Hi there! My name is Hastie and I’m just a 21 year old Florida girl who loves her makeup! In this look, I went with something fun, edgy, but classic: a purple smokey eye! I believe that almost anyone can pull off the color purple, whether it’s with clothes, purses, or even makeup looks! What really inspired me to do this look was watching a video by a YouTube Guru (MakeupGeek) that she had recently posted. She did a purple smokey eye tutorial with some inexpensive items and I thought I can use what I have lying around & do my own interpretation. I hope that you enjoy & are able to do your own spin on this look. Remember, you don’t have to use the same exact products, you can use what you have available. Just have fun with it!
