Rainbow Pride: Purple

Hello my lovelies!

 

PurpleRainbowFace

 

Today’s chosen rainbow color contribution is purple, a personal favorite. I did stick with a nude lip, since I don’t own any cool toned purple lipsticks, but I think they idea of the series still shines through.

 

PurpleRainbowEyes

 

Today, I used the Kat von D Innerstellar palette, something I have reviewed and praised in the past. However, I need to make one small correction in my review. All of the shadows are pretty pigmented and look beautiful, EXCEPT for the dark purple I used in this look. I understand that purples are much harder to make, but this dark purple was incredibly patchy and did not blend as well as the other two purples in the palette. Maybe it’s because it’s darker, but the inconsistency does bother me slightly. Regardless, I still think this look turned out well, because my new Milani Palette came in and saved the day! Remember that piece of crap foiled one I hated hard on? Well, this vital brights one I recently received is actually pretty fantastic so far, and a great, inexpensive way to incorporate more color into my looks.

 

Let’s get started:

The Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the lids with a bone color or skin toned shadow of your choosing.
  2. Blend shadow one through the entire crease, blowing out slightly onto the brow bone. This is our transition shade to help blend out the purples.
  3. Place shadow two into the deepest part of the crease, and blend halfway in toward the inner corner.
  4. Pack shadow three all over the lid. Blend out any harsh edges with a fluffy blending brush.

The Lashline:

  1. Smoke shadow one across the entire lower lashline. I dragged this shade pretty low in order to help with the purples blending out, and to create a more smokey look.
  2. Blend shadow two from the outer corner, halfway inward, just like the top. connect the shadow to the lid.
  3. Pack shadow three onto the inner half of the lashline. Do not use a heavy hand with this shade, because we want to create a slight ombre effect.
  4. Place shadow four onto the tear duct for an added highlight. If you like a brow bone highlight, this would also look really cool there.

Other:

  1. Line the waterline with a black liner. If this gets messy, feel free to blend this onto the lashline for more intensity.
  2. *Optional* If you want a more intense look, you can always take the black shadow and pack it onto the outer corner.
  3. Curl and coat your lashes with mascara, apply falsies if you’d like.

 

That’s all I have for you guys today, please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a lovely Thursday. I’ll be back tomorrow with another color for this series.

 

Stay beautiful!

Purple Mock Cut Crease Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

PurpleMockCutCreaseFace

 

I don’t know about you, but I love the look of the cut crease trend all over Instagram. I think that if done well, they’re incredibly clean and look amazing on almost any eye shape. Unfortunately, I was blessed with a serious lack of space between my brow bone and crease, so I don’t think a true cut crease will ever be in the cards for me. Also, they take SO MUCH EFFORT! I’m all about creating looks that are achievable for anyone, regardless of talent level, and while I have the ability to do a cut crease, a large majority of people don’t.

 

PurpleMockCutCreaseEyes

 

Insert: The mock cut crease. I think the biggest trick to achieving this is very precisely winging out the shadows, and placing them a little higher in your crease than normal. Personally, I like to get all messy with my outer corners, so that I’m not worried about intricate blending on the lids. I always do my eyes before my base, which makes creating the wing very easy; I just clean up any mess with foundation. My absolute favorite color is purple. I’ve had purple hair, purple nails, purple accessories, purple clothes, you name it, I probably own it in purple. I’m still holding out for a purple Iphone though, Apple, get with my program.

 

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime and set the eyelids with the first shadow. A light shadow like this will help all the colors stand out even more. Always adjust based on your skin tone, or what you prefer.
  2. Mix shadows two and three, and blend into the uppermost part of the crease. Start to create a winged shape at the end.
  3. I borrowed the shade “Androgyny” from my JSC Androgyny palette, and blended that slightly lower into the crease and the outer corner, still following the winged shape.
  4. Focus shadow four onto the outer corner of the lid, and deepen the wing. Unlike most cut creases, we will not be dragging this into the crease, but you can if you want to. The reason I’m not doing this? I don’t want to have to carve out my crease with concealer.
  5. Take the first shadow and Pack onto the inner half of the eyelid. Clean up any messy blending that dragged downward from the crease.
  6. Using any black liner, create a thin bar across the lashline. You can totally wing this out with the shadow as well, but as I’ve discussed before, black wings aren’t really my thing.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Mix “Androgyny” and the fourth shade of this palette, and blend it 3/4 of the way to the inner corner.
  2. Tuck the first shade onto the inner corner and tear duct for a matte brightness. If you prefer a shimmery highlight, you are more than welcome to do so.

Other:

  1. Place a nude or white liner onto the waterline to add brightness and open the eyes.
  2. Curl and coat your lashes, apply falsies if that’s your thing.

Cool Toned Purples Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

CoolTonedPurpleFace

 

Because I am really pressed for time at this moment, I am going to make this introductory paragraph short and sweet by simply saying that I am FEELING MYSELF with this makeup look. I used two of the new Jeffree Star x Mannymua733 collab items with this look, one being the liquid lip “Daddy” and the highlighter “Eclipse”. I’ve never used a JSC highlighter before, and I must say, it’s glowing! I look like I have a purplish disco ball radiating from my cheekbones, and I’m not mad about it.

