Kim Kardashian Inspired Purple Smokey Eye

I don't know if you guys are all members on Makeupbee or not but I pop on there every once in a while.  I've noticed they've been doing a ton of competitions lately and their newest one is "Celebrity Inspired."  So I figured I'd enter, I don't have anything to lose.  The hard part was trying to pick just one celebrity to be inspired by.  Do I pick someone I at least slightly resemble?  Or do I pick based on the actual makeup?  Well clearly I went with based on the makeup haha.

So I've seen this picture of Kim Kardashian around a lot and I really like the way her makeup looks so I decided I would try to recreate her look.  Silly me chose to do this on a day when my daughter's class was having family picnic day at school so I got all self conscious because I knew it would be way more makeup than any of the other moms had on (I already kind of stand out as the youngest mom)!  I mean, I really like the look and if I were going anywhere but school I'd have no issues wearing it.  But I wore it anyways haha!

I know it's not a perfect recreation (mine's a bit warmer, my cheeks don't have as much color, my lips aren't as light...) but here's the look!
 I contoured and highlighed my cheeks like crazy!!  You can't tell though haha!

What I used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX "Milk" Jumbo Eye Pencil
I laid down a layer of MUG "Unexpected" shadow first so I wouldn't get too much pigment from 
Inglot 388 M (blue purple)
Inglot 379 M (periwinkle color)
Inglot 392 M (a pinky purple)
MUG "Taupe Notch" to blend purple into the highlight color
MUG "Bling" to highlight
MUG "Corrupt" to add a bit of depth
Inglot 352 M (skin color) to blend edges of purple and make them soft
L'oreal HIP Chrome Eyeliner in "Black Shock"
Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara "Blackest Black"
Some random false lashes I had around (I know they're Ardell)

I used like 5 things to highlight my cheekbones but nothing came off as shimmery as hers!

MAC "Myth" lipstick
MAC "Boy Bait" Cremesheen glass

So that's my look!  I hope you guys like it!  If you feel up to it, here's a link to vote on Makeupbee.  You have to click the little heart button that says "LUV" for it to count (if you do vote for me, thank you!).  I hope you all are having a beautiful day!  Thank you so much for your support!
