Look: Purples with Range

The colors that I can show the most depth and range with are greens and teals. There are so many good light vs. dark contrasts that I can make on the eye using those colors. Strangely, purple isn’t usually one of those colors that I can make that nice contrast with. And I say strangely, because it should be easy – purple ranges immensely from light to dark, from the reddish to the blueish, etc. So you’d think it would be easy, but not so in my experience. Put this time I feel like I did accomplish a nice fade. It all doesn’t look like one muddied color for once! I’m not sure what I did differently…maybe using the Yaby Pearl Paints as bases worked better for me. Anyway, here’s the look!

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPP (primer), Yaby Pearl Paints in purples (base), Crystal (inner lid), Noctournelle (middle lid), Jewel Tone (outer lid), Top Knot (crease), Vellum (highlight), Rave Pearlglide (lower lashline), Bobbi Brown Black Ink (upper liner), Plushlash mascara
  • Cheeks: True Romance BPB
  • Lips: Guerlain (expensive lipstick with no name lol!) + I can’t remember which gloss…sorry!

    This purple is a knock out and you are right, it’s the perfect blend of color. I’ve read other blogs mentioning yaby products and I think you’ve done an outstanding job.

    Thanks! I need to do a full post and review on the Yaby products. I came across them a few years ago on a chance encounter, and they really are amazing (and pretty cheap)!
