'Midnight Grape' Look

'Midnight Grape' Look

This was a quick look I did for a formal event. It's a simple smoky purple eye (which is on my list of tutorials to do) that of course matched my dress. The dress is from Bebe with shoes from Guess. There is some serious cleavage action going on here (at least as much as you can get from as small chest as mine). LOL! The lacy bra accents are actually from the dress and not an actual bra. Heaven forbid I show my bra in public! :)

I started off with NARS Smudgeproof Eye Shadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (creamy beige) all over my lid and slightly into the crease as my primary base. Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush

For the lid I used MAC Grape Pigment (shimmery dark purple) applied wet with MAC Mixing Medium. MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
For the inner lid, tearduct area and above the crease I used MAC Parfait Amour Eyeshadow (frosty light purple w/ pearl). Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush
On the outer lid and crease I used Rock & Republic Fatalistic Eyeshadow (matte black). Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
For blending I used MAC Wild By Nature Eyeshadow (matte camel). Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
For highlight I used Bare Escentuals Clear Radiance All Over Face Color (shimmery light pink). MAC 252 Large Shader Brush 
On the lower lashline I applied and smudged MAC Smoulder Eye Kohl Pencil (matte black). Cozzette Eyebrow/Mini Shader D230 Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Strut and MAC Embark Eyeshadow (matte reddened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Crème Eyeliner in Black. MAC 263 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Sigma Eye Liner - E05 Brush
I used Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Sense Vibrant Eyelashes for effect.

For my lips I used Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Silky Lipstick in #109 (creamy pink).

I primed my skin with Inglot Under Makeup Base. I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Skinfinish Natural in Dark - Sigma Round Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush. I used MUFE #12 Full Cover Concealer - Cozzette P350 Cylinder Concealer Brush - under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage -
Cozzette S150 Cylinder Setting Brush.

I used MAC Mighty Aphrodite Blush (satin berry peach) for my cheeks - Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour -
Cozzette Contour Stylist S135 Brush.
