Plum Smokey Eye using Fifty Cent Eyeshadows!

Plum Smokey Eye using Fifty Cent Eyeshadows!Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! A while back when I was walking around our local Dollar General I discovered L.A. Colors had fifty cent single shadows! There weren't a lot to pick from, so I chose four shades I knew I'd get the most use out of. I chose a matte dusty mauve, a matte deep purple, a shimmery mauve color mixed with a warm brown tone, and the last one is a shimmery nude color. I'm not sure how many they actually had in store, most of the stuff was already picked over and some had been broken and thrown back on the display. They also had some mini glosses and fat liner / shadow pencils. I didn't use those today but they were decent for being so cheap. Right now I can tell you the shadows were pigmented, soft and blendable. The metallic shades were pretty decent just alone, but I did wet the lid shade for that metallic pop of color. Now lets get into the tutorial briefly!

Plum Smokey Eye using Fifty Cent Eyeshadows!
Today's tutorial is accompanied by a YouTube video again like I did a few weeks ago. I'm really liking filming and hope you're enjoying the videos as well. Starting out today's look I did all of my face makeup first and then moved onto the eyes. I primed with foundation and primer, I don't know why. I just felt like it lol, I set the lids with my setting powder for a crease free, blendable surface. This look ended up being super simple to do. I went in with the light mauve shade through the crease, placing down a munch of color to blend the dark purple into. I kept the darker purple in the outer third of my eyelid and brought it in a little further, just in the crease for depth. On the lid I took the metallic purple-ish brown and packed it all on the inner two thirds of the lid. I then decided to wet it to get more of the metallic finish! I took the shimmery nude color all in the inner corner and on my brow bone. The bottom last line is the two matte shades ombre'd out for a smooth transition, along with the shimmery nude on the lower inner corner / bottom lash line area.

I hope you loved today's tutorial and video as much as I do, it was a super easy and fun look to do. I would recommend picking up some of these shadows if you happen to come across them! Let me know if there is anything you want to see my try and test out on my channel and I'll try to make that happen!
