I was recently having an in-depth discussion about favorite colors with a preschooler (who, surprisingly, had a lot to say about colors), and knew I had to feature my fave for LOTW this week. Purple is my favorite color, hands down. There are other colors that I have a fondness for, but purple will be my forever love.
As per usual, I primed my lids first and then applied a foiled purple shadow all over my mobile lid.
I wanted to adjust the shade of purple just a bit, so I covered the top of the original shade with a mid-tone purple that leans a little bit bluer.
With a fluffy blending brush, I took a cool purple-toned taupe shadow and blended out the area from the crease to just below the brow bone.
After highlighting my brow bone with a matte, light-peach shadow, I lined my upper lash line with an angled liner brush and matte black eye shadow, extending it into a very slight cat eye.
With a stiff blending brush, I blended that slight flick into the outer-V of my lids and smudge a little of that matte black shadow just slightly into the crease.
I finished the eyes off by highlighting the inner corner with a shimmery ivory shadow, and a couple of coats of mascara.
I already had my foundation applied, so the next step was to apply a soft, cool-toned pink blush to my cheeks for a little flush.
For the lips I went bold, applying a matte purple lipstick.
Here are my favorite looks from last week!
