Wearable Purple Eye Makeup

How is everyone this week? It’s been really cold here in Canada! If you are anywhere in the colder region, keep yourself warm, yes?! Anyways, due to the cold gloomy weather, I wanted to create a look in which I incorporated a little bit of colour. I’ve decided to do a wearable purple eye makeup. It’s super simple and easy, you can use any colour of your liking on the crease. I chose purple just because I think it’ll look great on every eye colours.

The trick to this light colored eye makeup is to use a black mascara and eyeliner to tie the whole look together. Black mascara and eyeliner are a must with this look since the eyeshadows used in this tutorial is quite light, and I didn’t use any contour colour on the crease.

Wearable purple makeup


1. I applied NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Milk all over my eyelid using my finger.

2. Using a fluffy blending brush (or you can use a flat eyeshadow brush), I applied Bad Girl from Sleek Makeup Showstoppers palette all over the lid.

3. Using a clean fluffy crease brush, I applied MUFE purple eyeshadow no. 92 on the crease.

4. I blended the purple eyeshadow slightly using a clean blending brush, blending the eyeshadow upwards above the crease.

5. I created a winged eyeliner using an angled eyeliner brush and L’oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Blackkest Black.

6. Using a clean angled eyeliner brush, I applied UD Faint eyeshadow along the lower lash line.

7. I also lined my waterline using MAC Chromagraphic pencil eyeliner in NC15.

8. I filled my brows using Anastasia Duo Brow Powder in Brunette.

9. I curled my lashes, and applied Clinique High Impact Mascara on both upper and lower lashes.

Feel free to add false eyelashes to make your eyes look more wide awake. I ran out of falsies, so I didn’t apply any.

10. On my face, I applied Smashbox Halo foundation all over using Sigma Flat Kabuki brush.

11. I applied MAC Pro Conceal/Correct palette in yellow corrector under my eyes, and on the bridge of my nose.

12. I lightly contour my face using MAC Skinfinish natural in Medium Deep.

13. I applied MAC Dainty blush on my cheeks.

14. On my lips, I applied Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipstick in Socialite, and added a few dabs of YSL Glossy Stain in Peche Cerra-Colla (27).

Iris Inspired

I found a picture of an Iris flower on google image on a website by jaiart, and I fell completely in love with the colour combination of the Iris flower. I’m also lucky that the 3 MUFE eyeshadows that I happened to own are in the colors that are similar to the Iris – yellow (71), purple (92) and pink (75). These 3 shadows are matte. It’s extremely pigmented and easily blendable.

The key with this tutorial is that you’ll need 2 blending brushes – 1 to apply the pink on the crease, the other 1 to blend the pink out to nothingness so there’s no harsh edge. I recommend something similar to the MAC 217 blending brush.

You also need to be patient in packing the colors on so that it is still intense and yet blended out at the same time.


1. I dipped one side of a flat eyeshadow brush in MUFE 92 eyeshadow and applied it to the crease and outer corner. The side of the brush with the eyeshadow is facing up towards the eyebrow. Use little at first.

2. Using a blending brush (I used Urban Decay’s), I applied MUFE 75 eyeshadow just slightly above the crease in a small circular motion. Using a clean blending brush, I blended the pink shadow to make sure there’s no harsh edge.

3. At this point the purple started to fade out, so I added the purple eyeshadow again on the crease lightly. I still want the pink to show through just above the crease.

4. Using a small shader brush, like the MAC 228, I applied rMAC Noir Plum from the Mega Metal collection right on the crease.

5. Using the flat shadow brush that I used on step 1, I blended the dark plum shadow slightly so that the purple shows through.

6. Using a clean flat eyeshadow brush, I applied MUFE 71 on the crease.

7. I applied MUFE 71 on the inner lower lid using a pencil brush, as well as MUFE 92 on the outer half.

8. I lined my upper lashline using a small angled eyeliner brush and Bobbi Brown Caviar Ink gel liner, creating a winged liner. I also lined my waterline using whatever is left on the brush.

9. I filled my brows in using Anastasia Beauty Express Kit.

10. Using a fluffy blending brush, I applied the highlighter from the Anastasia Beauty Express Kit under the brow bones.

11. I curled my lashes, applied L’oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black and false eyelashes.


12. For the face, I want it to be flawless, clean and fresh. I applied Urban Decay Naked foundation using Shiseido foundation brush all over my face.

13. Under the eyes, I applied L’oreal Magic Touche concealer and blended it with my fingers.

14. I applied L’oreal Super Blendable Concealer Crayon in Medium Deep on the places I wanted to contour (side of nose and hollows of the cheeks). I blended the contour using a clean foundation brush.

15. I powdered my face lightly and applied NARS Matahari blush using MAC Stipling brush on the cheeks.

16. For the lips, I applied Revlon Kiss Me Coral very very very lightly for a little stain.
