#1: As a Sheer Wash of Colour
Plum shadow is surprisingly sophisticated when used as your only eyeshadow, especially as a sheer wash of colour. For this look, you're going to want to take a fluffy brush and a warm, pinky plum shadow with some shimmer to it. I chose this shade from the Wet N Wild Silver Lake Thrift Store Chic palette.
#2: To Line Your Lower Lash Line
Unexpected pops of bright colour on the lashline are so trendy right now! Use a small liner or concealer brush to line your bottom lashes with a bright shimmery royal plum shadow. I used Urban, from the Urban Decay Electric Pressed Pigment palette.
I used my liner brush to line my bottom lashlines, keeping the rest of the eye look neutral. I made sure my face was fully made up to create a flawless canvas for this look- I wanted the purple to be the first thing people saw on my face, with no dark circles or blemishes to distract. I contrasted the look with bold brows.
#3: A Soft Matte Look
For this last look, I used my LORAC Pro 2 palette to create a light, soft matte brown and plum eye.
I honestly can't remember exactly what I did for this look, but I really like it, so have a whole whack of pictures. I do remember that it involved a whole lot of blending.
I used the plum as the crease colour and the final effect was very nice. The matching plum lipstick really brought out the plum tone in my eyeshadow.
Yay! Blatant narcissism!
