Halloween: Pink & Purple

Friday, October 15, 2010

I'm not even going to pretend that this look was a short or easy process. It took a while, a lot of products, and a LOT of blending. The basic look consisted of the hot pink in the first 1/3 of the lid, dark purple on the outer 2/3 and using the Violet pigment to blend the line between the two. From there I used Heroic (black) to start shading and deepening the outer corner of the look, but I also continued to use the Grape Pigment to keep it purple in tone. MAC's Soft Brown is a matte skin tone color and shading with that around all the edges of shadow kept everything smooth and blended. After finishing off an extended cat eye with the liner I used silver glitter on the lower lash line and under the wing of the liner. 

I decided after it was all done that because of the dramatic nature of the event I'd wear the look for (Halloween) I'd try a couple different bold lip combos to test the effect. The nude lip was just for contrast, but actually turned out really well. Hope you enjoy!

PS - In case you were wondering my coworker and I are going to be Roller Derby girls for Halloween. Our costume colors are pink, purple, and black, thus the look below.
