Fall Makeup Trends 2013: Purple Smokey Eye


The purple smokey eye adds a colorful twist to this popular makeup trend!

Remember when I mentioned adding color to the traditional smokey eye to add life and excitement? Well, here it is! Purple was big on the runways of NYFW this year, particularly for Jason Wu, and so I decided to incorporate jewel toned purple shadows to add color that works well for nighttime.  This will complement a number of different skin tones and eye colors, and can definitely be tweaked to suit you! As always, I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
