Eva Longoria, Christina Milian, and Heidi Klum all picked purple

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.

Cactus Flower

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 Kita sexy smokey eye in the sunset shades of dusky pink, smokey amethyst and deep merlot.

Plum Passion

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.