Let’s get started:

Eyelids:

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with a powder. I will be using only two eyeshadow brushes for this entire look, so be sure to wipe the first one off in between when you can.
  2. With a fluffy blending brush, blend “Cozy Grey” throughout the crease as the transition shade between the shimmers.
  3. Wet a synthetic shader brush with “Sweet Allure” and pack onto the inner third of the eyelid. Blend this slightly into the middle to start the ombre effect.
  4. On the same wet brush, Pack “sun Tweaked” onto the middle of the eyelid, blending into the first shadow, and extending slightly into the outer third.
  5. Same wet brush again, pack “After Dusk” on the outer third of the lid, blending in with the middle shade.
  6. With the same fluffy brush from earlier, blend out any harsh edges that the shimmer shadows may have created.

Lower Lashline:

1. Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 on the lower lashline. That easy!

Other:

  1. Line the waterline with either a white or nude colored liner.
  2. Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. I wanted a slightly more editorial look, so I would suggest no lashes in order to achieve this.

Soft Glittery Purple Eyes Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

 

 

purple-glittery-eyes

I had meant to post this a few days ago, however I’ve had a lot of tests come up lately that obviously took precedence. I know that I’ve done a look with the same palette that is similar to this, however this one is a more glittery approach to what I posted previously. Once again, it’s very easy to achieve, but looks fairly complicated once you’re done.

 

Let’s get started:

 

carlibybelpalette

 

  1. Prime the eyelids and set from lid to brow bone with shade one.
  2. Using a large fluffy blending brush, take shade two and lightly blend in the crease, creating a slightly winged out shape. Do not put too much effort into the wing, as we will be layering over this later. This is not a dramatic wing, think of this as a very smoked out version.
  3. Using shade three on a pencil or flat shader brush, place this on the outer v of the eye. Blend this out with a small fluffy brush, following the soft winged shape we created earlier. Layer this shadow until desired opacity is achieved.
  4. On the same small fluffy brush, take shade three again and lightly distribute this into the outer crease. Do NOT blend this toward the inner third of the eye.
  5. Using a flat shader brush, pick up shade four and pack lightly onto the first 2/3 of the eyelid. For added intensity, wet the brush before packing on the shadow. I did not do this personally, since I wanted more of a light wash of color.
  6. For the lower lashline, mix shades two and three together and run this along, 2/3 of the way from the outer corner.
  7. Take shade number four again with a pencil brush and highlight the inner corner.
  8. Curl your lashes to Jesus and coat them with mascara.
  9. NOTE: If you have any glitter in your crease that you would like to remove, take a mix of shades two and three, and blend into the crease once again. This will remove any glitter that may have strayed away from your lid.

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it helps me out so much. Also don’t forget to have a wonderful last week of September.

Stay Beautiful!

Purple Halo Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

PurpleHaloEye

 

Today, I have created for you an all purple/pink halo eye makeup. I recently saw a few instagram posts on this type of eye look, and decided to create a “beginner’s” version for all of you. This look is, once again, very easy to achieve, and can be used with ANY color range, even different color combinations like brown and gold.

Let’s get started:

PurpleHaloPalette

 

  1. As always, prime your eyelids and set with shade number one using a dense packing brush. Keep in mind throughout this tutorial that halo eyes involve A LOT of layering, so be patient!
  2. With a fluffy brush, place shade two in the transition area only.
  3. with a small packing brush, take shade number three and place carefully on the outer corner of the eye, as well as the inner third of the eye, but NOT in the tear duct. Lightly start blending each side out, creating a connecting arc with both sides in the crease. Be sure to keep the middle of the eyelid completely bare.
  4. Layer the purple shadow with the same method above at least three times or more, in order to achieve the most similar results to mine.
  5. For maximum pigment and shine, wet a medium lid packing brush with any spray (I prefer MAC Fix+), and generously coat the brush in shade four. Begin packing this on the middle of the eyelid, with as many layers as you would like.
  6. Once the Shimmer shadow has dried onto the lid, take your previous small packing brush, and lightly blend out the edges of the middle shadow, so that it melds with the dark purple.
  7. For the lower lashline, run shade two along the whole lashline. With a small packing brush, press shade three close to the roots of the lashes, about 2/3 of the way.
  8. With a pencil brush, put shade five onto the inner corner and the tear duct.
  9. Line the waterline with either a nude, white, or black liner (optional).
  10. Apply mascara to the tops and bottoms of the lashes, add falsies if you so choose.

 

And there you have it, one pristine purple halo eye. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it helps me out SO much. Also don’t forget to have a fantabulous weekend.

Stay Beautiful!

Matte Purple Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!

PurpleMatteEyeTutorial

Today I have a matte eye look, which is actually a first for me, since all of my previous looks contained a substantial amount of glitter. I am in love with how this look turned out, and I especially love how simple it was to create. Additionally, the palette I used is so affordable, that for once I would endorse buying it.

Let’s get started:

Mattepurple tutorial

 

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with shade number one from brow to bone.
  2. Take shade number two on a small blending brush, and distribute it throughout the crease, all the way to the inner corner.
  3. Using a small packing brush, take shade number three and place this on the outer corner of the eye. Blend this shade out, concentrating on the inner corner. Take whatever is left after blending and pull this into the crease.
  4. Using shade number one on another packing brush, place this in the empty area of your eyelid, from the middle to the inner corner. continue to pack up to three layers  for a brightened lid.
  5. For the lower lashline, mix shades two and three on a small packing brush, and run this 2/3 of the way across the lashline, creating an ombre effect by concentrating the most pigment on the outer corner of the eye, and softly dragging and blending the colors inward.
  6. Place shade number four on the inner corner of the eye, using a pencil brush. Be careful to keep this concentrated ONLY on the inner corner, as the lids are meant to be matte.
  7. Curl and coat your lashes to Jesus. Add false lashes if you wish.
  8. Enjoy your easy, affordable, and fashionable matte purple eyes.
