After picking out an outfit that was all black and white, I decided to wear bright makeup to add some color to my overall look. I turned to the Make Up For Ever purple and pink matte eye shadows to create this vibrant eye makeup. I wore this with a lipstick color that looks like these two eye shadows mixed together — it’s a deep, fuchsia berry called “Rebel” by MAC.
This is my first makeup look using the MAC Limited Edition Paint Pot in “Half-Wild” that I just reviewed. I used Half-Wild as a base on my lid to make the Inglot purple eye shadow I applied on top much bolder. I decided to add a light gray color to the purple eye makeup to match a gray and purple dress I was wearing that day, but I also like how the purple stands out even more against the matte gray.
Reader Maria sent me a request for an eye makeup look that she can wear with her formal eggplant purple dress for an Air Force ball. Since she mentioned that she prefers eye shadow that isn’t too smokey, I came up with this look that uses neutral colors with a little pop of purple to tie in the color of her dress. I wanted to keep the overall look light but still dramatic for a nighttime look. I also added gold to this look, since gold really stands out with purple. Here’s how to do this Eye of the Day!
This is a makeup look I came up with when I was in Hawaii last month. I’ve worn it a couple times since then, because it’s a fun colorful look with a dash of glitter! The glitter was a last minute decision that I added after I had already put my eye shadow, liner, and mascara. I like how it gives just enough sparkle to your eye makeup without taking away from all the pretty colors.
I decided to whip out my Urban Decay Book of Shadows palette to create this smokey makeup look. The two main colors I used are Last Call (iridescent plumy-purple) and Perversion (matte black). Although I used these colors from my Book of Shadows palette, both of these are available for purchase as single eye shadows. If you have Urban Decay’s new 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection, try a brighter fuchsia version of this look with Junkshow instead of Last Call!
