Tutorial: Purple Eyes + Face Makeup

This is a pretty easy look for eyes & I added how I finished my face makeup, as well. Hope you like it! If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below. Also, please let me know if you like the dots!
Prime your eyes. I already have my foundation on and I've done my eyebrows, but I haven't powdered or concealed since I will get fallout from some of the pigments I am using later.
Use a cream shadow on the lid so the loose pigments will stick better. I am using NARS Soft Touch Pencil in Goddess.
Tip! If you want less fallout on your face, you can hold a tissue under your eye while you apply loose pigments.
Using a MAC 242, I apply Shiro Mother of Dragons all over my lid and into the crease.
Then, using a Sigma E65 I apply Mac Blanc Type. You can use any color that is close to your skintone in a matte.
Next, I apply MAC Wedge using a Sigma E40 from my crease to half way up my brow.
Using a Sigma E45 I apply Urban Decay Rockstar in the outer V, taking up about a quarter of the lid.
Using a Sigma E30 I apply Stila Dahlia in the outer V, but more defined than with Rockstar.
Blend the edged.
Using Simga E30 I put Shiro Mother of Dragons under the lower lash line.
I also applied corrector and concealer at this point.
Tight line with a black pencil and line your water line with a nude.
You can add some winged liner if you'd like. This look is also pretty without liner, but I am going to be wearing false lashes so I'll add liner.
Curl your lashes and add some mascara.

Finishing the Face

 Powder your face. I use RCMA No Color and Ben Nye Cameo. I use a sponge and press and roll the powder on to my skin to set my base.
Here, I am using Hourglass Ambient Light Powder in Diffused to brighten the center of my face. I use a Sigma F35.
I am using an Sigma F50, making small circles to apply and blend Benefit Rockateur blush.
This is where I apply blush.
A quick contour with MAC Sculpt and A Simga F05.
As you can see here, even just a little bit of contouring makes a big difference.
Using MAC Emphasize and a Sigmga F35, I am highlighting my cheek bones, inner corner of my eyes, brow bone and cupids bow.
Wipe off any foundation or lip gloss you may have left on your lips. I had Smith's Rosebud Salve on my lips while I was applying makeup, but I don't really want to apply my lipstick over it so I always remove it before going on.
Here, I've using MAC Prep and Prime and then Applied MAC Brave.
 I added a bit of a Stila gloss and just dabbed it in the center of my lips.
And that's the finished look! In these following pictures I also added Oh my Lash! The Knockout Lashes.
