Crazy Purple Eye and Red Lip Look

Hello lovely internet guys and girlies.

The look I have for you today is the bonkers purple eye and red lip combo I did for our friend's birthday night out.

Recently I have been rocking a more neutral look, with a shaded crease, like this one, or silver smokey eyes (which are my standby look for any night out). Feeling a bit bored with both of these colour combos I wanted to go for something completely different, so came up with a look influenced by this video by Tanya Burr and this one by Pixiwoo.

Hence, a crazy purple eye, which I originally teamed with a nuder lip, that's a bit more wearable:

^ That one was originally the whole of my face, but it came out a bit creepy, so I cropped it for you.

An hour later I was sat admiring it and then remembered the Pixi2woo video and thought, yes, a mental red lip would go with this coo-coo purple eye perfectly. Et voila. Apologies for the very silly face pulling, this was at 4 o'clock in the morning the other day:

Products I used:

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in no.2 Light (actually a touch too dark for me, but the lightest I could get when I was buying concealer in a rush this summer)
MAC Matchmaster Foundation in 1.5

MAC Pearlglide Eye Liner in Rave (this was a limited edition purple glitter kohl liner from absolutely ages ago, but any purple creamy textured product to use as a base would work as a substitute)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Fishnet
This was in an old palette of my flatmate's, but Urban Decay recycle colours so frequently in their palettes that you're bound to find it again. MAC Stars & Rockets is an okay substitute, though its texture's not as satiny. I used this all over the lid, up to the crease, and under the eye pretty heavily
MAC Eyeshadow in Swish
I blended this lightly into my crease
Benefit High Beam Highlighter
I used this under my brows
Sleek Bad Girl Palette
I used the glittery purple just on the lid, more concentrated close to the lash line, but very well blended so as not to darken up the look too much
Sleek Storm Palette
I used the matte black (which is actually featured in the Bad Girl palette now I think of it) to line all around my eyes. It actually lasted really, really well.
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

Sleek Storm Palette - the matte darker brown

Collection 2000 Bronze Glow in 01 Sunkissed
This was one of my birthday presents from my flatmates and I really like it - I've never owned a bronzer before! It doesn't show up as much in the photo though.

For the neutral-ish lip:
No7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick in 40 Lovely
This really is lovely - so balmy and I got it in a free gift set!
For the red lip:
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner in Red Rush
I bought a replacement of this when I lost the first, I adore it so much! I used this all over the lips as a base
Clinique High Impact lipstick in 12 Red-y To Wear

And there you have it. I hope this was of interest to you - I intend to continue to be a bit bolder with my make up in future as this was so much fun!
