Purple Haze

Today I wanted to do a look that would bring out the green in my eyes, so of course I went for purples :) I really love these colours, and I think using different toned purples actually works really well. When I first started experimenting with makeup, I kind of thought you just had to use a light colour on the lid, and a darker version of the same colour in the crease. Now I think blue- and red based purples work well to make a more interesting effect.

I used some shades from Urban Decay's Ammo Palette, plus BTFE Big Ego, which I saw swatched on my tiger lily's blog and instantly had to pull it out and use it. Such a pretty shade.

Products used

UD Last Call (metallic red-purple) - lid and lower lashline
BFTE Big Ego (dark blue purple) - crease/outer corner
UD Grifter (lavender with silver glitter) - inner corner/ inner crease area
black mascara


  1. You have gorgeous eyes! Great look. =]

  2. The lid shade is lovely. I really like using different purples too :)

  3. I love the colours you used here! I enjoy how you blended it outwards, looks fabulous!
