I used to hate purple in general as a color, but in the past year I’ve really opened up to it in makeup. I still can’t bring myself to wear anything purple, but this is a simple way I can incorporate the color into my personal color palette.
First I applied the shimmery purple shade in the NARS Eyeshadow Duo to the lid from lashline to crease. Apply this shadow generously, don’t be afraid to go really purple. Blend the pigment slightly above the crease.
Next I applied Blacktrack in a 60’s cat eye style. The black winged liner will help to balance the purple shadow so it looks like you’re making a retro choice (instead of looking like you just escaped from a psych ward and your first stop was Sephora).
If the purple shadow still feels too intense after you’ve applied your liner try blending a grey shadow into the crease. Grey tones mute bright colors.
I applied a little bit of liner into my lower lashline on the outer edges.
Last, I finished the look with Mascara and NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick
