Purple eye shadow, honestly, has bad memories for me, there used to be this girl I was in school with who went nuts with a lavender shade on a daily basis. I’ve just never been able to get into it since, but I’m hoping to get past that with this post. It’s been all over the shows, at Mathew Williamson it was a dramatic smokey eye, taken right up to the brow, very DVF in the 70s. At Guy Laroche it was paired back into a neat cat eye and Vera Wang went all out grunge for her show. As someone with green eyes, this shadow actually works really well for me. I’m not sure I’m brave enough to go all out yet, but maybe just a slick of purple eye liner to dip my feet in the water?
