Purple & Black dramatic make up

I watched Michael James' Blue Black dramatic eyeshadow makeup tutorial, and wanted to do quite similar look. Instead of blue I used purple. I really like this look, this is actually something I could wear everyday. It's very simple and easy to do, and you can change the colours if you want. 

Don't forget, blending makes perfect! 

I really should wear this kind of dramatic make up more often. It made me feel so comfortable, and somehow super confident! In this picture I don't look so happy though but you can see my gorgeous wedges!

Ipehishere suggested that I'd take a picture of the products that I use to do my make up. I think it's a good idea, and I'm going to continue doing this from now on. But now I'm thinking.. Should I list these products here on the end of the post or at the beginning? Somehow I'd prefer if the close-ups were the last pictures, but on the other hand I don't know if I want to start posts with the products list... What do you think?

Products used:
1) H&M - concealer
2) Bobby Brown - charcoal 12 black eyeshadow
3) H&M - Kitty Beach Party purple eyeshadow
4) H&M - Kitty Beach Party white eyeshadow
5) Luminelle - Péché mignon eyeshadow amande vanille
6) Wet N' Wild - kajal & eyeliner black black
7) Ludinelle - khol pencil, brun syrien 04
8) Rimmel London - stay matte pressed powder 001
9) Grimas - eyeshadow rouge 544
10) Oriflame - beauty power curl mascara

  17. i love this make up! i have try this on myself!

  18. this make-up fits very good to you :D and it looks fantastic!!

    that picture of products thing is a good idea ^^ but I would keep it at the bottom of the post...

  19. Thank you :D and nice makeup you did :D


  20. Wow, this make-up looks wicked awesome! It really brings out the colour of your eyes! You could always put up one or two photos, then the list of make-up, and then the rest of the photos!

    Unfortunately, I did not make up the pattern for the shirt, I just used one that I bought at a store, but I was looking for an easy one-day project, and it's soooo much easier to use a ready-made pattern than to make your own! I've tried making patterns up before, but I don't think I have quite enough experience to do it as efficiently as I'd like to.

    Siz: Thanks! I really like this make up too and I'm so going to wear something like this.. And it was so easy to do! Yeah, I thought so.. I'm going to keep that picture at the bottom of the post :)

    The-Chanel Girl: Thanks!!

    Ce qui m'inspire: Thanks! Oh, the shirt looked so different and interesting and I somehow thought that they wouldn't sell patterns like that at stores.. But nice. I know, it's much easier to use ready-made pattern.. I have to make patterns myself at school, so I'm learning it.. But I can just imagine how difficult it would be somehow who's just trying on her own to do them.

    Queni: Thanks!

    A Stylish Mixture: Thanks!

    xshumzx: Thank you! :) All I knowabout blending is that you just keep going till it's perfect..
    Thanks for the link! I've made a list, what make up looks to do and I added this one.. So stay tuned, I'm going to do it in the near future :) A step by step tutorial on that look.. Well, I can try. I've never tried tutorials before so I don't know how it's going to turn out.. But I'm going to try. :)

    Rebecca: Thank you! Yeah I'll check it.

    Marley: Thanks!! :) I'm sure you could be talented in make up terms.. Practise, experiment.. I think I have to make a post about that thing :DD

    Vicki: Aww thank you! I'm sure your make up isn't always a mess up close.. But yeah I always have problems with making the both eyes look the same, I've always wished that I'd have only one eye.. Make up would be so easy to do! And also eyebrows.. I could shave them off and have drawn ones because wouldn't have to worry about how to make another to look exactly the same.

    Queen D: Thanks!! :D

    SarahD: Thanks! :)

    DafnaDiamant: Thank you :) Me too! Fan of smokey eyes and bright and colourful make up looks..

    Johanna: Thanks for the suggerstion again :D I can do that! I just have to think of something wearable.. My make up looks often become quite not-so- wearable for most of people.. But I'm going to try to do something like that :)

    Sarah: Thanks!

    SandrHa: Thanks! I'm happy to hear that you like it and follow :) I'm going to check out yours!

