Quick Look – Another Purple Look!

PicsArt_1381680082928

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!

Quick Look – Bright & Bold Purple

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!

Quick Look – Subtle Smokey Eyes

PicsArt_1373813667996

Today I wanted to share a quick eye look from the weekend.  I was going out with friends and wanted to experiment with this eye shadow quad from L’Oreal Colour Riche in Sultry Suductress.  I’m sorry a couple pictures are blurred and I took them before I put on mascara!  I’ll work on that for next time I do one of these! I wanted to share the look – since it was casual t-shirt and shorts night out at a festival I didn’t want to go too dramatic but wanted to do something fun.  First I started with a primer – I’m currently using up Victorias Secret Pro Eye Shadow Primer. Next I used the top shade up to my crease. The second shade (champagne) along my brow bone and then put a little purple into the crease.  Lastly, I used a wet flat liner brush with the bottom graphite color to draw in my eyeliner.  When wet the graphite shade comes out almost black.   Since it looked a little harsh against the lid color I used a smudge brush to soften it a little.   Finishing touch was a couple coats of mascara.
