Long time no look! It’s been a ridiculously busy week over at Temptalia HQ between midterms, team projects, and blogging. I’d say more, but I just ran out of time — gotta get to class!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Lovely Lily pigment (pastel purple), NARS Jolie Poupee eyeshadow duo (cool satin purple/plummy-purple), Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow (duochrome fuchsia-purple), Cinders eyeshadow (dark blue-purple), Hush eyeshadow (pink highlighter), Urban Decay Lust 24/7 Liner (purple), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: NARS Super Orgasm blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Insinuate lipstick (plum with pink), Crystal Rose lipglass (fuchsia-purple)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Cinders = Contrast; Insinuate = Plumful; Crystal Rose = Pink Pearl pigment

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Lovely Lily pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner-to-middle lid, apply Jolie Poupee eyeshadow (purple) using the 239. Apply Jolie Poupee eyeshadow (plum) to the outer half of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Cinders eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Soften harsh color lines with Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow above the crease. Sweep Hush underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Lust 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Super Orgasm using the 129. Apply Insinuate lipstick to lips, and then top with Crystal Rose lipglass for color and shine.

    Hi Christine! That is such a gorgeous shadow duo. I really should pay more attention to the NARS displays. 😉 I thought Super Orgasm would be more peach, but it seems more pink here…

  5. I am seriously in awe of your blush-matching skill. I would have never thought to pair Super O with purple eyes, but it looks amazing!

    wooooooow! this is the prettiest purple look I have seen so far. Great job! Could you do a tut on this, please,please

    • Aww, thank you Inani! It’s really, really simple. Seriously 😉 Just put down you base, then half the lid in the cooler purple color, other half in the plummy-mauve color. That’s really all it is. I used a slightly darker purple to define the crease a bit.

    Gorgeous!! Must have this duo! Does anyone know if it is permanent?

    • I actually don’t know if it’s LE or permanent. To be honest, I’m not familiar enough with NARS’ treatment of products in their launches, LOL.
