HOW TO DO PURPLE SMOKY EYES

Ever since smoky eyes became a makeup trend, many variations of it were created.  Among them, purple smoky.  Today is my attempt at this sultry purple smoky eyes.  Wish me luck!

Step 1: Apply entire lid with a cream-based high lighter








Step 2: Top lid with a dark shade of purple shadow.  Don't cross the crease lines.




Step 3: Rim eyes with a black pencil liner.  Draw as closely to the lash line as possible.







Step 4: Line top lash lines with a dark shadow.
Using an applicator, smudge shadow with the black eyeliner.







Step 5: On your crease, apply a medium shade of purple shadow.




Step 6: Curl lashes and apply mascara




Done! Purple smoky that's pretty and easy-to-do!!
