Purple Eye Shadow

Happy Friday everyone!

I had an incredibly busy week at work but it all feels worth it in the end when you accomplish things you wanted to and have the weekend to look forward to.

I wanted to make a short post on an eye look I did this week. Many of you have commented and said purple eyeshadows is really complimentary to dark brown eyes. So instead of my usual bronze, I tried a sweep of purple. It's such a romantic color I think, both in warmth and shade.

Easy eye look. Low maintenance - my kinda style! LOL
Do you like/love plummy purple eyeshadows?

Have a fantastic weekend everyone! Enjoy the Superbowl festivities!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like purple on you! I like a lot of variations in the purple family, though some purples I have problems pulling off (or maybe just have to watch out what I pair with them). I LOVE Sidecar, but the fallout in there puts me off most of the time! Only very occasionally do I use that shade because of the fallout!

I love purple on brown eyes, and since you've got such porcelain skin, this pinky-purple really works on you!    What mascara did you use here?

Jacqueline said...

Very pretty, I love purples too.

Purple eyeshadow looks great on you. 
Which mascara do you use? Because I'm jealous of your lashes.

I LOVE purples/plums!  It's such a great pop of color.  I think it's flattering on any color eye too.  But it definitely helps make brown eyes pop! <3

It's also complimentary to most asian skin.

Glad you're trying out some other colors! I too have just been so in love with neutrals its hard to step away! I think the purples from l'oreal are so lovely, there's two shades of purple in their infallible line, you should check them out!

Hi lovey, do you think you can tell me what curler and mascara you're using here?? Please please please! I'm an asian girl who can't find ANYTHING that holds the curl for my short stubby lashes and it's so frustrating :( thanks

Jennifer Huang said...

it looks great! awesome that you can pull it off, purple to me is like pink.. done incorrectly, it results in the bruised black eye look ==

Mary said...

The color matches you well! love purple looks as well and def awesome for Valentines.

Rainy Days & Lattes said...

Thanks Jen! I find a darker shade of purple is better. Too-pink purples are still not workable for me either :p

Rainy Days & Lattes said...

Yeah I know the feeling =P I love neutrals too!

Rainy Days & Lattes said...

Thanks Amy!

There's something flirty and innocent about purple shadows. And I like the way you apply it simply light. Fresh and romantic indeed! ^_^
