Smoky Purples

Purple was one of my fist colorful eyeshadows I started using, when I was in high school. It's been my beloved eyeshadow color ever since, even though I don't use it as often as for example my neutral browns. Smoky eye isn't what I would usually go for, but if I do, I prefer it to be colorful. Hence why I'm posting this purple smoky eye today. In general, purple eyeshadows look bomb on brown eyes as well as green ones.

As always, I started by using caramel brown matte shade in the crease. In the outer corner I used cooler purple matte to give me some depth. On the lid I used warm purple matte.

I also applied a bit of a winged black liquid liner. On top I applied shimmery metallic purple shade with silver shimmers. Sparkle always makes everything prettier. Around the lower lash line I used purple kohl pencil and I also took it into the water line. I smudged it out with that warm purple matte shade. I also applied metallic shimmery shade on the inner part of lower lid. In the inner corner I used shimmery pink toned highlighter with cooler silver sheen.

I finished eye makeup with combination of two mascaras to give me definition as well as volume.

On the face I used my usual routine - foundation, concealer and powder. I also bronzed up my face a lot, because I'm a bit tanned on my body and I had to match it. I also applied more of a pink toned highlighter with a cooler silver sheen that reflects light well and matches my inner corner highlight. I wanted to keep everything else very nude, so I used more of a brown toned blush for just a hint of color.

On my lips I only used nude colored lip pencil with nothing else. Just something for a bit of definition and slightest color.
