Stage: Purple and Grey Eye Look



Here's the eye look done using Gossip, Stage Cosmetic's Five-Shade Shadow Palette that I featured yesterday.

Yes, it's simple - I like simple.

Yes, it's safe - I usually stay within boundaries. It may be fun but face painting is not my thing.

These are the products that I used for this look:


L-R:
Stage Five-Shade Shadow Palette - Gossip
GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner - Funky Violet
Stila Smudge Pots Gel Liner - Black
Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On - BK999


What I did:

1. Applied an eyeshadow primer (not shown) on the upper and lower lids.

Upper lid
2. Used a large dense eyeshadow brush to pack on the grey eyeshadow on the outer two-thirds of the lid.
3. Used a crease brush to apply the purple eyeshadow to 'create' a crease.


4. With a smaller eyeshadow brush, dabbed on some of the black eyeshadow on the outer corner.
5. Applied a thin layer of the white eyeshadow on the inner V and on the brow bone area (above the purple).
6. Used a blending brush to blend all the colours out.
7. Lined the lash line with the dark purple of Funky Violet from GOSH. Wing it slightly.
8. Tightlined with the gel liner of Stila Smudge Pots.


Lower lid
9. Coloured the lower lid with a hint of the purple eyeshadow, forming a big, vague outer V with the purple of the upper lid.
10. Lined lightly with Funky Violet

11.Curled lashes and applied mascara.



My reviews on three of the products used:
Stage Cosmetics - Five-Shade Shadow Palette (Gossip)
GOSH - Velvet Touch Eye Liner (Funky Violet)
Majolica Majorca - Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On Mascara (BK999)
