Purple Smokey Eye with Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette

As promised, here is another look created with the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette*. This time, it is a dramatic, purple/violet smokey eye. It is one of my favourite makeup looks and I wear it quite often. I am hoping to improve my blending skills with my new MAC 217 brush in the future, but this look was created before I got it :)

I started with shade Betrayal allover the lid and added a little bit of Shellshock in the inner corner. In the outer corners, I used Voodoo and blended it into the crease with a touch of Prank. Along the bottom lash line, I used a mixture if Voodoo and Prank. To blend everything out, I used the shimmery beige shade - Dope. As usual, I added black liquid liner (Bourjois Liner Pinceau) and a pair of falsies (Lash Boutique, Lydia).

Do you wear purple eye shadows?
