There’s so many variations of purple, from lilac to mauve to violet, and a touch of purple eyeshadow can take you from sweet to sultry in seconds. The “no makeup” look was fun for the first few weeks of quarantine, but it just seems like the time to add a bit of color to your lids and glow all out with this mesmerizing hue. From a metallic purple cut crease to a simple wash of purple eyeshadow, the options are endless, but these are four of our favorites that you need to try.
Go monochromatic with plum, a soft shade of purple eyeshadow that creates a soft and romantic look. It’s ideal for date night or a casual night in with Netflix, and looks beautiful on all skin tones – making it your go-to purple eyeshadow when you want to look pretty without putting in too much effort. Seriously, a plum eye takes only a few minutes to do, but will trick people into thinking you spent all night on your makeup.
Mauve smokey eye
