'Edge of Royalty' Look
As requested by one of our own, Mercedes, here's a smokey purple look. Now you all may know of my love/hate relationship with purple looks...so I had to add a pop of blue to keep me sane. : )
I started off with NARS Smudgeproof Eye Shadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Eyeshadow in #02 Black (satin black) all over my lid and slightly into the crease as my primary base. Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
For the inner lid and tearduct area I used MAC Parfait Amour Eyeshadow (shimmery bluish-violet). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
On the entire lid and slightly into the crease I applied MAC Push The Edge Pigment (shimmery deep purple). MAC 242 Small Shader Brush
To deepen the outer V I used Rock & Republic Fatalistic Eyeshadow (matte black). Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
On the browbone area for blending and highlight I used the matte nude eyeshadow from the Sleek Storm Makeup Palette. Sonia Kaskuk Large Crease Brush
For my lower lashline I used MUFE #167 Eyeshadow (shimmery bright blue). MAC 228 Mini Shader Brush
My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush
I lined my upper lashline with Wet 'n' Wild Crème Eyeliner in Black. MAC #266 Small Angle Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Sigma Eye Liner - E05 Brush
I used MAC PlushLash Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Sense Erotica Eyelashes for effect.
For my lips I used MAC Blooming Lovely Lipstick (creamy purple pink) topped with MAC English Accents Lipglass (creamy pink).
I primed my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used MUFE Mat Velvet + Foundation in #70 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark - Sigma Round Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush.
I used MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre (satin purple pink) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and MUFE #1 Sculpting Kit for contour - Sigma Angled Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush.
