FOTD: Purple smokey eye

Hello everyone!

I was playing around with one of my favourite palettes, the Professional Eyeshadow Palette from Active Cosmetics, and I really liked the end result.  The lighting in not great and the eye make-up was much darker in person but I wanted to show you my Face Of The Day nonetheless.  Here are some photos of yesterday's FOTD!

Here's a list of everything I used:

Face - 
  • Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm (as a primer)
  • Essence Stay All Day 16h Foundation (20 Soft Beige) mixed with a little moisturiser for lighter coverage
  • Essence Stay All Day 16h Concealer (20 Soft Beige)
  • Yesensy Blusher  (07)
  • Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder - Waterproof
Eyes - 
  • Active Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Palette
I also used this palette in a previous FOTD post!

These are the colours I used for this smokey eye! (Dark brown, purple and a nude highlight colour)
  • Yesensy Retractable Eyeliner (01 Black)
  • L'Oreal Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner (Carbon Black)
  • Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara 


  • Essence Eyebrow Stylist Set (01 Natural Brunette Style)
  • Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara (Browny Brows 02)

Lips -
  • Essence Long-lasting Lipstick (13 Love Me)

If you are interested, I reviewed some of these products in a previous favourites post.
