Electric Purple Makeup tutorial

I wore this makeup look in my recent videos but didn't do a tutorial for it. Since it was requested by many of my viewers and readers, I decided to go ahead and film a separate video for it. I hope you like this bright and fun purple look!

Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Mont Blanc, MAC Blonde MSF, MAC Studio Finish concealer

MAC Greasepaint Stick in Slick Black, Barry M 102 Dazzle Dust, Catrice eyeshadows in 280 Heidi Plum and 220 The Violent Violet, Ben Nye Cosmic Violet e/s, Ben Nye Toast e/s, MAC Feline kohl pencil, Max Factor Xperience Volumizing Mascara, MAC Brows in Spiked, Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Gaze

MAC Go For It lipstick, Barry M Nr.129 lipstick, Gosh Cool Lip Jam in 100

Color Club - Jewel of a Girl

MAC Go For It lipstick was limited addition, but I was told that MAC Pro Longwear lipcream in Goes and Goes is a good dupe for it. Also Illamasqua Fetish is a good purple lipstick, or Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Fierce. They will all give you similar results as in the video.

  11. Thank you so much! This is totally my style, and I'm especially excited about the lip colour!

    Love the look! I think a good dupe for "Go for It" is the Prolongwear Lipcreme in "Goes and Goes", although "Goes and Goes" is a little more opaque and not as shiny.

    Julia, as always as Excellent Make Up. Last night I tried to do it, sure that is not the same if I
    use different brands, but it is a good option! Kisses Julia.

  14. Those colours are very beautiful for green eyes! ^^

    I love your make-up, but it's a pity: I have brown eyes...

  15. Cool tones really work for you. I'm a little bit jealous since I love them, but have to work really hard to incorporate them in my MU. :(

    damn... :O you're good girl:)

    hello, my name is Lise and i am soon 15 now, as you see i'm from Norway. i really love yore makeup tutorial's, but do you think you can make one with daily makeup, that don't look like it's to much and don't take a lot of time?
    and maybe one you can use if you wearing glasses? that would be fantastic:)
    hope you will consider it:)

  20. Love watching your videos. My grandfather was born in Bern, Switzerland and moved to the United States when he was about 4 years old. I love watching anything about Switzerland. I live in Rochester, NY and look forward to watching and reading your Blogs/Vlogs. Thanks for all the time you put into your videos. I especially enjoyed your "bloopers" at the end. It really shows we are all human and make mistakes and flubs. Really enjoy everything you do. You remind me of my 28 year old daughter, Kira. Very talented and creative.

  21. Hi there! I have learned so much from your tutorials and i am enjoying make up again! =]
    so here's my request... there is a commercial (here in the us -- im sure it's all over youtube too) with J Lo and the new Fiat and I just love her make up. I look NOTHING like J Lo (giggle) but i am olive complected with dark brown hair and brown eyes. I know her make up would look good on me =0/
    Could you please do a tutorial on that?? Please???? lol thank you! =D

  22. WOW! The purple is absolutely stunning. I really love that lipstick. Don't think that I have ever seen a purple lipstick but really like it.
