Smokey Purple and Black Look

This makeup look shows how you can easily add another color to transform the classic black smokey eye. I applied a purple color on the outer V and crease to frame the black on the lid. I also put some purple glitter along the lower lash line for fun. :) For the rest of my makeup, I stuck to contouring and highlighting (no blush) and wore a nude lip to keep the focus on my eyes.

– MAC Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre” (entire lid)
– MAC Paint Pot in “Blackground” (lower lid)
– MAC Pigment in “Dark Soul” (apply dry on top of Blackground on lower lid)
– Milani E/S in “Shock” (blend along outer V and entire crease)
– Milani E/S in “Storm” (blend color where Shock and Dark Soul meet; also apply on entire lower lash line)
– MAC E/S in “Brulé” (highlight)
– Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in “Metalhead” (entire lower lash line, on top of Storm)
– Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in “77″ (upper lash line)
– MAC Limited Edition Kohl Power Eye Pencil in “Feline” (lower waterline)
– Maybelline The Falsies Volum’Express Waterproof Mascara in “Very Black” (two coats on top and one coat on bottom lashes)

– Benefit Bronzing Powder in “Hoola” (contour) — I also used this to contour my nose :)
– TEMPTU AIR pod Highlighter in “301 Champagne” (upper half of apples and up towards temples)

– MAC L/S in “Myth”

I came up with this makeup look to match my dress that I wrote about last Fashion Friday.
