Welcome to the minimalist guide on how to wear purple eye makeup!
Black, brown and basic eye makeup colours are so yesterday. In 2020, we are going brighter, bolder and more c-o-lo-u-r-f-u-l. You may now ditch your neutral eye makeup and start painting your eyes a gorgeous purple hue. No kidding! Purple eye makeup has been having a moment in the beauty world right now and we’re legit obsessed.
But TBH, the high-on-glam colour could be a tad bit tricky to work with, especially for the makeup minimalists looking to hop onto the bandwagon. However, that doesn’t mean you have to stick with boring black and browns. We have here some really cool and minimal eye makeup looks using the stunning purple colour that you can take inspiration from. Take a look…
1. Bold eyeliner
Not too OTT; just enough to fetch you some attention (and compliments). This purple liner look is the easiest way to get on board with this trendy eye makeup. Simply replace your classic black liner with the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate The Gelato Collection - 02 Blackcurrant to get the dark and bold stroke of purple on your upper lid.
2. Wash of lilac
Here’s an eye makeup look that proves you can wear a shimmery purple on your eye and team it with black kohl and still make it look minimal and gorgeous. How? The key is to work with a light shade of purple. Swipe a muted purple with specks of shimmer and line your eyes with black liner.
3. Purple wing
Pair the trendy purple with a basic eye makeup colour like black or blue to get a stunning makeup look. Take this look for instance. A classic deep blue on the inner corners of the eyes culminating in a purple wing is the best way to incorporate the OTT purple in the most subtle way. Use Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette - Royal Persia to get the look.
4. Gloss on
Gloss and purple together is the perfect blend of chic and quirky. Plus, this one’s really easy to work. All you need is your purple lip gloss like the Lakme Lip Gloss - Bubble Gum and pack it on your lids. And, that’s it, you’re done!
5. Subtle sunset
Remember the sunset eyes makeup? Well, here is a subtle sunset eye makeup look using yellow and a buff of light purple that could convince you to finally give it a try. Simply use the sundown-y shades from the Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Pink Paradise to get this look.
