Start with priming your lid:

Use flat brush to apply MUFE #07 (white) to whole lid:

Then use crease brush to apply MUFE #92 (purple) to crease. I applied the shadow in winged shape:

Then I used blending brush to blend first #92, and then I blended the purple with MUFE #26 (pink):

Next I applied a hint of MUFE #04 (black) to crease, and blended it with #92:

Some more blending, now with MUFE #09 (lilac):

Then highlighter, MUFE #07 (pearly white) to highlight:

Then lower lashline, I applied MUFE #92 with detail brush, then blended it with #09:

Next step is liner, I applied thick black line with Palladio black liquid liner:

Then mascara:

And I finished the look with dramatic false lashes (Sugarpill Daydreamer):

And the look is done!

I appreciate this for what it is, but I miss the more wearable looks that were on this site :( I need to be glam AND business appropriate.

Nice look! I would like to see you smile more or look happier – you have beautiful makeup on, so why not celebrate!?

This look is awesome!!!!!! Confused by the comments…..minus the blue hair, this can be worn to work! Also, I thought this was a makeup tutorial not a toothpaste or orthodontist ad! Why do people care if you smile? Your happiness shows in your artistry! Thank you for sharing what you do, you/it rocks!

Thanks for sharing! For what it’s worth, I don’t think you need to smile, smiling for cameras is always kind of painful, plus I do think it’s a little sexist that pretty women are expected to always look happy.

Beautiful as usual!! I really love it! Just a question: What lipstick are you wearing? It looks great! :)

I’d love to know what she put in her waterline. I never get mine that dark when I use a kohl pencil. Anyone have ideas?

Gel Liner (BH Cosmetics-Black) is what I use and it works great, but there are a lot of others out there. I have real watery eyes and using a pencil liner (even waterproof) left me with liner under my eyes instead of on my water line where I had originally put it. The gel liner stays in place and lasts all day for me.

Hope this helps Jody. ;)

Sorry I forgot to mention that you use an eyeliner pencil to apply. Just dip it into the gel and line your water line.

Beautiful! I Love It!
I work in a professional environment and I would totaly rock this look.
ladies just blend the purple a bit more or use a lighter shade and use a less dramatic lash.
Problem sloved.:)

I love this look, but I agree with the above comments about more wearable looks. I miss them. :(

Your looks really are gorgeous, though.
