Step By Step Purple, Green and Gold Eye Makeup Tutorial For Fall (Drugstore Makeup)


I hope that all of you who celebrated the Sukkos holiday over the past 2 weeks or so have enjoyed it as much as I have. I packed and packed boxes during some parts of it where as some other families were out on fun outings. But I can't complain! I am glad that I was able to also spend some part of it cooking in the kitchen- what I love to do best and I am also grateful to have been able to have relax for some time in the refreshing upstate air, swinging in my parents hammock out back while visiting them over this past long weekend. For most of you it'll be back to the routine of school and work I assume. I am not only getting back to routine but also moving my entire apartment worth of stuff from the past 5 years to our new house. It is exhilarating but exhausting to say the least! I managed to finish most of the packing today so when the truck pulls up tomorrow morning we'll be are ready to go. I don't know how often I'll get around to blogging until everything settles down and I figure out setting for pictures, videos etc. so I apologize for that in ahead of time. 


For now, I hope you will enjoy this purple, green and gold fall appropriate eye makeup tutorial. In a post last week, I talked about some of my staple makeup products for fall so I thought I'd show how I used some of them today. I have been loving utilizing my Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette ever since purchasing it a few weeks ago and I was amazed by the amount of beautiful eye looks I've been able to create using it. This is just one of them using my favorite eye shadow in the palette which is a purple-green duo chrome of sorts. If you have yet to own any wet n wild eye shadows you really must go out and get some, they truly are amazing. Watch this weeks video here to see how I got this eye look from beginning to end or read till the end of the post where I will insert it as usual. This eye makeup look is not only very simple to achieve but is also based solely around drugstore makeup products (although some of the brushes are from Mac) to make it a little less expensive and realistic for those on a budget. If you would like to re-create the look then please have in mind that you don't have to use every item I specifically used and that any item you have on hand will do. 

Here is how I got the look: 


Products and Brushes Used:



1. Apply the Rimmel crayon shadow all over the entire eyelid. This gives the powder shadows something to stick to and keeps them from moving around or creasing at all. It also gives the look a gorgeous gold background.

2. Using a flat shader brush (mac 239) lay down the duo chrome purple - green color all over the entire lid and up into the crease as well. Using some more of the product on a blending brush (mac 217) blend out any harsh edges around the crease by going back and forth in windshield wiper motions.

3. With a pencil brush (mac 219) bring some of that same purple-green color down under the lower lash line area.

4. Using a large eye highlighting brush (elf c brush) apply the yellow color in the palette to the inner corners making sure to bring it down to the lower lash line a bit as well to meet the first color applied there previously. Then add some of that same yellow color to the brow bone as well.

5. Line the upper lash line with a smudgy kohl liner. Apply it in dots to the upper lash line area and then lightly smudge it in a bit using the pencil brush again which should still have some of that purpley color left from applying it to the lower lash line area. Then apply that same liner to the waterline and upper waterline as well if you'd like to tight line. 

6. Apply mascara to the upper and lower lashes.


Hope this has gotten you into that Fall mood!
