Purple and pink makeup

When we think of purple eye shade a lot of us think of our early days. Maybe when we were 10 11 years old trying on makeup for the first time. Back then blue and purple eye shadow was my life. 🙊🙊 well today I decided to yet again create a look involving purple eyeshadow. This time however I've made it a more grown up look. Adding contouring browns and shimmering hilights.

 Purple for those with green or hazel eyes is actually a really good colour to use as it's almost opposite green in the colour wheel meaning it will enhance and bring out greenish yellow pigment making the yes look more vivid. 

For this look I also kept the whole feel very girlie with pink rose lips, a purple gilded top and pinky purple earings. Here is a run down of the steps and products I did for this look:

First I started of with benefit primer perfection.
Then I applied foundation a mix of Estée Lauder double wear and maybellines 24hr.
I then concealed with collection 2000 concealer in light under the eyes and on any blemishes.
For contour I used my trusty sleek contour kit.
Blush I used natural rose from the natural collection at only 1.99 it's a bargain!
I hi lighted with benefits moon beam on my nose cheek bone chin and forehead.


For eye shadows I used the naked pallets sin all over my lid. 
I used virgin on the top of my brow bone for a hilight.
I then took a light lilac colour from a collection 2000 pallet and plied just in the outer section on my lid.
I then took buck from the naked pallet and contoured my eye crease lightly.
I also took this colour underneath dr my eyes. 
I then added husle from the naked pallet to the under eye and crease.

The husle added a more dramatic night look to the basic makeup Nd is optional depending on what look you are hoping to achieve, be it day or night time. 

Lashes and lips

For lashes I used a half pair of Demi whispie strip lashes which I cut in half just to add drama to the end of my lashes. I uses max factor false lash effect mascara.

For lips I used Estée Lauder double wear lip liner in Twany.
For lipstick I used max factors lip infinity lipstick in the palest pink shade they do and then a mid pink for the outer corners to give a slight ombré feel to the look.

Thank you for reading and hve a beautiful and blessed day ! 

Much love xx
