The Purple Smokey Eye

 Hello gorgeous!

I was playing around with colors, and came up with this look for you! 

Here's how you can get this look!

Step One: Apply primer or a concealer all over the eyelid all the way up to the browbone to prep you eye.


Step Two: Taking any soft black pencil, create a small "V" on the outer corner of your eye and extend the line just halfway.

Step Three: Take some matte black eye shadow on a fluffy brush and blend the line that you created with the pencil in a sideways motion along the crease line.

Step Four: Taking a plum shade on your brush, make another line on your crease, where the black line was. 

Step Five: Take a frosty white shade on your brush and use it as highlighter on your browbone.

Step Six: Taking a pink shade on your brush, make a fine line just above your crease line. This pink line would go between the highlighter and the purple shade on your crease line.

Step Seven: Take a shimmery grey shade on your brush, and apply it on your eyelid, below the crease. I also applied the same shade in the inner corner of my eye. I mixed a matte grey and the highlighter color to get this shimmery grey shade.

Step Eight: Taking the plum shade, I created a line on my bottom lashline, going just halfway.

Step Nine: Blend any harsh lines that you see! Making sure you clean your brush with every different line that you blend, or you'll end up with big blob of the mess on your eye!

Step Ten: Due to the shimmery shades that you use, you will have fall-outs! So use a wipe to clean off the excess!

Step Eleven: Put on false lashes.

Step Twelve: Line your upper lash line with a black eyeliner, creating a small wing. I used Bourjois Pen Eyeliner.

Step Thirteen: Apply mascara on your upper and lower lashes. I used MUA Mega Volume Mascara (Waterproof).

 And your look is complete!

 Here is a picture of the shades I used. The eyeshadow palette isn't a branded one, I just got a big palette with all the shades for practise :)
