Dark Purple Smokey Eye

1_03 1_032

Here’s a dark purple “smokey” eye using Ardency Inn Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigment in Royal. I am absolutely in love with all of their pressed pigments. They’re rich in color, opacity, buttery, easy to blend, and they’re long wearing. I recently ordered another one of their pigments so once that arrives I will do my overdue swatches post.

In this look I also used the black and grey eyeshadows from Maybelline’s The Nudes Palette for the outer corner area. I wanted the purple to really stand out so I decided to have three layers: the purple shadow from Rimmel’s State of Grace Quad, Milani’s Bella Purple from the Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow collection, and then on the top was Ardency Inn’s Royal.  I decided to go without eyeliner because I thought it would be too overbearing and take away from the purple. That’s all for now, peace to the outt.

Dramatic Black and Silver Cut Crease

Here’s a classic dramatic black and silver cut crease. I didn’t have loose glitter so instead I used a Wet N Wild Color Icon Glitter Single in Spiked and let me tell you, never again. It was so difficult to use and it would just stick to the brush and the few product that actually stayed on my lid would come off or move when I would try to apply more. The product never actually dried completely so I was constantly checking to make sure I did not have glitter on my crease or browbone area. I tried applying falsies but I failed once again. Does anyone have any quick tips for applying falsies?! I desperately need some advice. Thanks and peace outtt!
