Today I wanted to share with you all the pretty pink & purple look I created a couple days ago. I don’t want to sound super generic, but these are my favourite colours. I love playing around with pinks and purples! I decided to create this look using only affordable eye shadows and I ended up dipping into two Makeup Revolution palettes – the original Soph collaboration palette & the Re-Loaded Newtrals 3 palette. I was so happy with the completed look! If you want to know all the details, keep reading.
Step One – Base
First I used the Makeup Revolution Superfruit Extract Primer / Serum (£9.99) to prep my skin. I then went in with the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop foundation (£15) and blended it out using a Real Techniques buffer brush.
Step Two – Eyes
As usual I used the ABH dipbrow pomade (£19) on my eyebrows with a Morphe angled brush and spoolie. Then I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (£4.19) to prime my eyelids. Once this was blended out, I first dipped into the Revolution x Soph Palette (£10). I took the white shade ‘Penguin’ on a Morphe s27 brush to set the concealer. Then, I went into the Re-loaded Newtrals 3 palette (£4). I used the deepest purple shade (Last on second row) on a Morphe s12 and applied it precisely into the outer half of my crease. Once I had packed this on, I used the Morphe s27 to buff out the edges with a lighter purple shade (4th on top row). Then, on the same brush, I applied ‘Strawberry Sweets’ from the Soph palette into the crease on the inner portion of my eye, blending it into the purple shades. Next I took the shade ‘Pancakes’ to buff out all of the edges. I then applied concealer onto the inner portion & centre of my eye lid and cut the crease using a small flat Morphe brush. Once I was happy with this I applied the shade ‘Pink Champagne’ all over the concealed area, and onto the inner corner of my eye.
I applied L’oreal Miss Manga Mascara (£7.99) after curling my lashes, and decided to skip the falsies!
Step Three – Finishing
I used the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define concealer (£4) under my eyes, down my nose, on my chin & on my forehead. I blended this out with Real Techniques buffer brush, as I did with my foundation. I applied the Rimmel Stay Matte powder (£3.99) with a big fluffy brush lightly all over my face.
Next I dipped back into the eyeshadow palettes to do my lower lash line. I applied both purple shades from earlier onto the outer section, and the pink shade on the inner section.
I used the Zoeva Spectrum Contour palette (£15) with a Morphe s13 brush. I used the cooler tone to contour and the warmer one to bronze. Then I used the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink (£8.99) on a Real Techniques contour brush. For highlight I used the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Charming Pink (£21) on a Morphe s26 brush.
I finished the look using Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lipstick in the shade Strip (£18), with a bit of Baby (from the same range – £18) on top!
That’s the completed look! What do you think? Most of the products I used were from the drugstore so super affordable too!
