It’s Easter/Passover weekend, and one color that reminds me of Easter is purple: purple marshmallow Peeps, purple Easter eggs, and purple packaging on Easter candy. You get the idea. So I got out this Bobbi Brown palette and purple Lancome kohl eyeliner.
The palette is from the Lilac Rose collection that Bobbi Brown came out with a few years ago. It has enough shades of eye shadow to be flattering for everyone, and the colors are very soft. The collection was limited edition, but Tarte’s new Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette looks close enough to me. You can also try the Monochrome or Exposure palette from Hourglass.
If you aren’t sure about the look, or just don’t want to spend too much, check out Revlon’s ColorStay 16-Hour Eye Shadow in Seductive or PhotoReady Primer, Shadow, and Sparkle in Watercolors.
The eyeliner is Lancome’s Le Crayon Kohl in Purple Dusk. I do not think this is the most flattering color on me, to be honest. Don’t get me wrong. I love Lancome kohl pencils, and have a few. They go on very smoothly and wear well. But I am fair and have blue-gray eyes, so I tend to wear blue, brown, and gray eyeliners. I think Purple Dusk is better for brown- or green-eyed girls, and olive skin tones.
If you want to try purple, Physicians Formula has Kajal eyeliner trios for green and brown eyes, and there is a purple shade in each.
Hoppy Holiday Weekend, everyone! It’s officially a three-day weekend here Chez Fabulous Forever. Do you have any special plans?
And BTW, thanks for the love for my Artis Makeup Brushes post. Glad you liked it!
