Summer Purple Eye Look with Makeup Geek Shadows

I decided to play around with some color and turned to my Makeup Geek shadows to create this purple plumy look. I finished it off with a purple liner and lots of mascara. What better time than now in the summer to incorporate colors to your look.

For my face - First, start off with a clean and freshly moisturized face. I primed my skin with Too Faced Primed and Poreless, especially around my nose as I have more evident pores there. I tried out the Lancome Miracle Cushion  that day, I'm in the color no.4 - for those of you who order from Sephora, you will see that they offer a broader range of colors and their codes are identified differently then The Bay. I was told that this was due to the US method of coding their colors, vs the Canadian. The Canadian has a smaller range. The concealer of choice today was the NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger. To set the undereye, I used the Laura Mercier - Secret Brightening Powder. To bronze up my skin, I used the Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder in 002 Sunlight. I applied it on my outer forehead, and lower cheeks. My blush is the Clinique - Cheekpop in Heather. It's a beautiful dusty rose pink, it's sheer yet buildable and no matter how much you put on, it'll never look cakey.

For eyes - I used all Makeup Geek shadows to create this eye look: Vanilla Bean all over the lid, Frappe on my crease, Twilight on my outer 2/3 of my lid and darkened the outer V and crease with Sensuous.

The Eyeliner was L'oreal Silkissime - Plum and my Masacara was Maybelline - Lash Sensational Mascara. It is a very good dupe for the Benefit - Roller Lash, and the cost of the Maybelline is only about 1/4 of it especially if you find it on sale.

Lips: was the lipstick from the Fifty Shades of Grey Makeup Forever Give Into Me Set.




I hope you enjoy this look!
Until next time - XO, M.
