I love purple smokey eyes, and I think it’s one of the easier bright shades to pull off. Brown eyes, blue eyes, and especially green eyes look fantastic with the accent of purple. Therefore I wouldn’t classify it as a color challenge on its own, but paired with an orange lip – that is a true color challenge!
Usually when I wear purple smokey eyes I’ll pair it with cool-toned, blue-based pinks. That’s the obvious, and always beautiful pairing. But what happens when you pair it with a warm-toned lip? Then it’s magical. Pairing warm and cool tones is the new thing, didn’t you know?
