While purple is my favorite color I rarely wear purple-toned eyeshadow (or purple-ish clothes for that matter, how odd...). Sure I do wear it more often then pink, or bolder neon colors but I prefer to use blue or green over purple.
Though I am starting to reach for purple these days and I attribute that to this Lee Hyori advertisement that I saw.
I guess this is what they mean by having a muse or some sort of inspiration.
Hyori is obviously wearing colored contacts but word is purple hues help to play up and enhance brown eyes. While it's quite a 'to each their own' sort of deal, it is still widely recommended for brown eyed girls to don purple when in doubt and looking to use color.
This is also the look I wore for my MissxMatch shoot.

Not sure if the purple played up my eye color or anything but I find wearing plummy shades and having it smokey is more of my thing if I'm choosing to go purple. I have tried a more maroon or reddish toned once and wasn't a huge fan of it but I guess it's just about pairing it right and blending it with the right color combinations!
Are you fan of purple/plum eyeshadows?
Thanks for reading!
