Color Changing Cat Eye

Hello! Today’s look is a color changing teal and purple cateye.  These are two of my favorite colors so I had to do this look.  I had participated in a makeup look contest for Mon Ennui cosmetics.  Everyone who entered recieved samples of the new colors and the two winners got the colors named after them! Lina Blanche, a shimmery white with purple sparkles, and Jaime Noir a black with teal sparkles. When blended together the color changing happens! It also comes out upon adding the shadow to water for a more metallic lavender and teal color.  I paired this look with Lime Crime’s D’lilac since the colors were so so similar.   I used a peachy blush to warm up the cool colored look. 

The color changing magic that is expressed when both colors are blended together

Purple and Gold Makeup Look

This looks was also found on cutoutandkeep.net as a tutorial.  It involves purlple and gold colors.  These are complimentary colors and they work well together in this look.  I used Lime Crime Airborne Unicorn Opaque Lipstick on my lips and Lime Crime Magic Dust in Nymph.  A purple shadow was used on the outer part of my eye.  Airborne Unicorn is a lovely rich purple that is a stunningly vibrant shade.  Nymph placed in the corners of the eyes is a white shadow that when put on the lids turns into a pale gold, which works well on my skin tone since I personally have cool undertones and do not pull off gold and bronzes well.  This also helps the look achieve balance by using warm colors on the eyes, the purple is a more red purple and the gold is warm as well. The purple lipstick is more cool which contrasts nicely with this look.  My hair has purple and teal feathers and I have a turquoise necklace on! My favorite colors include purple and teal so I like to create looks that use both of them!
