Gothic Glamour

Ahhh, the smokey eye. An easy way to instantly vamp up your look. It's sexy, elegant and is a great way to show your more daring side. For extra oomph I added a gorgeous, mid toned purple shade to this look, keeping the lid a jet black matte for that extra gothic feel along side thick, sexy lashes.

The great part about this look is the purple can be substituted for any other colour that fits your preferences, or to a shade that is much more suited to your individual skin tone and eye colour.

Give it a go and try incorporating your favourite colours!

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • George at Asda satin soft khol eye pencil in 01 Black all over lid as a base

  • Medium purple eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette (2nd Edition) to deepen crease

  1. A smoky eye blended out with purple is one of my all time favorite looks. This looks absolutely stunning. And maybe it's just me (it probably is) but I really like the slight contrast of the shadow and your brow color.

    1. Thanks, Shanna! I'm really pleased you like it. I actually planned to do my brows a darker shade for this look but now I'm glad I decided to stick with my usual colour.

  2. Absolute perfection. I'm definitely going to try this! I love black and purple together.

  3. very nice make up! =)
    You're very precise !
