Purple Smokey Eyes

Hello there!

Thought I'd post one of my favourite looks - the purple smokey eye!
Use any equivalent you like to mine, but I used:

products used for purple smokey eye look

  • Hed Kandi Lash in Twisted Disco
  • *The eyelashes come with a glue but I prefer to use Duo Eyelash Adhesive Glue in Clear
  • L'Oreal Studio Secrets Green Eyes Intensifier 370
  • L'Oreal Color Infallible in Purple Obsession 05
  • Sleek eyeliner in Imperial Purple 266
  • L'Oreal studio secrets eyeliner for green eyes in purple (any purple eyeliner will do!) 

Brushes -Mac 275 Angled Shading Brush, Mac 231 Small Shader Brush, Mac 224 Tapered Blending Brush

Step One

Using your 275 or equivalent, take your smokey grey colour and apply to your eyelid
applying grey colour to eyelids
 Step Two
applying purple eyeshadow to lids
Using your 224 brush, apply the purple colour 3/4 across your eye, leaving the inner corner

Step Three
applying purple eyeshawdow under eyelids
Using your 231 brush, apply some purple under your eyelids for a smokey effect

Step Four
eyelash applicator to apply false eyelashes
Cut your eyelashes to fit your eyes, apply the glue to the eyelashes, and leave for a few minutes until it becomes tacky, then, using an eyelash applicator or tweezers, apply to your eyes, and set in place. Add any mascara if needed

Step Five
purple eyeliner along the eyelid



When the glue has turned clear, use your purple eyeliner and line the lids of your eyes, corner to corner

Step Six
purple eyeliner to inside lid of eyes
Apply your purple eyeliner on the inside lid of your eye

The final look......

  1. That's such a pretty look! It looks gorgeous on you! I think I'd fail at putting on the lashes, I have no patience! But I want to attempt the other stuff :)

  2. Noooooo you can do it!

    Buy an eyelash applicator, they're like £2 at superdrug/boots put the eyelash on it, apply the glue, and wait a few minutes until its tacky, the applicator makes it so easy to apply, I used to be rubbish at it lol :)

    Thank you for reading my post!
