Hello there you gorgeous people!
I have LOVED reading your blogs and My Wish List has quadrupled hehe I want soo many products after reading all of your blog posts.
As a lot of my close & personal Twitter followers, Friends & Family know, PURPLE is my absolute favorite colour.
This is my first beauty post. I am a newbie so it isn't perfect but I hope in time they will get so much better :)
- MAC Face & Body Foundation (C5)
- Benefit IT Stick Concealer
Next step, blend the Face & Body foundation in really well. What I LOVE about this foundation is that it is so light, you only need a little pea sized amount for the full face.
It gives such a natural, flawless finish.

After blending this in well, I put the Benefit IT Stick on the 'dark circle' area to minimise the darkness and conceal blemishes.

I normally use Urban Decay primer potion as the base, but in this case I used the MAC paint in 'Stilife' as it's a creamy pink shade. Perfect base colour for the Purple smokey eye.

I bought it when it first came out at the amazing price of £4. It is now £8.50, but so worth it!

I started off with the white eyeshadow, you only need to use a little bit as the light purple is the main focus.
I went over the white with the purple, making sure I left the white eyeshadow visible in the inner corner of the eye.
|The white & light purple blended in well.|
Once both colours are on, use a good blending brush to add the darker purple.
I use the MAC 217 brush, which is amazing!
When doing this, I always start in the middle of the eye lid and work outwards, blending really well.
*It is important that you blend it well and outwards so that the smokey eye isn't too strong. You don't want it to look too harsh.*
|This is what you should end up with.|
If you want a darker smokey eye, then by all means use the Charcoal Grey shade. In this case the dark purple was enough to give the effect I wanted.
Finish it off with a top eyeliner ( I used Bobbi Brown Gel Liner) and work it into the bottom.
This is the finished version.
I love finishing this look off with a gorgeous pink/coral blush. Nars 'Orgasm' blush is perfect! x x
I hope you like this post! eeek.
Lotsa love Leesh of UnLeeshd x x x
