Smoky Purple - Bourjois Light Shadow Look

025
I thought I’d create a make-up look featuring one of the Bourjois Light eye shadow’s that I mentioned earlier in the week. I used Shade 03 for this look, which is the pinky, purple greyish shade. The shadow is quite shimmery so I’d say this look is probably not for every day, but would be perfect for a lovely meal out or something. I will include details of what I did after the photos below.

Method
1. Apply a base all over the lid, I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and blend this up towards the brow bone.
2. With a flat shader brush apply Bourjois Light Shadow – Shade 03 all over the lid, stopping at the crease.
3. Apply a purple/brown/grey shade, I used MAC Memorabilia, into the crease and blend the edges of the lighter shade. Blend this up towards the brow bone.
4. Deepen the socket by applying a darker purple shade to the outer ‘v’, I used MAC Sketch. Blend this a little and bring it down under the lower lashes.
5. Apply some more of the Bourjois Light Shadow to the inner corner of the eye and also on to the brow bone, to highlight.
6. Curl lashes and apply mascara.
