Video: Purple Rain Makeup Tutorial


Yo!

I hope you had a great week and you are having an better weekend.

My lovely bestie gave me an eyeshadow palette for Christmas, the Sephora Pro Lesson Palette and I fell in love with it instantly. I decided to create a dramatic look with this product. suitable for night time glamour. I even filmed a tutorial! Eeek! The video is further down this post.

If you are going on a date/partying this weekend, you might want to give it a try with any similar colour eyeshadows you have in your collection.






Eyes


Products Used


  • Eye Primer- Urban Decay Primer Potion Original
  • Lid, Lower Lash line, Crease, Brow bone & Inner Tear Duct- Sephora Pro Lesson Palette (colour 1,2,3 respectively)
  • Eyeliner- L'Oreal Superliner Carbon Gloss

Ignore all the stray hairs on my brow bone, need to make a threading appointment :-)




Lips


Products Used
  • Mac Magenta lipliner
