Are you stuck in an eye-shadow rut? Do you always find yourself opting for that blue shade? Well, it’s time to switch things up! Thehottest hue on the market right now is purple. Lilacs, plums and deep purples are reigning supreme across make-up counters. On international runways Peter Som, Naeem Khan and Etro all showcased purple lids.
Purple is a colour that will really make your eyes pop and goes well with our brownish tinged irises. Stars like Thandie Newton, Rihanna and Rachel McAdams have all gone for bold bright purple shades on the red carpet, while Mila Kunis opted for a subtle plum shade on her lids that enhanced her green eyes.
Being the make-up junkie that I am, I recommend Estée Lauder Amethyst Spark for a deep bold shot of purple. If you’re not as daring, try just lining your eyes with purple liner. It’s the easiest way to transcend into this look. I recommend Lakmé Glide On Eye colour in Plush Purple or Lancôme ’s Le Crayon Kohl in Ultra-Lavande for those peepers. Top with mascara for a flirty night around town.
