Makeup Mondays: Purple Haze

I hope everyone's having a Marvelous Monday so far! As promised I'm trying to stay consistent with trying a new makeup look every week. And since I finally purchased my cute little Coastal Scents Palette, it makes it that much easier to explore & play around.

Once again I'm a beginner when it comes to venturing outside of my normal everyday look, lol I tried! So if you have tips or critiques please share them!

I call this look "Purple Haze", I wanted to create somewhat of a smokey look but once I got the brush in my hand it took a mind of its own! LOL!

Here's how I got the look:

1. I started off by lining the inside & top lid of my eyes with a black eye pencil by Fashion Fair.

2. I used 4 different colors from my palette. Then I lined the exterior underneath my bottom lashes & my inner eye with a shimmery ice blue color.

3.  Next I chose a medium purple and brushed it against both eyelids, covering the surface.

4. Then I blended the top lids & corners with a royal purple/blue shadow.

5. The final shadow I used was a shimmery black and applied it in the outside corners of my eyes.

6. Lastly I coated my eyelashes with a black mascara by Avon.

Kinda funky for a night out on the town hunh?


  1. This is so fab! I love this purple design and it compliments your skin tone perfectly. Kudos! Another job well done!

  2. That is GORGEOUS! I love eye makeup (I'm a bit of an eyeshadow whore) , especially purples... Fab!
