Gold and Purple Eyes

Hi everyone :)
I decided for this post, to do a look I wear from time to time, especially when I go out.

Here are the products I used:

Start off by, of course, priming your eye.
Apply NYX Pencil in Milk all over the eye, right up to the eyebrow and on the bottom lash.
Blend with your ring fingers.
Apply UD Half Baked using a MAC 217 all over the lid of the eye.

Take an eye smudge brush and apply UD Psychedelic Sister to the outer edge of the eye, going into the crease and also taking it onto the bottom lash. Doesn't have to be neat.

Take a fluffy brush and blend out the purple, getting rid of the hard edges and lines.

Apply some eyeliner. I'm using the new Maybelline Eyestudio LastingDrama Gel Liner. 
Apply with the brush and take it slow, there's no rush and you can achieve exactly how you want it. Create a flick. Take it onto the bottom waterline and crease a small triangle near the tear duct. 

Apply your mascara - I'm using Smashbox Full Exposure.

Put on your concealer, foundation, powder and blush. I'm using Maybelline SuperStay concealer, Chanel Vitalumiere foundation, MAC Super Fix powder and the light blush from my Blink+Go Palette.

On the lips I'm putting on Sleek Pout Polish in 942 Powder Pink. I also filled in my brows using the UD Brow Kit in Honey pot.

And here's the finished look:

I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

  1. So nice! The purple & gold compliment each other really well x

    1. Gold & Purple look amazing today, they really contrast! I love it xx

  2. the finnished look is pretty gorgeous, did get worried as i was scrolling down as i couldnt see the 2 colours together but i love it

    1. Haha, yeah I never thought Purple and Gold would go together but it does after a bit of blending. If you changed the black eyeliner for gold on top it would give it that little something for going out with too! xx
