Quick Purple Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial FT. Too Faced Cat Eyes Pallet
MEEEEYOW! In all the years I’ve owned my Too Faced Cat Eyes Pallet, I believe there has only been three occasions in which I have actually picked it up, and physically used the shadows. Isn’t it odd since I myself LOVE kitties?! For today, being I’ve become fascinated once more by the beautiful array of hues, I put together a stunning and easy to complete dramatic purple smokey with slight traces of pink glitter for a girly touch. You shall find the face makeup to be VERY simple, too! Remember, oil’s are your best friend, whether your skin is oily, or quenching for hydration. Manipulating certain products, and using them either as a mixing base, OR a glow product can be quite beneficial to your overall skin health! Read below to find out more on how to complete this tutorial, XOXO.

Facial oil can be tricky, especially when mixed with highly concentrated pigments such as those found in foundation and blush. Instead of going through the obstacle of reapplication, I chose a rather thick, yet slightly dense oil, that being Fresh’s Seaberry Oil, and DIRECTLY dropped single droplets onto the high points of my face, with my head tilted back to prevent leaking, then with my ring plus index finger stuck together went ahead and patted the oily substance in until a youthful, yet natural dew appeared. The beauty of oil, unlike creams, is you can create your own highlighting products! For example, let’s say you have a powder highlighter, but would much rather it as a creamy glow. How does one do this? Simply scrape off a few particles of the powder, mix it in with one drop of oil, and viola, creamy perfection! In my studies this combination creates a much more long-lasting finish, in comparison to straight highlighters in pot or stick form. Lip wise, I chose Creme De La Femme by Mac Cosmetics, because the plumish hues complimented the shadow well! Try sticking within the range of plums, to frosted pinks. Lastly, to set my skin, I sprayed on Mac’s Fix + in grand quantities to ensure a few hours of wear would occur!
