Silver Purple Eye Makeup Look + Picture Tutorial

This look was created using Archetype Cosmetics eyeshadows. As far as I know, they are discontinued as Archetype closed up shop. *shrugs*

These shadows are ridiculously sparkly! When I was creating this look, I giggled out loud more than once as many times sparklies were "poofing" around me and some of it was landing on my forehead and in my hair. Oh my...the spahkles! *drool*



Click below for picture tutorial!

 Start by applying your favourite eye primer. I used Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Eye Primer. Then apply a very sticky base (Sobe's Stick It!, Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girls Cosmetics Glitter Glue all work great).

 Apply Vagina Dentata to the outer 1/3 of upper eye area by patting.

 Apply Gloomy Sunday to inner 2/3 of upper eye area by patting and sweeping inward.

 Apply Antique Platinum to the inner corner by patting.

 Apply Gloomy Sunday to the lower lash line.

 Apply Vagina Dentata to the outer lower lash line.

 Soften the harsh edges by applying NYX Vanilla Sky below the brow and blending downward in a zig zag motion.

 Using a powder foundation or a matte skin tone shadow, soften the lower lash line by blending.

Mix Red Death with either water or an eyeliner sealant and apply to the upper lash line and wing outward.

 Apply Red Cherry Lashes #43 and black mascara to the lower lashes.

This is the complete look. I also patted some of TKB's Star Bite glitter powder in Cherika Moon, to the outer lower eye bone.

For the rest of what is on my face:
Eyebrows: Sobe Botanicals Fill Me In eyebrow powder Raven and Brunette mix (applied with MAC 266)

Lips: Morgana Cryptoria - Margarita

Skin MD Shielding lotion 
Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation - Light Ivory
Sobe Powder Foundation - Light Warm (applied with Coastal Scents bionic buffer brush)
Sobe Tinted Illusionist Powder (applied all over face with a large powder brush) 
Physicians Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls - Light Bronze Pearl (applied under the cheek bones to contour)
NYX Blush - Pinched (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line)
Physicians Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls - Translucent Pearl (applied just above the cheek bones to highlight)
