Drugstore Makeup Tutorial: Purple Smokey Eye for Evenings Out!

Posted 5 years ago - by: Kate Faulhaber

Eyes: Apply an eye shadow primer to make sure your eye makeup lasts throughout your night. An optional step is to pat on a purple cream shadow as a base to brighten your other purple shadows. On top of the base, apply a light purple eye shadow with a flat shadow brush. On a fluffy eye shadow brush, apply a dark purple through your crease. With a pencil brush, apply a bit of black eye shadow in a V shape to your outer crease blending a bit onto your lid. Keep building and blending the dark purple and black until it’s perfect. Now, apply a black pencil eye liner to your upper and lower water lines.Take your favorite liquid or gel liner and line your top lash line with a thin to medium black line. Curl your lashes and apply a black mascara.

Face: Apply your favorite foundation or tinted moisturizer. If needed, add concealer to areas of redness or dark circles. Set it all with a translucent powder or powder foundation so nothing moves. Apply bronzer to your temples and the hollows of your cheek bones to give your face more dimension. For blush, I’d recommend a light peach tone. You can also add a beige toned highlight to your cheekbones and cupid’s bow.

Lips: Line your lips with a nude lip liner. Now apply your favorite nude or light pink lipstick.
