Vibrant Violet

When I saw that the incredibly talented Chrisspy  had posted this image to her Instagram earlier this week, I already knew that it was a look that I was going to try and recreate.

Chrisspy and BH Cosmetics have announced that they will be giving away a free palette to whoever can come up with the best recreation of her look - so this gave me even more reason to give it shot! 

Since I'm already a fan of BH Cosmetics, I decided to create my look using nothing but the eyeshadows out of their 2nd Edition 120 Color Palette. 

I really enjoyed this challenge, although I did forget to apply falsies - oops!

Fingers Crossed!

  • Motives by Loren Ridinger Eye Base
  • Hot pink eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette (2nd Edition) blended up into crease and lower lashline
  • Royal purple eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette (2nd Edition) to deepen outer crease and lower lashline
  • Medium blue eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette (2nd Edition) on outer third of lid
  • Lilac eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics 120 Color Palette (2nd Edition) on rest of the lid
  • Matte white eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics 120 Colour Palette (2nd Edition) on inner corner and brown bone 
  • Inglot AMC gel liner in #77 to line eyes, upper waterline and lower waterline
  • Eyeko Fat Brush mascara

  • Urban Decay Brow Box in 'Gingersnap'
