Face of the Day: Purple Smokey Eye

I've recently decided to follow the trend of using palettes that don't get a lot of love. And I have this one by Rimmel that was injured in a depotting accident and sits in a drawer. I don't think I have ever used it. I tried it out today, and the colours are pretty nice. They're nowhere near Urban Decay or Bobbi Brown, but they are definitely usable and look quite nice. I finished the look off with a peachy lipstick and pinned back bangs. 
Also, I feel like I finally found some good eyebrow colours. I'm naturally a blonde with very black eyebrows. Go figure. And when I fill them in, several people have commented that they look too dark and strong. However, if I go to a lighter brown, you can obviously tell where the hairs end and the powder begins. But this combo of a medium brown and dark brown seems to work well.

  1. I actually really love how strong your eyebrows are. Do you have a tutorial for filling them out? Also, your smokey eye skills are amazing---the wash of color is so pretty.


    1. I actually have bangs most days so I don't fill in my brows because they're no visible. But I just mostly wing it. :)

      And thank you.

  2. Nice makeup and lovely colors, they suit you very well ^-^
    I don't think your eyebrows are too strong ,I think there is harmony with your hair color and your general look ;)

  3. Gorgeous! I love the purple. I need to learn how to put on eyeshadow like that. I'm a totally noob at it.

    1. It's a good thing practicing makeup is so fun :)

      And thank you. It means a lot.

  4. Wow! Your eyes look amazing. I wish I had brows like yours. I'm still trying to figure mine out.

    1. Haha. Mine are easy to hide with bangs on days they don't work out so well.

  5. Great job! I really love the lipcolour. You also look very nice with your bangs pulled back. Not sure if I've seen that before.

    1. Thanks Kat!

      I actually don't think I have posted anything with my hair back.

  6. you're so pretty! love the make up
