Autumn Night Makeup | Purple Smoky Eye


This is the makeup look I wore for a night out with friends to celebrate Oktoberfest at our local Biergarten. Since I was running late when my friend picked me up, I had no time to snap some pictures of my final makeup look. But I had fun recreating this look as a colored smoky eye is something I rarely do and really like!

+ I primed my eyes and even added a paint pot to make the eye shadow color pop. Since my eyes would be the focus, everything else had to be toned down a bit. I ended up using three eye shadows including a deep caramel crease color, purple-blue lid, and a highlight color. To do my brows, I filled them in with a brow pencil and followed up with a brow mousse to keep the hairs in place. Of course, I curled my little eyelashes.

+ For lips, I apply lip balm. Then, I line my lips with a nude lip liner. Afterwards, I line the bottom lip and cupid’s bow with a pinkie-brown liner. Finally, I top it all off with a terracotta lipstick that I have been loving for Fall.

+ For my face, I used the foundation that makes my skin look flawless and has a low SPF. I concealed and powdered my under eye area. Then, I go in with a more dramatic contour with the taupe colored blush. I also bronzed my skin and added a highlighting natural colored blush so it doesn’t take away from the entire look.

I just learned how to perfect my regular smokey eye, so it is exciting for me to be able to do this with colored eye shadows as well. I hope you like it and Thank you for reading!

What’s another good color for a fun smokey eye?

  1. I like to do green smokey eyes! I put a taupe color in the crease and then about 3 shades of green with the lightest being olive toned to a deep Forrest color as the outer v defining color 🙂
