Holiday Series: Royal Purple Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial
Naturally, as a strawberry blonde, and blue eyed babe, I aim towards peach, and copper tones. However, being a blogger, I realize not everyone is of eastern/nordic coloring, there is a full spectrum out there! With that being said, today I have a smoldering royal purple smokey eye that would compliment anywhere from green eyes to dark chocolaty brown eyes BEAUTIFULLY come the holidays. Please keep in mind I try to use the LEAST amount of product necessary, so feel free to add on whichever dazzling cosmetic product you’d fancy such as blush, and perhaps even primer!
Do be noted, as a disclaimer, ALL products were purchased with my own money, anything stated below is MY opinion, and all photos are raw, with minor touch ups of a lighting change, sharpness enhancement or a saturation enhancement. These factors DO NOT physically change the construct of each photo, they make it so you loves can see em’ clearly! Acts of “blurring” are NEVER done. Skin, is skin. If my makeup is not up to par on the lens, then it is not something I shall introduce to you beauties, though this has never, and will be never the case. Information stated below is both cited, and from my own studies. NOTHING has been copied, everything is my ideas, or shared concepts. To not include imagery of FALSE advertisement my skin type is dry/senstive, and any redness, or scabs happen to be hives from sadly…my nerves. With that being said, product recommendations, and your ability to relate might fluctuation, so feel free to ALWAYS ask me questions, this way you don’t end up spending money on the wrong items (for example, I use coconut oil as a base to sooth my hives, but for others this can be too oily, and NOT affective in curing one’s acne, in which I don’t have. Hives come, and go, and can sometimes last only 3 hours, so again, always ask before actually investing in products).
