Amethyst Eye Makeup

I am always going to be a fan of using any shade of purple on the eyes. It seems to be one of those unexpected colors that compliments every eye color!  Even the most recent Glamour magazine said that jewel tones such as amethyst or violet never fails when worn on award show red carpets.  Granted they’re discussing clothing, but I believe the same goes for eyeshadow and liner. Whenever I wear my amethyst shades, I always get compliments! Always.  It feels girly and feminine, which I’m always a fan of.

When creating this look, I really played up my eyes with about 4 shades of purple from an old Kat Von D palette that’s no longer available, but she has a new Innersteller palette, $46, with similar purple shimmer shades and mattes.

Here are also some MAC eyeshadow suggestions (all $15 each) you could use to get the same effect:

1. center of lid – lilac white shimmer shade : White Frost
2. tear duct area – violet shimmer : Creme de Violet
3. lower lash line – matte purple : Fig
4.  traced the crease of the eyelid – shimmer plum : Satellite Dreams
5.  Black winged eyeliner : Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in “Trooper”
I finished off my amethyst look with these makeup products :
