Purple Haze

Carmindy shares how you can get in touch with your inner Barney.

Hey ladies, now is the time for powering up your makeup with purple passion. This sizzling shade is all the rage and is actually very universal, as it looks great on pretty much any skin tone.


For a natural look, you want to play with a palette of sheer hues to highlight and contour your eyes. Try my Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired By Carmindy Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palette in Amethyst that allows you to create flirty plum eyes with three self-explanatory, marked shadows of highlight, lid and contour colors that glide on like watercolor and stay put all day. The colors in this collection work on all skin tones.

For a more disco diva approach to playing with purple, try Mac Pigment shadows in Violet. It’s a super shimmery loose powder that looks hot layered on the lid and smudged under the lower lashes. Pair it with black liner to look ultra rocking.

If it’s a hint of color you are going for, try lining your pretty peepers with a grape or eggplant eyeliner. For a soft finish use a pencil and for a little more magnetism, liquids work well. I love the liquid liner from Urban Decay in Crash or Ecstasy.

So go forth and bring out your inner Barney.

As an established makeup artist, many beauty brands send me samples of their latest products for consideration. I only write about the items that I truly love and I always abide by Daily Makeover’s Editorial Ethics Pledge in each of my Positively Beautiful posts.
