Purple Smokey Eye Prom Makeup Look

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted something and I apologize! I have been super busy with assignments. You might have also noticed that I did not put up a July Favorites post and that is because I will be combining my July and August favorites in one post. Today’s post will be a prom inspired makeup look, which for those of you who are past the prom stage can use it for a fancy outing or special event.  I love this look, because it is simple to do and it works very well with brown eyes.  Be sure to check out my previous post as well on my tips for Prom here  As always the first part will consist of the face makeup and the second part will cover the eye makeup.

  1. So I started off by priming my face with the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser.
  2. I then applied my concealer, I find that applying it before the foundation works better to cover up my blemishes and I used the Essence Stay Natural Concealer in the shade Soft Beige. I just apply this under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose, on my forehead and on any blemishes I have.
  3. I then applied my foundation and used the L’Oréal True Match Foundation in the shade Sand. I love this foundation, because it is very lightweight.  You also want to make sure not to use a foundation that has a SPF in it, because it usually creates flashback in photos.
  4. To set my foundation I used the Yardley Absolute Translucent Loose Powder.
  5. I then did my contour with the Absolute New York Pro Contour Palette and used the same palette to highlight my face.
  6. To finish off the look, I went in with the Jordana Blush Powder in the shade Rose Silk.

 

The Eye Makeup

To create this look, I used the SMOKY Palette, the ELF Little Black Book (Warm Edition) Palette and the Essence Quattro (Denim 4.0) Eye shadow Palette.

  • I started off by filling in my eyebrows with the Smudge Brow Pencil in the shade Light Brown.
  • I used this brown color from the ELF Palette as a base color and placed it all over my eyelid.
  • I then used this purple shade from the Essence Palette and placed this on the outer corner of my eyelids.

In the inner corner of my eyelid I used this shimmery silver color from the SMOKY Palette and focused it towards the center of my eyelid.

I then used the purple color from the Essence Palette and placed it under my lower lash line and the silver color from the SMOKY Palette towards the inner corner of my eye.

For mascara I used the Essence Lash Princess Mascara. I did not apply any false lashes, but that is totally optional, I think it would look great with this look as well.

 

For lips I used NYC Lipstick in the shade Petal and topped it off with the Essence XXXL Lip Gloss in the shade True Love and I  did not want to go too dark with the lips, since the eyes are already dramatic, but this is totally optional as well.

And this is the finished look:

Winter Makeup Look 2

I did another winter makeup look and decided to share it with you guys.  As pointed out in my previous makeup post I am no professional makeup artist, I have just been loving experimenting with makeup, so I am still learning.  The first part will consist of my full face makeup (which I switched up a bit from the last post) and the second part will feature the eye makeup.

  1. I start off by priming my face with the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser.
  2. I then go in with the Avon Ideal Flawless Concealer Stick in the shade Neutralising Green to cover up my blemishes and I have found that applying my concealer under my foundation works better to cover up my blemishes.
  3. I then go in with the Essence Stay Natural Concealer in the shade Soft Beige just to ensure that my blemishes are covered up as much as possible.
  4. I also switched up my foundation and went for the Yardley Whipped Matte Mouse Foundation in the shade Natural Beige and I just apply this with a foundation brush.
  5. I then set my foundation with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Pressed Powder in the shade Natural Buff.
  6. I decided not to do any contouring and finished off the look with the Jordana Blush Powder in the shade Rose Silk, which I just apply on the apple’s of my cheeks.

The Eye Makeup

So for this eye look I actually used three eyeshadow palettes ( I know, I know irritating much?) The colors that I needed for this look were however found in these three makeup palettes, but if you have all the colors in one palette absolutely go for it!!  The palettes I used are the HD Nude (03) Eyeshadow Palette, the ELF Little Black Beauty Book (Warm Edition) Palette and the SMOKY palette (I have no idea what brand this is from) I got it from Five Below when I was in the US.

  • I started with my eyebrows and filled them in with the Smudge Brow Pencil in the shade Light Brown.
  • For a base color I used this light brown color from the ELF Palette and just placed this all over my eyelid.
  • I then used this dark brown color from the HD Nude Palette and placed this on the   outer corner of my eyelid, as well as in the crease.
  • I then applied this creamy nude color from the SMOKY Palette and applied that on my eyelids, focusing it towards the center of the eyelid.
  • As a highlight I used this white shimmery color and placed that on the corner of my eye, as well as onto the brow bone.
  • Next up I used a lighter brown shade from the HD Nude Palette and placed this in the crease, as well as extending it beyond the crease.
  • I then used the dark brown color from the HD Nude Palette and place it under my lower lash line.
  • For mascara I used the Essence Lash Princess Mascara.

For my lips I used an Avon Glazewear Lip gloss in a purplish maroon color that I made a bit lighter and set my makeup with the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray.

So I start off by applying the gold shimmery color all over my lid.

I then apply the pink shimmery color over that, focusing it more on to the crease.

I then apply a brown color in my crease, as a transition color and to add more depth to the look.

Next up I use the dark brown color in the palette and place this on the outer corner of my eyelids.

I then blend everything together.

As a highlight and to finish off the look, I use the gold shimmery color in the center of my eyelid and also add this to the brow bone.

For eyeliner I use the Essence Lash Princess Eyeliner.  Just look at the difference this eyeliner makes.  This is definitely one of my favorite eyeliners.

I then fill in my brows by using the Smudge Brow Pencil in the shade Light Brown.

To finish off my eye makeup, I use the brown color that I used in my crease and place it under my lower lash line and then go in with the gold shimmery color in the inner corner of my eyes. I then apply mascara to my bottom lashes.

For my lips I used the Essence Lipstick in the shade Barely There and I set my makeup with the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray and voila…

That is it for my winter makeup look…until next time
