Duochrome Purple/Pink Makeup Look

Hello :)
I wore this look on Valentine's Day this year, I loved it so much I thought I'd share! So, if you want to see how I got this look keep reading! 
First I apply MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 to prime the eyes. 
As a transition shade in the crease I applied Peach Smoothie by Makeup Geek with a Sigma E40 blending brush. 
Again in the crease I apply Birkin & Dusty Rose from Anastasia Beverly Hills using the E40, focusing the color on the outer corner and blending in. For this look you don't want any harsh lines so blend away!! 
Now take Iridescent Purple (purple with blue iridescence) by Anastasia Beverly Hills and apply it on the outer corner of the lid area using any flat eyeshadow brush. I also layered with Opaline to darken the purple a bit.
On the center of the lid to the inner corner comes my favorite color in this look.. ELECTRO by Anastasia Beverly Hills!! This shadow is amazing! It's a duochrome bright purple with blue iridescence color so it reflects the different colors in different lighting. If you apply this with MAC Fix+ or eye drops the color will become even more intense.
(Indoor lighting, you can see how they reflect different colors)
On the lower lash line use the same ombré effect from Opaline, Iridescent Purple, to Electro into the inner corner. 
To highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye I used Bling from Makeup Geek.
