For today’s #MakeupMonday I’m doing this purple and gold smokey eye, that will look so good with a tan or, if you are a ghost like me, with more pale skin.
My family has a B&B here in Rome and one of the room is purple and gold so that’s where my inspiration comes from, in case you were wondering. It reminded me of Aladdin, oriental princesses and something out of a dream (I don’t know what I’m saying at this point I hope you get my view!)
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I quickly want to tell you that starting from this week, I’ll be posting a NEW SERIES of articles every Tuesday and Thursday with my sista Julia so we hope we will see you tomorrow for the new post. We are THRILLED!

In the outer corner, I’ve used the dark purple from that little quad (the quad is discontinued but any matt dark purple will work) mixed with MAC Pairfait Amour. I’ve used the same mix on the lower lashline too.
