Purple Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial

Hey Dolls!

It's Fall here in America. Which means jewel tones are trending. So, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and create a jewel toned smoky eye. This tutorial will feature two jewel tone colors; those colors are deep purple and emerald green. This look will look amazing on people with green, hazel, honey, or brown eyes. It is simple but, a bit more time consuming than most of my other tutorials. However, this would be a killer night out look. Especially if you are experiencing fall like weather. So, with all that said let's jump into the tutorial.

Begin with skin prep:
  1. Complete your skin care as usual.
  2. Primer your face with your favorite primer.
  3. Prime your eye lids, crease, brow bone, and bottom lash line with your favorite eye primer.
  4. Apply lip balm to your lips.
At this time I usually complete my eyebrows. For sake of time and space I will not be posting my eyebrow routine here. However, I will link it below for anyone who is interested.

Onto the eyes:
  1. Apply a white or cream eyeshadow base to the ball of your lid. This will make the color applied on top appear more intense.
  2. Apply a dark brown base to the inner and outer corners of the eyes. This will ensure the color applied on top appear more intense.
  3. Apply a piece of tape to the outer edge of the eye. Make is resemble a winged eyeliner. This step will help create a more sultry look. It will also create crisper lines.
  4. Using a fluffy crease brush apply a medium brown color into your crease.
  5. Then take a flat shader brush and apply a deep purple color onto your lid. A shimmery or satin deep purple will work best for this look. You can wet the color if you would like. Applying the color wet will intensify the purple.
  6. Using a small, fluffy circular eyeshadow brush apply a matte, deep brown shade into the outer and inner corners of the eyes. Avoid your tear duct. In the outer corner wing the shadow out. Make sure it goes upwards. This will lift the eye and create a more sultry effect.
  7. Take a clean blending brush and blend the harsh lines between the purple and brown on either side of the eye. If you lose any intensity just apply more shadow and continue to blend.
  8. Once you are satisfied with the intensity of your shadows apply a emerald green eyeliner to your bottom lash line. It is up to you how far down the lash line you take the color. I personally like to take the color down enough that people can see I have a green shade under my lash line. TIP: Apply your foundation and concealer before this step.
  9. Then take a pencil brush and blend out the green eyeliner.
  10. Once you are satisfied and there are no harsh lines apply an emerald green shadow on top of the pencil. This will set the color so it does not budge and it will also build intensity.
  11. Next apply a shimmery cream, white, or champagne shadow into the inner tear duct. This step will keep the eyes looking bright and open.
  12. Then apply a purple eyeliner into your waterline.
  13. Once the purple is in your waterline apply a matte cream shadow to your brow bone.
  14. Then apply a thin layer or black liquid or gel eyeliner to the lid. Create a winged shape.
  15. Once the eyeliner is dry remove the tape from the corners of your eyes.
  16. Next curl your lashes and apply your mascara.
Next up is the lips:
  1. Remove any excess lip balm.
  2. Apply L'Oreal Fairest Nude Lipstick. Any nude lipstick will due.
  3. Then apply NYX butter gloss in Tiramisu. Any nude-ish pink loss will due. 
That's all folks!

That was my Purple Smoky Eye tutorial. I love this look. It really is a gorgeous look for people with brown, hazel, green, and honey color eyes. This also looks flawless of people with tan to deep skin. Or people with cool undertones. If the green under the lash line is a bit too much for you then you can opt of it. If you would like to switch up the purple shade with a blue or green or any other color, feel free. This is just a inspiration look. You can take it anywhere you want it to go. Makeup is truly about having fun and expressing yourself.
