The look i've chosen is inspired by a character from my favourite computer game series - Mass Effect. The character is Aria T'Loak , the unofficial queen of Omega, a former mining facility and now the place for those wishing to hide from the law. She is sexy but dangerous and i wanted to give my look a dark look. Even though Aria is blue skinned, like most Asari, she has a purple toned blue skin and it often looks more purple due to the lighting in her environment.

I used Barry M's Purple eyeshadow pencil as a base over the lid and along underneath (aswell as applying ELF Mineral eyeshadow primer above the lid to the brow.) I then used purples from Sleek Ultra Matt Darks shadow palettes -Highness and Villian -( suitable names for Aria! )also Ink and Pillow Talk.
Villian was applied all over the lid and under the outer corner lower lid. Ink was used in the corner of the upper lid and blended through. To create the lighter purple on the inner corner, i mixed Highness and Pillow Talk together.
Liner was a sparkly purple liquid liner, finished with black mascara.I also used Ink and Thunder blended together to shape the brows.
I also used Barry M's Bold eyeliner in silver along the waterline and flicked out at the corner alongside the purple eyeliner.
I used Morgana Cryptoria Otherworldly lipstick as it suited Aria's look too!
I love the effect the eyeshadow pencils have on matt eyeshadows, They give the colours such depth. Of course the quality of Sleek's Ultra Matts also help in giving a lovely depth and colour.
Really liked using Mass Effect's wonderful characters as inspiration so look now im going to do looks inspired by -
Dr Liara T'soni - Shadow Boker.
