On Saturday I had a bit of time and was in the mood to play with make-up, so I thought I'd do a (very subtle) purple eye look, as I was off to watch the Dockers play in the AFL Grand Final. As I said in my last post, I am not a football follower, but thought I may as well jump on the Freo bandwagon, and it was an excuse to have a bit of a play with colour.
It's a very simple look with a champagne colour all over the lid, purple eyeliner smudged along the lash line, and a browny-plum colour in the crease. It's very subtle, and perfect for those like me who are a bit too scared to wear a full-on coloured eye look.
I realised when looking at these photos that I could have done it all with just the Naked 2 palette and purple eye-liner, but I was having a bit of a play with my make-up stash, and ended up using the MAC Illustrated Face Kit as well (you can read my post about it
Here's a quick run-down of what I did
1) Maybelline Colour Tattoo in "Barely Branded" all over the lid as a base.
2) "Booty Call" from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette on the inner half of my eye
3) "Plum Reduction" from the MAC palette in the crease.
eyeliner along the upper and lower lash line
4) Champagne eyeliner on the inner half of the lower lash-line (mine is from Shiseido, but has sadly been discontinued)
I smudged and blended it all together, added some mascara, and that was it!
I also used MAC blush in "Dame", a Revlon Balm Stain in "Crush", and painted my nails with Essie's "Bangle Jangle" which is a really pretty lavender colour.
So that's it!
I'd love to hear how you like to incorporate colour into your make-up look :)
I hope you're having a lovely day
PS - I'm sorry for the extreme close-up!! :p
