Today I wanted to show you how I do this fun purple eye. It looks a bit scary, but the way the colors are blended makes this very wearable and flattering! I’ll show you some tips to make sure you don’t get the “Bruised” effect that some purple eyeshadows can give you. These colors are all from the Disney Sephora Jasmine Palette which I mentioned in my Colors Of The Rainbow Tag! Let’s jump right in.

Okay, so the first step, as always, is primer. For this step I wanted something that would create a blank canvas, so I used the MAC Painterly Paint Pot.
Next, I want to apply a white base to my brow bone, inner corner, and inner three-fourths of my lid to help the purples really pop. For this I’m using the NYX eyeshadow base in white, found at ULTA.
Now blend that out with your finger.
For a browbone highlight, I’m using the color in the palette called “Ali Ababwa”.
For an inner corner highlight, I want to use a bright shimmery shade with a yellow undertone. The yellow will counteract the purple and save your eyes from looking bruised, which can happen with purples if you’re not careful. I’m going to use the color “Sand in the Glass”. I’m using an angled brush for this.
Now it’s time to start with the color. On a flat shader brush, I’m going to take the bright purple in the palette called “Mystical Wonder”. You want to pat, not rub, this color on the eyelid where we applied the white base.
To blend this with the inner corner color, take the brush we used to apply the highlight and pat it lightly over the inner part of the purple.
Now for the crease color. I’m taking the color called “Master” on a MAC 217 brush and putting this in my outer V (The outer corner in a sideways V shape) and through my crease.
As you can see, I’m starting about 1/4 of the cay in at my lash line and dragging the color upward as I move outward.
Now I just put the color through my crease.
For the lower lash line, I’m starting with the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Asphyxia, a pinkish purple color. Only apply this halfway in.
Now with a small brush, I’m taking the darker purple we used and putting that on the outer 1/4 of my eye.
Next apply the lighter purple over the remaining part of the eyeliner.
For the upper lash line, I’m creating a wing with an eyeliner brush and Elf’s cream eyeliner in Black.
To help brighten the eyes a bit more, Take a nude eyeliner, I’m using the Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Nude, and apply this to the inner waterline. (The space between your lashes and eyeball. If you have overly sensitive eyes, skip this step. I have mildly sensitive eyes and it doesn’t bother me at all.)
Add your favorite Mascara! I used the Covergirl Clump Crusher.
Now for the face. For bronzer, I’m using the one that came in the palette. It is a warm golden, shimmery bronze shade. Apply this in the 3 E motion.
I’m also using the rosy pink blush that came in the palette.
Add your favorite nude or peachy lip product and we’re all done! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you for reading! As always, Comment and tell me if you’ve tried out any looks and how they’ve worked for you. Feel free to comment any requests!
