From the sophisticated to the showgirl, there's a stylish purple eye makeup to exploit, so try to take the following tips into consideration to ensure you achieve that illusion that says movie star from first glimpse.

If you're looking for a look that feels mysterious yet sexy, opt for a cool violet eye shadow or a purple makeup and pair it with a cool and intense black that you'll softly blend into the crease and the outer corner of the eye. The idea is to smoke up the area and create a sultry, seductive makeup look that no one can resist to. To add even more mystery to the look apply a black eyeliner pencil to the waterline and gently smudge the pencil into the lashes to intensify the eyes instantly. Finish the look with a black mascara and move on to defining your features using a blush and a neutral lipstick or lip gloss as this way your look will appear perfectly balanced. If you're looking for more drama, pair your purple and black eye makeup with a vivid lip color, but keep in mind that this is a color combo that only works for evenings.


The honeys that are a bit more daring and love to play with vivacious pigments can opt for a cool purple and pink, purple and gold/copper, purple and orange, violet, lavender or any other shade mix, in shimmery or matte, that you feel could bring out your playful side. Create an alluring eye makeup by blending the shades well (a darker shades is mandatory for the crease) as this is the secret to a cool multi-chromatic eye makeup. These are lighter shades that can be paired with a white eyeliner smudged across the waterline to create the appearance of bigger, opened eyes. Depending on personal preference you can smudge a kohl eyeliner across the lash line to achieve a more sophisticated gaze, but either way your peepers will not go by unobserved provided that the colors are blended well. Finish your eye makeup with a bit of mascara and continue to define your facial features using neutral shades as this will help soften the overall look.
