Quite an impromptu post today! I hadn't intended on taking pictures of my look today, but as I had plenty of time to get ready before work, I began experimenting! 

I'm a huge fan of Shaaanxo, and her make-up looks always inspire me, and I learn so much from them, so I decided to create a similar look to one of her own tutorials. I rarely experiment with colour, but I am trying to branch out, so I went for her 'Purple and Blue' eye look. 

I started with my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, and placed that all over my lid, up to my brow bone.

I then took my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush from the 'Nic's Picks' collection, and put 'Shade 24' from the MUA 24 Shade Immaculate Collection Palette into my crease, and slightly over the outer corner of my eye. 

From the same palette, I took 'Shade 10', and patted it on my eyelid using the brush that came with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. 

I then took the same brush, and to add some glitter/highlight, I patted on Bare Minerals Glimmer Eyecolour in 'Chameleon' in the centre of my lid.

Using my other Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush, I dampened it with some water, and applied the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in 'Intergalactic' into the outer corner of my eye.

I then highlighted the inner corners of my eyes with 'Shade 1' from the same MUA palette with my Elf 'Eye Crease Brush'.

Going back to 'Shade 24' which I used in my crease, I then took my Real Techniques 'Eyeliner Brush', (again, from the Nic's Picks collection), and lined my lower lash line, also joining it together with my outer corner. 

To do my winged liner, I used the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in 'Black', and applied that with the Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush.

I hope you enjoy this make-up look, and let me know if you try it yourself! Should I do more make-up tutorials?
