How to apply purple eyeshadow: Basic ideas

By now, you might already know, I have a purple fetish. So for work yesterday and today, to attend a luncheon organised by L’Oreal Paris, I wore PURPLE EYESHADOW! What’s more purple is the brand colour for 8flo Lifestyle, so even Stella from L’Oreal Paris said that it’s good “branding”!

Anyway, for those of you out there who might also like the gorgeous shade, here’s something really fast to do. I was rushing to places on both days, and managed to complete both looks within 10 minutes.

Step 1: Choose the darkest shade from your favourite eyeshadow palette/your favourite purple shade. I chose By Terry’s Milky Marshmallow. Apply generously all over the lid.

Step 2: Choose the medium shade in your palette/a shade that’s slightly lighter. Using a brush (preferably), apply just at where the previous colour end to blend out the sharp edges.

Step 3: Choose the highlighting shade in your palette. For me, I went for a pearlescent white hue. Use it to highlight brow bones.

Step 4: Finally, choose one of the shades to line the lower lid. I went with the medium shade.

Step 5: Finish with eyeliner and mascara.

Final look is completed with blusher and Clinique Longwear Gloss in Bonfire.

Just to illustrate that the steps are “reusable” for other looks, I went with a plum colour (still in the family of purple), instead of violet. And instead of a pearlescent white shade for highlighting, I chose lavender.

  1. Some pictures are not very clear. You need to take better pictures. Just my two cents’ worth… I hope you won’t mind it! (:
