Get The Look: Purple Obsessed Makeup Tutorial




On Day One of Australian Beauty Blogger Weekend I created a summer turquoise look called Daytime Glamour. Day Two was another day of meet and greets with Bloggers and brand reps so I wore one of my favourite Cue corporate dresses - a soft grey knee-length dress, along with my black ZARA blazer. I wanted the make up look to be soft and  beautiful, and with purple being the colour of the moment, I had to incorporate purple eye shadow and fuschia lips in to my look.
TIP: If you have green eyes then purple is the purrfect shade for you!


How-To Achieve the Purple Princess Look:
  1. Start with a clean face by removing any traces of makeup including old eyeliner and mascara.
  2. Apply a good moisturiser so skin holds your base longer. If you have oily skin then be sure to use a matte moisturiser.
  3. Prime and apply a yellow-based foundation with a slightly dewy finish. I used Gorgeous Cosmetics Base Perfect Foundation. Blend it past the jawline so there is not harsh line..
  4. Lightly powder the skin with a pressed powder in the same tone as your skin - be careful not to over-do it.
  5. Apply a light dusting of bronzer over the forehead, down the bridge of the nose and just above and under the jawline. NOTE: make it really subtle just to give the face a hint of warmth.
  6. Apply a rosy pink blush to the apples of your cheeks.
  7. Dust off excess blush off the powder and gently blend the blush over the apples of the cheeks so it does not look harsh. Gradually add a little more for a rosier cheek.
  8. Prime eyes with an eyelid primer to help eye makeup stay, and prevent eyeshadow from creasing. I love  Benefit Stay Don't Stray Eye Primer.
  9. Apply a soft purple matte eye shadow across the entire eyelid.
  10. For a little shimmer gently press a loose eye shadow over the powder eye shadow - I used Napoleon Perdis Loose Eye Dust #26.
  11. To reserve this look for day time there is no need for eye liner.
  12. Apply a touch of highlighter powder along the brow bone and above the apples of the cheeks to blend the blush. I adore Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick.
  13. Load up your lashes with black or charcoal grey mascara for emphasis. 
  14. Remember to apply clear or tinted brow gel to brows to prevent them from going unruly.
  15. Fill in brows with a complementing eyeshadow to give the look a clean and polished look.
  16. Apply a sexy fuschia-purple lipstick to complete the look.
