BftE Purple and Gold Tutorial

Saturday I wore this BftE purple and gold (sort of smoky) look out. Ray decided it was time to brew again, so we had a brewing party at our friends’ place. This time they made mint chocolate stout.

Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

How to Achieve the Look:

  2. Line the outer upper and lower lash line with Tarina tarantino Tommy Jett liner.
  3. Pat BftE Salted Caramel onto the lid and lower lash line, and blend it with the crease shade.
  4. Blend BftE Midnight Kisses onto the outer 1/3 of the lid and crease, as well as the lower lash line.
  5. Line the outer upper and lower lash line with black liner again, and then add more Midnght Kisses on top.
  6. Highlight the browbone and inner corner with BftE Glistening and line the lower waterline with black liner.
  7. Add mascara!

      Oooh, I love the smokiness combined with the gold! I love your picture tutorials and I always learn new techniques/ways to apply my eye makeup.
      I just can’t develop a taste for beer, but his still sounds good! Let us know how it turns out.

        Jessi M I don’t really drink beer either, but I’ll sip his. I don’t like hops, in any form. Glad you like the look :)

      Love how simple yet beautiful this is! As soon as I get over this cold (nothing looks good with a Rudolph nose!) I’m going to definitely try this one! Great tutorial, thanks Phyrra! Mint chocolate stout sounds nice as an idea but, like you, I’m not a huge fan of hops. By the way, I love your new fringe/bangs!
