5-Minute Makeup: Purples

5-Minute Makeup:  Purples

Here is a really quick look I did the other day before I went to have dinner with my family (my grandma is visiting!) 🙂  I’m testing out NARS’ Multiple Tint in Cadaques right now, so yes I will review it, just give me some time to test out the wear!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Seedy Pearl eyeshadow all over the lower lid. Lightly blend Fig. 1 eyeshadow in the outer crease and very outer edge of the lid with the 226.  Blend Hush eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone . Bring everything together by applying #4L liner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Cadaques blush on the apples of the cheeks and smooth with fingertips.

For lips, apply Sweetie lipstick first, and then layer Nymphette lipglass for a complementing lip.

Ha! So funny. I opened my browser to find a purple look to wear and accidentally clicked Temptalia… & there it was 😀 Thanks!!

Actually, the event I was talking about JUST ended! I was too late too catch your comment but I used a peachy pink, iridescent pink, dark purple & eggplant, with navy liner on the bottom. (I’ve posted a little picture in the website thingy.)

LOVE IT! I have been looking for a simple look using my untouched fig 1 e/s and this is perfect. Can you suggest a different highlighter though since i own mostly everything else to hightlight? Thanks for the look Christine.

This is so gorgeous!! i love purple and that lip gloss.. but i can never blend good enough.. especially between the eyeshadow and the highlighter! 🙁 but i do want to try this!

Thank you so much, Brittany 🙂

Just keep practicing! Use softer strokes – and always look at it from afar!

Sooo love that look!
You know Christine, you’ve been my inspiration for a few weeks now (before as well but back then I didn’t have the courage to even try out your wonderful looks) and I love each and every look on me. I adapt it sometimes to my skin tone but generally they are so universal! Thanks for this one as well!
Just one question: you used Seedy pearl on your whole upper lid as a base right?

I noticed your tank top always matches the dominant color for your eye creations. Is that how you get your color inspirations? 🙂

This is the kind of look I tend to wear everyday, and yes, it takes me 5 minutes too xD Those aqua eyes are so tempting…I love the colours!

Beautiful!! I love to see looks like this, that aren’t related to any one release, but are permanent products! I have Seedy Pearl, and love it a lot, and think it needs more love!! It’s a great look!

As a violet fiend, I LOVE this. It’s simple-but-gorgeous looks like this one that make me super-jealous of your double lids!! Just stunning.

Hope you’re having a nice visit with your grandma 🙂

Soft, simple and undeniably pretty! And only 2 eyeshadows – not counting highlighter! I’m going to try this tomorrow! (but with Mystical Mist because I don’t have Fig.1)

Love the glossy pink lip combo too!

Love that the lid is nearly nude with most of the color on the crease. My clients tend to think that they need a color on the lid and then a darker shade for the crease. They’re afraid to mix it up and experiment. I really love all these tutorials you and other artists post. It shows the world its okay to play with colors.

Yes, I’ve tried the eyeshadow base and the smoother (though not a full testing, since it has a lot of silicone in it ).

Oooh this is really pretty!

I’m interested to see what you think of the NARS Multiple Tints. I find that it lasts all day on my skin! A little sticky for a while, but eventually it sets and will NOT budge. 😀

I have seen many swatches of cadaques but here it looks like you are hardly wearing any blush at all! did you not apply enough LOL. I am more interested in Turks and caicos but I am not sure how that will look like on my NC30 skin

Thank you, Diana! Sketch is a bit redder, less purple, so they are different, but you could do this look with Sketch for sure!

What a beautiful look. Classic, classy and it would everybody I know. Beautiful lips too. Very well put together Christine. I am going to copy this one fo sho! 🙂

I love purple and this is a very subtle way to wear it but… what about, sometimes, showing us a more evening-style look? I mean, something more gothic, ie: black, violet and other bold colour? I would really like to see you with this kind of styl! I am curious! 😀

LOVELY!!! I’m copying this look in its entirety. Thank you for a fresh take on purples (which I seem to collect for hopes of accentuating the green in my eyes) This is great!

So gorgeous. You look like an angel!:) Sadly it takes me more than 5 mins to put foundation alone on , not to mention eyeshadows.
