This look is using one of my favorite eye shadow colors – Purple! I love the way it looks with brown eyes. I had discovered a shadow that I had never used. Its a deep purple/plum color from Victoria’s Secret. Its VS Luminous Eye Shadow in Divine. I started with putting this over my lid. Next I took the L’Oreal #527 Sultry Seductress from the Colour Riche line and put the top taupe color into my crease and the champagne color along my brow bone. I used the purple from the quad as eye liner and also put it along my bottom lashes and then topped it with some of the taupe to add more of a metallic effect. Last – I finished it with mascara from Benefit’s They’re Real.
I really like how this one turned out and think it would be fun for a holiday party or even Halloween party.
Have a great day and thank you for stopping by Gracious Luck!
Its return of quick looks! It has been a while since I’ve sat back and played around with some eye looks. This is featuring a trio from Wet n Wild ($2.99). I used a couple champaign colors to transition but most of the look is using the trio. This is highly pigmented but fun to work with!
Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck today!
This quick look uses a broken Wet N Wild Trio. (Tragic story – I ordered it online and the top shade was shattered when I received it. I was refunded by the company but instead of throwing it out I decided to hold on to it and use the remaining shades.)
I think it is amazing at how pigmented these trios are – for under $3.00 they are a steal! If you haven’t tried them or used them for awhile – go back and check them out. I think you’ll be impressed!
The Trio is #334 ~ I’m Getting Sunburned
First off I started with my VS Pro Eye Primer, and then put the gold shade all over my lid and up into my crease.
Next I took the dark brown shade which comes out almost black on my fair skin and put some in the crease and blended it out.
Then I went back in with a bit more gold to balance it out and put just a little white along my brow line for a highlight since mine was smashed!
Next step was taking a wet liner brush and using the brown as my eye liner (seriously…doesn’t it look black!?!)
I also tightlined with it – after working the liner color into my lash line it sort of transferred to my lower waterline on its own so I finished the look. (Confession…this is the first time I’ve ever tried this and kind of liked it.) Finished with a couple coats of Maybelline The Rocket and the look is complete.
This is one of my new favorite looks – I’m not sure on tightlining again since it made my eyes pretty sensitive but the gold and brown combo was a fun look that I think will be making its way into my normal routine!
Thanks for stopping by and have a glorious day!
This look is using a duo from Victoria’s Secret that I got last summer. I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never used it. I fell in love with it in the store but never had the courage to rock this bright and bold of a color before. I stick with neutrals or purples that aren’t quite this shocking! However I decided tonight to “play” and here’s the look I came up with. First I started with my favorite primer – the Kat Von D High Voltage Primer – to lock this purple color in. Next I patted the purple color onto the lid and then put the black sparkle color on the outer edge and then blended it into the crease with a crease brush. This duo did have quite a bit of fallout so if you try a darker duo from VS – maybe do your eyes first and then foundation & concealer! Then I took a damp liner brush and used the black as my eye liner with a subtle cat eye (I’m still mastering this!) and finished with Maybelline’s The Rocket mascara!
Its my birthday month – maybe this look or some variation of it would be fun for a party!
Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck and have a fantastic day!
