Are you guys in for a treat today! I am absolutely delighted to have Sarah from Workaday Ramblings share with all of you some fun and totally wearable purple eye makeup looks that will leave you feeling regal and empowered as the colour purple should! Take it away Sarah!
Hello, I'm Sarah from Workaday Ramblings. I'm taking over Jayne's blog today to talk about purple.
I love purple everything. Purple eyeshadow, purple eyeliner, purple nail polish, purple clothes. I'd wear purple every day if I didn't think I'd get sick of it. So today I'm going to share a smudgey purple eyeliner look that I've done with two different sets of products.
In this look, I used only eyeshadows on my eyes. I started by applying The Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow in Oh Honey all over my eye lids.
I then added a thick line of L'Oreal Infallible in Burning Black. I used a brush to smudge it up into the lighter shade. The name of this shadow is a bit misleading as it's a gorgeous dark maroon-purple.
I finished with some mascara, and my eyes were done.
I did a very similar look using creamy twist-up shadows as well.
I did this look in the first order, by starting with a thick line of Lise Watier 24HR Glam Eyeshadow in Disco Glam. This is a sparkly purple shadow that applies easily and sets to a waterproof finish very quickly.
I then applied Annabelle TwistUp Retractable Eyeshadow Crayon in Taupe. I used it to fill in the rest of my lid, and applied it over the edge of the purple in order to create a natural blend.
Again, I added mascara to finish the look.
Both applications created a similar smudgey purple liner look. The wear time for both was similar, although the cream shadows had a lot more glitter, while the power shadows looked a little softer.
Thanks, Jayne, for letting me share my purple looks today! Which type of products and application do you prefer?
