FOTD: Tarte - Purple Smokey Eye


This is a purple smokey eye look I created using the Tarte Jewelry Box.  You can check out my swatches here!

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)
Brows are filled in using Bobbi Brown e/s in Mahogany.
