MAC Purple Smokey Look

Hi Bellas,

Sorry about no post yesterday.  If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I was swamped yesterday.  I had an amazing opportunity to work with Celebrity Makeup Artist AJ Crimson to prep clients for the Soul Train Awards, eek!  I'll make sure and do a complete post on my experience later.  Needless to say, it was an extremely busy day and I didn't get a chance to get a post up - no worries, because I'm back with another tutorial!  One day I happened to come upon an old blog post while searching for a post for one of my readers.  I saw the look and thought, hmmm I liked that one!  I decided to do a tutorial for it :)

The look was inspired by my previous work on a client.  I tweaked the look a bit to fit my smaller eye shape but most of the products are the same.


Check out my video tutorial!


The final look!  I used my camcorder to take the pictures which explains why it's not as clear as usual...just trying something new.  Check out the video for more crisp footage.
