Purple Smokey Eye

To get this look:

Step 1: Put a shimmery champagne colour into the corer of your eye, (add a little bit below too for added effect) and sweep across to the half way mark of your eye
Step 2: Place a dark purple or plum colour into the outer edge of your eye and blend the two colours together
Step 3: Put the purple colour around the bottom edge of your eye
Step 4: Add some thick eyeliner, and mark your waterline with a dark soft kohl eyeliner pencil
Step 5: Put some fake lashes on for drama, or add a simple coat of mascara

It's a pretty simple look, but it's my go-to! I get comments on my makeup all the time when I wear this. The shimmer focuses attention on your eyes, but the dark purple adds depth and mystery. It's not too simple and not too overdone!
