Dramatic Makeup

Today I have a quick makeup post mixing different shades of purples, lavender and blue. I love mixing my shadows together and creating my own custom shades. Sometimes I don't quite know what I will end up with which makes it even more interesting!

To get this look I used:
*Madison Street Beauty Wisteria- lid color (mixed with purples from the 120 palette)
*NYC liquid eye liner
*Urban Decay Primer Potion
*Maybelline Rocket mascara
*e.l.f face primer
*MAC Studio Fix pressed powder
*Make Up Forever HD powder
*e.l.f shimmering facial whip


  1. Very beautiful make up!
    The colours look great on you!
    Have a nice weekend Erica!!!

  7. Beautiful as always! How do you get your make-up so bright!?

  8. Hi Casey, thanks :) It helps to start off with bold colors that have good pigmentation. I have a few palettes that don't have such great pigmentation and I can assure you they didn't turn out looking like this! I use a very good eye shadow primer and heavily apply the shadow in layers so that they show up bright for the post. I also take the photos in really good lighting, usually right in front of a window with the background behind me very dark. Its a combo of products and lighting. :)
