Sugarpill Purple Gradient

I was asked to do a gradient look, so this is the purple gradient that I came up with. I used Sugarpill Hysteric, Weekender, Birthday Girl, Lumi, Tako, Stella and Velocity for the look. I don’t like how my brows turned out and I really should have gone for Poison Plum for the brows. I do like how my lips turned out. I mixed Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Butch and Demure together for my lip shade.

How to achieve the look:

  1. Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. With MAC Fix+ on a small smudge brush, apply Sugarpill Stella to the upper lash line.
  3. With MAC Fix+ on a small shader brush, apply Sugarpill Weekender to the lid.
  4. Apply Sugarpill Hysteric to the crease and outer v.
  5. Take a fluffy brush and apply Sugarpill Tako lightly to the browbone.
  6. With a fiber optic crease brush making a small circular motion, apply Sugarpill Birthday Girl to the upper crease.
  7. Take a highlighter brush and apply Sugarpill Lumi to the browbone, blending downwards.
  8. Use a smudge brush to apply Sugarpill Velocity to the outer lower lid.
  9. Apply Sugarpill Weekender to the entire lower lid, on top of Velocity.
  10. Apply mascara.
  11. Apply Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Psychedelic Sister to the lower waterline.
  12. Add Lumi to the inner corner of the eyes.

      Hi there. I love this and it reminds me of how we did our makeup in the late 80′s early 90′s with the dark blue or purple, then pinks, etc. I am having an 80′s contest on my channel right now and thanks to you I learned to use rafflecopter on my new blog. After three years, I got hacked. Wow. That was hard to swallow. However, I find your work inspiring and would love to know how you take your pictures of your eyes. I did mine two days in a row and found it tedious. Do you video then pic out the snapshots, set up auto snaps, etc. Any advice you have would be amazing and I have a question for you that I would love to ask via email. It is [email protected] ….I know you are very busy, but would love to ask you something. Hugs, Jennifer

      Great lipcolour, it goes perfectly with the eye look. I think the brows are a good colour because they pick up on some of the blues in your hair.
