Inexpensive Smokey Purple EYES!

Yeeahhhh, I'm back with another makeup look and I used my NYC City Duo in Island Sunset again! It's the same duo I used for my Party Pink and Purple look but this time I did a reverse application of the colors. I applied the purple color all over the lids and pink on the crease to create a really beautiful Smokey Purple eyes. If you don't know what I'm talking about, click HERE to see the makeup.

 I'm really loving this eye shadow duo by NYC. It's my second time trying their eye shadows and I'm really impressed with this duo. I like that its only $2.99 ^_^ and you can get it at your local drugstore! I can spare 3 bucks anytime of the day for a good eye shadow. For sure I will pick up the other duos and hope that its just as great as this one.

Cool Tips mentioned din the video:
  • Always apply a base to even out the skin tone on the lids.
  • Pat on the eye shadows on the lids to get a better color pay off.
  • Blend, blend, belnd! You want a nice transition of colors. Use a blending brush to do so.