    English Rose: Thank you!! :) I'm surely going to visit your blog more often, it's one of those I've bookmarked..

    BLIX: Thanks!

    Alive: Thanks :) It didn't took so much time to put it on though..

    ipehishere: Thanks! I'm using Sony DSC-H3 :)

    Siz: I've thought about posting my 'everyday make up look' here but I don't know if I should do it anymore.. As I haven't worn that make up lately at all, I've worn lots of different make up looks and avoided black :o I used to wear only black eyeshadow.. Now I've used turquoise and purple.. And today I had brown make up which is weird, I didn't think brown would look good but I actually like this :D Going to post here later today, maybe.
    I love silver! What silver colour you use? :) I don't have a good silver one, if I want silver I have to create it using black and white and glittery white eyeshadows.. But I'd love to get Illamasqua's silver cream.. It looks fab :)

    FashionGirl: Thanks!! :) i really like purple. I don't know how I got so many followers.. They just appeared :o Probably it helped a lot, that I follow many blogs and I visit many blogs and comment on their post.. That'show people find me :) I have an youtube account but it hasn't affected my blog at all, I only upload videos from gigs..

    Rebecca: You're welcome :) Have a nice day!

    Stevia: Thanks for the compiments and following!! :) I'll check your blog out!

    Sarah: Thanks!

    Marina e Camilla: Thanks!

    Gets: Thank you!! :D ♥

  51. Marilyn is really an icon.
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment
    Keep following
    Love, johanna

  52. well I have 2 types of "silver" it's not perfect but it looks good with the black
    one is called Eyefusion it's a set where 3 colours are in it's kind of smokey eye thingy...
    and the other is color workshop or something like that xD some really really cheap halloweenspecial ^^ hahah ^^

    yeah ^^ usig different colours is good :) to not get bored of that look but I still keep on using my really many different types of "black" xD and grey and well ^^
    though I should think of some new everyday thing ^^ coz it's really getting boring.. xD

  53. Love purple eyeshadow. I always thought it would only go well with brown eyes, but your pictures show it's great with blue and green, too! xoxo

  54. Johanna: She definitely is. Soo beautiful. I still haven't seen any movies where she's acting though. :o

    Siz: Cool :D You have to do a silver look and post it on your blog ;) My friend and I bought silver lipstick once, when we were buying products for our entry for Shiva Queen's makw up contests.. I think we didn't use the silver lipstick though for it, my friend kept it.. But I think it would probably be awesome as eyeshadow :D lol..
    Even though you'd use only one colour, I'm sure the make up isn't the same everyday.. So you won't get bored :) My normal black make up was different like everyday O_o Even though I tried to do the same as the previous day, it always ended up looking different.. :D
    Heey soon we can put on make up together and think of gorgeous looks together!! :D

    SabinePsynobsis: Thanks! I love purple eyeshadow too.. I don't like those "common rules" of what colour goes well with what coloured eyes.. etc. I think everything can go well with anything! :D


  55. okay I have to think of some look where I use my different types of silver ^^ ...
    silver lipstick? sounds interesting ^^ perhaps you should think of a look where you use that one :)
    yeah not 1:1 xD but it's nearly the same everyday incase I won't be thinkin to draw it higher or lower or use more different grey and black tones... xD but yeah during school it was nearly 1:1!
    (except when I used leo but this is no everyday thing xD)

    yeah :D can't wait ^^ ... I'm so happy I finaly can come and visit you in that lovely country :D

  56. Siz: Yeah, looking forward to se your silver looks :)
    They sell silver lipstick in Punanaamio where's some make up stuff and also costumes, face paints, etc.. If you want, we can visit that shop when you're here :D
    I could think of look where to use that lipstick but... The lipstick is my friend's XD
    Yeah.. :D The leo as everyday thing would be nice. XD Though it would take probably so much time to do it..
    Me too!! So happy for you and so happy to finally meet you :D

  57. oh xD well I thought you too bought such lipstick ^^

    yeah we could visit that shop :) would be nice

    nah it's not so much time to do ^^
    if you know how to do it's quite fast :)

    I feel like a little child on christmas or even happier about it xD haha
