Tutorial: Purple Glam

Hello you lovely ladies (and gents if there are any out there)! I was digging through my makeup a few weeks ago, trying to organize and pack things to move to my new apartment.  At the same time, I was thinking about doing a purple look of some sort, because even though I'm hearing over and over again that purples make brown eyes pop, it's not a color I'm drawn to when doing my makeup.  So here is a purple glam look, perfect for clubbing or homecoming, which is unfortunately created with eyeshadows that are either discontinued or unavailable to most people in the United States.  Obviously I didn't really think this through.  I just wanted to use some products that I have not touched in a long time.  At least they are colors that can be easily replaced! :D

In any case, here is the list of products used:

-Wet n Wild Idol Eyes: Techno
-NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil: Cottage Cheese
-Inglot eyeshadow: Dark purple w/green and pink shimmer
-Milani Shadow Wear Quad: 07 Wild Violets [DISCONTINUED]
-UD 24/7 Glide on Pencil: Zero
-L'oreal Collagen Mascara

-L'oreal True Match Foundation: Honey Beige (N6)
-Smashbox Pressed Powder: Fair/Light
-Stila Bronzing Powder: Shade 01
-Milani Glimmer Strips: Berry Glimmer [DISCONTINUED]
-Smashbox Under Eye Brightener

-Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick: On the Mauve
-Bare Escentuals Buxom Lipgloss: Amber

Here's my messy messy desk with the crapload of stuff I used for the look.

And here are more pictures of this look :D

If you do decide to try out this look, it would be SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME if you send me pics! Lots of them! Same with looks for any of my other tutorials.

Boy my internet is slow. Dang lack of bandwidth.....
