Beauty Trend. Purple is the New Shade for Smokey Eyes!

August 13, 2010 • Beauty


Smokey eyes are back with a vengeance for this season’s top fall trends, and I'm not waiting until September to rock this sexy style! There's a twist, however, because instead of traditionally using charcoal gray, deep ebony or chestnut brown, purple is the new accent color that's sure to make your eyes radiate fierceness! When it comes to crafting the perfect smoky eye, celebrity and reality show super star,Kim Kardashian, knows how to deliver. The snap shots below reveal layers of beautiful shades of gray and purples; mainly consisting of eye shadow dustings carefully blended around her eyes.


To get the look, try using a cream eye shadow from NARS or a highly pigmented purple tone from Smashbox. If you don't opt for a cream shadow, (which lasts’ longer) try wetting your eye contour brush before applying your makeup (a tip I learned from my pageant days). Complete the look with black mascara and a wicked eye liner of choice. Voilà! Behold you have a gorgeous smokey eyes!
