FFF: Blue and Purple makeup look

Friday 13 December 2013

This weeks FFF is inspired by a client's dress that she will be wearing for her engagement/wedding in December.

I wanted to also update my Blue-Purple look from 2012, but for this look I used the newly acquired Kiko Evolution Must Have Palette (reviewed here) and as many drugstore/affordable products too, so here goes!

Products used:
> UDPP - Eden

> NYX JEP in Black Bean
> Kiko Evolution Must Have Palette - 7 shadows - 1 (beige sparkle), 2 (pinky nude matte), 6 (bright pink), 7 (lilac matte), 8 (indigo shimmer), 9 (cream shimmer), 12 (dark blue shimmer)

> Urban Decay Smoked Palette - Freestyle and Blackout
> Kiko Double Glam Eye Liner - 100 Light Gold (& Ebony) 
> Inglot AMC eyeliner gel - 77 (black)
> Kiko Unforgettable Waterproof mascara (black)
> Ardell Professional 120 Demi lashes
> Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Brow Powder Duo - Ebony
> Urban Decay 24/7 concealer - ATF
> UD concealer in ATF
> Graftobian HD creme foundation Warm Palette - Buttermilk & Mid. Marigold for contouring
> EX1 Invisiwear foundation - F200
> UD Razorsharp powder
> Sleek Contour Kit - Medium
> Kiko Essential Bronzer in 201 Sienna Melange
> Sabaya lip pencil in 08 (pink, from Dubai)
> UD Revolution lipstick in Fiend

I started by priming the eye with Eden PP and then just on the eyelid went over with NYX JEP in Black Bean, blending upwards slightly.
I patted on the Dark Blue shimmery eyeshadow from the Kiko palette with a flat brush all over the eyelid on top of the NYX JEP.
I then highlighted the brow bone with the Cream shimmer colour and the inner corner of the eye with the beige sparkle. The matte pinky nude colour was then used under the brow bone highlight, followed by the matte lilac shadow closer to the crease and UD Blackout in the crease. The slightest hint of the bright pink shadow was used above the crease followed by UD Freestyle eyeshadow in between the colours to blend out any harsh lines.
I lined the top of the eyelid with Inglot AMC gel liner in black and followed the outer bottom lashline with an angled brush creating a slight outward flick for the bottom inner corner. I then lined the inner eye with Kiko's Double Glam Eye Liner but only using the Light Gold shade and following the outer flick on the inner bottom corner.
I went back with a wet finger and added a tiny bit of the indigo shimmer to the middle of the lids to make the colour pop even further and with a wet liner brush went underneath the eye with the same dark blue and indigo shadows, following the outer eye only.
To finish off the eye I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizin Ebony and filled in the inner brow with the lighter shade of the Brow Powder Duo. 
I added the Ardell 120 Demi lashes after I finished my face and Voila!
For the rest of the face I decided to do a toned down version of that Kim K/"bridal" contouring and used both the UD 24/7 concealer pencil and Graftobian Creme foundations to do this.
Be warned, the picture below is scary looking haha
I then used a beauty blender sponge to add the EX1 Invisiwear liquid foundation in F200 all over the face, using a small concealer/foundation brush to get in the nooks and crannies around the eyes and to clean around the eyebrows.
I didn't really need to set the foundation as it dries to a semi matte finish, but dabbed a bit of UD Razorsharp powder on my T-zone anyway as shine shows with flash.
I then added powder contour with the Sleek Contour Kit in Medium using my beloved Illamasqua Blush Up Brush, highlighting the top of the cheekbones too. Kiko Essential Bronzer in Sienna Melange was also used in between the contour and highlight to give depth.
For the lips, I used Sabaya lip pencil (from Dubai) with UD Revolution Lipstick in Fiend, accessorising with a navy scarf of course and the tikka from my own wedding:

And there you have it..
I have to say I'm even more impressed with the Kiko Palette I used for this look, the colour payoff is amazing and I'm particularly loving the sparklier shades as they can be used wet to make the sparkle stand out even more. I can now say that I'd give the palette 5 lipsticks out of 5!
I hope you enjoyed this look as much as I did creating it, I have to say I love this combination of blue and purple and certainly did when I did the older version in 2012!
