Makeup Forever Dramatic Smokey Purple Eyes

Hi Bellas,

How was your weekend? I had a fun one...Friday we went Go-Karting, Rock Climbing and Video Gaming for my boyfriend's birthday. I invited our crew and surprised him and he loved it. Saturday my friends had a cocktail party/soiree at their apartment so we dressed up and drank sangria, had munchies, chatted and played games. We used to have house parties but the carpet got uber trashed at our old apartment...so my former roomies have evolved into having grown up parties where the punch stays in the kitchen, lol. Sunday I went with my makeup mentor on a gig to do temporary tattoos using airbrush makeup and ink transfers. I was glad she let me come assist because temporary tattoos are another form of airbrushing which I'm trying to master. You could probably file it under the category of Body Makeup. A lot of large companies love hiring temp tattoo artists at corporate parties. It was fun and I think my tattoos came out pretty good!

Anywho, back to my FOTN. I finally got around to doing a tutorial using the best purple eyeshadow ever-the MUFE NO. 92 eyeshadow. I wore this look to the movies when I saw The Family that Preys on Thursday. I was a trooper because I didn't cry the entire time! That movie was uber sentimental too--and I'm a cryer! However, my motivation was to keep my makeup intact so I could film my Creamsheen/Suite Array Haul vid, lol.

The MUFE e/s is actually kind of hard to blend and apply evenly. I've done a couple of tries where I've removed my entire eye makeup because it didn't go on evenly. To help prevent this, make sure you apply a creamy base and then put a neutral eyeshadow all over the lid. I used vanilla e/s. The base shadow gives the MUFE shadow an easier surface to blend over.

This look is actually pretty basic but the pigmentation of the MUFE purple shadow gives it such a pop of color that it kicks it up a notch.

So without further ado, check out my video tutorial!

How did you go abt getting a MUA mentor? Do you feel its helped you? I love the purple, it looks like its glowing.

ITA with your opinion of "the family that preys", imo its Tylers best movie. Kathy Bates and Sanaa Lathan were awesome!

ooh great look ren! i've noticed (only by swatching though) that the mufe shadows oxidize or something ridiculous.. i put a pink shade on my hand. ohh vibrant and pretty and before my eyes it turned to a deep dull pink...? does the cream with a shadow over it as base prevent that? do you have experience with that?
