Question: How can I do a purple smokey eye?
Answer: The smokey eye: we’ve all heard about it, loved it, and tried it. Its the perfect accessory if you’re wearing a short sequined number to the club for a couple of drinks with your girlfriends, or if you’re going for dinner with your significant other. The traditional smokey eye is a classic look that’s usually created by layering a neutral eyeshadow base with black.
If you’re bored of your usual smokey eye, add a colorful twist to the traditional look by using purple eyeshadow. The shade looks unique and classy. Just be sure to pull off this look with caution so it doesn’t look as though someone punched you in the eye! This beauty trend has been seen on many celebrities and purple smokey eye regulars like Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, and Kim Kardashian. The purple smokey eye looks great on both dark and light skin, and it’s most flattering on hazel and green eyes.
Get the Look
Step1: Start by putting on a eyeshadow primer so that your eyeshadow stays in place. After that, apply a medium tone violet eyeshadow evenly across your eyelids.
Step 2: Next, take a darker shade of violet and apply to the crease of your eyes using an eyeshadow brush. Take a blending brush and blend it properly into the previous color. Use the same eyeshadow and blend it on the the lower part of your eye.
Step 3: Line your water line and your upper lids with kohl to give more definition to your eyes. Add two or three layers of mascara, as well as fake lashes if you want extra drama.
Additional steps: You can take a pearly eyeshadow and add it to the inner corners of your eyes to make them look bigger. Make sure you blend it well.
This is the easiest and the most elementary way to do a purple smokey eye. You can add your own variations and exaggerate any aspect of the look by changing the eyeliner, the shade of violet you use, or the amount of mascara you apply. Just don’t forget to have fun with it and add your own personal touch. For more beauty inspiration follow my pinterest.
