'Pinky Purple' Look

'Pinky Purple' Look

First off, I'd like to say I'm back and I missed you guys so much! I had a great trip to Istanbul, Turkey! It's a beautiful place to visit and this was my second time there (for work). I wasn't wearing any makeup for a week and so I wanted to jazz it up a bit. This is a look using purples and pinks and black.


I started off with Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid up to my brow bone as my primary base.

On the tear duct, I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
Next on the inner lid, I applied MAC Cool Pink Pigment (matte light pink).
Then on the middle of the lid, I applied MAC Process Magenta Pigment (matte bright pink).
On the outer lid and crease I applied MAC French Violet Pigment (matte medium purple).
For the outer V I used MAC Black Black Pigment (matte black).
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud. I am trying to grow thicker brows at the moment.

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Creme Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with Loreal HIP Creme Eyeliner in Black and Inglot #88 (light sky blue) Gel Eyeliner.
On my lower lashline I also smudged a bit of Inglot #82 (purple) Gel Eyeliner.
I used MAC Opulash Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Smashing Eyelashes for effect.


MAC Blooming Lovely Lipstick and MAC Fab Frenzy SuperGlass.

I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe with MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes. I set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used MUFE #12 Sculpting Blush for my cheeks.

    @ Lora...One word - Tape...LOL! I use a bit of tape on the outside on my eye towards my brow. This keeps the line sharp once it's removed.
