FOTD: Purple smokey eyes with pale pinklips

Hi Girls

I am back with yet another makeup look. I told you that I can not go bare on eyes. Right? Let me confess something. I have a weakness for dark, smoky eyes. I find them Oh-so-glamorous!! Even if you don't wear any other makeup but just dark smokey makes you look uber sexy. I am not game for the "all black smokey eye". Rather I like to play with other dark colors- purple, navy blue, dark greens etc

So, today I will show you guys girls a quick and easy smokey eyes makeup look. I did this in 20 mins flat.

Here is a step by step guide:

1. Wash your face and moisturize it. Prime your lids with a primer. (I used Garnier anti dark circle eye roll-on in shade LIGHT)

2. Take a black kohl and apply it all over your lids. This is to intensify the color and make it look darker.

3. Now blend the kohl lightly.

4. Take a dark purple eyeshadow and apply it all over your lids. You will have to use the purple color quite liberally as it may not show up its true color on the black base. Now, blend it nicely.

5. Apply a dark brown eyeshadow on the crease and blend in all the colors.

6. Take the purple eyeshadow and apply it on your outer lower lashline, leaving out the tear duct area.

7.Apply the same dark brown eyeshadow on your lower lashline, just below the purple eyeshadow.

8. Take a black kohl and apply it on your lower lashline. Tightline your eyes as well.

9. Apply generous coats of mascara.

10.Apply concealer on your brow bone and under your eyes as well.

11. Take a shimmery pale gold eyeshadow for highlighting your brow bone.

12. Apply a pale pink lipstick and put on some blush/bronzer.

That's it. It will not take much time to create this look.

This is how it looked in the end (EOTD):
