Lavender Smoke: MAC Crystal, Shale, Grape and Macroviolet
—-
This look layers mulitple shades of silvery purples for a look that’s monochromatic but not monotonous. 
If you own Lime Crime’s Chinchilla lipstick or like that middle-ground between purples and greys, this is a look that goes with it. 

Clockwise from top: MAC Crystal, MAC Shale, MAC Grape pigment, blend of MAC Frozen White pigment and Reflects Transparent Pink, Lime Crime Chinchilla lipstick, and MAC Palladium Metal X Cream Shadow
—-
Step 1: Apply MAC Shale, or any smoky grey-purple to the two outer corners of the eyes, and along the lower lash line.


—-
Step 2: Pack a soft silvery violet in the centre. MAC Crystal is a beautiful option because it’s a duochrome light grey with a violet sheen. It’s not the most pigmented shadow around, so you will need to pack and layer a few times to build up intensity.

—-
Step 3:  Deepen the corners with a touch of Grape pigment (I’m using the limited edition Crushed Metal version, but you can use the normal one).

—-
Step 4: Dip the brush tip into more grape pigment and then smoke out the edges of the eye look.

—-
Step 5: Using a blunt tipped detail brush, apply a deep metallic purple gel liner (MAC Macroviolet) thickly along upper and lower lash lines. Build up the line so it looks thick and solid. Leave out any flicks and the outer corners.

—-
Step 6: Curl lashes and apply mascara. Then dust a translucent glittery violet to the brow bones and tops of cheek bones.
