Purple Eye Makeup

Since posting a review on the Coastal Scents 120 palette I received requests from readers to do makeup looks using the vibrant shades from the palette; so today I have a look that I like to call Purple Passion. 

My sister is always asking me to create easy makeup looks so that anyone, even those less experienced with makeup or those who have less time to apply makeup can re-create it. I kept it simple so that anyone who has this palette or similar colors in their collection can try it. It doesn't take much work and the different purple hues blend together and compliment each other well.



I labeled the colors I used from the palette below


This is the Coastal Scents 120 palette (2). For a review on this palette please click - HERE

Other items used:

Eyes
*Make up Forever brow gel in dark brown
*Urban Decay eye shadow primer
*e.l.f.  liquid eyeliner 
*Tear duct highlight - Chopper from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette
*To set under the eyes- Ben Nye Banana Powder

Face
*e.l.f.  face primer
*Makeup Forever HD powder
*Blush- NYX Pinched

*Lips
Plum Wine from the Graftobian lip palette

I think purple is a color that looks good on many skin tones so try it out and let me know what you think. I will be doing some more makeup looks soon so stay tuned...

  18. Hi, I just recently bought the coastal scents 120 palette 1 and I was wondering if you could do a makeup tutorial with that. Also could you recommend some makeup brushes that aren't overly expensive but that are good quality! I just want a neutral and I bright look with the 120 palette 1. Thank you !!! P.S. Sorry to be a bother! LOL

    BIG FAN!!!!!!!

    1. Hi, thanks for stopping by and being a BIG FAN, I appreciate it :) This purple look that you commented on is a look I did using the 120 palette! It is very easy to do and the colors I used are listed right on the palette. I will of course have more looks using this palette coming up in the future! There are so many colors to use so the possibilities are endless!

      In terms of great makeup brushes e.l.f has some great brushes. I like their e.l.f studio line (the brushes with the black handles) they are only $3 each and very soft. I use the e.l.f. essential eye shadow brushes too (the one with the white handle) I have tons of those and they are only $1 each. Real Techniques has some great brushes as well, they are a bit more expensive than e.l.f. but not as expensive as Sigma.

      It's not a bother glad to help :)
