Wearable Purples| Autumn Eyes

I find people are always wanting to incorporate colour into their makeup. Purple is one of those colours that can be quite daunting to wear out. It can sometimes make your eyes look sore or like you haven't had much sleep. It's just about finding the right shade of purple for you. Some people would look great with a pop of colour under the lash-line, whereas others would suit a more subtle smokey eye. 

Here I created a lovely golden copper and aubergine purple smokey eye on my friend Amy. What I like to take into account when doing someone's makeup is their features. What colour their skin is - and whether they have a warm undertone (like Amy has) or a cooler undertone to the skin - think Nicole Kidman. Their hair and eye colour is also important when choosing colours you want to work with. 

The golden eye shadow works well with Amy's eye colour, as well as going well with the deeper purple shade used to smoke the look out on the outer corners. The contrast of the colours resembles the autumnal shades very well - which is what we were aiming for with this look. 

Products Used: 

Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Foundation: MAC Face & Body - C2 
Concealer: Maybelline Anti Age Eye Eraser - Light 
Powder: MAC MSF Natural - Light 
Bronzer: NARS - Laguna 
Blush - MAC Peaches (a small amount)
Base: MAC Paint Pot - Painterly
Shadow: Urban Decay - Trick (Naked 3), MAC Blackberry and Carbon 
Mascara: Maybelline Falsies
Brows: HD Brows Pro Kit 
Lipstick - MAC - Rebel

I was really happy with the way the look turned out and I think it's a lovely way to include some colour into a look that you can quite easily wear out and about. If a bold lip isn't your thing a nude shade would suit this look just as well.
