Heartbreaking purple

First some devastating news.

The first and only designer I've ever liked, is dead.

He was amazing, he had so unique idea's and designs.
Outfit's maybe weren't wearable, but they were definately inspiring.






All images from Google.

But life goes on (at least to some of us), and it's time to move on to the makeup.

Today I'm gonna give you a purple MAC look, great for Valentine's day for example!
And I'm also gonna give you a step-by-step tutorial for the look:


MAC Painterly p/p
NYX Jumbo pencil Purple
MAC Blue Flame e/s
MAC Young Punk e/s
MAC Seedy Pearl e/s
MAC Parfait Amour e/s
MAC Shadowy Lady e/s
MAC Shroom e/s
(MAC Brash&Bold pigment)
MAC Blacktrack/ Blitz&Glitz fluidline

(You can easily change Blue Flame and/or Young Punk to something else, for example for something dark purple or black)


Prime your eye with MAC Painterly paint pot:

Add a tape to your outer corner if you wish, and add NYX Purple to create a shape and intense the color:

Add MAC Blue Flame to create the shape that fits your eye:

Add MAC Parfait Amour to your outer half of the lid, blend it with Blue Flame:

Add MAC Seedy Pearl to your inner half of the lid:

Add MAC Shroom to your highlight, also use it to blend the colors together better:

Remove the tape:

Line your upper lashline. If you're gonna be wearing falsies, you may wanna line your lashline after the falsies:

Add MAC blacktrack gently toyour waterline, and line your lower lashline with MAC Shadowy Lady:

Add falsies:

I then blended MAC Brash&Bold pigment to following area, and also added a hint of MAC Young Punk to my outer corner, to bring more glam to the look:

And voilá, you're done! 

Here's some more pics:



And then something really weird, inspired by GaGa's red lace outfit she wore on MTV awards.
This wasn't such a success, but I liked the idea:

That's all this time !


  1. It's so sad about Alexander McQueen :(

    That's a beautiful purple look, though. I might use it on Valentine's Day.

  2. I'm so bummed about Alexander McQueen :(

    I loooove the purple look
