Indie Blues & Purples Makeup Look

So this post was meant to go up a while ago but with combination of finishing university, going to Disney World and leaving to work on the ship all within a two week period, I kinda pushed blogging to the back burner. It had been a while since I experimented with colour without having an end “goal” so for this look I just went with it, to result in a purple and blue gradient effect. The images really don't do it justice as in life the purple was alot more visible in the crease. I tried to use makeup that I hadn't touched in a while as I realise that I have way too much that just sits there. Unfortunately, It’s been so long that i cant remember the exact products I used but it did include alot of indie brands such as Chinovi, BFTE and Victorian Disco. To begin I applied a matte white (Sugarpill Tako) all over the lid then patted a light blue onto the centre of the lid, continuing with a darker blue on the outer corner, blending them all together and using the same colour placement under the eye. Next I applied a medium purple to the crease before blending a dark purple into the outer corner. Finally I added a white highlight shade to the inner corner, brow bone and inner lid before finishing with liquid liner and mascara. My lipstick is one of my favourite natural shades, ELF Matte Lip Pencil in Tea Rose.

Blues and purples have to be some of my favourite shades to work with, there is just so much shade variation and they are so versatile. What are your favourite colours to work with?
Apologies for the brief not very detailed post, I'm currently sitting in my ship cabin while docked in Naples with some free time before I start work, I’m going to do an update post regarding my cruise ship adventures soon on my travel blog and I may do one here if anyone is interested in how I’m getting on. I do have a few beauty posts that i can put together but this blog is probably going to be quite inactive until I return to the UK. Furthermore, I have Disney World vlogs uploading on my YouTube channel from my recent trip there at the beginning of June is anyone is interested, or if you would like a roundup on here just let me know!
Thank you for baring with me <3
