Updated with Tutorial: Mardis Gras Makeup - Dramatic Color and Glitter!

Hi Bellas,

Time for another tutorial!  I was playing around was some purple pigment and then it developed into a really pretty purple look with specks and gold and green - perfect for Mardi Gras.  For those of you who miss my dramatic, colorful Old School Ren tutorials, this ones for you!


Check out the video (finally up as of 2/8/13)!

Here's a quick shot of all the products used:

The key to this look is the fun glitter.  I'm totally obsessed with using glitter liner for some extra pizazz...except I don't use it as a liner.  Instead, I paint on the little glitter particles in a dabbing motion for easy, no mess application.  I definitely recommend the NYX Glitter liners - very affordable and comparable to high end brands.
In this look you could also add a bit more green...I Think it would be cool to pop green on your lower lashline to make it a little more festive.  The BF is from New Orleans and he thought there should be more obvious green and gold in the look but ehhh you get the point lol.

Here's What I Used:

FACE
MAC Blunt Blush
L'Oreal True Lumi Foundation
Tarte Hot Pink Blush from their 2012 Holiday Collection
Milani Multitasker Face Powder in Medium

EYES
Steelo Eyeshadow Base in Medium
PixiGlow Dust (Gold Pigment)
Wet N Wild Black Gel Liner
Milani Liquif'Eye Metallic Pencil in Black
LA Splash Pigment in Empress
MUFE No 92 Eyeshadow
Dark brown eyeshadow from matte Wet N Wild Palette
Milani Purple Pencil
Ebay Lashes
Urban Decay Gold Glitter Liner
NYX Blue Green Glitter Liner
Tarte Brow Gel Liner in Medium Brown

LIPS
Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop

Anyone celebrating Mardi Gras this year?  I'll probably pick up a king cake from my local grocery store.  But one day I'll make it to New Orleans!
