Purple and Grey Smokes

Hi Ladies!

Here is a make up look that I have been LOVING lately.  I was inspired to do this look because everyone is getting excited for fall and using deeper colors but I still wanted to hold on to that last little bit of summer with a pop of a bright color.  I hope you like it! :)  So without further adieu...

What I used:

Make Up Forever HD Foundation, shade #123, applied with a stippling brush.
Sephora Concealer quad under eyes.
Bareminerals Warmth as a contour on my hair line and in the hollows of my cheeks.
Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Light Nude.
Laura Gellar Blush-n-Brighten on cheek bones and bridge of nose as a highlight.
MAC Studio Fix Pressed Powder to set my T-Zone.
ybf beauty Automatic Brow Pencil in Taupe to fill in brows.


Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over lid and lower lash line.  Put a matte white shadow all over lid up to brow bone and in the inner corner.  Light pewter shimmer shadow on lid to just above crease.  (I used the "crease" color in the Velvet Crush Maybelline Shadow Quad.)  Then apply a medium purple shade into your crease. (I used a shade from my bh cosmetics 120 palette)  Again from the Velvet Crush Quad, use the "liner" (a dark charcoal grey) shade in your outer "V".  Lastly, apply your favorite black eyeliner and mascara.  I used Maybelline Stiletto liquid liner and then Lorac Mascara.


Buxom Big and Healthy Lipstick in Amsterdam (rosy nude) and Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Nude Lustre (peachy nude).

I hope you all love this look as much as I do!  It can easily translate from day to night and would be gorgeous on most skin tones!  Let me know if there is a certain look you would like to see featured in this blog, be it inspired by a photo, celebrity, theme, whatever!  Also let me know if you would like a video tutorial!
