Simple Purple + Taupe FOTD (with tutorial)

I’ve been trying to use up my old eyeshadow palettes lately and for this look, I used the Dior Jazzclub palette in Purple Jazz from last fall. You don’t have to use the same palette, just something similar with similar colours is good of course.

Face:

  • Jill Stuart Moist Silk Powder Foundation in 103
  • MAC Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach (Cheeks)

Eyes:

  • UDPP
  • Dior Jazzclub palette in Purple Jazz (shimmery taupe, shimmery purple and matte purple)
  • MUFE Aqua Eyes in 0L (Matte black)
  • Majolica Majorca mascara base
  • Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara
  • Also wearing GEO Angel Colour Brown circle lenses (review will come soon!)

Lips:

  • MAC Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick

Apply the foundation of your choice. For blush, if you want a lighter, summer look, choose a light pink, neutral or peach blush. If you want to go for more of a fall look, choose a berry, dark rose or plum blush.

For eyes, use a base like Urban Decay Primer Potion (UDPP) to make eyeshadows last longer and adhere better. Use a shimmery taupe as your base colour and apply all over your eyelid. Then use a matte purple and apply on your outer V/crease. Take a shimmery purple eyeshadow and line the outer half of your bottom lid. Use a highlight shade to shade in your inner V as well as the inner half of your bottom lid. Highlight your brow bone as well.

For lips, apply a light coral lip colour if you want more of a summer look, or a deep rose lip colour if you want a fall look.

And you’re done! I’m wearing Eki’s Elegant Key Necklace with this look.

And some of you have noticed I change all of my display pictures to this picture. Reason being is I usually look weird smiling with my teeth, but this one actually turned out kind of okay. So… here it is XD

What do you think?

  1. Purple looks really pretty on you (I think, I said this several times before already?), Sheila! And yep, you look super cute and pretty in the photo with a teeth-showing smile! I usually look awful when smiling with teeth in photos too, harhar… 😀

  2. You have a gorgeous smile. You should smile more often in your pictures – honest! 🙂

    The eyeshadows are so pretty. I love the combination of shimmery purples. It’s really pretty and perfect for wear anytime 😀 The lipcolor is fantastic!

I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments!
