Ziggy – Purple Smokey Eye feat. Too Faced Le Grand Chateau

  Today’s look is a purple smokey eye, a little edgy, a little fun and a little out there. Something for a night out. I used the Too Faced Le Grand Chateau to create the look.

This look is called Ziggy in honor of one of my biggest inspirations and first loves, David Bowie. You’ll be missed.

I think everyone has some special moment with David. From the first time, I saw him as a child as The Goblin King and growing up with his music since. So many memories big and small, he was the soundtrack to many of them. From intimate moments of my husband singing his songs to me outside of his apartment when we first met to playing his songs on the jukebox, quiet times alone with “Life on Mars” and dancing to “Heroes” at my wedding. He’s been with me for all my 28 years.

So, let’s put on our Bowie playlists and celebrate his life.

I used the purple based palette from  Le Grand Chateau by Too Faced for to create today’s look.

Each palette in the set had a name but I have no idea which is which because it wasn’t written on the palette itself.

Anyway, these are the shadows I used today. So pretty. Let’s get started!

As always I start with brows done and a primed eyelid.

I took “Rendezvous” (matte mauve)  throughout the crease are as our transition shade.

On the lid, I used “Provence” (shimmery purple with a slight blue shift) applied with a flat shader brush.

With the same brush, I applied “Tre Chic” (black with gold micro glitter) to the outer V and blended into the purple.

I went back in with “Provence”  with a damp brush to bring in some intensity by gently patting the shadow onto the lid.

I “Le Marais”  (white duo chrome with a purple/ pink shift) on the inner corner and just under the arch of the brow for a highlight. This shadow is gorgeous, I wish the picture did it justice.

I added a small wing and some liner on the upper lid with a gel liner. Then set it with “Tre Chic” (black with purple micro glitter)

On the lower lash line, I blended I mixture of “Rendezvous ” (matte mauve) and “Tre Chic” on the outer portion and blended over toward the inner corner, where most the pigmentation would be on the outer part.

I took “Provence” on the center part and blended it into the “Tre Chic”/”Rendezvous” combination.

Then back in with “Le Marais ” on the inner corner.

I tight lined with the gel liner as well to ground the look. My eyes can get kind of lost in the shadow if I don’t tight line when using bold colors.

And of course, I finished the eye off with tons of mascara.

I chose a mauve shade for the lips, for this, I went with Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in “Baci”. BTW “Tea Rose” from elf in the matte color formula is a great dupe.
