"Smokey Galaxy" Dark Purple Makeup Tutorial

*due to the many comments in my video tutorial for this look, I caved and renamed this look. I mean, it kid of does look like a galaxy...  Totally unintentional. Gotta love it when that happens.

So can it just start to feel like Fall already? I'm just sayin...  
I absolutely L.O.V.E deep dark purple shades for Fall. Or Spring... or summer.  Okay, so deep purples work anytime.  And they're my absolute fav color to wear for eye shadow. Purple shades literally flatter every single possible eye color and are appropriate anytime, anywhere. So I thought I'd share a more dramatic purple look with you all using a new palette that I'm in love with. Best part? It's only $4. Hope you guys love it as much as I do!

  13. I love when you do the back-to-basics tutorials.... brief intro and then straight to the makeup with great descriptions of each step. Thanks for using drug store brands too.

    Dramatic look by the way, looove it.

  15. Wow beautiful look. I just found your blog and i see you very talented.

  16. I love this effect!!! It looks really awsome :D. I just bought some cosmetics from http://www.yves-rocher.com.pl/ and the minut I get them I'm gonna try to make it :D

  17. Very pretty! Do you have any tips or tricks for preventing eyeshadow fallout? I love experimenting with deeper shades, but a little of the shadow always seems to end up under my eyes, even after tapping the excess from the brush. Is there any way to avoid this? I have dark circles as it is! Thanks, Karen

  21. LOVE your makeup tutorials. MORE please!!!
    I love when you feature MAC e/s but I also have a lot of Nars eyeshadow duos and would love for you to feature them sometimes as well. They are very pigmented and I'd love to see how you use them.

  22. Love this look. Re-created it last night but I actually softened it gold shadow -- not too heavy though. Tiffany, I noticed your Sally Hansen nails!I tried those last week in a different print and had the HARDEST time applying them AND getting them to stick. Seriously. Only lasted for a day and two fell off and the tips chipped. What did you think??!
