Get The Look: Purple Daze
Last week I attended a blogger event and wanted to put my best face forward, so I created a glam look with a matte, smokey eye and lashes for days!
Below are the products I used to create this look so you can try it too!
Hydrate the skin using Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist and then apply Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer to the entire face to create a smooth base and to reduce any visible pores. Prep the lips using the Lush Cosmetics Bubblegum Lip Scrub and lip balm to make them soft and smooth.
Shape and feather the brows using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'Medium Brown' and with an angle brush fill in using the taupe shadow form the Bobbi Brown Brow Kit. Lightly apply The Body Shop Brow and Lash Gel to hold any natural brow hairs in place.
For my eyes I used shades from Lorac 'UNZIPPED' Palette but feel free to use your favourite eyeshadows to create this look.
Apply a neutral matte nude shade (I used 'Undercover') to the eyelids to create a smooth base.
With a fluffy blending brush apply a taupe matte shadow into the crease (I used 'Unconditional'). Go back and forth in a fast, light handed motion to blend and create a transition shade.
Once done, pick up a maroon matte shadow (I used 'Unbridled') and apply it to the outer corner of the mobile lid to add some depth. Then from the centre of the mobile lid to the inner corner use a flat brush to pack on a neutral matte nude shade (I used 'Undercover'). Then with a clean fluffy brush lightly blend to fuse the shades on the lid together and soften any harsh lines.
For the lower lash line, apply the same maroon matte shadow to the outer corner bringing it in towards the centre using a pencil brush. Then from the centre of the lower lash line to the inner corner, apply the same taupe matte shadow. Then lightly blend over the top of both shades with a fluffy brush to smoke it out.
Line the upper lash line with Sephora Liquid Liner and coat the lashes with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara before applying Model Rock Lashes #220 to add some lash drama! To define the lash line and hide the lash band, sweep the Sephora Liquid Liner over the top lash line.
