I'm a self-confessed PURPLE nut :-) As a teenager, my bedroom was a purple-fest - I grabbed every little nick nack I could lay my hands on in that shade, and even painted my furniture with Estapol Antique. I remember the base coat was deep pink, and then I used a cloth to smudge a bright cyan toner over the top to create a deliriously vivid purple aged look. Of course in those days I wore purple clothes and purple eye-shadow as well, and was ecstatic when Yardley brought out a purple Pot'O'Gloss (now I'm really giving away my age...)
I love just about all purples, and especially the names of all the different shades in this particular colour family - lilac, amethyst, lavender, violet, aubergine, mauve, plum, burgundy, mulberry, orchid, grape and on it goes. The pinky purples make my eyes look greener and seem to suit my skin tone better than the bluey ones, but I don't let that stop me indulging in my all-consuming purple passion.
I'll be doing quite a few purple EOTD's over the next few months, so here's the first of many :-)
For this look I used a base of Face of Australia Budge-Proof Gel Eyeliner in Pure Purple. Love this gel because it takes a while to dry and gives me time to apply my shadow so it really sticks.
Towards the back of the eye & into the crease I pressed on Revlon matte Aubergine. Along the top lashline I added violet from the Physicians Formula Fashionista palette using a damp brush to bring out the shimmer.
After lining the lower lashline with MNY Master Precise Liquid Liner, I smudged it with the Revlon Aubergine, and a deep purple from the L.A.Colors Venus palette. And finished off the look by lining my waterline with the same FOA gel liner, and a few coats of MNY The Falsies mascara.
Take care of you,
