♕ Make Up Look ~ Purple Rain ♕
{Feat. Freedomination Collection}

If I'd have to name one of my favourite looks I've made in the last couple of month, I'll surely name this one immediately! I love everything about this look ♥__♥
And to think that I was going for "something simple" - I wanted to try this particular eyeliner style (inspired by the amazing @SwayzeMorgan on Instagram) that is really rock and bold... But I ended up doing this purple look with tons and tons of glitters XD

I used all NABLA eyeshadows for this look, mostly from the Freedomination Collection - and I think this look represents quite well the concept of freedom, with the bold lines and the glitter rain :D Speaking of glitters, these ones are by Glitter Palace (I mentioned them in my Summer Most Played): they're named Aretha and are made of purple stars, hexagons, holographic discs and a pinch of red dust. They really added a special touch to the look, love them *_* Lats, the eyeliner is once again Trooper by Kat Von D ♥

After priming my lids I started right away with the lid shade: I used Eresia* on both upper and lower lids. When I reached the crease area, I started blending it with a clean brush; then I applied Lotus* into the crease and on the outer corner, patiently blending it out to achieve a  soft and smooth C shape. (On a side note, these new Super Matte shadows are beyond amazing: the pigmentation is great and they're so easy to blend. In case you haven't got any yet, I highly recommend to buy them!)
I also blended Lotus on the lower lid, then I moved to the transition shade: I used Peach Velvet (which is from the plain Matte range) to soften the shape even more - I wanted a really subtle blending. Needless to say, I used Peach Velvet on the lower lid too. Once I was happy with the blending, I applied Antique White on my brow bone (I might have to buy a new one soon, it's my most used eyeshadow ever XD). I defined my lower lashline using a black eyeshadow (Nocturne) and, lastly, for my inner corner highlight, I used Alchemy.

Eyeliner time! Using the Tattoo Liner in Trooper by Kat Von D Beauty I did the winged line first - which is pretty thin at the beginning, then get thicker and thicker towards the outer corner, and ends with a bold, slightly curved wing. Then I added the zigzag detail - which was trickier than I anticipated, it took me a while to nail the pattern - then I added the line and the point on the inner corner.
At this point I was ready to make it rain glitters XD I applied a thin layer of eyelash glue on the centre of the upper lid (going up to the crease) and I dabbed the Aretha glitters over it; I kept adding glitters until I was happy with the result, then I moved on the lower lid: I applied the glue on the centre, moving downwards, tear-like - then once again I dabbed the glitters over it. (N.B. I applied my foundation before this step, of course!)
Once I was done with the glitters all I had to do was applying the usual black eyepencil on my waterline, then false lashes and mascara.
