Holy Purple, Batman!

OK, I'll admit it... I love to *play* make-up. I will put on make-up to try out a look and then take it all off and go to bed. Like tonight. I saw a purple look that looked really pretty and I was so excited to discover that I had the same colors used so I had to try it!

(FYI - in case you hadn't read my previous posts on this, I love to watch Youtube make-up tutorials... so addicting!)

"Hot Royal Purple Eyes" by Youtuber xteener:

Here's my take:

(False eyelashes would have definitely improved the look, but I save those for special occasions only - too much effort for me!)

What I used:

MAC Mineral Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus
Pur Mineral Marble Powder in Pink

Urban Decay Ransom e/s
Urban Decay Fishnet e/s
Loreal HIP e/s Duo in Charisma
MAC Cork (brows)
MAC Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack / Loreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner in Carbon black (will post a comparison soon)
MAC Technakohl Liner in Graphblack
Maybelline Full&Soft Mascara

MAC Blankety lipstick
MAC Love Nectar lustreglass

On a side note, I am *loving* my new Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow box. Yes, I'm a MAC addict but I definitely try out other brands, too, and these colors are crazy gorgeous! My pics don't do it justice - the purple used in the main part of the lids is crazy vibrant! There are some really pretty neutral colors in the palette as well for more work-appropriate looks. Can't wait to try more looks with this!


  1. You would totally match Cassie's outfit today! She's sporting her new purple my little pony shirt and purple pants.

  2. Love Love Love this! I need to get the UB eyeshadow set (not that I need more eyeshadow, but so what, right?)
