A few girlfriends and I were chatting about our favorite colors to use on our eyes. There were the usual suspects – pinks, browns, golds/coppers, peaches…you know, the safe ones. And of course, I agree! I love using them as well! Then we started talking about the ones we’ve never used or would never used. I’ve tried quite a few but on my list, I had purple and blue. At this point, Maskcara’s blue shadows had just recently been released and were on their way to me so they were put on the back burner until arrival so purple was high on my radar! (Update: blue shadows have arrived and I have yet to try them but I will soon!)
So purple became my project. I went back and forth between creating a more wearable look and one that was more bold…I think you can see which won 😉 BUT girl, anything can be an everyday look if you just rock it! I wore this to bunco (yes, I’m 90) and the gals loved it!
Best part is that it took only two eyeshadow colors and one brush (haleloo for double ended brushes!)! I started by spraying the pencil tip of my brush with setting spray and then dipping it in to the purple shade to make it more vibrant and precise, then slowly and patiently drew the liner shape. Be mindful if you have deep-set or hooded eyes like me, draw your graphic liner on your brow bone (above your crease!) so you can still see it when you open your eyes! Then I flipped the brush over to the flat end, used one side to fill in the purple outer corner of lid and then the other side to add in the glitter. That’s it!
What color do you think you can’t use on your eyes? I want to prove you wrong 🙂
