple/mauve shades I was dying to play with. Although the palette as a whole didn’t really please me I do love these purple shades a lot. Firstly I primed my eye with my concealer and powdered my lids with the colour ‘creme’, an amazing yellow toned matte shade. I then created a subtle creae with ‘buffer’ and ‘latte’, these two together work really well for creating more depth in your eye. One thing I struggle with is creating a prominent eye look as I have such hooded eyes, although I think using bright colours such as purples and pinks really help to make it stand out more.
After everything was blended nicely I dived into the purples. First I went subtle with ‘winning’ (ok how stupid are these names?), the lightest purple shade. I took it all over my lid and also in my crease. Then I went in for the kill with ‘Drama Queen’ an extremely pigmented dark purple matte shade, and buffed it throughout my crease and my outer corners. After blending for what felt like an hour I went back in with my crease colours to create more of a blended transition. I added a bit of sparkle with the most amazing pink/purple shimmer shade called ‘Fav0ur’ and finished off the look by smoking out my under eye with ‘drama queen’. I added a thin line of liquid eyeliner and used my all time favourite mascara the Max Factor False Lash Effect (HOLY GRAIL)!

After this I went and applied the rest of my face foundation, for a tutorial on how I create the most perfect base EVER read my ‘Photo-Ready Makeup‘ post. I contoured, highlighted and just completely transformed my face then moved onto lips. My NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick is my absolute fave formula liquid lipstick I have ever had to use, I will be doing a review on some NYX purchases soon so stay tuned! The colour ’embellishment’ is a grey toned purple. I actually purchased this colour by accident and would have much preferred more of an everyday nude, at least it challenged me to get out of my comfort zone.

And thats the end, hope you enjoyed reading this. What are your thoughts on this look? Comment below I would love to hear your oppinions and suggestions, don’t forget to follow me for regular posts! Thanks for reading. X
