Plush Purple and Golden Makeup Look

Plush Purple and Gold Makeup Look

Hi dear all,

The above mentioned look, as the name suggests is plush, purple and golden. It is apt for an evening out or a party or wedding or such.

This look can also be an alternative for black smokey eyes. If you find black to stark for your taste, this look can give you dramatic eyes and you won’t have to worry about Panda eyes.

So let’s get started….

Here are things I am using for the look-

For Face:

  • Maxfactor Age Renew Foundation in Bronze
  • Maybelline Whitestay UV compact in Fawn
  • Colorbar Peachy Rose Blush
  • Colorbar Just Earth Blush

Face Makeup

For Eyes:

  • MAC Veluxe e/s in Trax (A jewel toned purple with a looot of golden shimmer)
  • MAC matte in e/s in Embark (A dark matte brown)
  • MAC Frosted e/s Bagatelle (A pure solid gold)
  • Lakme Intense Shine liquid Eyeliner in Black
  • Colorbar i-define pencil in Desert Glow
  • Maybelline Colossal Volume Express mascara
  • Lotus Herbal kajal

Eye makeup

For Lips:

  • Colorbar Metallic lipstick in Pleasure
  • Maybelline Watershine Gloss

For Lips

Let’s start painting!!!

  • On a cleansed, toned and moisturized face, apply foundation and concealer to create a flawless base.
  • I have used compact powder to get a matte finish.

Without Makeup

  • Apply an eye shadow primer on your lids. I use a thin layer of concealer for the same.
  • Colour your entire lid in the purple colour.

Lid COlour

  • Apply the dark brown colour in the crease and outer corner of your eye.


  • Blend well.


  • Apply a golden eye shadow on the brow bone to create a stark contrast which enhances the lid colour.


  • Apply the golden e/s on the outer corner of lower lash line.
  • Next, draw a thin line with the black eye liner on the upper lash line.
  • You can wing it out for added drama.


  • Do up both the eyes.

Both eyes

12.    Draw a thick line with the gold pencil on the lower lash line. Apply Kajal on the waterline.

Gold liner
13.    Curl your lashes and apply 2-3 coats of mascara. Again, false eyelashes will add a lot of drama.

  • Here’s the finished Eye look…

Done Eyes

  • Finish the look by applying a hint of blush in the hollows of cheek and highlight the apples of your cheek. (Thanks for the tip Rati… Looks awesome!!!)
  • Apply a nude, metallic or golden lipstick to round off the plush look.

Here’s the final pic-

Thank you… 🙂

Hope you all like it!!!

  1. you know , M. I loved how you have taken piccy of the finished eye look. It’s naught, and sexy in its own way.

    Btw how much gold eye shadow do you use? 😛 There is already a dent in the apparently new eyeshadow palette.

    The look is outstanding. I recently got a similar purple shade. Let’s see how it turns out one me..And ummm I have a gold from the Lakme eye pot.

    :-* :-*

      1. oh,, i will find that out Poornima. I just hope they have not discontinued because they have come up with those disgusting eye magics. 🙁

        I will find out pakka.

          1. I know that’s rubbish. I would be going out in a day or two and I’ll find out. 🙂
            I wonder what were they thin king. Oil and water never mix and so is the case with gel and glitter. They’d rather come up with pigments, that would have been so better. :-/

    1. Thanks Rati…. I wanted to show off my eyes…. SO the angle..

      And I DO sue a loot of gold…. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: As you have already noticed!!!

      I am sure you will carry purple verry welll… Waiting for the pics…

  2. The look is very good..

    Are these eye shadow palettes available in MAC or do we have to pick and customise it…
    please let me know about the eye pallette shades and the cost…

  3. Hey Mrun……….your first pic is always a smiling pic and it is so pleasant to look at……curling the lashes does open up the eyes……I loved the way your eyes turned out Mrun :-* :-* :inlove: :inlove:

    have to try this 🙂

  6. hi Mrunmayee..
    a :yes: for ur eye makeup n the nice look.. bt a lil use of an eyebrow pencil or just a dab of ur lip balm or even a moisturiser can make ur eyebrows luk more glossy n dark (compared wid the dark eyes)..

    1. Thanks for the tip Nids…

      I do have very sparse eyebrows… So I look awkward with eyebrow pencils…

      But I have not filled in my eyebrows here… I’ll keep in mind ur suggestion next time..

      1. Mrun – Try dabbing some castor oil on your brows every night..have heard that it promotes luscious brows/eyelashes..My sis used to do it before her marriage and it did work…you’ll look more pretty with a defined eyebrow..I have sprse eyebrows too.. 🙁

            1. :rotfl: :rotfl:

              Mrun..incase you want u can get some castor oil from Radhika 😛 she has huge drums so wouldnt mind giving u some 😉

  7. Oh Thanks Anks… I have been applying liner since Ages!!!

    But I do it in one rapid stroke; as it works for me that ways…. You can look up Fathima’s liner application technique.. it worked for almost everybody here..

    Rati can give you the link..

  8. Nice tutorial Mrun and I guess I must check out Maxfactor Age Renew Foundation in Bronze 🙂 been searching for a good foundation n this one looks good! :yes:

        1. Is Rima on some comment vrat…like we have maun vrat?? Her comments on last few posts have been like this only..

  9. beautifully and neatly done. :beauty:

    which are the two rightmost colours in your palette? the pink and green.
