Purple & Gold


As promised in my review of the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Eye Foil I thought I would share with you a look where this product is the shining star of the show. This makeup look is a little bit out there and even though I quite enjoy wearing purple shades, this is out of my comfort zone. I can't exactly put my finger on what it is that I'm not a fan of with this look but I guess like I feel like the overall looks just doesn't really suit me (maybe it's the purple lipsticks actually). At the end of the day though that's what experimenting with makeup is all about…discovering what you like, don't like, what suits you and what doesn't. So even though it's not a makeup look I am exactly raving about I still thought I wold share it with you all.


I primed my eyes using my trusty Urban Decay Primer Potion and then followed the steps in the photo above to create this look. It's actually quite simple to create and the only thing you really need to worry about is making sure that your blending is on point. To finish off the eyes I used Benefit They're Real Mascara on my top and bottom lashes. Oh and for my brows I dug out the Anastasia Dip Brow which hasn't been getting much love from me recently as I've gotten super lazy with doing my brows.

The rest of the face was again kept quite simple and it didn't take long at all to complete the whole look. I used my damp BeautyBlender to apply MAC Pro Longwear as it's my favourite way of applying this foundation for a flawless finish. Next it was time to conceal those dark circles so I used No7 Instant Radiance Under Eye Concealer pen, which is feels really nice around the eye area.  

I'm trying to use up my MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder so I used that for a change to set my makeup in place. With everything else going on I opted for a light and natural bronze look to the skin, so I used the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Palette which I haven't used for quite some time now but instantly remembered how much I loved it. I wanted to keep everything purple toned based (crazy I know) so I opted for the only blush that I own with purple undertones, MaxFactor Creme Puff in Gorgeous Berries. This is a lot darker than what I had in mind so I had to use it very lightly. If any of you have good suggestions for lilac blushes leave them in the comments below please…



Lastly it was time for the lips and I decided to brave it as I opted for the Makeup Revolution's Iconic Pro Lipstick in Liberty Matte. I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of this colour outside of my apartment walls, so I figured I better at least experiment with it for the blog. Would any of you wear a bright & bold purple shade like this one?

So that's my purple & gold inspired makeup look, it's a little bit out of my comfort zone and I'm not entirely sure I can pull it off, but I'm glad I experimented with these purple shades and I hope you enjoy seeing what I came up with. Would love to know your opinions and thoughts in the comments below…
