Spring Purple Makeup

When spring rolls around, I always feel like wearing purple eye makeup. I have been trying to practice my work-safe coloured eye makeup skills lately. Often, when I bring out colourful eyshadow, I tend to go a bit overboard. Today's makeup is something I would wear both to work or on a day off.

Do you have any favourite purple eyeshadows?


  1. This is such a soft and pretty look :) very seasonal! And I definitely struggle with the colours too sometimes, it can be hard to use colours without going a bit crazy with it but this look hits the balance between work and play perfectly!

  2. Oh, yes! I think keeping the lip colors soft helps a lot, too, so that's usually what I do if I end up going a touch overboard with eye colors. Or mixing in a brown and a color! But it's easy to fall into the "all brown" neutrals for work vs. ALL THE COLORS for play, haha!

  3. I don't wear much colour during work days, at most some colourful eyeliner. But all of my colleagues wear no makeup at all and I don't want to overdo it!
