Purple/Silver EOTD

Today I attempted a purple/silver eye look using various pigments. I have become a purple lover lately; and that goes for both eye shadow and nail polish :)

These are the products I used:


Cory Cosmetics "Radiant Peach" (as under eye concealer)
Earthen Glow Minerals Cover Me Foundation in "Paris"
Cory Cosmetics Finishing Powder in "Rose"
Cory Cosmetics blush in "Foxy"
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in "Shimpagne" (as highlighter on cheek bones, bridge of nose, upper brow bones and chin)


UDPP as base
NYX Doll Eye Mascara in black (volume formula)
Eye drops for foiling and wetlining


Earthen Glow Minerals "Hjorprimul"- whole lid up to brow bone
◊Earthen Glow Minerals "First Frost"- inner part of lid, on brow bone and inner corners of the eyes
◊MAC "Deep Purple" - outer v, crease and under eye
◊Cory Cosmetics "Tantrum" - wetlined as eyeliner on upper lid

Shade descriptions:
  • Hjorprimul - a beautiful silvery color with a hint of purple and blue - whole lid up to brow bone
  • First Frost - ltd winter 08 color - no longer available - icy white shimmer - inner 1/3 of lid, on brow bone and inner corners of the eyes
  • Deep Purple - pearled blackened burgundy
  • Tantrum - black and blue with intense metal flecks of silver, violet and red - inspired by UD Goddess - foiled as eyeliner on upper eye lid


Amuse Long Lip Pencil - Sweet Rose
NYX Round Lipstick - Clio
Nouba Sweet Lips Lipgloss #16

And the end result?

Angle view...

I'm not at all happy with how this turned out. I think I actually overdid the blending part; resulting in that the lighter shadows almost have come off, and the deep purple just looks muddy :(
It is important to blend well, but perhaps not this well...ahem...

What are your thoughts on this look?

That's all I have for today; bye for now :)

I think it looks like a very soft romantic look but I can see why you might not be happy with the blending, though I don't think it looks bad. I think the colors are quite nice on you.
