Tutorial: Purple smokey eye


Hello everyone!

This post is going to be the purple Smokey eye tutorial which I promised earlier in my facebook page. First of all I hope all of you have already entered for my first blog giveaway J if you haven’t, check it HERE.
Let’s get started!

What you would need

  • An eye shadow primer. I’m using the one from elf cosmetics
  • Black kohl I’m using one from miss rose
  • A dark purple eye shadow
  • A black eye shadow
  • A matte nude shadow
  • Black liquid liner
  • Mascara
  • False lashes (recommended)

I have used the 168 eye shadow palette for this look. It has a lot of variety! CHECK HERE for the review for it!



Step 1

Prime your lids. Like I always say this makes your eye shadow look expensive and also makes your eye look lash very long. This is important if you have oily lids J


Step 2

Apply kohl all over your lid. Stop a little below your crease. You do not have to e precise with this as we will be lending it out anyway
Step 3

Lend away the edges of the kohl application. Use a light hand since it’s such a dark colour. To aid with the blending, use a little black eye shadow with your blending rush
Step 4

Apply the purple shade all over your lids with a flat eye shadow brush over the areas you have the kohl. The reason I have kohl underneath is this gives depth to the look and makes it Smokey.
Step 5

Apply black shadow to your outer V and smoke it out, this give a cat like look and also makes your crease deeper
Step 6

Apply the highlight colour underneath your brows and the inner corner of your eyes.
Step 7

Line your eyes with the liquid liner. Wing out the liner at the end to accentuate the cat like look. Apply mascara as well after curling your lashes
Step 8

This step really takes this look to a more glamorous level. Apply false lashes to makes your lashes stand out. I used half lashes as they stay more comfortable over my eyes. 

BEFORE and AFTER

And that’s it ! Purple is a great shade for brown eyes. It makes your eye colour pop J hope you girls love this tutorial and try it out!
