Welcome back, and let’s keep it going with Day 8 of my makeup challenge! At the end of this challenge, I will post a summary of all the looks for people who are interested. Today’s look was all about purple.
Purple is a beautiful, versatile color for every day wear. Muted or red toned purple eyeshadows are great for a day to day eye look and purple lipstick is slowly, but steadily becoming mainstream. Since I frequently wear a bit of purple eyeshadow to work, I thought for the purposes of this challenge I would be a little daring and try a purple that was slightly brighter and more fun. I still wanted to wear this out during the day though, so I towed the line by skipping the white base, which would have really made the eyeshadow pop. For a review of how white base can make your eyeshadow, more vibrant, read my previous post here.
Usually, when I wear purple eyeshadow, I tend to mix a little neutral shadow in with it, even if it’s only a beige highlight on my brow bone. For this look however, I went full purple. I used a lilac on my lid, a brighter purple in my crease and a shimmery whitish purple on my brow bone. The eyeshadow came from an Avon eyeshadow trio that is no longer available (sorry)! But don’t despair, there are plenty of bright purples out there if you look. Keeping with the fun theme of my look, I used a lip color slightly brighter than my usual. This was Nyx Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream, which I reviewed way back when.
So that’s it for the finish look. How do you rock a purple eye look? And are there any purple eyeshadows you think I should try? Let me know in the comments below and thank you so much for reading!
