LOTW- Purple Smokey Eye

photo (33)

Everyone loves a smokey eye. I have touch on a daytime smokey eye (you can check out that look here if you have a moment), and most everyone is familiar with traditional smokey eye. Since the color of the season is Orchid, or as most of us call it…purple. I thought that I would so a purple smokey eye. Last week I did a green eye look, but purple is my favorite color to play with. I use it a lot in my looks, with my hazel eyes, it makes the green in them really pop.

Materials Needed:

  • Too Faced Boudoir Eyes
  • Black Eyeliner- A kohl pencil
  • Mascara
  • Maybelline BB Cream
  • Bobbi Brown blush in Antigua
  • Bobbi Brown lippy in Pale Beach #15

Steps-

Step 1-
Apply “In The Buff” all over eyelid; from lash line to eyebrow. This will give us a nice base (canvas) to work with.

Step 2-
Apply “Voulez-Vous” on your eyelid; from lash line to crease. You will want to start the color on the outside corner and work your way in, take it about two-thirds of the way in.

Step 3-
Apply “Birthday Suit” on the inner third of your eyelid; from lash line to crease.

Step 4-
Apply “Lap Dance” in your crease. You will use this to smooth out any harsh lines, and to blend everything together. Using windshield wiper motions.

Step 5-
Apply “French Tickler” along your top lash line.

Step 6-
Line your lower waterline with the Black Kohl pencil.

Step 7-
Apply “French Tickler” along your lower lash line; starting at the outer corner bring it in about a third of your lower lash line.

Step 8-
Apply your BB cream by stippling it onto the areas that need more coverage (under your eyes, around your nose, the area between your eyebrows, and your chin). Then blend in with large circular motions. I apply my BB Cream or foundation AFTER my eye makeup on darker looks like this, in case of fallout. While I have very little fall out with Too Faced in general, it drives me nuts when I get my foundation perfect, to then have it ruined because I have dark fallout that won’t just sweep off. 

Step 9-
Apply Bobbi Brown Blush in “Antigua”. You will apply a very light layer of this starting at your hair-line, and sweeping down your cheek bones. Then using circular motions blend it in. Then take the color up your hair-line towards your temples. You will want a very light blush, that will frame your eyes.

Step 10-
Apply Bobbi Brown Lipstick in “Pale Beach #15”. If you are going this heavy on your eyes, then keep the look balanced by keeping those lips a nude color.

Step 11-
Last, but never least, curl your eyelashes and apply mascara. 

This is a look that I wear often, when the hubby is taking me out. How about you? Is this something that you would wear, or is it a bit to dark for you? Let me know. Also let me know if there is a certain look that you would like me to talk about.
