She describes the look…

It begins with Jordana’s ‘Parisian Plum’ Eyeliner (A dark, dulled purple)across the lid and extended into a tail. (I have small-ish eyes with a slight slant….I feel like this makes them look exotic and POP! I always use tails!) next is a Loreal paris HIP Bright shadow duo #538 ‘Flamboyant’. Its a combination of matte purple and shiny shimmery gold! The gold has great color intensity, but I did have to go heavier on the purple for what I wanted. I brushed the gold across the lid into the crease, and all along the bottom lash. Blended the purple into and slightly above the crease, extending out slightly to meet the tail. The look is finished with IsaDora’s #05 ‘Royal Blue’ mascara, which I feel just explodes against the gold! (oh, the lips are Clinique Color Surge #21 ‘Precious Pink’ Lipstick!)

    i just thought id like to say how creative u are. u should really do something about it not just as a hobby.
    i am a MAC artist and i LOVE your collection.
    this make up would have looked PERFECT if that skin was workied on abit more. it would have been a beautiful polished look. but really good anyways
    and good luck
