Hi Beauties ☼
Recently I’ve been loving purple liner, yes, I’m being more adventurous with colour, hooray! 🙂 I have found having a subtle pop of purple on the eye really brings out my green eyes, which I LOVEEEE!!
How to get the look…
For the face I used my beloved Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Buff, I applied this using my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This is my favourite way to apply this foundation as it looks most natural & pretty flawless! To cover my under eye circles & any blemishes I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (love this bad boy!!) To set those in place I used my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent. Even though my skin is drier these days I still set my base so it stays all day! To add dimension back into the face I lightly contoured my face using my Benefit Hoola bronzer.
To achieve a subtle purple smokey eye I started off by lining my upper & lower lashline with the Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner in Funky Violet. This is such a beautiful colour & compliments green eyes really well! To add a bit of smokiness to the eye I pushed the colour ‘Regal’ from my Sleek Au Naturel Palette into the upper lashline. I then used a fluffy blending brush to smoke this out, theres no technique to this, just apply a line of the shadow on your upper lashes & smoke it out towards the crease of your eye. Most of the colour should be at the base!! To finish off the eyes I added lashings of mascara.Brows
As usual I just brushed through my brows with the fabulous Benefit Gimme Brow. I love how amazing this looks in my brows, it’s so natural & defining! 🙂
For the lips I used a new product, Bourjois Rouge Edition in the shade 18 Violine Strass. I absolutely love this colour, its a pretty berry shade with a shimmer through it (not very noticable on the lips!). I can see this being my new favourite!! 😀
I hope you all like this subtle purple smokey eye as much as I do.
