PURPLE HAZE

Colourful purple smokey eyes are a fresh new makeup trend to try and more wearable than you think. The dewy lilac finish is a fresh take on 70s glamour which will make dark and pale skins alike pop.

Think of it as your new season smokey eye, keep your foundation light and the rest of your makeup pared-back to keep the purple looking cool rather than heavy.

THE PRODUCTS:

Ellis Faas’ Creamy Eyes in Lilac Taupe is ideal for creating this look by adding a subtle wash of colour over the lids and blend upwards and outwards, smudging under the eyes slightly.
