Using purple to create a dark smokey look can quickly get out of hand and start looking like a black eye! I've avoided this (at least I hope! lol) by making sure underneath my eye was kept bright and clean.
I usually put dark shadow under my lower lashes when the lid is super dark, but that would probably make me look like I'd been in a fight!
I kept the dark shadow under my lower lashes close to the outer corner, and left the inner corner pretty clean. I made sure to use extra concealer under the eye as well. I actually even added a little matte white e/s and a matte skin colored e/s under my eye to help conceal (lol, yes, I used WHITE e/s to conceal. I'm ghostly! lol).
Anyway, that's enough blabbering!
Main colors I used:
- Tarte Jewelry Box -
- A multicolored-shimmer, medium toned purple shade
- A matte dark eggplant shade
- A lighter lilac shade
- A matte off-white shade
- NYX e/s in White
- MAC e/l in Smoulder
- MUFE Aqua Eyes e/l in 0L (a regular black)
