Purple Eyes

Hey Everyone! I did a fun purple eye look the other day and received some good feedback from others! You can see the pictures above. Here's how I did the look:


  1. Cleanse and moisturize face (and eyes!)
  2. Apply a primer to the face after the moisturizer has soaked in
  3. Use under eye corrector (if needed) and concealer
  4. Apply foundation after the primer has soaked in
  5. Once the foundation has set in a bit, apply a setting powder--I used the MUFE HD powder
  6. Prime the eyes with MAC's painterly paint pot
  7. On the inner corner of the eyes, use the gold part of MAC's mineralized eye shadow duo in Odd Couple
  8. For the outer corners, use the purple part of MAC's Odd Couple mineralized eye shadow duo
  9. Line the eyes with MAC's Pearl Glide Intense Eye Liner in Designer Purple (a fav!)
  10. Use the MAC 266 angled eye liner brush to make a very thin line between the eyelashes and the purple liner. I used Bobbi Brown's Caviar eye shadow for this step. (This will really make your lashes pop!)
  11. Then repeat steps 9 and 10 for the bottom lashes, but use a light hand and only line the outer half of your eye
  12. Next, apply a lengthening mascara and top it off with a thickening mascara. I applied the thickening to the bottom lashes too.
  13. Add some bronzer--I used NARS laguna!
  14. Put a pop of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks--I used Bobbi Brown Pale Pink
  15. Don't forget your lipstick and gloss--I used MAC Viva Gaga lipstick and Bobbi Brown blossom tint
This is an easy way to add subtle color into an everyday wearable look!

Let me know if you have questions or would like to see another how to! What are you wanting to see? Any product reviews you're looking for?

Have a great purple evening!
