Last week we blogged about bright blue eyeshadow making a big splash during the spring runway shows; another was bright purple, from lavender to violet, from amethyst to plum. Here are three celebrities successfully wearing the trend: Eva Longoria, Christina Milian, and Heidi Klum. The trick with such a saturated color, which is beautiful on skins from the fairest to the deepest, is to keep the rest of the face neutral and natural – not matching lipstick or gloss, no bright blush.
ColorOn offers you a nice range of purple-hued instant eye shadow looks, from the sweetest daytime pastels to the deepest night skies. For a sunny summer day, try Cactus Flower from the Painted Desert Variety Kit, or Laguna from the Bestsellers Kit. For a sexier look, try Fairy Pink from the Dreams Variety Kit, a sexy smokey eye in the sunset shades of dusky pink, smokey amethyst and deep merlot.
If you want to take your hothouse violets out on the town, try a shimmery tri-color look are sure to grab the spotlight. Amethysts and Gold from the Jewels Variety Kit is a prism of exotic purple and gold, with a hint of translucent pink that wears like jewelry for the eyes. In the same variety kit you’ll find a more day-wear oriented look, Amethysts and White Gold.
The other nighttime look is Lost in Space from the Eye Envy Odyssey Kit, four colors, one seriously intricate look. Shimmer pink, cobalt blue, dusky sapphire and hot violet combine into a bold look not for the faint of heart.
All of the colors mentioned can be combined and purchased as a Custom Kit, or you can instead buy the Variety Kit in which they’re featured. Either way, same price. There are 78 instant eye shadow looks and 24 pre-selected Variety Kits. And stock up on the 11 Smooth Shimmers or 7 Metallic Glitters loose mineral shadows while you’re at it; some are limited editions and won’t be around forever!
We’ll be back Friday with a new Winners Circle announcement! Have a lovely day…
