Melt Cosmetics By Starlight Look

As a chronic purple lipstick hoarder, I wanted to pair Melt's By Starlight lipstick with something that wasn't just a simple flick of eyeliner and felt like some heavy eye makeup too. Being a magpie, I thought I'd couple it with some sparkly goodness too.

Today was one of those makeup days where it ended up looking nothing like I had originally planned but ended up being satisfied with it anyway. I was planning on just a simple purple smokey eye but then decided to wing it out with my eyeshadow. I've been feeling as though I don't give my Illamasqua pure pigments as much love for a while so I've been trying to use them more. Static is the first pure pigment I bought, normally it gives off a subtly pink sparkle but over a black base it leans violet. 

After priming, I created a heavy winged cat eye with my black shadow then sweeped the crease with Illamasqua's static pure pigment. I then lined my lower lash line and blended in some of Urban Decay's Urban shadow from the Electric palette. Next, I removed any fall out and applied my foundation, lipstick and blush.

  3. I love that Melt purple lipstick! I'm debating on getting it, but I already have so many purples, lol. How similar is it to Pretty Zombie 3 Witches? That's my favorite purple, & sort of what I measure all other purples against.
