PurpleEyeLook thumb Get The Look: Affordable Dramatic Purple Eye Look


Get this dramatic purple eye and berry lip with the following products.

L’Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Eggplant: a high pigment rich purple cream liner. Line above and below the eye and line the waterline.

L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte, Perpetual Purple, and Smoldering Plum. These high pigment, long wearing shadows are perfect for creating dramatic looks without breaking the budget.

Apply Iced Latte to the lid. Apply Perpetual Purple to the outer half of the lid and the crease and lightly blend over the Iced Latter on the inner half. Apply Iced Latte again over the inner half and blend for a purple/gold mix on the inner half. Apply Smoldering Plum to the outside corner and crease. Blend and extend Perpetual Purple under the eye as well if desired.

Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie: Apply twice to build the color of this moisturizing lipstick, or substitute your favorite plum/berry shade. This will give a bit more sheer look than the photo. Substitute the standard Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Raspberry for a deeper hue.

Top everything off with your favorite mascara or add false lashes for extra drama.

  1. Loreal totally irritates my skin. Any suggestions for an alternative eye liner and a shadow?

  2. Hi Nessa! If you don’t mind ordering online, you might try looking at some of the indie brands that focus on mineral pigments. Many of those leave out ingredients that tend to irritate skin that are found in most of the standard pressed powders. Fyrinnae is a good one as is Silk Naturals for pigments that hold up well for looks such as this one. The look can be done with a fairly bright purple, a deep plum and and a gold or copper/gold shade. You can wet the purple pigment to also use it as a liner.

  3. Love the look!

  4. Thanks Lola!
