LOOK: Smokey Lilacs and Purples

This isn't exactly a look of the day per se, since I was only playing with my makeup and just put it one eye, half of my face, and on my lips. But nevertheless, I thought it might be worth placing on my blog, for my records and for your viewing. I really liked the effect of smokey purples, and I hope you do too! :)

I used:

Cetaphil Moisturiser
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium and Medium Dark
MAC Pink Swoon blush on cheeks

Hyal System Concealer pencil - I just found this at home
MAC Soft Ochre paint pot
MAC eyeshadows in Up at Dawn (bright lilac), Contrast (dark blue-violet), Howzat (dark grey) and Seedy Pearl (light pink/violet duochrome)
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Zero
Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara

MAC Way to Love lipstick

What do you think? Do you wear smokey purples?

Please excuse my brows; I'm growing them out to be re-shaped again xx
