Guest Blogger: Viola from Killer Colours

This is my way of telling you how much I love Viola's blog Killer Colours. =) She made this tutorial just for you, my dear Readers. Enjoy!


Hi there! My name is Viola, I'm from Sweden and I've been a beauty blogger for about two years now. My blog is called Killer Colours and it's mainly focused on motivating people to break rules and do make up any way that they want. I post lots of exciting products and fun make up looks without telling anyone how you "should" think and do. The only "should" in beauty is that it should be fun!

A while ago Nihrida sent me an e-mail asking me if I wanted to write a guest blogger post, surprised by the great offer I said hell YES! I've been following this blog for a long time now and it really is an honor to get this opportunity. So, what I'm going to show you is a make up tutorial that I created just a short while ago. Some bright purple liner, shimmery greys and sparkly holographic glitter. Let's go!


1. Now, here's our bare canvas, the eye without any make up.

2. Apply a sticky, silvery base all over the lid + crease and on the lower lashline to make our shadows stick to the skin. I used High Tech Lighter - Jupiter from Make Up Store.

3. Also apply a white base on the inner corner of the eye and some underneath the brow, here I used Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - Milk from NYX Cosmetics. Make sure to blend the bases out, we don't want harsh lines.

4. Now it's time to start with the eyeshadows! From the crease and up I applied a metallic-y grey shadow from MAD Minerals called Shivers. Don't apply any eyeshadow on the lid, we'll come back to that later.

5. Highlight your browbone. I packed a champagne coloured eyeshadow on underneath the brow and blended it down into the grey to help it blend out. For this I used my favourite highlighter shadow called Shroom from MAC Cosmetics.

6. A semi matte white eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye makes the eyes look brighter! Makeupcosmetics Eye Dust - Snow.

7. Of course some bright colours should be included! I lined my waterline and outer part of the lower lashline with the purple Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil called Lust. Smudge it out to make it look less harsh.

8. On top of that I added a beauuuuutiful eyeshadow to give it some depth and sparkle. This is Whisper Opal from MAD Minerals. The Whisper shadows from MAD are translucent with an awesome chrome effect. I love layering these!

9. Now it's time to pack some crazy holo glitter on the lids! Dip a flat brush in mixing medium (I use glycerine) and then into the glitter. Pack it on carefully, or else you'll get fall outs all over your face and clothes. My glitter comes from Make Up Store and it's called Hologram!

10. To balance the look up a bit, apply some liner on the top lid. I chose a sparkly dark purple to match the lower lashline! MAD Minerals Indelible 3 in 1 Liquid Eyeliner - Prism.

11. Finish off with some nice brows (MAC eyeshadow - Mystery) and pitch black lashes (Covergirl Lashblast Volume). Now it's time to go out the door and party all night! Peace out!


Thank you, Viola! :*


  1. I love Viola! I follow her blog for months and inspire me every time. Each tutorial is its discovery, and every time I learn something new. Definitely it would be called queen of color! Because no one combines as she!

  2. I love this look! Everything from the glitter to the purple to the black liner is perfect!

  3. Gorgeous! I have been following her blog for quite some time. Love her and her tattoos lol!

  4. I love this tutorial. It is funny how I end my MU at level 4 on your tutorial, and of course I apply mascara at the end:D But I never go further and try eyeliner, gliters, different eye pencils...
    I will try this someday.

  5. This is such a beautiful look! I love it!

  6. Whoah!! That is just stunning.Love it <3

  7. Gorgeous look!! It makes me think of snow and winter but in a good way.
