I decided to do a bit of a soft purple smoky eyelook for Valentine’s day. I’ve used mostly high street, more budget friendly options. I used the Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser primer all over and the Smashbox Photo Finish Lid primer on my eyelids. I then used the L’Oreal Lumi Magique to colour correct the blueness under my eyes. For base I used the L’Oreal True Match foundation in Rose Ivory. I blended it in with the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge. I set my face with the Urban Decay De Slick Mattifying powder.
On my eyes I’ve used the cream shadow from the Tarte BeMattenificent palette, all over my lid. I then defined my crease using the taupe shade, using a fluffy blending brush. I packed on the Star gazer eyeshadow in Peach Flush on the inner third of my lid and Star Gazer Purple Flush on the outer two thirds. I blended into my crease again, making sure there were no harsh lines. I darkened the outer V with the dark plum eyeshadow from the Tarte palette, blending it into my crease. I create a flick using the Jordana Fabuliner in black, setting it with a black shadow. I took the purple flush along my lower lash line and then the dark plum shadow lightly over the top. I took the Jordana 12H Made To Last liner in black, along my lower lash line and my top and bottom water line. For mascara I used the L’Oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24H in black on my top lashes and the Clinique bottom lash mascara on my lower lashes. I filled in my eyebrows using the NYX Micro brow pencil in Ash brown.
I contoured below my cheek bones and along my jaw line using the NYC blush in taupe. For highlight I used the Bourjois Java Rice Powder, I popped this on the tops of my cheeks, nose, top of my lip and the high points of my forehead. I used the Essence Matt Touch blush in Berry Me Up as my blusher. For lips I went with Urban Decay lipstick in Rush. I set my face using the L’Oreal Infallible fixing mist.
That’s the finished look! If you’d like to see how I created this look you can check out the video below.
