This is a look I did for one of my amazing celeb clients and it went so different and so well that I thought of making a post out of it. I have a big penchant for purple eyeshadows and they are the ones who rule a big share of my makeup kingdom. The uniqueness of a purple especially a bright purple is that it adds a touch of freshness to the color of the eyes. Brown eyes are most benefited as purple contrasts with the yellow flecks in the iris and makes them stand out.
Since 'gold' is actually a shiny yellow, its contrasting to the purple color and this harmony generally brings out the best from both the colors instead of neutralizing them. Other complimentary color harmonies of green-red and orange-blue do not come so well compared to the yellow-purple harmony, which is why I always like this combo.
Of late, I have been bitten by the shimmer bug and the effects are going to stay for a while. I simply love the way shimmers bounce light and give that soft focus feeling to the eyes which a harsh matte cannot do. And since the makeup I do totally is based on occasions and lighting, I prefer the shimmers to do their job better and add a dreamy touch to the look. (And that's why I get hired for makeup jobs too...LOL).
Although I used different products there, I am using my lovely Urban Decay Vice Palette to do this simple and beautifully radiant look. Lets see how to do it though.........
