Keep reading to learn how to take your eye makeup up a notch with striking purple eye shadow.
Ready to take 2018 by storm in the trendiest color of the year? Try one of the below purple eye shadows to make a major makeup statement this year.
L’Oréal Paris Infalliible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Perpetual Purple: This deep, intense shade complements dark skin tones beautifully. The cream formula glides on smoothly for all-day wear. Use it alone on your lids for a striking makeup look that’ll have all other eyes on you.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Violet Luster: You’ll get a two-for-one makeup trend with this violet eye shadow in a metallic finish. Metallic makeup was all the rage in 2017, and it’s going just as strong here in 2018. This glitzy eye shadow a great pick to perk up your face during the drab winter months.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Shady Violet: Two purple eye shadows is better than one—and that’s exactly what you get with this dual-ended product. Use the two creamy violet eye shadows together or separately—it’s up to you!
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Violet Amour: An eye shadow palette is a great product to have in your makeup bag, as you can use it to create a variety of makeup looks, including a smoky eye. This one features four violet hues ranging from light to dark.
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Stacked Heels: This eye shadow palette comes with four gel-to-powder purple eye shadows that allow you to mix and match seamlessly. Use the lightest shade right under your brow bone to highlight the area.
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Dual Effects in Unforgettable Lilac: Prefer your purple eye shadows on the lighter side? This lilac eye shadow palette fits the bill. These eye shadows easily blend together, so you can go as subtle or as bold as you’d like. Lilac is a great shade for fair skin tones, as it won’t overwhelm your complexion as much as a deeper purple would.
If you’ve decided to sport purple eye shadow, keep the rest of your makeup look on the simple side. A safe bet: glowing skin, rimmed lids, and nude lipstick.
For your face: Create the appearance of even, radiant-looking skin with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer. Smooth foundation on all over your face with a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, and dot concealer on to any areas you’d like to camouflage or brighten, blending in with your fingers.
For your eyes: Line your eyes with a black eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner, which can even be used in your waterline for a tightlining effect. Follow up with a dramatic mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara, which has a black primer on one end and a fiber-infused mascara on the other.
For your lips: Since you’re rocking something very colorful on your eyes, opt for a subdued lip color, like a matte nude. Scrub your lips to remove dead skin cells from the surface, then apply a lip primer to help create an even canvas. Glide the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-sterpiece over your lips and you’re ready to go.
