Purple Smoke- Glamour Doll Eyes

This week's look is something that I've been craving for some time!! I've been needing a purple smoky eye like I've been needing a doughnut and a full body massage... and then a cocktail and then another doughnut! Oh girl! If I went into detail about my current life stress, you would run to me with an adult beverage and a hug!  BUT I digress!!  Let's talk makeup!


The colors featured for this look are from Glamour Doll Eyes. A fantabulous brand that I've supported over the years.  The owner, Vee, is an absolute sweetheart.  I love her makeup and want nothing but success for her :-)  (P.S. I am not being paid to do this- All Glamour Doll cosmetics were my own purchases.)
 
CHECK OUT THESE COLORS!!!

WITH FLASH
WITHOUT FLASH

Ahh!! My beloved smoky eye!!


Here are the details:
After foundation (Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse), powder, and brows are done...

EYES:
* Primer- Urban Decay Primer Potion (over entire lid and brow bone), and Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Slate on lid only.
* Light pale shadow dusted from brow bone to crease. I used Ulta shadow in Naked.
* Inner Corner- Glamour Doll shadow in Typical Girl
* Mid Lid- Glamour Doll shadow in Glam Girl
* Outer Corner/Crease- Glamour Doll in Nymphette.  This color is  A M A Z I N G. This is part of the Bloggers Collection. I ♥ Nymphette! 
* I used  After Prom as a delicate blender shade, softening up the edges from the crease to the brow.
* Then I dusted Nymphette and Glam Girl on my lower lid to bring on the smoke!

* Final touches: Black liner applied to lash line and water line.
* Then applied mascara, followed by Red Cherry Lashes #415



Blush:
* THIS shade from one of my favorite Coastal Scents palettes!
Lips:
* Nyx Paparazzi Lipstick followed by Whipped lip gloss.


I hope you like it!!  
Vanity and Vodka is now very brand new to Facebook (yay!!!), so feel free to stroll on over and give it a "Thumbs Up".  It is ever so appreciated!

xoxo,
Colleen
P.S. Thank you so much for being bursts of sunshine to me! I am so so grateful!  I hope you have a beautiful day that is easy and full of joy :-)

I'd love to run to you and give you a shot of Russian vodka and ginormous hug;-) But to be serious - I hope your stress will go away soon... or you will go away from it;-) One of the very successful guys I know once said: "If you're going thru hell, make sure you KEEP going" Keep us updated, Colleen, sometimes a good talk (post) may help a lot!
