Get The Look: Purple Rain


This smokey eye look is sultry but daytime appropriate, and the nude lip is universally flattering. Check out my step-by-step guide to getting this gorgeous look.

Prep the skin using Too Faced Hangover Primer and apply Too Faced Primed and Poreless Primer over the T-Zone to create a smooth base and to reduce any visible pores.

Apply MAC Studio Fix Foundation or your foundation of choice once the skin is primed.

Conceal under the eyes and using NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and set using a translucent powder.

For my highlight I used a beautiful shade from the Sauce Box Cosmetics ‘Crème De La Crème Palette’ and I swept 'Hot Mama' from the Balm over my cheeks.

The shade 'Subconscious' from the Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette created the perfect contour.

Shape and feather the brows using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in 'Medium Brown' and then I filled the brows using the Taupe shadow in the Bobbi Brown Brow Kit. I lightly applied the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to hold any of my natural brow hairs in place.



Apply MAC Paint Pot 'Painterly' on my eyelids to create a smooth base.

For my eyes I used shades from the new Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Shadow Couture World Traveler’ Palette.

With a small fluffy brush I swept the colour Soft Peach into my crease and to create the transition shade. Go backwards and forwards in a fast, light handed motion to blend together. For my outer corner and lower lash line I used a combination of Heirloom and Intense Gaze shadows. Once applied I went in with a clean fluffy brush to blend up into the crease. I then applied Pink Champagne (my new fave shadow ever!) on the mobile lid and the inner corners.

The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in 'Trooper' lined the upper lash.

Coat the lashes with NARS Larger Than Life Volumising Mascara and once dry and if desired add lashes (in this look I used Model Rock Lashes).

I prepped my lips using the Maybelline Baby Lips Balm in Lychee Addict (mmm lychee!) and then I went in with the Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Pure Hollywood' Liquid Lipstick.
