Purple Smokey Eye Tutorial

Some of you may be missing summer but I couldn’t be happier that Fall has made its way to Ohio! The first chilly day we had, I grabbed my Lorac PRO Palette 2 and got to work on this Fall inspired purple smokey eye tutorial.

Purple Smokey Eye

I always begin by applying an eye shadow primer. Today I’m using the Lorac Behind The Scenes primer that came with the Lorac PRO Palette 2.  Then, using a large blending brush, I’m going to apply Nectar (light peach matte) all over, starting with my lid and ending a little below my brow bone. Blend this out really well.

Next, grab a black eyeliner pencil. Try to use one that is easy to smudge out. Apply this all the way across your lash line. This doesn’t need to be perfect so just strive for mediocrity here.

Now I’m going to dip my smudge brush into just a tiny bit of Cocoa (dark brown shimmer) and use this to smudge out my eyeliner. You basically just want to run your brush back and forth across your lash line until the eyeliner is nice and soft. Depending on what eyeliner you used, it may take a while.

Then I’m going to use a flat eye shadow brush to apply Plum (dark matte purple) over my entire lid.

Gently blend out the purple, focusing on the edges.

Next I’m going to apply Chrome (frosted taupe) in my crease, taking it all the way from the outer corner to the inner corner and gently blending it upwards a little.

To complete this eye shadow look, I’m going to take a pencil brush and go all the way across my lower lash line with Plum (dark matte purple), making sure to connect my lower lash line with the shadow on my lid.

Finish up the look by applying mascara or falsies and lining your waterline, if that’s your thing. I’m using a NYX eyeliner pencil in Jewel and Ardell #206 lashes.

  1. I usually avoid smokey eyes but need to work on them! Also I’ve been sadly avoiding the really lovely plum in this palette so I’ll need to try this out!
    Any chance you could do a look using the Jade in the Lorac Pro II sometime?

    1. I have some weird aversion to wearing the color green so I haven’t even used that shade in a look yet! lol It’s a beautiful shade though so I’ll try it out soon and if all goes well, I might use it in a tutorial.

  2. Would you consider doing a tutorial on which brushes to use for particular purposes/effects? I for one, don’t one brush from another….

  3. You are SO good! This looks awesome! The touch of “Chrome” really made this somehow “unexpected” and less boring, I think. That’s some talent right there, ya’ll!

  4. Wow! Out of all of the Lorac pro 2 tutorials I’ve seen, this is definitely my favorite! Beautifully done. I will be pinning this immediately, haha.

    Just wondering, are you planning on getting the Lorac Mega Pro palette?
