Purple eye makeup looks are trending in 2021 and here’s the simplest way to wear this lovely colour. We simply adore how quick and simple this eye makeup look is. Since this eye makeup does not feature an eyeliner, curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara to define your peepers.

Coloured eyeliners are such a fun way to amp up your eye makeup, especially if you don’t want to apply and blend eyeshadows. Take any coloured eyeliner pencil (you could match it with your outfit for a more cohesive effect) and create a neat line across your eyelid and draw a tiny wing for some added drama.

If you plan to wear an LBD and want to go the traditional smokey eye route, we highly recommend you to try this one. Ditching the black eyeshadow for a brown one softens the look and makes it a lot easier to work with. Additionally, this eye makeup can just as easily be paired with a statement red lip. Awesome, isn’t it?

Irrespective of the occasion, a glittery eye makeup look always seems to work. A shimmery nude or golden eyeshadow helps to add a bit of sparkle to your eyes and make you look totally gorgeous. Remember to blend the colour properly to avoid harsh edges.
