Purple Eye Look

Today we shall be doing a purple eye look. I have since figured out, that I can only do one eye look at a time.  I prefer my left eye for tutorials as I am right handed and it just comes out better.  Trying to do two looks on the left eye just caused my poor eye to react with tearing and the corner of my eye lid just wouldn't hold onto the color.  So there aren't as many closed lid shots.

So I either do one look a day or one look in each eye.  For the time it takes to set up all the props I showed you last post and the time it takes to weed through 100 pictures-no joke, I'm better off doing two and being done for the day.

When this post actually posts, it will be two weeks until I go on vacation.  I cannot wait! I got a brand new fishing pole I'm dying to try out and a new fish weigh scale so I can't now say with precision just how big a fish I have caught.

I was telling my mom the other day how I hadn't slept well the night before as I was having all sorts of weird dreams.  The one I do remember was of us being at our camp in Canada and I was fishing on the dock when I caught a huge pike.  Now I'm talking in my dream the fish was a big as I am-and I'm 5'4".  It was not a pike in the conventional sense, but what I called it in my dream.  To me, it was more prehistoric.

Anywho, I started screaming for my mom and screaming and screaming.  She and my deceased Gramma came out of the camp and my mom came down to the dock and sort of hugged this huge fish as she got it off the hook and released it back in the water.

Now in reality, we would have kept that fish, filleted it and eaten it as we do now.  And no way would my mom ever hug a huge fish like that! HAHAH.

They always say dreams mean something.  I still have no clue what that one could possibly mean.

Here is the eye look we are going for today.

Now I will admit I did do one piece of photoshopping to this.  I had makeup eye boogers in the corner of my eye from the tearing I told you about.  I never thought to look.  Macro is a demon!

Here is the starting point.

Once again I did the undereye concealer, highlight, lid prime like always.  I started with a light brown in my crease.

I'm still working on my technique and blending.  Watching a ton of YouTube videos to teach myself.
Next I added a bit darker brown to my crease. Oh and I did my brows again with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Auburn.  I tell you guys, it's worth the price.  This stuff is amazing.

Now I added purple to my lid.

Next I added black liner to the top lid and purple liner to the waterline.

I also smudged purple shadow underneath.  It's not as clean a job as I would have liked but my eye was not cooperating at all.  It was a teary mess.

Next I added my false lashes oh and Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter to my brow bone.

Isn't this pretty?? I think I put the lashes on wrong here-they should be standing up more.  My stupid lashes are long, but won't hold a curl any more.  It's annoying!  HAHAH!

I hope you have liked this one! Any suggestions for future posts out there?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
