Askmewhats Version: The "ULTA" Look

Good day ladies and gentlemen!!!
I've done another look for the day! :D
I call this the ULTA look because I've used mostly ULTA eyeshadows. I can't believe I didn't use them much, they are super pretty and pigmented and color payoff is wonderful :) Ulta e/s are available at ULTA only and some colors I asked my friend who vacationed there to help me purchase and the other are gift from a blogger friend, Toma! :)

You can use your own choice of e/s brand for the looks here :)

Here's the final look
Yes, this was the look from the
Falsies Tutorial

Askmewhats Diagram

Prior to eyemakeup application
I primed my eye
with Benefit's Lemon Aid

(I am loving this Gracie)

Step 1:

Using a flat shader brush, pat on Ulta's Calla Lily on the inner thirds of the eye. Or use any frosted light pink e/s color :)

Step 2:

Using any crease brush or blending brush, in my case, I've used MAC 226 brush, apply the outer v corner with Ulta's Plum Noir or any dark Plum e/s color. Do not worry about harsh lines, we'll blend it all out later.


To deepen my crease (as I don't have it) lol, using the same MAC226 brush, or any smaller crease brush, apply Ulta's Galaxy on top of the Plum Noir, or any black e/s, you can choose for sparkly or matte one.

Step 3:

To create a bit of a "summer fire", it's summer time down here anyways. Pat on NYX's Cherry single e/s on the eye ball area.

Step 4:

Since everything is shiny shimmery & splended, use a Matte White e/s this time to highlight the browbone and inner corner of the eye. I am using Lancome's quad, or any matte white e/s you have on your collection. (ELF makes good matte e/s!)

Step 5:

Gel liner baby!!! :P I also apply this on the lower lashline. Very close to the waterline.

Step 6:

Apply Fashion 21's Pearl stick e/s on the waterline, go through Ulta's Plum Noir e/s on top of the white cream e/s.


Apply falsies if desired. If you have long, thick lashes, DO NOT talk to me! :P
(for applying falsies tutorial, smile and click here)

I'm done!!!!

The camera flash kinda washed out
the "Summer Fire Red"

Here's a shot for you to see
the effect of NYX Cherry

And what's on the rest of my face?

For the Face

MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation NC30
Mixed with CG TruBlend no. 1
(I am NC20! Confirmed!)

For the Cheeks

Meow Cosmetics Blush
"What's New Pussycat?"
(Thanks Joyce for this I love this,
suits purple e/s!)

For the Lips

Covered the dark pigmentation of my lips
with ELF Tone Correcting Concealer
Pat on CG Amazemint

And Crabby has to join me again in this shot
because we both have "wispy" lashes LOL

(Liee, from Something Unconthrived,
thanks for the lovely button earrings)

Hope you like my Ulta Look :)

Have you done any purples lately?
What's your color for the day?

Keep smilin'

Stay Happy!


  1. oHhh gorgeous!! i like this color!! its almost like a plum'ish... can you tell me or show me how you line ur eyes with that liner brush? i have that but i use the flat top one cuz i find it easier.. lol =D


  2. This is really pretty! I should play around with shimmery stuff more.

  3. the combination for colors came our really nice :)

  4. is pretty. the purple eye look is so subtle. well done <3

  5. You looks so pretty!
    Like the look!

  6. awh, you look awfully sweet! and that headband was a nice touch :D

    I don't often wear purples but I just picked up some purple eyeshadows which means I'll be using them soon!

  7. I love that little crabby!! It's sooo cute. And I love this look. Soft yet sooo beautiful.

  8. lovely!
    i love it!

    im gonna try this one sometime..
    maybe on saturday

  9. LipStick Staiin , sure I can try to show how I line my eye with that brush :)

    Chrissy, hahah I love shimmer e/s but I love mixing it with matte too :)

    Iambeautiful20, thanks! I'm glad you liked it

  10. ning * star, thanks for liking it and thanks for commenting!

    Anastacia, thanks dear!

    Connie, I seldom wear headbands but I own a lot of them! :) I guess my work entails to me to use headphones which is a nuisance with headband on :)

  11. B, I love li'l crabby!!!! We had a hard time getting it at a booth!!!!

    ~tHiAmErE~ can't wait to see your version :)

  12. This is a lovely color combi! I love your pic - the half one you posed with your eyes closed - the hairband and the falsies add up the great lovely look!

  13. Nikki, how are the Ulta e/s? are they good? =D

  14. Sesame, I'm glad you like the shots :) hahaha people are loving hairbands nowadays :)

    Kim, Ulta e/s that I got are all very pigmented and smooth, easy to blend. But I can't vouch for the other colors, I have a feeling it'll be the same as NYX or MAC e/s, some are super smooth and pigmented, some will be grainy and non pigmented, it really depends on the e/s color and finish :) Are you planning to purchase? Do wait for their BOGOF!

  15. this is definitely one of my favorite looks of yours fa sho!
