I was lucky enough to be in the crowd the night Adrian Neville, or Neville as he is known now, debuted on the main WWE roster, and I quickly became a huge fan of his new look. I love capes in wrestling, something about the over the top nature of wearing a cape appeals to me (shocking, I know). Thus it seemed only appropriate to try and formulate a look based off the purple gear Neville has been sporting lately, and keeping it dramatic while also somewhat wearable.
For this look I started with the eyes because I knew I would get a lot of fallout from the shadows. I started by priming my eyes with the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer, and then began applying the different shades of purple. The palettes I used for this look were both by Sleek because I am a huge fan of their pigmentation. I started with the light purple shimmer color from the Snapshot palette and placed that at the inner corner of my eye. I then went in with the purple shade from the Ultra Mattes V.1 palette and blended the two. Finally, I took the darkest purple from the Snapshot palette and applied that to the outer corner of my eyes, using a blending brush to blend it inward and distribute the product leftover on the brush into the crease to create some definition. I then wiped that blending brush off and took a bit of the shimmery off white color from the Snapshot palette and blending that in under the eyebrow and into the inner tear duct.
At this point, I took an eyeliner brush and black cream eyeliner from ELF and lined my upper lash line. While that was setting I took a smaller eyeshadow brush and ran some of the darkest purple color under my bottom lashes. I then applied mascara to both the top and bottom lashes. The one I used was Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte, but any mascara will do. I then applied false eyelashes. The ones I am wearing here are the Oh, Honey! Lashes from the Katy Perry/Eylure line. After the lashes were applied and dried, I ran some of the same black eyeliner over them to cover any white glue left from application. I finally finished the eyes with some purple glitter liner. The one I used here was the Revlon Photoready Eye Art in Lilac Luster. I personally feel like the eyeshadow portion of this product is weak, which is why I don’t use it often, but the glitter half is great and there’s a wide range of colors to choose from in the line.
I kept my face and lips simple because the eyes were already so busy. I first used the Smashbox Color Corrector because I have a lot of natural redness and it really helps to control that. Then I applied foundation and concealer. I’m trying out a new foundation which is the Mary Kay CC Cream in Very Light, and the concealer used was NW20 by Mac. I set those with a plain powder (HD Powder by City Color) using a large face brush. For my lips I used the Kate Moss for Rimmel London lipstick in 03, which is a very neutral taupe color.
