Hello Lovelies!

images-2IMG_9686images-1IMG_9684UnknownIMG_9685

I’m Back! With 3 hour Volleyball practices and games twice a week, plus tournament weekends, it’s been pretty hectic if you know what I’m saying.

Today’s Celebrity Saturday captures the true beauty of the makeup worn by the VS models. OBVIOUSLY, I’m not one of them… I mean, come on people. But I love their makeup. It represents makeup’s true purpose: To bring out your features. It’s so so wearable and simple. I’m using my Disney Sephora Ariel Palette (LOVE LOVE LOVE), but I’ll show you some dupes in case you don’t have this. Let’s jump right in!

I’m going to prime my eyes with the Lorac Eye Primer to start off.

Now to warm up the lid, I’m taking the lighter of the two peachy gold shades from the palette, Scuttle, and applying this on the inner half of my lid. You can use Loreal’s eyeshadow in Iced Latte.

Majestic Purple Eye Ft. Disney Jasmine Palette!

Hi lovelies!

Today I wanted to show you how I do this fun purple eye. It looks a bit scary, but the way the colors are blended makes this very wearable and flattering! I’ll show you some tips to make sure you don’t get the “Bruised” effect that some purple eyeshadows can give you. These colors are all from the Disney Sephora Jasmine Palette which I mentioned in my Colors Of The Rainbow Tag! Let’s jump right in.

Okay, so the first step, as always, is primer. For this step I wanted something that would create a blank canvas, so I used the MAC Painterly Paint Pot.

Image

Next, I want to apply a white base to my brow bone, inner corner, and inner three-fourths of my lid to help the purples really pop. For this I’m using the NYX eyeshadow base in white, found at ULTA.

Image

Now blend that out with your finger.

Image

For a browbone highlight, I’m using the color in the palette called “Ali Ababwa”.

Image

Image

For an inner corner highlight, I want to use a bright shimmery shade with a yellow undertone. The yellow will counteract the purple and save your eyes from looking bruised, which can happen with purples if you’re not careful. I’m going to use the color “Sand in the Glass”. I’m using an angled brush for this.

ImageImage

Now it’s time to start with the color. On a flat shader brush, I’m going to take the bright purple in the palette called “Mystical Wonder”. You want to pat, not rub, this color on the eyelid where we applied the white base.

ImageImage

To blend this with the inner corner color, take the brush we used to apply the highlight and pat it lightly over the inner part of the purple.

Image

Now for the crease color. I’m taking the color called “Master” on a MAC 217 brush and putting this in my outer V (The outer corner in a sideways V shape) and through my crease.

ImageImage

As you can see, I’m starting about 1/4 of the cay in at my lash line and dragging the color upward as I move outward.

Image

Now I just put the color through my crease.

BLEND!!!!!

Image

For the lower lash line, I’m starting with the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Asphyxia, a pinkish purple color. Only apply this halfway in.

ImageImageImage

Now with a small brush, I’m taking the darker purple we used and putting that on the outer 1/4 of my eye.

Image

Next apply the lighter purple over the remaining part of the eyeliner.

Image

For the upper lash line, I’m creating a wing with an eyeliner brush and Elf’s cream eyeliner in Black.

Image

To help brighten the eyes a bit more, Take a nude eyeliner, I’m using the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Nude, and apply this to the inner waterline. (The space between your lashes and eyeball. If you have overly sensitive eyes, skip this step. I have mildly sensitive eyes and it doesn’t bother me at all.)

Image

Add your favorite Mascara! I used the Covergirl Clump Crusher.

Now for the face. For bronzer, I’m using the one that came in the palette. It is a warm golden, shimmery bronze shade. Apply this in the 3 E motion.

Image

I’m also using the rosy pink blush that came in the palette.

Image

Add your favorite nude or peachy lip product and we’re all done! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading! As always, Comment and tell me if you’ve tried out any looks and how they’ve worked for you. Feel free to comment any requests!

xoxo,
