Makeup Diaries: The Purple Haze Eye


Hey dolls! Remember a little while ago, I had gone to a fashion show and I blogged all about it? If you need a refresher, you can click right here! Well, I wanted to share with you what I wore and what my makeup look was. The purple haze eye look is one of my favourite eye makeup looks to wear. I find that it’s unique, fun and perfect for a night out. Also, it makes my brown eyes pop! Below, I’ve shared with you how to get the Purple Haze eye look, what other makeup products I had on and what I had worn. Have fun recreating this look and remember you can always change things to make it more unique to your own style. Just to let you know that I only used one eye shadow palette for this eye look (The Vice 3 by Urban Decay), but you can definitely find dupes for the eye shadows so that you can recreate it. Lastly, if you aren’t following me on my various social media accounts, then do so (Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest & Instagram). Hope you guys enjoy this look!


The Purple Haze:

Step 1: Take an eye shadow primer of your choice and apply all over the eyelids, including the lower eyelids and brow bone. I’m using the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original.


Step 2: With a flat shadow brush, take a light matte pink shadow and apply all over the lids and brow bone (this will be your highlight colour as well). I used the shade “Truth” from the Vice 3 Palette.


Step 3: Take a bright pink shadow, I used “Alien”, and apply in the first 1/3 of the lids using the same flat shadow brush you used earlier. Focus more in the inner corners of the lid.


Step 4: Using a bright maroon-purple colour, I used the shade “Alchemy” (which is one of my fav shadows of all time now), apply all over the lid. You want to layer this on top of the two shades you just applied, this will make the colour intense.


Step 5: Take a grape purple colour, I’m using “Vanity”, and apply again on the eyelid, focusing more in the center. This way the shade “Alchemy” peeks through the inner corner. You can use the same brush you used in step one, since you are building each colour on one another.


Step 6: With a pencil brush, or any brush that’s pointed, apply the shade “Vanity” to your lower eyelids. Don’t worry about the fall out, you can clean that up once you’re completely done the eye look.


Step 7: Using a dark purple eye liner, I’m using Tarte’s smoldereyes in Ash Violet, line your upper and lower eyelids, staying close to the lash line. Using a smudger, I made the harsh line a little bit softer.

Step 8: Take a dark purple eyeshadow, I’m using “Bondage”, and apply to the outer corner of the eyes using a fluffy crease brush. You want to make sure you are blending this dark colour into the bright purple shadows on your lids.

Step 9: Take a bright purple liner, I used Marc Jacobs’ gel liner in plumage, and line your upper eyelids (where you used the smudged dark liner in step 7).

Step 10: Take a bright blue liner, I used MAC’s liner in Petrol Blue, and layer that liner on top of the purple liner you used in step 9. This step is up to you, I did it because I wanted a little bit of blue to peep out through my liner and to make my look a bit more unique.


Step 11: Using a waterproof black eye liner, I used Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Pervasion, line your waterline.

Step 12: Apply two coats of mascara to your lashes. I used Tarte’s curler to curl my lashes first and then I applied an eyelash primer (Urban Decay’s Subversion) and then I applied two coats of Diorshow waterproof mascara.

Step 13: Using your favourite brow liner, fill in your brows. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Wiz.


Step 14: Take a CLEAN crease brush and make sure to run it through your crease blending out any harsh lines. Make sure to clean up any fall out.


Now that you are done the eyes, you are good to go to finish the rest of your face!

Here’s what I paired this eye look with:


Foundation Primer: Mixture of Smashbox’s Colour Correcting primer and MAC’s Prep+Prime in Natural Radiance.

Foundation+Concealer: Make Up Forever’s HD foundation and I set it with MAC’s Mineralize SkinFinish foundation to give it a more natural feel. For concealer, I used MAC’s mineralize concealer. I used my beauty blender to apply all of these for a flawless finish.

Blush+Contour: I used a blush from Tarte’s Christmas Blush Palette, it’s the one on the far right. As for contouring, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Contour Kit in Medium to Tan.

Eyes: See Above!

Lips: Nars’ Audacious Lipstick in Audrey

Setting Powder+Spray: Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup setting spray and Makeup Forever’s HD setting powder.

Here’s the outfit I wore


Have a great time recreating this look dolls and have a great day! x
