Purples Pearls – Makeup Look #1 with MUA

I finally got round to play with my bargain eyeshadows from MUA. For this look #1 (2 others to follow in the series) I used shade 9 (bright purple) and shade 13 (dark purple). (See here my swatches and other MUA shadows I bought)  I really wanted to stick to those colours only and made a point of NOT using black to darken the crease.

I found the shadows very easy to blend, although the blue reflects from the light purple were more subtle than on my original swatch. I have yet to try over a dark base. I still can’t believe how bright and pigmented this is: amazing value for money. Well done MUA!


Additionally, I used:

base: too faced shadow insurance & nyx jumbo pencil in milk
highlight: Nyx, in highlight
inner corner: Nyx white from TS01 white/gray/black trio eyeshadow palette
waterline: Revlon Matte White  kohl eyeliner
lower lashline: Revlon Matte Very Violet
dark brown from TR2 smoky trio palette from Gosh for eyebrows
lashes: crap black lashes from the pound shop + purple lashes from 17 from Boots


lips: Fashion Mews from Mac (limited edition – Hello Kitty) + clear gloss
foundation from Revlon. I wanted to use my revlon pout lipstick to keep in with the 'drugstore/highstreet' theme but I did not find it on the day. boo :/

Great look! I got a few MUA eyeshadows too, including these ones, but haven't really tried them out yet (except the matte brown, which is great on my brows!) - will definitely try this look!

This looks great Lil! Can't believe you didn't even use any black in the crease - that dark purple is really intense! The lighter purple is a lovely shade too - I can see the blue reflects. I need to check out that MUA range! :) x
