Tutorial: Smokey Dramatic Purple Eyes

Hi Bellas,

It's tutorial time!  I wanted to make sure and share this gorgeous smokey purple look that I wore to the New York Makeup Show.  I used my new favorite palette - Ofra Cosmetics Diamonds are Forever Palette.  If you love bright colors and dramatic eyes, this look is for you!

Check out the video!

I used this palette from Ofra Cosmetics - primarily the pink, purple and charcoal shades.  I then mix it with a matte crease transition and browbone highlighter to add balance to the look.  I also used their Eye Gel Primer as pictured below which is a great dupe for Urban Decay Primer Potion.

I like adding a color to my tearduct instead of a typical bright highlight shade - it adds a fun and unexpected pop of color.
 I've made double lash stacking a habit - here I have on two pairs of #43 lashes.
 Pair it with a pinky nude lip and you're good to go!  Not a bad outcome when I filmed this when I was super sick lol.
Here's What I Used:
