Purple and Brown look + Glitter using Aromaleigh

It's been quite a long time since I've been wanting to try this colour combo. I've seen a small handful of ladies wear it and it looks really nice. I'm not a huge brown person as I feel it looks sort of poopy on know what I mean.
I used purple glitter that IRL fairly matched the purple shadow. But in these pictures, it looks totally different. So I guess my camera captured it differently than how it really looks. Oh well. Here it is.
I made zee earrings.
Eyes (all applied in this order):
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Detrivore Eye Primer (applied all around the eye, rubbing in gently with ring finger)
AL - thalia's return (applied to outer V, crease and lower lash line with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping)
AL - vigil of change (applied to upper lid with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping) 
AL - air & light (applied to inner tear duct with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
AL - snow (applied under brow with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping)
Kryolan Aqua color Liner - black (applied wet with water, using MAC 210 on upper lash line and extending out)
Avon Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Eggplant (applied to outer lower lash line, extending out with black liner)
AL - paranoia glitter (applied to lower lash line extending out using Graftobian GlitterGlam Liquid Skin Sparkle Clear Mixing Base and MAC 210)
CoverGirl Volume Exact mascara in very black
Ardell 118 lashes

Lips: NYX Round Lipgloss in Queen of Africa

  3. Your eyes look fantastic! This is a really great combo!

  4. Hey Beautiful!! I tagged you in a Tag on my page <3

  5. I'm not sure if I've ever paired purple and brown. Pink and brown is one of my favorites! Love the purple you used. Look turned out great!

  6. lol poopy. It doesn't look poopy on you but I know what you mean about browns. I think that's why I usually stick to golden browns if I use one cuz then I can say IT WAS GOLD!!! Even though it's just a brown in a gold mask. oOo

  7. I love the purple on the lid. It looks lovely on you.

  8. That purple is gorgeous <3 it goes great with the lips

  9. awww i love the combo! Usually i hate using browns b/c its so BLAH but i'll do it if i have something more casual on (like sweats and jeans)... NOT THAT I WEAR THAT ALL THE TIME haha.
