It’s no secret that purple is one of my all-time favorite colors. I have a fair share of purple eyeshadows in my collection and I love to share talking about it in this post. Can anyone tell me if you have more purple products than most people have neutrals? I want to know. Are purples kind of like Pokémon for you, gotta collect ‘em all!
I love wearing purple eyeshadow on occasion! And when I do, I try to go all the way out with it. Purple is associated with royalty, wealth and power for centuries since Queen Elizabeth 1 reign.
Whether it’s a bright purple on the lid or a deeper purple in the crease, I love how purple looks as eyeshadow. Duochrome shades are definitely the best, since they’re multi-dimensional. Lighter iridescent purples are great to pop at the inner corner to highlight and open up the eyes. Purple mattes are perfect in the crease for contouring the eyes. I love wearing purple eyeshadow, it is super flattering on my brown eyes!
Purple is perfect for eyeliner too! My favorite purple eyeliner is the Gem Eye Pencil in Ultra Orchid by Starlooks, 24/7 Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil from the purple colors of Vice to Empire and NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Bourbon Street. These also make great colored bases for eyeshadows too, to help intensify an eyeshadow color. They’re great for layering.
Purple blushes can be very intimidating. The Balm has the right plum shade that’s the most flattering, plumish purple blush that I’ve ever tried is the Instain Staining Blush in Pinstripe. For a softer pinky purple blush, try Makeup Geek Secret Admirer. Or go bold with a deep violet blush like Fyrinnae Royalty.
There are so many amazing purple nail polishes out there that it’s hard to pick a favorite. My daughter bought me this Ciate Haute House Collection from Sephora Malaysia. I’ll be doing a full review for the fall nail polish hopefully next week.
