Video Tutorial - Date Night Purples

Here is the 1st of 3 video tutorials that I am going to do on the 120 color BH Cosmetics palettes.  I used all the colors from palette #2.  This sultury purple look is beautiful for spring.  Only three colors are used.  You can do this with or without false eyelashes.  Post your efforts in the comment box or on my facebook page!

You will need:
BH Cosmetics Palette #2:  Gold/white color from top palette, 3rd from left, 2 row. 
                                         Frosty violet purple color 2nd palette, 4th from left, 1st row.
                                         Matte bright purple 2nd palette, 4th from left, 4th row.
*You can use any of these colors with makeup you already have.
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Black eyeliner
Large eyeshadow brush
Medium eyeshadow brush
Large blending brush
Pencil brush
Pinky purple neutral blush
Pinky purple neutral liner and lipstick
Mascara or False Eyelashes

Think of your eyes in fraction 3rds.
Blend blend blend!
Bring the eyeshadow to the lower lash line in lew of eyeliner.  This makes for a softer smokey look.
Keep the inner eye with the lightest color to add a pop of brightness.
Since your eyes are very dramatic, stick to neutral cheeks and lips so not to over power your face.
If you don't have false eyelashes use a volumizing mascara in two coats.
