Pretty in Purples

Here is a random look I did last week before going to work. I have been buying more and more bright, fun colors lately, and wanted to try out a purple I got. I ended up really liking the look, so I wrote down everything I used and took some pictures. I really like purples (as well as greens, golds and neutrals in case you were wondering) so this is definitely a look I'll do again. Here we go....

Here is what I did:

After my usual face makeup routine, I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese allover my eyelid as a base. I like to get a good amount on there and then blend it with my finger. Then I covered my entire lid with the Purple single eyeshadow from NYX. I used Aloha single eyeshadow from NYX in the inner corner of my eyelid and as a highlight. I blended this in pretty well. Then I applied Deep Purple single eyeshadow from NYX in the outer corner and blended it up into the crease. I blended this about midway and then continued to blend it out for a subtle smokey look. I used MAC Black Tied with an angled eyeliner brush (MAC 266) for my eyeliner. (This is my usual liner, I get the brush wet, then get the eyeshadow on it and apply it to my lashline. I find I have way more control with this than with liquid eyeliners and I can get a much finer line than with a pencil.) I finished my eyes with 2 coats of Buxom Blackest Black mascara (My favorite mascara EVER!) I used a very light amount of Bare Minerals Warmth on my cheeks for a little color and then applied Bare Minerals Glee over it to get the pinkish shimmer you see. On my lips is NYX Round Lipstick in Paris with a coat of Bare Minerals Lipgloss in Plumtini over it.

Here is a close up of my eyeshadow...

Hope you enjoy!  :)
